Make Your Bed Book Summary


#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

"Should be read by every leader in America...a book to inspire your children and grandchildren to become everything that they can." --Wall Street Journal

BASED ON THE INCREDIBLE GRADUATION SPEECH WITH OVER 10 MILLION VIEWS ON YOUTUBE

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.

  • Ringing the bell

    I like this book! It's inspiring, and I wouldn't hesitate to pass this along to my kids and grandkids. After reading the book though I wonder about those guys who rang the bell, those who quit. I think most of us mortals would do well to get half way through the rigorous SEAL training. My hat off to those who tried, but failed. I bet you kept trying and found something you were good at, that was fulfilling, and quite possibly inspiring.

    What an inspiration. This book clearly shares the personal qualifications that men and women in our armed forces possess and why we as Americans are so fortunate to have these individuals protecting us and our country. Every high school senior and college freshman should have this book as required reading.

    When I started reading this book at 645 am, I found myself finishing the read at 758 pm. Me being a Marine Military Brat, these words sound familiar from my father's advice. If anything these ten advices is what I'm going to share with my students whom live in the inner city of Houston, Texas.
  • A good book for those entering the workforce

    Admiral Mcraven book for life is a great read for those of us who are qualified Special Forces, Rangers or Seals. I can relate to his trials in becoming a SEAL which is no minor accomplishment. I just do not think his stories transition well to those entering the work force or looking for guidance for what to do next. Those who aspire to do great things, I believe, are already internally motivated and no amount of cold, phyiscal demand or sand in one’s life will deter them from thir goals. If this books helps one individual learn the importance of never giving up on one’s goals for life, then the Admiral has hit the mark.

    To be clear it's a one hour read. Not sure if that's a good or a bad thing. I am going to go with a good thing. Maybe it's not the length of the book but the strength of the book that matters. I will reread it and see how it helps and or affects me, and perhaps edit or add to my review.
  • Inspiring is an understatement...a MUST READ!
