    Stephen Covey is good ... but he is repackaging for you the work of Napoleon Hill. Most people find Covey easier to listen to than Hill, so give it a shot. But this book isn't so much about success in achieving big goals as it is about living a principled and balanced life.

    To my disappointment, this was a single track - one CD book. While it does serve as a quick reference to the material in the book and gets its point across, I would have enjoyed a little more depth on the discussion. Like Cliffnotes, you miss the character and the deeper meaning without a build up of whys and hows. Worth a listen to those that want a quick overview, but I wish I had spent my checkout on something a bit more substantial.

    I am sure it is much better to attend one of Steven Covey's workshops than to listen to this abridged version. Between his voice (which is fluff and mushy) and the narrators, I was happy it was only one cd.

    Perhaps the entire book was better but this version is a cliffnote version only suited to those who want to brush up on material they already know. For those looking for motivation, look elsewhere. I can see how this was wildly successful a long time ago, because most of what you hear here is repeated in newer motivational material. As for the actual presentation of the CD, I found it very annoying to go from two different presenters. First, there is a professional reader that summarizes the material and then there is Stephen Covey himself (poorly recorded live) that throws in a story here and there. It goes back and forth like this throughout. Avoid..

    I should have read this book years ago, really a great start to thinking differently and turning ones life around in a more proactive manner. Great Narration of the Audio book. It had me anticipating where I had left off each day. I'll be reading this again in the next couple of months.

    It was an alright book but nothing miraculous. Simple points that are stretched out a little too much for me.

    I like the book because it advocates for being a healthy, well-balanced person who's first commitment is to his/her own integrity. It talks about how being effective first involves mastery of the self. After that has been attained, a person can successfully work with others. It also goes on to explain the need for constant growth and how everyone should make that apart of their daily life. I believe in the principles laid out in this book and find it a refreshing change from most books in the self-help genre.
