I really wanted to like this book. I was looking forward to this book. The hype was incredible. But what I was treated to was nothing but repetition, repetition, repetition. Sure, things are how you look at it. But where do we go from here? Do I need 100 pages of the old woman/young woman optical illusion that we have ALL seen in school? I don't think so. Covey's statements of personal faith are not going to be agreeable with all religions, and frankly, were irrelevant to the book. The First Habit, for me, is going to be not wasting my time with books such as this. I was severely disappointed.

This is a book which will change your life! I have finally found a self-help book which really concentrates on profound matters and provides readers with a systematic set of exercises to improve their life. I have finally found an American author who claims that success is never fulfilled until it is shared with love and understanding. All other theories on life improvement seem to focus on private success, money-making and antiseptic strategies on how to persuade people to do things you don't even believe in. Follow this magnificent book and you will learn how to live and love better.

As I have read the first chapter of this book in the Uni library, I have decided to buy it and I was not disappointed. The concepts illustrated give the reader a shock on how his life has been going on without his consicous control!
I would advise it to people who are willing to read and CHANGE.

Dieses Buch diente für mich zur Vorbereitung für einen firmeninternen Kurs, der darauf abzielte, daß wir Mitarbeiter in unseren Jobs effektiver arbeiten. Um es vorweg zu nehmen: meiner Meinung nach kann man sich diese trockene Lektüre schenken. Ohne einen begleitenden Kurs in denen man die sieben Grundprinzipien durch Interaktion mit den Mitgliedern einer Gruppe erlernt, ist man einem Bündel von psychologischen Theorien hilflos ausgeliefert.
Das Credo des Buches ist ohnehin in zwei Sätzen gesagt: wer weiß, was er will und seine Ziele genau kennt, der arbeitet automatisch effektiv. Wer diese nicht kennt, eiert in der Menge mit und braucht sich nicht zu wundern, daß er unzufrieden ist und er eine für ihn nachteilige Beurteilung seiner Leistungen erfährt...
Covey macht somit keinen Unterschied zwischen Berufs- und Privatleben. Schön, ein wichtiges Thema, das jeden angeht. Doch braucht man für diese Weisheit ein derart mühsam zu lesendes Buch? Zumindest wäre eines wünschenswert, welches den Sachverhalt ein wenig zügiger vermittelt.

I like Stephen Covey because he changed some of my paradigms. However I doubt if the seven habits are going to be the center of my focus. I would rather focus on Tony Robbins' teachings. They seem more effective.

If this book doesn't change you nothing will. Don't waste time reading reviews, read the book. Don't be fooled though, these steps require practice. Don't buy this book looking for an easy change.

This is nothing more than a collection of new industry/psycho babble that can be boiled down into one phrase: Use common sense. Covey is affiliated with the Franklin Time Management system which is a practical application for time management principles, but I still haven't figured out what value Covey has added to the organization. I did enjoy Covey's illustrations of the 7 Habits that he used from his own life, but the forced buzz-phrases and funky terminology he used to encapsulate the habits was irritating at worst and useless at best.
I've never been one for using exclusive language in any industry if it's not entirely necessary, because it seems so pompous and vacuous. Covey's book is full of this garbage and he emphasizes his terminology so much as to seem that he's shoving it down your throat. In addition, the habits are not new earth-shattering discoveries, they are just the same principles we've already learned, just re-packaged.
If you have common sense, use it and don't bother with this book.

I'm ordinarily wary of books like this that promise to transform your life within the span of 300 pages, but I figured 10 million readers (as the cover states) can't be wrong.
I pray I'm never trapped in an elevator with any of them.
After trudging through Covey's scary, cultish gobblygook, I have to wonder, "Are people so desperate for guidance that they actually believe this garbage." The book is about as insightful as my dog and about as deep as an episode of Jenny Jones. When a follower complains to Covey that his marriage is over, Covey recommends (over and over) that the man "love her." Wow, why didn't I think of that.
Ever see "Being There", with Peter Sellers? I'm betting Covey and Sellers have a lot in common.

Covey has done a cut and paste job of other self-help books. it is easy to write a book after having reviewed other people's books. I respect anthony robbins (after all a man who can make you walk on fire must know something) and Jim Rohn, who is a successful businesman first and an speaker second. what is coverys's claim to fame? why should we believe him? i find his language rather too fluffy and wonder if he is for real. all said and done , i did find 2 pages in the book useful, where he decribes circle of concern and circle of influence. other than that, i think covery is prejudiced, wants to impose his ideas on others and lives in some dream world of his and frankly , is a CON MAN.
