This was the kind of book that I wish I could carry around with me all of the time. It was small and short and to the point but solid.
Originally a graduation speech, Make Your Bed is 10 simple lessons to change the world. The original speech is included at the back of the book but the 10 lessons are told in short chapters, most of them relating to McRaven’s Navy Seal training. I have never had much interest in the services but even I found the stories inspiring, quaint, amusing, and sometimes touching.
I’ve been a believer in bed making for a few years now, since reading Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project. To me this is just basic advice and it is indicative of what you will find here. Nothing new, but a good reinforcement that could easily be read in a day.
