WARNING: This is not the actual book The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey. Do not buy this book summary and review if you are looking for a full copy of this insightful and impactful book, which can be found back on the Amazon search page.
Instead, we have already read The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and pulled out some of the best ideas, insights and take-away points to give you a comprehensive chapter-by-chapter summary and review in an engaging and easily digestible format. In doing so, unfortunately we do not have the space to discuss all of the many important ideas and anecdotes found in the book. To get it all, you need to order the full book. This concise summary and review works best as an unofficial study guide or companion to read alongside this important book.

I recommend you don't purchase this book I have done several courses, have read 4 texts, was looking for a useful summary I could share with staff, this is definitely not it. Delete material! Overall rating zero but can't get away with that hence 1 rating.
"Not a reflection"
I finished the full book before I started this....
I turned it off after about the first 3 minutes.
This did not reflect the essence of the original book. I recommend investing your time in the full book.
"Great book. Summary is lacking."
There is more advertisement and that disclaimer than actual summary. I was hoping the summary chapters were summaries of the actual chapters in the book or there were seven chapters/summaries, one for each of the seven habits. The summary is definitely lacking structure.
The recommendation of other best selling books is nice.
"Boring, boring, boring"
I was hoping to have something a little more engaging, but the narrator is downright robotic. Self help books and summaries should have some feeling behind them.
Maybe, we'll see how I feel next time I want a summary.
Very robotic. No feeling in it.
Honestly, I listened to maybe 5 minutes of it. Couldn't even take the rest.
"Need a rundown of "7 habits"? Read a website."
Several of the "chapters" in this summary are just marketing for other products. More real content would be needed to take this anywhere beyond 1 or 2 stars. Apart from that, it simply confirms my worst impressions of the self-help genre.
This review is exceptionally shallow. It does not present any arguments from the book (which I assume are there) - almost only reads the chapter headlines and sales pitches aloud.
There are no characters. The question does not apply.
Again, no scenes. The review is so short, that I would have cut nothing. Additional material was needed for me to get much out of this.
I thought this was the actual book.
the actual book
I could have bought the book
none, I think this is silly
"Empoyer Approved! LOL"
We are studying this book in a book club format at work. Members of the class have been invited by the CFO and are future stars of the company. As the HR Administrator I have been included in the class. I love how we are able to take 2 hours each week and discuss the book, how it relates to our jobs, and how it relates to our lives. Excellent motivational material.
I enjoy all of the life relating stories Stephen adds to his book. I can relate personally and professionally.
