There is a YouTube video of Admiral William H. McRaven giving a commencement speech at the University of Texas. It is about following ten principles that he learned from Navy Seal training to change himself and to change the world. This book adds depth to the ten principles with stories from his years in military service. Watch the video first. If you enjoy that, you'll probably enjoy the book. Military analogies for life lessons might not appeal to everyone.

At 66 years old, I thought for sure my character was well-crafted and established for the rest of my life. I believed that I had read most all of the important authors and had been exposed to the most important Concepts for a successful life. This book, in its simplicity, has introduced me to a new code for action. Know I have a new Mantra to repeat every morning. It comes in the form of a list that I hand-wrote after reading this book. 10 points to live by. As I write this I look forward to a better life because of making my bed. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.

I heard about this book from a podcast interview and liked the sound of this book. I even put aside my reservations about the price (just under £10), given such a short book.
However, just about everything mentioned in the book was covered in the 20-40 minute podcast and the book seems to repeat itself at times.
Perhaps a shorter book and much lower price would make this work. There is 4-5 star advice given, but quite a lot of padding.
Really enjoyed this book and feel inspired by the stories told. It has helped me become more disciplined in my daily life and have started taking pride in the way I compete the mundane tasks that I often neglected then would pay for it later
A great inspiration. Some wonderful life lessons that I will be passing onto my children. Highly recommended.
