Habits of Effective People

I read "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" by Stephen R. Covey recently.
Over 15 million copies of this book sold.

Stephen R. Covey is a respected Leadership Authority, Organizational consultant and Author.
He is the author of several acclaimed books like The 7 habits of highly effective people, First things first, principle-centered leadership, The 7 habits of highly effective family.

The seven habits are divided into three parts:

Part one: Private Victory

Habit 1 : Be Proactive

This habit is about principles of personal vision.

Habit 2 : Begin with the end in mind

This habit is about principles of personal Leadership.

Habit 3 : Put first things first

This habit is about principles of personal Management.

Part Two: Public Victory

Habit 4 : Think win/win

This habit is about principles of Interpersonal Leadership.

Habit 5 : Seek first to understand, then to be understood

This habit is about principles of Empathetic Communication.

Habit 6 : Synergize

This habit is about Creative Cooperation.

Part Three: Renewal

Habit 7 : Sharpen the Saw

This habit is about principles of Balanced Self-Renewal.

This book is very detailed, lot of research went into it.But it looks like a PH.D Thesis,so dry to read.Personal Improvement book should be easy to read and follow,this is my personal opinion.
