In any conflict, the First Alternative is my way, and the Second Alternative is your way. The fight always boils down to a question of whose way is better. This book presents a new and practical, but incredibly effective and eye-opening, way to reach resolution through using the 'Third Alternative'. The Third Alternative moves beyondyour way or my way to a higher and better way - one that allows both parties to emerge from debate or even heated conflict in a far

better place than either had envisioned. With the Third Alternative, nobody has to give up anything, and everyone wins.

To a world of escalating strife and contention, Third Alternative thinkers like those Covey profiles in this innovativeand practical book, bring creative solutions, peace and healing. Through key examples and stories from his work as aconsultant, Covey will demonstrate that Third Alternative thinking is the supreme opportunity of our times. Readers will learn how to create new and better results instead of escalating conflict, as well as how to build strong relationships with diverse individuals based on an attitude of winning together.

The Third Alternative represents a departure from material on conflict resolution, negotiation and mediation; the book represents a new way of thinking that will be embraced not only by the many fans that have flocked to Covey's prior books, but also by anyone who is seeking resolution in their professional or personal lives.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"In "The 3rd Alternative", Dr. Covey inspires us to think differently about solving problems than we ever have before. We must set aside our differences, including our boundaries, languages, economics, politics and cultures and work hand in hand together to create solutions which are greater than the problems we now face."

--Muhammad Yunus, Nobel Peace Prize winner 2006


"Once again, Stephen Covey has nailed it. In this latest book, he offers meaningful advice for navigating life's toughest challenges. It's not about 'my way, ' or 'your way, ' but seeking out 'our way.'"

--J.W. Marriott, Jr., Chairman & CEO of Marriott International, Inc.


"In this book, Covey reaches out way beyond his familiar domain, to the Universe, and has come up with a social vaccine capable of addressing if not resolving the existential agonies and angst that we all face, as individuals and to the organizations and societies that we live and work in. In this Olympiad vault, Covey has written his most ambitious and hopeful book, in my own view, a masterpiece to benefit all of us doing our best to live in peace and justice in this messy world."

--Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor of Management, University of Southern California and author of the memoir, "Still Surprised"


"In "The 3rd Alternative", Stephen Covey urges us to chart a course beyond the suboptimal solutions to all our crises - beyond left and right, and beyond the many false choices in front of us. "The 3rd Alternative" is a wise and welcome echo of Einstein's warning that the problems we're facing today cannot be solved by the same level of thinking that created them."

--Arianna Huffington, president and editor-in-chief of the AOL Huffington Post Media Group


"Even in our conflicted times, now and again we catch a glimpse of the better thing. Dr. Covey shows us how to seek that better thing and transcend our deepest disputes."

--Archbishop Desmond Tutu


"A most compelling approach for addressing the most challenging issues of the day. It is an inarguable formula for success in the corporate world and beyond."

--Douglas R. Conant, retired CEO, Campbell Soup Company, and "New York Times" bestselling author


"Dr. Covey has done it again. "The 3rd Alternative" is not only powerful reading--it answers some of life's most challenging questions. A must-read for all future leaders."

--Jon M. Huntsman, Sr.
