Here is a review :
We ordered a dozen + of these to give as gifts to friends. A wonderful book to give as a gift for graduation, new career, retirement - or just as encouragement for anyone. This book is based on the iconic speech Admiral McRaven gave at the University of Texas - Austin Commencement Address in 2014. If you haven't seen the Youtube video of the speech you need to watch and listen to it.
One of the all time best speeches ever given. Do as we did and order a dozen or more and keep them tucked away for those occasions when you need a perfect gift for someone. You won't be sorry.
