By Stephen R. Covey

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

This is one of the first non-fiction books I read. It’s a must as it lays out the foundation for effectiveness. Like Office of Cards, this book focuses first on self-awareness and self-improvement, then on how a better self can more effectively interact with others. Curiously, the second book by Covey (The Eighth Habit) is precisely why I wrote this book: find your voice and inspire others to find theirs.
