Notes From Your Bookseller

Admiral William H. McRaven is forever known for his "Make Your Bed" commencement address to the graduates at the University of Texas at Austin in 2014. The former U of T alum spoke about his time at the school and how doing one thing well — making your bed — is the start of other goals being met and can change a person, change a town and maybe, change the world. His new book, The Hero Code, explores the common attributes of everyday people whose perseverance, commitment and passion brought positive change to themselves and others.

This Barnes & Noble Exclusive Edition includes a bound in bookmark that features the 10 most important ways to live the Hero Code.

From the acclaimed, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Make Your Bed—a short, inspirational book about the qualities of true, everyday heroes.

THE HERO CODE is Admiral McRaven's ringing tribute to the real, everyday heroes he's met over the years, from battlefields to hospitals to college campuses, who are doing their part to save the world.

When Bill McRaven was a young boy growing up in Texas, he dreamed of being a superhero. He longed to put on a cape and use his superpowers to save the earth from destruction. But as he grew older and traveled the world, he found real heroes everywhere he went — and none of them had superpowers. None of them wore capes or cowls. But they all possessed qualities that gave them the power to help others, to make a difference, to save the world: courage, both physical and moral; humility; a willingness to sacrifice; and a deep sense of integrity.

THE HERO CODE is not a cypher, a puzzle, or a secret message. It is a code of conduct; lessons in virtues that can become the foundations of our character as we build a life worthy of honor and respect.
