I'm skeptical of the self-help genre, which I admit likely poisoned my opinion of this one.

I picked it up hearing it was a classic and a book that would change my life. What it turned out to be instead was a wordy argument to advocate how the Protestant work ethic will solve all of our problems.

The author does have a lot of wisdom, don't get me wrong. Most of the points he touches on are common sense though with few original insights to be gained throughout 372 pages.

This version of The 7 Habits was the first of many, many iterations that Stephen Covey published under the 7 Habits umbrella. No doubt due to the success of the franchise. As a self-help reader I can vouch for the worth of the original though I have not read any of the others.

It's too easy to scoff at the habits as obvious, just as it's too easy to scoff at self-help in general. Actions speak louder than words, and putting habits like Covey's into practice is hard work. If you're curious about self-help, or maybe a little skeptical about its usefulness, then I recommend starting here.

If you're debating whether to read this or not, I've got to say that it's totally worth it. Stephen Covey boiled down the essence of great leadership--and life in general--into 7 solid, easy-to-understand principles that anyone can apply. Could not recommend this more highly!

Didn't get past the first chapter. Poorly written and organized. Can't believe this book has earned such raves and sales. Very disappointed.
