Covey stands the test of time surprisingly well.  While we see this more as a book for college graduates, it still works as an annual review document.  The stories are great, and the recommendations are immediately do-able.

Many managers would do well to simply implement the sharpening the saw habit...that alone is worth the price of admission.

I first read this book as a junior in college.  The book was a real positive influence on me as it helped me choose to do the things that really mattered to me in the long(er) run.  The listening, being proactive, and delegating lessons have been invaluable to me in my personal life and in my career.  I highly recommend it!

I recently finished 7 habits. It may well become one of my primary documents which means it will be reviewed quarterly to keep me fresh. The biggest concepts for me were the P/PC balance and important vs. urgent.

This definitely a book for people to read early in their lives.   A lot of life experience and learning negates the "wow" factor of the book.

 The review seems good. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People will surely be a good guide for everyone who wants to be effective in their own fields.  3850 N. Powerline Road Deerfield Beach, FL 33073

This is an inspiring book to everyone who wants to soar high on their goals in life. The book only proves to us that nothing is impossible if we follow the proper concept and ideals to be an efficient person. - Arthur van der Vant
