Dr. Stephen Covey.

Dr. Stephen Covey, author of "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People," died in 2012. He was 79. Two years after his death, his publishers released the 25th anniversary edition of "7 Habits," with the forward by Jim Collins, author of "Good to Great" and co-author of "Great by Choice."

"No person lasts forever," Collins wrote, "but books and ideas can endure. When you engage with these pages, you will be engaging with Stephen Covey at the peak of his powers.... His life is done, but his work is not. It continues, right here in this book, as alive today as when first written. The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People is twenty-five years young, off to a very strong start indeed."

Prior to his death, Covey wrote: "The world has changed dramatically since The 7 Habits book was first published 25 years ago. Life is more complex, more stressful, and even more demanding. Our problems and pain are universal and increasing and we face challenges and problems in our lives, our families and our organizations unimagined even one and two decades ago. These challenges are not only of a new order of magnitude, they are all-together different in kind. The greater the change and more difficult our challenges, the more relevant the 7 Habits become. The solutions to our problems are and always will be based upon universal, timeless, self-evident principles common to every enduring, prospering society throughout history."
