About the author

Biography of Covey, Stephen R.

Stephen R. Covey was born on October 24, 1932, in Salt Lake City, Utah. He received a degree in business administration from the University of Utah, an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School, and a D.R.E. from Brigham Young University. He was a teacher and administrator at Brigham Young University. In 1983, he founded the Covey Leadership Center, a training and consulting concern. He wrote numerous books on leadership, personal and organizational effectiveness, and family and interpersonal relationships.

His best known book, The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People: Restoring the Character Ethic, first published in 1989. His other books include Principle Centered Leadership; First Things First: To Live, to Love, to Learn, and to Leave a Legacy; Daily Reflections for Highly Effective People; Seven Habits of Highly Effective Families; The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness; and The 3rd Alternative. He received the Thomas More College Medallion and the Utah Symphony Fiftieth Anniversary Award in 1990, and the McFeely Award of the International Management Council for contributions and service in 1991. He died from injuries sustained in a bicycle accident on July 16, 2012 at the age of 79.

Review by Library Journal (2004-10-01)

Covey emphasizes that this book isn't merely an afterthought to The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People (1989); instead, it adds a new dimension to the original program. The eighth habit comprises finding your "voice"-your unique personal significance-and inspiring others to find theirs. Crucial to this is shifting to a "whole-person paradigm" in which one's body, mind, heart, and spirit are all engaged. Covey predicts that society will transition from property-based industrialism to a "Knowledge Worker Age" that incubates and capitalizes on this whole-person paradigm.

Meaty, readable, and insightful, the text contains FAQ sections regarding real-life application of the theories and contains diagrams that help ground readers. Though conceived for individuals, Covey's book will be of tremendous importance to organizations and businesses. The accompanying DVD (not seen) poses replacement concerns, but multiple copies are still essential for most libraries and all self-help collections.

Rated 1 out of 5★ by Don't order this if you are expecting a normal size book. I ordered it thinking it was, and it is the size of a silver dollar and can fit in the palm of our hand. Very angry! 08/16/2013
