From the acclaimed New York Times bestselling author of Make Your Bed comes 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 has 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.
