Publisher's Summary

World-renowned expert in leadership and organization, Dr. Stephen R. Covey, presents an in-depth look at Habit 1 of The 7 Habits, Be Proactive. Filled with never-before-released material from Dr. Covey, this audio includes new and insightful examples in the author's trademark engaging speaking and teaching style.

You Can Take Control: Habit 1 takes head-on the "victim mentality" that paralyzes and hampers so many people. Habit 1 says, "You are not a product of your circumstances; you can choose your response to every situation you face."
More Than an Audiobook: This is not a reading of the Habit 1 chapter from The 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People. Instead, this content is drawn from a variety of recordings of Dr. Covey teaching this important principle. The result is an intimate and thorough exploration of what it means to "Be Proactive", including relevant, current examples to illustrate the points.
From the #1 Best-Selling Business Book of All Time: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People has sold over 15 million copies.

Pretty much a rehash

Most of the content is a nearly verbatim rehash of parts of this chapter in the book. Some of the material near the end doesn't sound as familiar, and is very good and very useful. This is useful for those who would like to hear the basic ideas of this chapter and be able to review them without having to 'rewind' to that chapter in the book. Otherwise, just buy the unabridged version of the audiobook!
