Admiral William McRaven (Ret) is the most well-known and decorated Admiral in recent American history. He served with great distinction in the Navy, first as a SEAL and then later as the commander of JSOC and as the head of the operation that took down Osama bin Laden. He is now chancellor of the University of Texas system and a public speaker in high demand in the business and education circuits.
"Exquisitely simple...superb, smart, and succinct
"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
"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
