  That book, when I read it, felt like every page should have a Captain Obvious caption on it. After interacting with people, I realize how many people need it. As the saying goes, common sense is not that common.

and cheap, too: less than 30 cents/habit

Which is much cheaper than many habits.

  It is, in schools that that are "Leader In Me" schools. The habits are broken down to kid friendly jargon and examples.

I'd have to think that two of the seven habits of highly effective people would include these:

  • Stop downloading so danged many free Kindle books
  • Stop spending so darned much time on FatWallet

In grad school I had to read this book and give a presentation. We boiled it down to about 15 minutes worth of common sense stuff. It's so thin. Then again, maybe I should re-read it now that I'm older and less wise. =)

Now Back to 9.99
