Even Better!

The original text by Dr. Covey is preserved, however, after each section, Sean, one of his sons, shares real world and up close and personal examples that bring the reader deeper and more intimately into the content and it's real life application.

‘03 Audio

I purchased this under the impression that it’s an updated audio version (as the other one is 17 years old). Regrettably, this is not the case — it is just a ‘copy and paste’ from the 2003 audio, with additional add-ins by his son. You’re going to have to suffer the terrible audio quality or buy the kindle version. :/

I do not recommend this version

I have read this book numerous times in the past and was excited to hear the new bonus content. Unfortunately, Sean Covey does not deliver anything new or illuminating. His reading is tedious and his tone is almost smug as if he is the heir to an intellectual kingdom and should automatically be recognized as the new king of the Covey legacy. Well, sorry, but he is a copy of a copy, at best. I recommend the 7 Habits, just not this version.

Fantastic but...

The material itself was fantastic, but the audio engineer needs to be slapped. A book this popular should have undergone some QC where Stephen Covey’s vocals should have had a “de-esser” on them as his “S” sounds were often over the top and distracting to me. And Sean Covey’s overall volume needed to be brought way up to match his dad’s original recording. I realize these are relatively nit picky, but I’d imagine the people who recorded them were professionals and should definitely have known better!

If you listen once, the benefit is in multiples

Listen to Steven over and over. Be captivated by the habits. Listen to his son be impacted by his father and then by the habits' deep impact into your soul.

Achievable

The 7 Habits of highly effective people are definitely achievable. Many individuals are living many of those habits; however, society some times prevent people from practicing such beneficial attributes which are highly beneficial for society! Perfect 10! Loved it!

Easily my top non-fictional read of all time!

Amazing how the principles in Stephen Covey’s applies in 2020. This are timeless teachings. I finished listening with a new mindset to my life, essentially a changed person. The narration by the father and Son ( a wonderful addition) makes this audio book a more valuable purchase
