“There are short, quick truths and long-enduring ones,” said a philosopher whose name – but not whose thought – has been forgotten.

“The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change” is itself a kind of enduring “truth” as its longevity attests. This book has lasting value because it speaks of lasting things. Where many so-called self-help books deal with only the superficial personality traits, trappings and quick fixes of business success, Stephen Covey’s book deals with character, principles and universal laws, not only as they apply to business, but as they apply to – and integrate with -personal fulfillment, happiness, and relationships in all areas of life.

This book “has transformed the lives of presidents and CEOs, educators and parents – in short, millions of people of all ages and occupations across the world. This special edition of Stephen Covey’s cherished classic commemorates his timeless wisdom, and encourages us to live a life of great and enduring purpose.”

No wonder this perennial New York Times Bestseller was named the #1 Most Influential Business Book of the twentieth century.
