    5 well earned stars for this motivational story of Admiral William H. McRavens journey to becoming a navy seal. This book was written and narrated in 2017 by the Admiral himself. The book also includes his famous commencement speech, which took place on May 21st, 2014, for the graduati...

    (I use this kindle cover, because the hardback doesn't have the picture, which is the same as this.) This book is made out of the speech the author gave in 2014 - 10 principles learned during Navy SEAL training. The principles are given as help to overcome challenges in training, ca...

    "Remember...start each day with a task completed. Find someone to help you through life. Respect everyone. Know that life is fair and you will fail often. But if you take some risks, step up when times are toughest, face down bullies, lift up the downtrodden, and never, ever, give up -...

    I don't know why I requested this book, I thought maybe it'll inspire me to make my bed or inspire me to accomplish stuff. I should have checked the blurb and the author. Thank goodness it was a very short book. The author is an admiral, former SEAL, etc - I would like to say that t...

    One of those "inspirational" or self-help books that come out from time to time. I heard the author interviewed, and wanted to read his book. It's a quick read. Each chapter has advise for life, starting out with: "Make your bed." Because when you start out accomplishing something at t...

    Admiral William H. McRaven?s book, Make Your Bed- Little Things That Can Change Your Life? And Maybe The World is another one of those really small self-help books that you can stack on a really small shelf, maybe in your really small tiny-house right between Maria Shriver?s Just...

    My Rating: 4 Sugar cookies Great motivational essay by retired Admiral and Navy SEAL William McRaven. I recommend the audio version that is read by the author, but the book is fine if you prefer the written word. Several life lessons and principals of how to live your life. ...

    If you haven?t already seen Admiral William McRaven?s 2014 speech to the graduating class of the University of Texas ? check it out. It definitely had a profoundly positive effect on me when I first saw it. I wish I had received a speech like that when I graduated! But luckily no...

    I mean, it's good encouragement. Admiral McRaven (awesome name) boils down ten character items he learned in Navy SEAL training, and applies them to everyday life for the uniformed and un-uniformed alike. He tells stories about his experiences in training and as an active-duty SEAL and...

    This was one of those books that (if you have read the blurb) is exactly what you expect it to be. The book is based on a speech that Admiral McRaven made for the graduating class at The University of Texas at Austin in 2014. The speech is included at the end of the book, which I initi...

    (I use this kindle cover, because the hardback doesn't have the picture, which is the same as this.) This book is made out of the speech the author gave in 2014 - 10 principles learned during Navy SEAL training. The principles are given as help to overcome challenges in training, ca...

    I don't know why I requested this book, I thought maybe it'll inspire me to make my bed or inspire me to accomplish stuff. I should have checked the blurb and the author. Thank goodness it was a very short book. The author is an admiral, former SEAL, etc - I would like to say that t...

    One of those "inspirational" or self-help books that come out from time to time. I heard the author interviewed, and wanted to read his book. It's a quick read. Each chapter has advise for life, starting out with: "Make your bed." Because when you start out accomplishing something at t...

    Admiral William H. McRaven?s book, Make Your Bed- Little Things That Can Change Your Life? And Maybe The World is another one of those really small self-help books that you can stack on a really small shelf, maybe in your really small tiny-house right between Maria Shriver?s Just...

    My Rating: 4 Sugar cookies Great motivational essay by retired Admiral and Navy SEAL William McRaven. I recommend the audio version that is read by the author, but the book is fine if you prefer the written word. Several life lessons and principals of how to live your life. ...

    Sure. It's good advice if you want to be SEAL or if you're just graduating college. But there isn't really nuance. Make your bed. Saddam Hussein didn't. Never quit. Really? ...

    Make Your Bed is an incredible gem packaged tightly into a small book that lends itself well to an easy and quick read. This book offers tidbits that are simplistic yet powerful. Each chapter highlights a little thing that can make great change in one?s life which then can change the...

    4.25 This book will be perfect for so many students and particularly reluctant readers who need inspiration :) Personally I wish it had a little more meat to it, but it had some great advice and I am sure I will refer back to it again. ...

    If you haven?t already seen Admiral William McRaven?s 2014 speech to the graduating class of the University of Texas ? check it out. It definitely had a profoundly positive effect on me when I first saw it. I wish I had received a speech like that when I graduated! But luckily no...

    I mean, it's good encouragement. Admiral McRaven (awesome name) boils down ten character items he learned in Navy SEAL training, and applies them to everyday life for the uniformed and un-uniformed alike. He tells stories about his experiences in training and as an active-duty SEAL and...

    This book was inspirational on many levels. Every page contains wisdom and inspiration. Powerful. This is one I?ll be reading again. ...

    THIS BOOK IS AMAZING AND WILL MAKE YOU WANT TO GO CHANGE THE WORLD!!! ...

    I had read portions of Admiral McRaven's University of Texas Commencement speech on the internet, and had known a handful of SEALs in my life. This is a great little collections of life lessons learned learning and doing one of the most amazing training in the world. Started on audio ...

    Randomly picked this book yesterday and I finished read in one sitting. 10 motivational stories with related life lessons that the author learned in Navy SEAL training. I like the life lessons, only not so much for the story. ...

    Back in 2014 William gave his famous talk at UT in Austin (which is in this book). I had read the transcript and really enjoyed it. In fact, this part here was what inspired me: If you make your bed every morning you will have accomplished the first task of the day. It will give you...

    This was one of those books that (if you have read the blurb) is exactly what you expect it to be. The book is based on a speech that Admiral McRaven made for the graduating class at The University of Texas at Austin in 2014. The speech is included at the end of the book, which I initi...

    This is a short, well presented set of standard life advice, but it is a great example of why some advice is always repeated ? because it is correct and largely optimal. McRaven uses examples from his military career, and frequently from SEAL BUD/S training, to illustrate otherwise g...

    great points. Interesting that the Admiral believes that starting with something -- like making your bed -- helps propel you thru the day into doing other tasks until you can bite off something big and meaningful. I think he is onto something here. ...

    I got this after seeing Admiral McRaven interviewed.After reading it I viewed his commencement speech at The U of Texas,and several other videos and stories.Fabulous man,smart encouraging book. ...
