Publisher's Summary

Book summary: The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, by Stephen R. Covey.

For the price of a coffee and a time investment of roughly two percent of your day, I believe the wisdom in this audiobook to be well worth its value. Here's my sales pitch: The writing will not be quite up to the same standard; if you need a story behind each point to reinforce it, then please, go and buy the original. However, if like me, you aren't a fan of the "fluff" that comes along with most books and would much rather skip to the nuggets of wisdom and actionable content in a very easily absorbed and understood way including key takeaways - then I believe this is the audiobook for you. If you already have the original but would like a more "straight-to-the-point" guide to go alongside it, this is perfect. 

Inside this audiobook, you’ll learn:

  • How to become proactive instead of reactive.
  • How to write your own personal mission statement.
  • Efficient principles for personal management.
  • How to always reach win-win solutions.
  • How to become a highly effective person.

Save yourself time and money. I am only releasing summaries of the books that have made a true positive impact in my life. If you decide to purchase, I truly hope you enjoy and benefit from it. 

Amplify your knowledge in a simple, efficient manner. Take action, get your copy today! 

Please note that this summary is not the original book and is meant to be listened to as a supplement to the original.

Impressive!

This summary is a great refresher to the actual book. It focuses on the major points outlined by the author. It is a quick to understand which generalizes the major themes of the seven habits. Impressive!

Very poor - made no sense

Unfortunately I will be sending this back and looking for the full book as opposed to the summary. The book mentions a load of stuff straight away that the listener has no context of (which presumably will have been explained in the full book). I knew this wasn't for me so stopped it in its tracks.
