Book Review of Everyday Greatness

The book, Everyday Greatness is a collection of inspirational stories which were originally published in Readers Digest. Each story is followed by insights and ocmmentary from Stephen Covey.

Each of the seven chapters is finished by a series of quotes relating to that area. The seven sections include Searching for Meaning, Taking Charge, Starting Within, Creating the Dream, Teaming with Others, Overcoming Adversity and Blending the Pieces.

It may be intimidating once you see the size of the book of over 400 pages but once you start reading each section, it is difficult to put it down.

I highly recommend reading Everyday Greatness. Since the book consists of a series of short stories it is a great book to read whenevery you have a few minutes to spare. Each story is separate so you don't have to read it in a short amount of time so you remember what's going on like in most books where the whole book is one story.

The stories included have been written by a number of different people from various professions and walks of life. Some of the authors are Walt Disney, Ed McMahon and Maya Angelou.
