The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change: 30th Anniversary Edition Ljud-CD – Oavkortad, 19 Maj 2020
"[Thirty] years after it first appeared, the wisdom of The 7 Habits is more relevant than ever. On an individual level people are burning out, and on a collective level we are burning up the planet. So Dr. Covey's emphasis on self-renewal and his understanding that leadership and creativity require us to tap into our own physical, mental, and spiritual resources are exactly what we need now."-- "Arianna Huffington"
"Every so often a book comes along that not only alters the lives of readers but leaves an imprint on the culture itself. The 7 Habits is one of those books."-- "Daniel Pink, New York Times bestselling author"
"No person lasts forever, but books and ideas can endure. Stephen R. Covey's life is done, but his work is not. It continues, right here in this book as alive today as when first written."-- "Jim Collins, New York Times bestselling author"

I would argue that emotional bank accounts don't necessarily work in the logical manner Stephen describes. Divorce records, bad relationships and friendships can show this. We don't always think in our emotional investments relative to our current condition/issues with someone, as our current emotional state will often cloud our judgement or just straight outweigh the possible years of previous investments, particularly with emotionally immature individuals. In some circumstances, emotional bank accounts can be relative, whereby actions don't have comparative value but instead are valued all the same (kind of like the buddist birthday cutaway from Family Guy, which I know is a weird simile).
As for thinking win/win, it is often times just far too time ineffective to try and come up with win/win circumstances for certain situations. For interactions that'll have future consequences, it is necessary to build a good, trusting relationship, but for one time interactions or in other circumstances, trying to get your other party to win will just be manipulated or abused, and sometimes just ineffective, as it'll have no future bearing on any endeavours that are important to your life or to those important to you. In those situations, I think just thinking to win is far better.
Finally, the concept of the young woman/old lady. It's a fun little psychology game that can show ignorance and the defensive nature we have over world views, but what I think that it ignores about worldviews is how useful they are. Two people can perceive the same interaction differently, that is true, but what makes one perspective more valuable and 'right' is whether or not that worldview can be used to recreate or predict future events similar to that perceived or be useful to motivate or explain why something works, and allows for future effective actions to be taken. If you see a lion hunting a gazelle, one person could say that it is because they're hungry, while another could say that the gazelle wronged the lion. Both are interpreting the same act, and can justify it with their description of details within the event, however, only one perspective (the lion being hungry) can predict that this behaviour can happen again in future (not the best analogy, I know, but its the best I could think of). This general principle is a fundamental to self-help: replicability of ideals and success.
The book is magnificent, and is expertly written, with Stephen's analogies and stories being VERY convincing and easily convey the many ideas he puts forward. Its just some of the advice isn't something you should take forward, which is up to you to decide. Don't just read this book and take it as gospel; take the many concepts that work for you and leave those that don't show to be effective or bear fruit.
A modern stoic view infused with empathy and success mindset, that teaches you what the ancients always knew:
Mind your own business, and work hard on yourself before criticizing others.
Have a plan in mind. Prioritize.
Don't waste your time with meaningless stuff.
Look after yourself, mentally and physically.
A true victory is when everybody wins.
