Comments about The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People : Powerful Lessons in Personal Change:
I have steered away from the genre of books I would call "self help" but I truly wish I had read this book in my twenties. Full of wisdom and insight about how to live life with integrity. It addresses many of the ills of our culture that plays the blame game, it is all about what happens "out there" beyond our control. Steve Covey teaches how to take control of who we are and what we do. When we understand that change happens from within we can look at the world in a new way and take responsibility for our actions. This book is a great gift for any young person looking for a road map out of which to live authentically. I am loving the lessons Steve teaches in my fifties!
