Show Synopsis

In the 7 Habits series, international bestselling author Stephen R. Covey showed us how to become as effective as it is possible to be.

Don't order this. It's not clear what edition you'll get. I received the "Miniature Edition", which is a 2 inch square book whose purpose for existence I can't figure out.


First habit of highly effective people? Never order a miniature book.

Avoid Miniature editions

I thought I was purchasing the book "The 8th Habit". Instead I got a 2 inch by 3 inch book that is a 1/2 inch thick. I will be much more careful before I buy from this seller again.

8th Habit is absolutely jam packed with support for growth and happiness based on finding our voice and the power we have within ourselves to choose. It had a DVD with some of the most powerful illustrations intermingled as examples of the sink the premise deep within.

eye opening

I have read critics on stephen r covey..but i can't resist to find that his latest book on 8th Habit will open the eye of mine, and I believe for everyone who want to give his book a room to ponder upon.

8th habit is not something 'missed' when he writes The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The 8th is more on to add different dimension in applying 7 habits. For example, if we need to sharpen the saw, 8th habit will shed the light of physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual aspect to be sharpened in our daily life. we can't just be complacent with our emotional 'sharpen-the-saw' because we have 4 components in our selves.

Covey manages to put this into perspective. When discussed about physical, intellectual and emotional aspects, I would say - I agree 100%. But when talking about spiritual aspect, his definition is little bit diffrent from other book I read - Spiritual Quotient by Danah Zohar.

Anyhow, it is worth to understand his model on recognizing the voice of ours, and inspiring others. Once we find the relevance of the model, it is easy to develop self-model to work on success - either it to be rich, expert in knowledge, stable in emotional or highly undistracted spiritual growth.

I would recommend for those who are searching the model to improve oneself or school or company , please consider this book one of them.
