Book Review- 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey

A good read to inspire and motivate people to solve their professional or personal issues.

This is a great book for people wanting to look at their own personal development and we often recommend it when we are mentoring family lawyers. As relevant today as when it was first published in 1989, the seven principles outlined in this book are designed to inspire and motivate people of all ages and occupations to solve their professional or personal problems. Over 25 million copies of this book have been sold worldwide.

It is insightful, well organized, and effectively written. From the opening paragraph to the final appendix, Covey strikes a cord in the reader as he seeks to help them grow, change, and become more effective in human responsibility through what he calls The Seven Habits which are all interconnected.

Change according to the author, must be internal, and each of his habits is based upon the inner transformation of the individual, each one building upon the previous, making them easy to grasp and simple to understand.

Author Stephen Covey provides a simple, principle-based framework to help individuals, from CEOs to parents, to take advantage of the opportunities that change creates.
