Life Changing. This book takes principles most of us know at some level and puts them into practical habits we can develop to change our lives and the lives of those in our circle of influence.

Not the real book!. Not the real book!

Viewing Format. Is the format suppose to be two pages on the screen and are they suppose to be viewed by swiping them as if it’s a picture? This is how it’s formatted on my iPhone (software11.4.1)

A classic. This book still resonates with me today! Best thing I read in high school.

Great book, horrible format. The format is very difficult to read. I wish I could return and get a better format. I wish there was a way to return items in this format.

Great Read!. Absolutely amazing book! The information is life changing!

Impossible to read on iBooks. Terrible formatting.. Terrible formatting to read. I’d like a refund

Very very horrible edition!! Buyer beware!!!!!. No doubt the 7 habits book is a classic. I have read the original 7 habits book and loved it so much that I thought it would be nice to own the digital edition too. This review is about this horrible 25th anniversary digital iBook edition. I can't even find words to fully express how annoyed I am. I wish I could get my money back. The videos embedded in the book are of very poor quality. But more importantly the tables and diagrams in the book are incomplete. It makes no sense. This edition does not even have the index of tables referenced by Dr. Covey in various chapters in the book. This is a rip off. Please let me know how I can get my money back. I'm not impressed. From now onwards, kindle will be my go-to ebook application. Reader please beware of this edition.

Nice eBook. The infographics and video enhanced the reading experience. Great book for anyone who needs motivation to get things started in their lives.

I am sorry I bought this digital version of this book.. This is not the book. This is truncated copy. Difficult to read and use. buyer beware.

Loved the book. I don’t know why people hate this book it’s life changing and it helped me

Don’t buy this version. It’s a very bad pirate copy.

Can’t even open. Can’t open book on iPhone. Invalid format?

Not as advertised. Not sure what is up with this copy but stay away. It does not display like other iBooks. It’s like a pdf someone stole off of the internet and you have to pinch and zoom. Waste of eight bucks!

Amazing book. Format is horrible. Could hav

Great Book!. Great Book and read! Life changing!! 🙏🏽📖🙌🏼💯

Terrible after latest update. After the most recent update you can only read in two page format on iPad mini, I prefer to read in one. Can't change font at all.

Great Book..However. Please for the love of all things Holy FIX THE DARN LAYOUT!! I have this book on Google Books but I was trying to get all my books on Apple but I saw the way the pages were and did an immediate NOPE.. Why this isn’t like the other books where it’s page by page I don’t know. You have to zoom in to read the page then zoom out and go to the next page and repeat the process. Disappointed Apple is asking people to pay for a book that isn’t even done properly. Great book and highly recommended but find another place to get it. APPLE PLEASE FIX!!!

Don’t BUY. Font isn’t readable is so same . Two pages on one , doesn’t work on IPad either

Same ol’ Stuff. But definitely a worthwhile read. Love Covey!

This edition is garbage. “Made for iBooks” but it’s the worst layout I have ever seen in a book. What book forces you read in landscape??

HORRIBLE VERSION. Please restore the version you had before! This is terrible!!! Restore it back to epub and not this PDF looking version!!!!

Terrible after last update. This book was updated recently and the format is now terrible. It's hard to read. Difficult to navigate and my many many notes and highlights are gone. Content is fantastic I want to read it again but I can't after the last update. Please fix it.

Do not buy. Agree, this is not the original. This is not the edition you are looking for.

Must Read!. Stephen Covey really taught me some important lessons about life and my relationships with other people. I cannot think of anyone I know that this book couldn't help in their everyday life. No matter where you are from, or where you are going, it is a MUST read!!!

Nicely done.. Like having this on my iPhone. Video at beginning of each chapter a great feature.

Great book marred by terrible e-book edition. I agree with the reviews written by ChuckE and Jprennie: One of the best books ever written is presented in about the worst possible way. Some graphics are missing, the rest are hard to read. I wondered why everything about this book moved so slowly until I saw on my MacBook that this e-edition is 180 MB! Are you kidding me? Should be no more than 10 MB. Something is seriously wrong with this edition. Please fix it.

NOT THE ORIGINAL BOOK. I was disapointed to have purchased this version - it’s not the original version. The infographics are distracting and silly, and not effective.

Poor graphics. I like the idea of an interactive version of this book, and it's good to have the videos. However, graphics are very small and blurry, and there is no capability to click and enlarge them. Many of the graphics are cut off midway. Please create and updated version with better graphics!

