Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable audiobook edition of Make Your Bed, written and read by William H. McRaven.
The incredible number one New York Times best seller.
Make your bed to change the world....
'What starts here changes the world' was the university slogan that inspired William H. McRaven to take charge of the small things that could change his life...and even the world. Here McRaven shares the 10 life-changing principles he learned during his 37 years as a Navy SEAL. These 10 philosophies helped him to overcome challenges not only in his career but also throughout his life. What's more anyone can use these basic lessons to change themselves, and the world, for the better....
Begin each day with a simple task, help one another through life, respect everyone, know that your life won't be fair and that you will fail often, take risks, step up when times are tough, face down the bullies, lift up the downtrodden and never, ever give up.
Do these things, and we will live in a far better world than the one before it....
Told with great humility and optimism, this timeless book provides simple and universal wisdom, practical advice and words of encouragement that will inspire listeners to achieve more even in life's darkest moments.

Not fluffy

This is an hour of awesome stuff. Simple and outstanding. Little wonder it is written by a seal- only gold nuggets excellently delivered.

A guide for life

Would you consider the audio edition of Make Your Bed to be better than the print version?

Any book narrated by the author will have an extra "something" compared to the printed version and this book is no different.

What did you like best about this story?

The short chapters make this an easy book to "dip into".

What about Admiral William H. McRaven’s performance did you like?

The Admiral isn't a trained actor or performer but this adds to the authenticity and enhances his genuine respect for those who have guided and influenced his life.

Any additional comments?

I would like to think one day the Admiral will write a more extensive autobiography and share an insider's view of the World we now live in and it's recent history.
