Waterstones Says

Follow in the footsteps of Sandhurst’s most formidable recruits with this revealing and invaluable guide to personal development with military precision. Featuring ten life lessons that range from domestic chores to high pressure decision making, Stand Up Straight is the perfect book to unlock your true potential. 

For Life's Everyday Battles - The first official self-improvement and leadership book from the British Army's world-leading Sandhurst Academy.

Winston Churchill never surrendered. Prince Harry has fought for mental health around the world. Tobias Ellwood risked his life to save others during the Westminster terrorist attack. Tim Peake became Britain's first astronaut on the International Space Station. Nicola Wetherill led the first all-female expedition across the Antarctic ice. Ed Withey even organized his wedding with military precision.

The one thing all of these individuals have in common? Their world-class Sandhurst training.

Stand Up Straight applies 10 simple but transformative lessons that every officer is taught during their time at the world-famous military academy. Modern and counter-intuitive, with its lessons ranging from making your bed and ironing your shirt to achieving discipline, emotional intelligence, resilience and fast decision-making under pressure, the book draws on first-hand experiences from war as well as the leadership lessons taught at Sandhurst.

The result is a groundbreaking personal development book that can easily be applied to every aspect of civilian life - work, home, confidence, anxiety, family and friends.
