Why we recommend it: As one of the leading management and leadership writers of all time, Covey’s books are outstanding and this book is one of his best and most popular. We regard it as a ‘must read’ and while written over 25 years ago, it is more relevant than ever. The title says it all and if you only buy one of Covey’s books, this would be the one we recommend. It will not only be useful in your professional life, but also in your personal life too. Just a great book, everyone should read (at least once).
