Summary, etc.:
In his 37 years in the military, McRaven saw both the best and worst of humanity and shares stories of the real, everyday heroes who have inspired him.
Growing up in Texas, McRaven dreamed of being a superhero and saving the earth from destruction. As he grew older he found real heroes everywhere he went-- and none of them had superpowers, none 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. Here he discusses the lessons in virtues that can become the foundations of our character as we build a life worthy of honor and respect. -- adapted from Amazon info
