"Sean trò chuyện với các bạn trẻ bằng một giọng văn vừa thú vị, vừa kích thích khả năng tư duy sáng tạo của họ. Thông điệp của ông gợi mở những con đường đi đến thành công. Tôi xin trân trọng giới thiệu cuốn sách này tới mọi người, đến tất cả những ai đang ấp ủ một ước mơ."

(John Gay)

"Những giá trị và nguyên tắc sống mà Sean đưa ra trong cuốn sách này rất cần thiết cho sự trưởng thành và trải nghiệm của giới trẻ ngày nay. Bạn càng sớm xây dựng những ý tưởng trong cuốn sách này sẽ giúp bạn làm điều đó."

(Mick Shannon - Giám đốc điều hành Children's Miracle Network)

"Bảy thói quen của bạn trẻ thành đạt" chứa đựng những chỉ dẫn rất thực tế và hữu ích cho bất kỳ ai, không chỉ với các bạn trẻ. Đó là đề ra những mục tiêu, ghi tạc vào trí nhớ của bạn đồng thời tập trung, phát triển khả năng chịu đựng để vượt qua những chặng đường khó khăn phía trước. Nếu làm như thế, bạn sẽ đạt được bất cứ mục tiêu nào".

This book provides great practical productivity tips but unfortunately gives horrendously relativistic, try-out-every-coworker's-religion, postmodern spiritual advice as well. ( )

Awesome book. I got it thinking it was for adults to help them know how to parent teens, but it is actually written for teens. I want to have Alex read it. Even though it is probably written for kids a little older than her, most of it could apply now. ( )

Great book for teens, but can also for adults. My students loved learning about this book and what it had to offer them. ( )

Once upon a time, Stephen Covey wrote a book called “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” and sold about a bajillion copies. Then his son, Sean Covey, decided to take a page out of his father’s book and write a sequel for teens called, “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens.” Written in a go-go-go cheerleader’s voice, chock full of graphics, cartoons, and personal anecdotes, this book will appeal to some teens, but more likely, it will appeal to their parents.

In this self-help book, Covey outlines the seven habits that teens should develop to become centered and successful. He illustrates how to cultivate these habits through stories from his own life, other teens, and successful people. While the anecdotes are useful and interesting, the interstitial explanation of how to actually develop these habits and practices might strike teens as a little hokey. But perhaps they will be drawn in by continuing to read even while rolling their eyes. I know that as I read it, I found myself mentally checking off all Covey’s tips and tricks and thinking about how I could follow this books advice the next time I had a difficult choice to make. So perhaps this sneak attack will work on teens as well.

Honestly, even if the writing is a little too eager, this is a great book for teachers, librarians and counselors to read because it will give them a framework for talking about difficult topics with students (although I’m sure counselors in particular have already received that training, so maybe they don’t need to as much). There are also worksheets throughout the book for the reader to fill out; not practical for a library book of course, but good for personal copies. Basically, I would recommend this book if a student asked me for something, but it would feel presumptuous to present to a student unsolicited.

For grades 8 and up. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0684856093, Paperback)

Based on his father's bestselling The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Sean Covey applies the same principles to teens, using a vivacious, entertaining style. To keep it fun, Covey writes, he "stuffed it full of cartoons, clever ideas, great quotes, and incredible stories about real teens from all over the world... along with a few other surprises." Did he ever! Flip open to any page and become instantly absorbed in real-life stories of teens who have overcome obstacles to succeed, and step-by-step guides to shifting paradigms, building equity in "relationship bank accounts," creating action plans, and much more.

As a self-acknowledged guinea pig for many of his dad's theories, Sean Covey is a living example of someone who has taken each of the seven habits to heart: be proactive; begin with the end in mind; put first things first; think win-win; seek first to understand, then to be understood; synergize; and sharpen the saw. He includes a comical section titled "The 7 Habits of Highly Defective Teens," which includes some, shall we say, counterproductive practices: put first things last; don't cooperate; seek first to talk, then pretend to listen; wear yourself out... Covey's humorous and up-front style is just light enough to be acceptable to wary teenagers, and down-and-dirty enough to really make a difference. (Ages 13 and older) --Emilie Coulter
