"[Thirty] years after it first appeared, the wisdom of The 7
Habits is more relevant than ever. On an individual level
people are burning out, and on a collective level we are burning up
the planet. So Dr. Covey's emphasis on self-renewal and his
understanding that leadership and creativity require us to tap into
our own physical, mental, and spiritual resources are exactly what
we need now." --Arianna Huffington
"Every so often a book comes along that not only alters the lives of readers but leaves an imprint on the culture itself. The 7 Habits is one of those books." --Daniel Pink, author of Drive and When
"No person lasts forever, but books and ideas can endure. Stephen R. Covey's life is done, but his work is not. It continues, right here in this book as alive today as when first written." --Jim Collins
