Description

Product Description

Based on a Navy SEAL''s inspiring graduation speech, this #1 New York Times bestseller of powerful life lessons "should be read by every leader in America" (Wall Street Journal).

If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed.

On May 17, 2014, Admiral William H. McRaven addressed the graduating class of the University of Texas at Austin on their Commencement day. Taking inspiration from the university''s slogan, "What starts here changes the world," he shared the ten principles he learned during Navy Seal training that helped him overcome challenges not only in his training and long Naval career, but also throughout his life; and he explained how anyone can use these basic lessons to change themselves-and the world-for the better.

Admiral McRaven''s original speech went viral with over 10 million views. Building on the core tenets laid out in his speech, McRaven now recounts tales from his own life and from those of people he encountered during his military service who dealt with hardship and made tough decisions with determination, compassion, honor, and courage. Told with great humility and optimism, this timeless book provides simple wisdom, practical advice, and words of encouragement that will inspire readers to achieve more, even in life''s darkest moments.
"Powerful." -- USA Today

"Full of captivating personal anecdotes from inside the national security vault." -- Washington Post

"Superb, smart, and succinct." -- Forbes

Review

"Should be read by every leader in America... [MAKE YOUR BED] is a book to inspire your children and grandchildren to become everything that they can. It is a book to discuss with your executive leadership team as a spur to meeting shared goals. Most of all, it is a book that will leave you with tears in your eyes."
Wall Street Journal

"Full of captivating personal anecdotes from inside the national security vault...McRaven''s lessons, like his commencement speech, extend far beyond his bed-making. He devotes the 10-chapter book to lessons about moving beyond failure, standing up to bullies and giving others hope."― Washington Post

"McRaven...has taken the genesis of what he learned during SEAL training and his nearly four decades in Navy Special Operations into a thin, powerful book."― USA Today

"Exquisitely simple...superb, smart, and succinct ideas."
Forbes

Must read for 13 + year olds
Reviewed in the United States on July 5, 2017
As an eighth grade teacher I see children everyday who never take a risk, who don''t know how to work properly on teams, and stay down after an ounce of bad news or criticism. I wish I could buy 150 copies for each student I teach.

There are many "self-help" books on the market that contain solid information. However, General McRaven''s Make Your Bed comes across as refreshingly different from those books by well known self-help gurus like Dr. Phil or Tony Robbins mainly because the anecdotes he uses to illustrate his ten key points are gleaned from his experiences as a Navy SEAL. I read this little book in one sitting and plan to buy copies for my children. In a nutshell, McRaven says that life is tough, but meeting challenges with discipline, determination, a positive attitude and the support of others will most often lead an individual to a meaningful life that will inspire others.

The concepts are solid, but he did a poor job of likening them to life. Pretty useless. If you want a way better book on the subject, read Resilience by Eric Grietens.

This book is an excellent short read, full of great life lessons for anyone. Although the examples are from a military life, it is not a military book. I will gladly recommend this book to all of my kids and fourteen grand kids !

We ordered a dozen + of these to give as gifts to friends. A wonderful book to give as a gift for graduation, new career, retirement - or just as encouragement for anyone. This book is based on the iconic speech Admiral McRaven gave at the University of Texas - Austin Commencement Address in 2014. If you haven''t seen the Youtube video of the speech you need to watch and listen to it. One of the all time best speeches ever given. Do as we did and order a dozen or more and keep them tucked away for those occasions when you need a perfect gift for someone. You won''t be sorry.

So now the good Admiral has expanded each of his 10 points and written them down for us and, to make it better, I''ve got him reading it to me as well. The points are simple, as the best truth is, but it''s an iceberg with much more underneath. Your time could be spent on much worse.

Make Your Bed: Small things that can change your life... and maybe the world is a short book but one that is engaging and packed with good advice. The author gives his ten top tips for overcoming challenges and being the best you that you can be. These self-help type books usually fall into the trap of coming across as preachy and holier than thou or being completely impractical for most people (I''m looking at you The 4-Hour Workweek). This book bucks that trend by being simple, practical and useful for almost everyone. Another downfall of these kinds of books that the author neatly swerves is feeling like they have to make the book a certain length. I''ve read lots of books that could, and should, have been half the length, but the author felt the need to keep adding extraneous fluff to make the book long enough. McRaven has ten pieces of advice, and each one has a couple of short anecdotes to illustrate it and then it is done. It never outstays it''s welcome which makes the advice that much more powerful. So, overall a great book with some excellent advice that is simple but worth repeating. A book that we should give to everyone when they leave school, in my opinion.

There''s a YouTube video where the Admiral gave his speech to the university of Texas graduates. The book mirrors those same life lessons that specifically relate to the testing and lessons learned in Navy SEAL training. All lessons are relevant to anyone from anywhere doing anything in their daily lives. Simple, short and suitable for young teens, male or female and adults alike. Not a self help book, more a common sense book with practical life lessons from the Admirals life experiences.
