About the Author:
Stephen R Covey, the author of the book, is known to hold an MBA from the Harvard University. In his previous years of schooling, Covey also has studied Religious Education and Business Administration. It was in his doctoral thesis that Covey came across a contrast in the literature regarding self-help. His observations marked that the books post 1920’s focused highly on personality traits while the ones before that focused on character development. That is when the author put forth his belief about how a balance between the two is more essential than the two in isolation.
