Admiral William H. McRaven of the Navy Seals takes his commencement speech at the University of Texas and expounds on his points that he made with testimonials and life experience from a life working in the Navy. What follows is an extremely down to earth and simplified message on how to overcome life’s obstacles. McRaven follows a military mindset that encourages discipline and self-will. I think the people that might not enjoy this small book are those that say, “hey, everything in life can’t be overcome with pure grit and determination,” and they would be right, but that isn’t to say that the lessons that McRaven are giving the reader can’t be beneficial in some way. A quick listen, something a younger person would get a lot out of, especially those thinking about going into the military.
