    "The 8th Habit - A very readable book"

    Stephen Covey is an inspirational man who has a very grounded approach to all areas of life. His books are very easy to read and always give you a lot to think about. I would advise anyone already in or wanting to move into a leadership role whatever that might be to read this book.

    "Very good"

    I've been avoiding the "7 habits", since I tend to be an anti-joiner, and it got real popular, almost "cult" like. Also, I tried to tackle the book a long time ago, and got bogged down right away.

    This is a great listen, as well as great content. I listened to the "6 hour" version, but now I'm thinking I should get the 12 hour version.

    One warning about this version -- particularly near the beginning the adbridgement is really lame. A professional-sounding announcer (not a compliment, from me) introduces each snip, which can be amazingly short sometimes, "sound-bite" sized. It seemed like they quit this annoying habit (!) about a third or half the way through (or I just tuned it out).

    Even so, if you want a bit more than a "taste" of the 7 habits, I recommend this book -- it has the potential to be life-changing. I'm wondering if I should go get a "7 habits" organizer. Not sure I ready for that, but it sure inspires me to do some kind of follow-through so that it's more than just a read.

    The abridged version is very well compiled. The short introductions between the book excerpts are a good idea and very helpfull.

    Story
    "Wish had it earlier - although we all know it!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People & The 8th Habit (Special 6-Hour Abridgement) to be better than the print version?

    Yes...This book is a encyclopedia of the self help literature from the past centuries. The author has summarized the main teachings about the topic into seven basic tenats. The stress is on self improvement and principle change - supported by not just vague or ambigous, open to interpretation ways to improve one self, he teaches specific examples in daily life, touch points in our work/life where we can start making changes and see expected results. The best part of the book - this does not teach you to be pretentious, or one of the 'How to manage your perception' prescriptions, it states that to achieve harmony and as a result being effective, one needs to make fundamental changes to one's guiding principles and the rest follows. The author cites great examples and suggestions.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People & The 8th Habit (Special 6-Hour Abridgement)?

    The discussion on going from perosnal level of effectiveness to greatness!


    What does Stephen R. Covey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The expressions of speech, first hand knowledge from the master and above all a great well paced peep into a great way to organise one's self and beyond.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Emotional bank Account


    Any additional comments?

    One thing missing was if there was some complementing material with the audio file, especially where they base the discussion on graphs and diagrams, it is better to have the visuals as well..Maybe in future, for books where they talk of conceptual models to explain something, the audio file could be accompanied with perhaps those few pages from the book, so user doesnt miss out on anything at all.

    "Good but dry"

    This is a good book, the principles are great. It can be hard to follow and can get really dry at times, but is still good business sense

    "So practical!"

    In this book, the author presents 7 things that need to be mastered in order for the reader to become a highly effective and successful person. The 8th habit is a wonderful bonus to read!

    "Useful and Engaging"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People & The 8th Habit (Special 6-Hour Abridgement) to be better than the print version?

    Not better. If you will only get one or the other, you need to get the book. However, using both print and audio is great.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. It is useful listening to a section and having some time to reflect before listening to the next section.

    Story
    "Good but weak"
    What did you love best about The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People & The 8th Habit (Special 6-Hour Abridgement)?

    Not woven too well. Hard to pick out the seven among the eighth habit even though I knew them well. It was more confusing than enlightening.


    What did you like best about this story?

    He attempted to add the seven habits and eighth together but just didn't pull it off as I expected.


    What does Stephen R. Covey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His voice emphasizes points that he intended to make that you wouldn't read.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Put it all together from the seven and that's how you go from good to great. Mostly, find your voice so you can help others find theirs.

    "Excellent as Covey used to be"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People & The 8th Habit (Special 6-Hour Abridgement) to be better than the print version?

    I read the 8th habit in print version but this audibook is a compilation of this book plus a walkthrough the other 7 habits. Thats why I enjoy it so much


    What did you like best about this story?

    The compilation and walk-through the 8 habits

    If you could sum up The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People & The 8th Habit (Special 6-Hour Abridgement) in three words, what would they be?

    Stephen Covey will remain a legend!! Even though he isn't around to continue adding to his infinite wisdom, his teachings will flutter through the minds for all eternity. Remarkable individual!!
