Stephen R. Covey, a former Brigham Young University business professor who blended personal self-help and management theory in a massive bestseller, "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People," died Monday at a hospital in Idaho Falls, Idaho.

"RIP Stephen R. Covey. " The self-help guru died Monday at the age of 79, and reaction to his passing went almost exactly as the self-help guru might have scripted it. Instead of mourning his death, fans and followers inspired by Covey used social media platforms to celebrate his life. Covey's most famous book, "The 7 Habits of Highly Effectively People," was published in 1989 and sold more than 20 million copies. The book started out, on the face of it, as a management tome, but for many it held the key to living a life rich with personal success as well as professional achievement.
