About The Book

A “beautiful, inspiring, and important” (Professor Muhammad Yunus, Nobel Prize Laureate) final book from the legendary leadership expert, Stephen R. Covey, internationally bestselling author of the classic The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

Stephen R. Covey spent his long and storied career inspiring millions of individuals to make their lives more effective, compassionate, and meaningful. Near the end of his life, Covey felt there was a final component to his work: How do you live your best life no matter your age?

Live Life in Crescendo is Covey’s directive to live life in crescendo, meaning to continually grow in contribution, learning, and influence. In the same way that music builds on previous notes but leaves us anticipating the next note, a life builds on the past but unfolds in the future. The Crescendo Mentality urges you to use whatever you have—your time, talents, skills, resources, gifts, passion, money, influence—to enrich the lives of people around you, including your family, neighborhood, community, and the world.

Cowritten with his daughter, Cynthia Covey Haller, and published posthumously, Live Life in Crescendo is a life-changing and life-affirming book that will “inspire you to dream bigger and bolder” (Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Think Again) and befits the generosity and wisdom of the late Stephen R. Covey.