5 Stars for content and layout. I almost didn’t buy this version because of some reviews about the format. Perhaps there is some room for user error, but when I realized I could zoom to each column, highlight sections and turn them into flash cards, and watch videos all within this book - I knew I had to write a review. You’ll love this layout on an iOS device. The content is of course phenomenal. I read this book at the start of my career. 9 years in, I’m realizing what a profound impact these principles and Covey’s stories have had on me. Even small paragraph’s contain life-changing nuggets. So good.

DO NOT BUY! Not the real book. This is NOT the real book! DO NOT BUY! I want a refund

Practical, Insightful, Easy to understand. This book is a wealth of information. It is clearly written in an easy-to-understand and easy-to-follow manner, yet so deep and insightful. I learned so much about myself and I gleaned many practical things to implement in my personal life and in the organization that I am a part of. The author talks about how to be efficient with things, and effective with people. He creates a distinction and boils down the problems in personal life, family, churches, and businesses to lack of concrete value systems and a need for paradigm shifts. He then explains the 7 habits necessary to make those necessary changes. This book and it's timeless message should be read and re-read. I plan to go back to it often and I am currently trying to implement the things that I have learned. Excellent read!

Junk. So small you can’t read it on iOS. Junk

Critical for Everyone’s life!. This book has radically changed me! I don’t know how to thank the author😭

URGENT!!!. Please return the old version

Easy to understand. Covey counts on people having the knowledge on how to apply his habits, but overall the advice is sound. Despite sounding a bit like a cult leader at times (I actually took the class that accompanies this book) he genuinely believes in his theories. Translating the habits into daily activity takes effort, but once done, positive change will happen. The writing is easy to understand and is well organized, and each chapter takes the time to explain its habit, which makes the book an easy read.

Great eBook that contains very nice videos and infographics!. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is a classic and one of the best business/management books written ever. The book contains paradigms and principles that will help you to success in your personal and professional life. I specially liked very much the chapters Habit 1: Be Proactive and Habit 4: Think Win/Win. This ebook contains videos and nice graphics so this is the most complete version. Must Read!

This version needs FIXED!. Great book, no question. Unfortunately the original text pictures in my version are cut off on the corners and do not show up correctly, which causes some content to be unviewable! Also, where is the TIME MANAGEMENT matrix?! It is supposed to be in Habit 3. The text to discuss Qudrant II is there, but the visual is no where to be found! HELP!

Not the version I wanted. This was a waste of time and money.

Life changing book. This book really changed my way of thinking and my relationship with people it’s really an awesome book I recommend it for everyone 🔥🔥

Ruined by the latest update. I thought the book was good in the digital edition but the update that I added 3/10/17 that was available for a couple of months thoroughly changed the book and made it unreadable. I can't figure out how to view the text and it is displayed totally differently. Horrible!!!

Last update. I can't enlarge font size in the last update. Please resolve it. Thanks

Not a good format for boom store. This is a great book, but terrible unusable format for iBooks. Steer clear. Sorry I purchased this version.

Overdesigned, hard to read, tan background, hard to read and navigate. Terrible!. Overdesigned and hard to read: the tan background decreases contrast while you're reading and the font sizes differ so greatly from most e books in my iBooks that I had to change my system wide settings just to read this one. The book is harder to navigate than other e books as well. I bought the interactive version first. It's MUCH WORSE than this one. There's NOT EVEN PORTRAIT MODE while reading it, It pushes out two pages at a time as if you only read in landscape mode! When reading a book, I'll decide how I want read it! Thank you very much. Checking out this one was almost as bad as the interactive version. The page breaks for chapters don't even show up or have decent spacing between the end of one section and the beginning of a new chapter! VERY BAD! I want a BOOK. Black letters on a white background and the standard navigation. What's so hard to understand about that? Can't you also sell just a plain white wrapper version of this American Classic, Apple? Some of us just want the same version of the book we have on the shelf for portable reading and reference and working through it one chapter at a time! Only Kindle (which I normally avoid, preferring the Apple ecosystem) has a PLAIN black and white version of the book, the 25th edition. Is $6.99 but takes some tricks to order it and not have it upgrade you to this "interactive" overdesigned verion. I prefer to have all my books in iBooks, but since Apple doesn't carry a simple version of the book, I was forced into getting it from Amazon. SMH! Apple, fix this! Get the 25th edition so people have a choice!! I will be asking for my money back for this horrible version!!!

Hard to read. This book is not the original

I don't like the interactive edition. I can't stand this interactive edition I wish they just had a regular book I have seriously wasted 30 min of my life trying to work this . Getting the Kindle edition and wish I could get my money back .

