Description

If you want to live a fulfilling life of success and happiness, then this book is the perfect choice for you. The book reveals seven habits of the highly effective people around us, and how we too can be effective if we incorporate some of these habits.

Summary of the Book

Stephen R. Covey did a lot of research on self-help books when he was doing his doctoral thesis. During this time, he noticed that the books from the 1920’s concentrated on developing one’s personality traits, and the books before the 1920’s emphasized on character development. In this book, he speaks of seven habits of people who are effective and live a good life because of it. It discusses three stages of character development: dependence, independence and interdependence. This stage marks the progress from dependence to interdependence. This takes place during the growing years of a child till the time they learn how to take care of themselves. Later, they learn to live with others in a cooperative manner and this is termed interdependence. The next three traits are about interdependence. As social animals, humans need to work and learn with one another. It is important for us to form beneficial relationships, learn empathy, and work as a team. The seventh trait, or habit, is called Sharpen the Saw. This stage is also the renewal stage that is concerned with a person can learn to rejuvenate their energy through techniques like prayer, yoga, meditation and reading. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People was included in Time magazine’s list of 25 Most Influential Management Books.

Over hyped book......

To begin with, it speaks about habits which are common sense, one would have learnt in their life. And secondly, he iterates same things again and again throughout the books making us feel that we have screwed up our lives and he is the only savior who can bring us back in form.!

There is only one habit of highly successful people, and that is that they DON'T waste their time reading self-help nonsense.If you want to read something to better yourself, read educational information that will ...

Timeless principles

President Bill Clinton wanted to integrate this book's principles in the white house. The top leaders of multi-billion dollar organizations (whose very work is to make money and drive change) have been recommending this book. Do you think they are fools?

Some flipkarters here are "advising" about "not wasting your money" and that this book is "not worth your time". Do you think these people are highly intelligent?

Take some time and decide for yourself whether you want to buy this book or...

A good book.

I bought this book as I was looking for some answers about my habits, mentality and priorities in life. I had a lot of expectations from this book and I thought that it will change the way in which I think. But itâ??s not something that can help a person. Just that its structured and shows a way to handle life in a better way.

This book is a good read and does give a lot of options and ways to manage the life and relationships. Like getting ready with the end in mind and listen to the other...

One of the best books I have ever read!!!!

This is one of the best books I have ever read. The fact that it talks about character development and not personality development is the strongest point and will only be understood by people who would accept that they are not there where they want to be in life.

It talks about how not to use tricks and means to influence people for personal gain. It is about building your character!!!

Practice what it says and it will transform you into a better human being!!

Change your paradigm

I don't know why, but I used to have a great bias against this book, thinking it was one of the many shallow-self-help books. But after reading a couple of good reviews from other authors I admire, I decided to read it, and I'm glad I did.
The central advice I get from the book is that being effective is not matter of techniques but of being better oneself through acquiring the 7 habits he suggests. He illustrates and explains quite well his ideas.
Warning: it is not light reading and require...

masterpiece from the master

The book is ever great and realistic , specially it makes a lot more sense then most of other self help and success books. Its based on hard facts and true fundaments.Author never wrote anything about supernatural stuff of hocus pocus like most of them
its just about true life management and importance of character ethics.........
stephen covey is great with his neat language and ideas. A true master piece probably best ever. Thanks.............

Bad Paper quality

Do not buy such a brilliant book. The paper quality is so bad, almost disrespectful to the content of the book. Just as good Covey gets in this book, the paper is sub standard. I wold say not buy this book at all and rather get a soft copy or audio. You cannot highlight pages without showing on the back page.
