Review: Living the 7 Habits: The Courage to Change

User Review  - Vonia - Goodreads

I really was not that in love with the first Covey title... So not sure why I tried again... But, as it is, he has some insightful information, definitely might be of assistance at some point, but overall overhyped. Read full review
