Powerful 7 Habits

Written by Benjamin H. from Acampo, CA on September 28th, 2006

  • Book Rating: 5/5

I found this to be one of the better Audio Books that I have received. It was a succinct review of the 7 habits with very applicable narration. For someone new to the 7 Habits this is a good introduction and is good enough to listen to several times over. Highly recommended!

Not as good as the original of course but I still enjoyed it and learned from it. It motivated me to work on the skills I learned in the first book.

Not the best

Well, perhaps traffic was extra bad that day. Perhaps not. In any event, I felt that I pushed play somewhere in the middle of this CD. Not very informative. Makes a few too many assumptions about human nature as well. I don't recommend...
