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.

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.

Easier to understand than the original.

Great for a quick to understand, if you do not have the time to listen to the entire book. It sums it up and easier to understand than 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!

Great Overview!

The 7 Habits Of Highly Effect people is very deep and requires a lot of revisitation and practice to master. This overview by In a Nutshell Publishing is not enough by itself, but is a great way to get an overview of the material which is hard to “dive right into” as the original book and even the official abridged version are very dense. Listening to this great overview several times before, during, and after reading the material seems very helpful in solidifying the material in one’s mind.

Not a worthwhile summary for me - too many gaps

I was hopeful that This would be a good review and summary of Steven R. Covey’s book. However, this was too superficial. There is not enough explanation and meat behind the concepts. Not a good use of my time.

I really value this book.

It has an extensive proportion of information including.The last penchant for extremely productive people is perhaps the most basic in light of the way that without it the others are no possible. I really value this book.
