Usually, I'm not too fond of ex-Special Forces literature or self-help books. But the Hero Code is an exception. The term "inspirational" is often over-used, but William McRaven has managed to write a short book that's high on inspiration, and it's easy to read too. It's a rare combination.
William McRaven, the now-retired admiral and Navy SEAL commander, oversaw the raid that killed Usama Bin Laden. In his 37-year Navy career, McRaven saw "the worst of humanity" and "the best of mankind." However, the book – written with elegant simplicity – covers experiences beyond the military too. From astronauts to cancer scientists, the inspiration comes from diverse quarters.
Each chapter, comprising a story or two, focuses on one specific virtue: Courage, Humility, Sacrifice, Integrity, Compassion, Perseverance, Duty, Hope, Humor and Forgiveness. In each chapter, McRaven describes examples of these traits that he has encountered in other people during his life. The chapters might be concise, but they are uplifting and avoid the usual cliches so often found in similar books.
I enjoyed the book far more than I expected. It's an uplifting read.
