Well done

I like the summary, and the narrator tone. In chapter of time management, I found that he overlap between the part3 and part4 of paradigm of time management.

Say that this book changed my life

To say that this book changed my life is a major understatement. Ever since I first read this book, back in the '80s, I've applied many of Stephen's processes to both my personal and professional life. I've become more efficient and more focused on my goals. I've become more successful professionally, and I reached goals that I would have thought impossible before. I've recommended this book and have given it to individuals who struggle in focusing their direction.

Benefiting my business

As a network marketer, I originally purchased this book with the intent of it benefiting my business. And while it has, I quickly realized that it was beneficial for so much more than just my business. My personal life has been hugely impacted by the things mentioned in this book - particularly by the idea that "we can choose how to respond in every situation." Its a personal development gold mine!

It also helps you understand things

This is a good listen for anyone. Especially if you are a young adult, in the business / corporate field. It also helps you understand things, which can be used in your relationships. I have purchased copies of this, as Christmas gifts, for my subordinates and co-workers. I highly recommend it.

People Should be Required listening for Everyone

This book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People Should be Required listening for Everyone. Being Personally Responsible and being Accountable for ones actions and reactions is such a lost feature of most Americans. It is so much easier to blame something out side of me of how I feel, or how I respond to any stimulus. When someone adopts the features of 7 Habits. . . . they will be in a completely small minority of Highly Effective people.

fantastic auto book

I listen to this in my car sometimes while driving on the highway or waiting in traffic. Not distracting at all, it's more of a subconscious mind training for me.

This book is full of moments

You'll LISTEN something and say, "YES! EXACTLY!" or LISTEN something profound and just sit dumbfounded, going "Wow," and you have to take a moment to reflect on it? This book is full of moments like that.
