New Delhi, July 17 (IANS) Popular American self-help author Stephen R. Covey, whose 1989 book 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People' shot him to international fame, died early Monday in Idado from complications arising from a bicycle accident in April. He was 79.

Described as 'one of business world's most creative thinkers' from the US media, Covey was recognised as one of Time magazine's 25 most influential Americans.

He dedicated his life to demonstrating 'how every person can truly

control their destiny with guidance'. As an internationally respected leadership authority, family expert, teacher, organisation consultant and author, his counselling has given insight to millions.

An estimate on his website says Covey sold 20 million copies of the

'The 7 Habits...' in 38 languages. It was named the most influential business book of the 20th century.

He had authored four titles, 'First Things First', 'Principle-Centered Leadership', 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families' and 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People'. His latest book, 'The 8th Habit' has sold nearly 400,000 copies.

Covey was honoured with the International Man of Peace Award and

National Fatherhood Award. He was the father of nine and the

grandfather of 44.

'The 7 Habits...' , has been a beat-seller because it ignores trends and pop psychology for proven principles of fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity.
