This audio program is for you if you have ever thought or said these words:
• “He/she spends money like it grows on trees.”
• “We just don’t have time for each other.”
• “If it weren’t for the children, there wouldn’t be enough in this marriage to keep it afloat.”
• “When am I going to be a priority?”
• “I never feel understood.”
• “I just can’t trust him/her!”
In today’s world, the desire to create a strong marriage and family is not enough. It takes a new mind-set, a new skill-set, and a new tool-set to deal with the challenge. If we are to respond effectively to the changes, our relationships must be grounded in principles of effectiveness.
The principles of the 7 Habits provide a time-tested mind-set and skill-set. Millions of people around the world are using the principles in the 7 Habits to grow stronger.
In this two-CD audio program, Dr. Stephen R. Covey and his wife Sandra—along with his brother Dr. John M.R. Covey and his wife Jane Parrish Covey—offer insights and personal experiences in applying these proven principles to marriage and home.
CD 1 is a live recording of a presentation featuring Dr. Stephen R. Covey and his wife Sandra on the 50 years of marriage.
In CD 2, Dr. John M.R. Covey and his wife Jane introduce the basic principles and practices of the 7 Habits as they apply to marriage and family. John and Jane have taught the 7 Habits all over the world to thousands of people.
About the Author
Dr. Stephen R. Covey is an internationally respected leadership authority, teacher, author, organizational consultant, and co-founder and vice chairman of Franklin Covey Co. He is author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, which Chief Executive magazine has called the most influential business book of the last 100 years. The book has sold nearly 20 million copies, and after 20 years, still holds a place on most best-seller lists. Dr. Covey earned an MBA from Harvard and a doctorate from BYU, where he was a professor of organizational behavior. For more than 40 years, he has taught millions of people — including leaders of nations and corporations — the transforming power of the principles that govern individual and organizational effectiveness. He and his wife live in the Rocky Mountains of Utah.
Sandra Covey, the wife of personal development pioneer Stephen Covey, offers a pleasing contrast to the incisive logic that frames his thinking on so many aspects of human improvement. She's also a smooth storyteller, with a warm and personal voice, and the stories she delivers help make this a memorable production. Recordings of their seminar comments make up the first part of the program, and the second part features Covey's brother and his wife delivering ideas and stories about how Stephen Covey's Seven Habits can make marriage more rewarding. The theme of this installment in Covey's series is how to make better choices in the four aspects of a satisfying marriage--commitment, communication, character, and companionship. This is a reflective reminder of what is possible to achieve in a lifelong romantic partnership. T.W. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine

Steven Covey is the Man
This is a presentation of a 7 habits for highly effective marriage presentation. It's not quite as in depth as you may be looking for. However there is a very good question and answer panel that has Steven, his wife, his brother, and his brother's wife answering questions. This is actually very insightful and a bit comical at times. I would actually give the question and answer close to a 5 star, and the presentation part about a three star. Don't get me wrong I enjoy the presentation, I just wish (like I have with other Steven Covey's books on tape) that they actually put the book on tape or did a version of the book. This is again just a recording of the presentation. I would recommend this to anyone looking to strengthen your marriage. I think the ideas are very practical, true to life, and able to be implemented. I think the application is easier if you have read 7 habits of highly effective people. Good luck to everybody out there. Remember there can be no change without knowledge. This book will give you so knowledge so you can become a better spouse.

I thought this was the audio book, it turned out to be the author and others talking about the information in the book and going through the points. Similar to what you would hear at a seminar.
