Critic reviews

“Even in our conflicted times, now and again we catch a glimpse of the better thing. Dr. Covey shows us how to seek that better thing and transcend our deepest disputes.” (Archbishop Desmond Tutu)
"You can ‘get’ Stephen Covey’s message in five pages - or less. But I dearly hope you will carefully read and apply every page. Stephen has given us a precious gift - but, like most profound ideas, it is the daily, conscious practice that can or will transform your life.” (Tom Peters, author of The Brand You 50 and Re-imagine: Business Excellence in a Disruptive Age)
"In The 3rd Alternative, Dr. Covey inspires us to think differently about solving problems than we ever have before. We must set aside our differences, including our boundaries, languages, economics, politics and cultures and work hand in hand together to create solutions which are greater than the problems we now face.” (Muhammad Yunus, Nobel Peace Prize winner 2006)

Synergise

Great summary of this book - didn't feel overly brief - takes the habits seek first to understand and synergise and adds more depth - for all seven habits fans this is a must listen

Important Message for Our Time

If you could sum up The 3rd Alternative in three words, what would they be?

This is a great book about changing your perspective from being a 2-alternative thinker to being someone who pursues a 3rd Alternative. Third alternative thinkers work for Win-Win and produce the most meaningful change and the most positive results. Let your mind pursue the 3rd Alternative and begin to find new answers to your most difficult problems.
