Too old for young teenagers

I found that some of the information was fantastic but it was too Americanised and too old for my 12 year old.

Worth a listen

There were some good snippets throughout the book, I wouldn't say it is amazing, but if you can only pick out a few things and it makes a difference to your life and happiness, then it is well worth a listen.

Self-Help for Teens

Would you listen to The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens again? Why?

This is a great ride and discuss book. While riding with your teenager you can stop and discussion each Habit. It could be reviewed when having trouble with mastering a habit without having to redo the entire book.

What did you like best about this story?

I like that various voices that read the parts of contributing teenagers. This breaks-up the information in a way that makes it interesting.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Even though I'm no longer a teenager, the book has helped me relate to the teenagers with which I work each day. It reminds me of the challenges teens face.

Surprise!

I have one son who loves to listen and one that doesn't. BUT when the two listened to Covey, they both laughed out loud. From my non-listener, that is high praise. Truly.

Great book for both child and parent...

I am a believer of Steven Covey's 7 habits, read it and listened to it as a young professional, have used it many times in both my personal and business life. When my son's 9th grade summer reading requirement was 7 habits for teens...I was thrilled. I ordered thinking I would just breeze through and listen to parts...ended up listening to the book and then listening again with him. I would recommend it to any parent who has a child who like to set goals, plays sports, and win in life. Sean does a great job reading his words, and the kids telling their storie and view point add some interest. My son enjoyed it also.

I'm in my 40s. and enjoyed every minute

loved it. I started listening to it because I challenged my daughter to also. she also is learning from it. I offered her $100 if she would listen to it. best investment I'll probably ever make. I see the changes in her already. priceless

I loved it but.....

I loved the book and the man who read it. But there was some parts in the books about half way through that would glitch out so i had to skip bast like 5 minutes each time of valuable information. Also some of the kids who read some story's were hard to understand and I wish there was more different voices. in addition I totally recommend for every and any teen.

Great book!

Easy and entertaining to listen to. A great start or intro to the book for teens that don't like to read. I only wish I had ordered the workbook to go along with it.

Surprisingly Awesome!

Great for any age. Perfect for 14 to 17 year olds. Very well written and well suited for audible version. Expected it to be good and was pleasantly surprised with overall quality. Related to his fathers book but different enough to stand alone as a terrific piece.

Great for teens

I used this book in my classroom as a 9th grade teacher- the students overwhelmingly enjoyed the book, which says a lot in itself. I had students years later coming back up to me telling me how they used this book to help them. Highly recommend!
