From “paradigm shift,” to “think Win/Win,” to (ugh) “synergy,” there is no empty self-help cliché left unturned. I should have stopped reading the first time I saw the word “synergy.” (I get countless “business proposals” in my email every day and, if I bother to skim any of them at all, I delete them as soon as the word “synergy” makes an appearance.) No word represents the trite emptiness of this book better than “synergy” – except maybe the verb form of the word: “synergize,” or the adjective “synergistic,” or the adverb “synergistically.” But they are all here. (The author also repeatedly refers to “things that are learned” as “learnings.”)
The book doesn’t even try to live up to its title. There is no argument at all to support the idea that these are seven actual habits that real people have used anywhere in the world to achieve real success. In fact, these seven so-called habits appear to be nothing more than seven things that the author thinks are really good ideas, with weird examples of how they helped him deal with his kid being bad at baseball and also helped his kid learn the value of cleaning up the yard. The book’s title doesn’t match the book itself, but then no one would spend their money on a book called, “The Seven Things Some Random Guy Thinks are Really Nifty-Keen.”
Here’s some useful self-help/time management advice for you: do not waste your precious time with this book. There are dozens and dozens, if not hundreds, of better self-help books out there. Synergize your win/win paradigm shifts with some of those.

Wrong! It appears to be (on the surface) a book on efficiency (which is what i read it for). I was desperately looking for short term, rapid solutions to my problems.
This book made me trawl through 400 pages of disjointed, badly written pseudo-science, philosophy & religion. Far from meeting my needs... it was positively misleading. It did not do, what it said on the cover. It ought to be reported to trading standards, for false advertising.
It should not be recommended to young people, who require 'substance', and help, at trying times in their lives.
The book, is a false beacon... and a waste of time. It may, or may not be well-intended... But for me, Covey is a false prophet, making money off naieve young people's problems & anxieties.
It could've been summarised in 10 pages... Am not impressed... and am actually bitterly disappointed.
This book, however; even if I needed to 'endure' an unconvincing start, was revolutionary in helping me rewrite my life, help find purpose and deal with my mental health issues also.
I would summerise this book as: ''applied, logical wisdom'.
To be frank, I was not blown away by this book. Yes, there are tidbits of wisdom, but they are scattered sparingly in a seamless array of personal anecdotes, mixed with lengthy phrases in no way aiding what was originally a bald point.
I recovered from the book two very important points which could bring value to most intellectuals: a potential new time-management schedule built on a weekly framework which I will definitely try! The second stresses the essence of self-improvement through continuous reading to live life in crescendo as Mr. Covey so magnificently put it.
I did find the 7 habits to be applicable and relatable. I saw my own values and principles in most of them. Maybe I just did not enjoy the dry writing style and the over-usage of anecdotes. I was maybe hoping for more deep-diving in philosophical which ironically begins to appear at the end of the book in the Final Interview with the author. Overall, I give it 3 stars.
After i received it today, found it is a duplicate.
1) Book paper layout is Bad.
2) Print quality is Bad, it is not normal to read.
3) Every page the darkness of the Printing is different (some page, it is like print done on Old printer cartridge, very light. Some pages, it is too dark.
When i checked the price of this produce after i received my shipment, it is showing 160 INR today.
The one which are sold in the Traffic Signal for 100 INR are better than this product.
Please do not buy this product.
