Review – The Wisdom and Teachings of Stephen R Covey
The Wisdom and Teachings of Stephen R Covey is a really interesting and inspirational collection of this very wise man’s most memorable and important teachings, drawn from a number of bestselling books he has written over the years.
There are lots of short statements and even sentences in the book along with some very short examples which really make you think about how you interact with other people.
It’s quite a quick read that you can dip in and out of and keep coming back to. I think this is one of those books that is going to remain close to my side to keep referring to.
This man has left an incredible legacy and throughout the book encourages others to do exactly that.
