      I would like to make clear that David Hasselhoff s appearance in this review should in no way be deemed to imply that I endorse or support his career in any way whatsoever.Thank you for your understanding FIVE PRACTICAL HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLEFirst, a few comments on the seven so called habits identified in the book, namely 1.Be proactive, 2.Begin with the End in Mind, 3 Put First Things First, 4 Think Win Win, 5 Seek First to Understand, then to be understood, 6 Synergize, and7 Sharpe [...]

      Ever since I worked at the bookstore at Virginia Tech, I would watch the douchebag business major undergrads buy this book for their classes and look down upon them, and the book by association, as, well, douchebags This is not to say that all undergrad business majors are douchebags I ve met one really really awesome one Additionally, after working at a major university bookstore, a majority of all undergrad students can be fairly classified as douchebags Jebus.Consequently, I never picked up t [...]

      I think the sign of a great book is when, right inside the cover there is a pull out brochure that encourages you to order of the authors products that s some quality shit when you see that.But the book itself, well it has charts flow charts, boxed charts, circle charts, up and down charts, sideways charts, charts with arrows, charts with triangles and charts with dotted lines.This book uses words like synergy and proactive peatedly This book has application suggestions This book is shiny and i [...]

      Hon, did you sleep okay You look kinda weird Well, I don t know how to say this Yes I had this dream where I talked with God Was She black No, I m serious I did It was, like, utterly real It was the most real thing that s ever happened to me.The rest of this review is available elsewhere the location cannot be given for policy reasons

      One of the most highlighted books on Kindle, proving that human beings thrive on snappy buzz quotes written by middle managers like David Brent who partake of the music of M People and Steely Dan Kool The Gang, and whose souls were long ago vacuumed out in a boardroom somewhere during a PowerPoint presentation Regard What you are shouts so loudly in my ears I cannot hear what you say.This incoherent drivel has the most highlights Regard the faux profound self importance of the cannot in this sen [...]

      This was recommended reading following on from a course and I found it to be an odd mix of the homely and the disturbing.On the whole it s probably the dogmatic air of absolute certainty that I find disturbing, that and the way he describes how he reduced his son to tears over keeping the garden in good order Reading this book is rather like having a very one sided conversation with a particularly earnest and opinionated drunk who isn t shy to jab you in the chest with a fore finger to underline [...]

    8. Pouting Always on said:

      An okay book if you don t know how to manage your life it s probably really helpful but if you ve thought about how to make yourself productive or effective a lot of it s intuitive Also like a lot of these books can only tell you things you have to make the changes yourself which is always the hard part so This one was better written than most which I appreciate.

      Thank you Emma for the recommendation this book so meant so much to me I will keep the memories and the knowledge with me forever Thank you for being an awesome friend

    11. Nora on said:

      I read only the first twenty pages of this book, and that was enough to make me want to gouge out my own eyeballs It is so repetitive and the author just gives all these ridiculous, impossible analogies that you re supposed to relate to or learn something from He goes on for pages about himself and his job and his wife and kids Totally unnecessary It really is all just common sense stuff that you already know, but preached at you over the course of pages and pages of utter nonsense For example, [...]

      Oh my Gawd, how much did I hate this one We had to read this the summer before a freshman college Intro to Business Class perhaps I read it at the wrong age When Steven Covey starts talking about his kid mowing the lawn and the motivation behind ith Needless to say, I only got through about 2 of the 7 habits I guess I m not a highly effective person And I will not be purchasing any of Mr Covey s time management calendar systems either, thank you very much.

    14. Michael Finocchiaro on said:

      I found this book a bit condescending and with too much of a religious feel to it It also felt a little insincere and manipulative I remember that everyone was reading it and swearing by it and that the author must have made millions on seminars and the like, but I found it too close to a cultish mentality and was unsurprised when several adepts of the book later tried dragging me in to pyramid schemes like Amway Empty platitudes are not really incredibly useful Read GTD instead

      Inspirational, developmental, and practical what a combination The principles of behavior covered in this groundbreaking and long respected book are of great worth to anyone seeking success in career, family, or any other aspect of their life Covey discusses first the actions we must take or habits we must develop internally first getting our heads and hearts right first These include being proactive, beginning with the end in mind, and putting first things first These constitute the private vic [...]

    16. Emma Sea on said:

      I m not able to rate this fairly as a reader coming to it in 2017 This was one of the first personal development books, and the other 4 thousand books I ve read on the topic all borrow from it heavily The thing is, they borrow from it, and then make it better in every way interesting, relevant, better writing, concise writing, better anecdotes and examples.This is a classic, but I don t recommend reading it.

    17. Corinne on said:

      I had to read this book for a professional development seminar Then, I re read it again, for personal reasons It s a book that is rich and dense, but worth the time and energy.The first notion that struck me was the fundamental shift of perception , which changes our perspective on things in matter of seconds When I rose above myself and did this, all of a sudden I was not the same person Quite a few things that I ve been trying very hard to change for a long time, changed almost immediately.The [...]

    18. Rowena on said:

      This book was just alright I was slightly disappointed as I have had this book recommended to me by countless people so I did expect better I felt it could have been condensed to a quarter of its size easily.The book was also written in the 80s and I could easily tell personally, I feel it s in need of a 21st Century update I did give it 3 stars though because there were parts I found useful and interesting, especially the section about writing a mission statement for oneself I guess this book m [...]

      I bought The Seven Habits at a yard sale for 1 with little knowledge of its contents Years later, when my life dipped to a low ebb of meaning and motivation, I picked it off the shelf in hopes of finding a spark Inside I found wisdom, compassion, a direct approach and a love of humanity The result wasn t immediately transformative The methods and techniques Covey espouses didn t fall into place and turn me into a whirlwind of positive productivity Reading The Seven Habits was just one of many mo [...]

      This book changed how I worked and how I set goals It isn t the feel good self help book it appears Read again before going back to work in January 2014 I think it s fitting that the first time I read this, I was in grad school and planning for the future, and that I would read it again as I leave behind the career I was planning for back then Well, somewhat I m letting music librarianship go and focusing on being an assistant director in the library, and also to figuring out what the next move [...]

      This is my husband s favorite book Obviously he is effective than I am Dividing my life into squares, writing in those squares the things I have to do, then doing the most important may make me effective, but is that my best life Choosing to do the things that I want to do rather than the things I need to do, adds interest to my existence If I take the scenic route, and run out of gas doing it, I find adventure, and often meet AAA wrecker drivers who could write books on their experiences By fo [...]
