When Becky Blades sent her firstborn daughter off to Harvard, she knew the world's top ranked college would not be covering the most important material: How to be kind, happy and appropriate in public; how to protect oneself from sock monsters, boring conversations and scary dates; why to keep the clothes clean. Just in time for her youngest daughter's graduation from high school, Blades illustrated the prose with her signature mixed media artwork, creating a thought-provoking, conversation-starting book. With warmth, wit, and a hint of motherly sass, the book blends bite-sized morsels of coming-of-age common sense such as "Keep at least one stuffed animal," and "A bad attitude makes your butt look big," with tiny essays on topics like forgiveness and phone etiquette. The perfect gift from mother to daughter or from friend to friend, Do Your Laundry Or You'll Die Alone is wise counsel for women of all ages, reminding us to trust our instincts and to show our dreams who's boss.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER "Should be read by every leader in America...a book to inspire your children and grandchildren to become everything that they can." --Wall Street Journal "Powerful." --USA Today "Full of captivating personal anecdotes from inside the national security vault." --Washington Post "Superb, smart, and succinct." --Forbes BASED ON THE INCREDIBLE GRADUATION SPEECH WITH OVER 10 MILLION VIEWS ON YOUTUBE If you want to change the world, start off by making your bed. On May 17, 2014, Admiral William H. McRaven addressed the graduating class of the University of Texas at Austin on their Commencement day. Taking inspiration from the university's slogan, "What starts here changes the world," he shared the ten principles he learned during Navy Seal training that helped him overcome challenges not only in his training and long Naval career, but also throughout his life; and he explained how anyone can use these basic lessons to change themselves-and the world-for the better. Admiral McRaven's original speech went viral with over 10 million views. Building on the core tenets laid out in his speech, McRaven now recounts tales from his own life and from those of people he encountered during his military service who dealt with hardship and made tough decisions with determination, compassion, honor, and courage. Told with great humility and optimism, this timeless book provides simple wisdom, practical advice, and words of encouragement that will inspire readers to achieve more, even in life's darkest moments.
