The latest installment of this popular personal development series features real-life examples of Covey's "seven habits." He offers no new theoretical material here but has instead collected testimonials of his "universal, timeless and self-evident" principles in action. Each brief testimonial, ably narrated by either Bill Kimball or Carrie Gordon Lowery, is coupled with the author's commentary on how the individual successfully employs the seven habits to overcome a problem. The severity of problems discussed range from coping with a parent's terminal illness to establishing a dialog with a young child. Covey's popularity will likely create high demand for his latest work, and libraries may also experience a renewed interest in his earlier books. Strongly recommended for all self-help collections.--Beth Farrell, Portage Cty. Dist. Lib., Garrettsville, OH Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
