Glad I only bought the book byte

Not worth the effort
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
I guess maybe I didn't read the description properly - the bookbyte format was totally useless to me. I don't want to hear a short summary!
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Coaching for Performance?
it was too short, not too long
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
- Powerful Lessons in Personal Change
- By: Stephen R. Covey
- Narrated by: Stephen R. Covey
- Length: 13 hrs and 4 mins
Stephen R. Covey's book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, has been a top seller for the simple reason that it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Celebrating its 15th year of helping people solve personal and professional problems, this special anniversary edition includes a new foreword and afterword written by Covey that explore whether the 7 Habits are still relevant and answer some of the most common questions he has received over the past 15 years.
The message is simple

An effective way to cover a leadership essential
Would you listen to The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People again? Why?
Yes - I think I would probably need to listen a couple of times to get the most from it - like many good stories there is always more to hear from a retelling. However it can get a bit repetitive and heavy going so I would want the ability to dip in and out.
What other book might you compare The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People to, and why?
I'm only just starting to use audiobooks from leadership development point of view - I don't have a big enough personal library to make a meaningful comparison
Have you listened to any of Stephen R. Covey’s other performances? How does this one compare?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No - it's too long to begin with. I listened while driving to work & was able to stop and start without losing too much, though I have to listen to small chapters again from time to time
