This is THE CLASSIC in its field; the original before everything else starting getting "7 habits" attached to it. Covey did his best work in the first book, the rest are sort of like reheated leftovers if you've heard the original.
Very useful, practical techniques to get control of your life instead of letting life get control of you.
I found several of the tips in this book helpful. It was eye opening for me as far as trying to improve some of my work habits.
A great book for anyone who aspires to be more effective in every walk of life. I've used Covey's 7 Habits in staff development for school personnel.
I read this for a class in grad. school- not my cup of tea- but I know that others love the Covey concepts!
"Imagine the difficulty you might encounter if you and your boss had different assumptions regarding whos role it was to creat your job description."... This is an older book, but the information on successful people is just like it was written today.