Not actually an eBook - zero stars. Turns out this is effectively just a PDF, not an properly formatted eBook. This means the text size, background color, and scroll direction can't be changed, making it very difficult to read. I'm disappointed that this subpar user experience was even permitted in the store in the first place.

DO NOT BUY. It’s not the real book. Wasted my money.

Good book but wordy. I have started to read a lot of leadership books and of course this is one of the most well known. It's a good book however it is kind of wordy which I think makes the book much longer than it needs to be. Surprisingly I found how I could integrate these habits not just in leadership, but my personal life as well. "Interactive" may be a stretch because the only difference than any other iBook is that there are about 3 or so short video segments scattered throughout the book. It is nice to see Stephen talking about some of the principles in the book even if you can tell the video was recorded years ago. Quite honestly the same videos, or ones talking similar things, are most likely on YouTube. P.s. I'm subtracting one additional star from this version because some of the charts do not show up properly on the iPhone or iPad. Matter of fact I had to google the time management chart because I could not figure out what it was supposed to look like. It is nice that all the charts are in color at least.

iBooks edition is so laggy I can't even read it. I have heard excellent things about this book, but unfortunately the iBooks interactive edition is so delayed I can't even open it. Don't waste your time.

Useful and interesting. This book is well written and gives good examples. It's a keeper!

Niche. The introduction is too long! My goodness. Put me off the actual 7 habits. The language is probably too superior for general public. Quite hard to have momentum when you have to re-read almost every sentence to understand what message is being relayed. Definitely a waste of money in my opinion.

If I could score 0 I would. The format of this book is terrible £6.99 or whatever I paid W A S T E D do not buy this book. I Books / Apple / Whoever runs/controls this service please remove at your earliest convienience.

A PDF read. Shocking how bad the format of this book is. I think I will buy the actual book version to read.

Unusable. I can't comment on the content of the book, as this iBooks edition is unusable. It appears to be a double-paged PDF, and it displays in landscape when your iPad is in portrait mode. You can't zoom, change font, change theme, nor change font-size. As another reviewer has noted, it's also incredibly laggy. Useless.

Terrible formatting! Do not buy. Terrible format

The Best book I have Ever read. You must read and get as many of your friends and colleagues to read this life inspiring book. It will Change your life and for or the a Better

Sample runs out before the book starts. There are so many ‘Praises’ for the book at the start, that the sample doesn’t get to the actual content.

Better alternatives. There are far better and easier to understand books of a similar nature than this. Gave up third of the way through as the way it’s written just makes you drift off. Amazed it sold so many.

Disappointed. Poorly presented

Unreadable on an iPhone.. All the pages just scroll as small pictures across the bottom of the screen. If you tap them they don't enlarge

One of the best books for self improvement.. The concepts taught in this book are applicable to all aspects of life. I highly recommend this book.

Disappointed. Feel totally ripped off. Just so hard to read this format on my phone. Wish I could have a refund.

JEWEL!. These habits are embedded in us... what this book does is help us explore our inner values. Refining them, helping us envision that synergy and unleashing the passion for growth!!

Can’t read on iPhone. Can’t read on iPhone .

👉 Are you looking for an Adsense alternative advertising platform?

Adsterra is the most preferred ad network for those looking for an alternative to AdSense. Adsterra is the ideal choice for new sites with low daily traffic. In order to advertise on the site in Adsterra, like other ad networks, a certain traffic limit, domain age, etc. is required. There are no strict rules. Sign up!

Crappy Format. The book itself is good, the format is terrible. Very difficult to navigate. I’m surprised this terrible quality exists in Apple Books.

Don't buy this version. Great book, but there are problems with this version on iBooks. It does not include some graphics eg. The 4 Quadrants, has many random formatting errors, and is missing the Appendices, which the book references.

The 7 Habits. This book shows up small on my phone screen which makes it difficult to read

Not a good ibook. You cannot adjust the font setting and the pages don’t scroll as they should. Very disappointed.

Useless time spending. The author explains a type of a specific person and if you’re not this type, the book doesn’t fit you at all. First 100 pages are about how this book will help you, some pretty useless information like an advertisement. The book explains how some habits are useful, but ok, it’s so obvious and everyone knows about that without any books. If other psychological and business books give some instructions and advices how to implement these habits, how to archive the results, this book doesn’t. There is a habit, it’s cool, just do it! How? Suit yourself.

Not a Real Sample!. The entire sample to try is only testimonials!

I wanted the Audiobook. After looking at the formatting of this book, I did not enjoy it. I would have preferred to get the audiobook, it is not good. I ended up getting the actual physical copy of the book instead. I could not even get through the first few pages. I would appreciate a refund for this purchase.
