From the Sunday Times bestselling author of Make Your Bed: ten lessons on overcoming barriers, building confidence and finding new inspiration and motivation.

In the course of his distinguished career Admiral William H.

Drawing on stories of their incredible strength, humility and courage, Admiral McRaven has distilled the Hero Code – the ten habits that make ordinary people capable of extraordinary things.

This book will show how we can all persevere to rise above our failures, use humour as a source of strength and inspire trust through integrity, as well as offering practical advice on rising to the occasion, coping with setbacks and becoming our best selves.

Above all, this book offers simple and practical wisdom that we can all use to find encouragement, inspiration and optimism for the new year.
