McMillan Palgrave
In his first major work since The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Steven R. Covey presents a practical and philosophical guide to solving the problems--large and small, mundane and extraordinary--that confront all families and strong communities. By offering revealing anecdotes about ordinary people as well as helpful suggestions about changing everyday behavior, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families shows how and why to have family meetings, the importance of keeping promises, how to balance individual and family needs, and how to move from dependence to interdependence. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families is an invaluable guidebook to the welfare of families everywhere.

Blackwell North Amer
Sharing insightful, often poignant or humorous experiences from his own life and also from the lives of many families who are striving to live these principles, Covey teaches you how you can become an agent of change in your family; create a family mission statement - a compelling, unifying expression of shared vision and values; make family a priority, even in the midst of a turbulent world; work together effectively to come up with new, third-alternative solutions; and shift your focus from survival (barely making it yourselves) to significance (making a real difference in your family and in the world).
