***Read our Q&A with the author here***

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

  • 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.
  • Lucy Giles contained a deadly e.coli outbreak in Sierra Leone.
  • Ed Withey even organised 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.


AUTHOR: The Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS) is where all officers in the British Army are trained to take on the responsibility of leading their soldiers. During training, all officer cadets learn to live by the academy's motto: 'Serve to Lead'. Officers who have graduated from Sandhurst include: Prince William, Prince Harry, Sir Winston Churchill and astronaut Tim Peake. Other Nations choose to send their personnel to Sandhurst for Officer training because it is recognised as a world-leading military training academy. Major General Paul Nanson CBE is a British Army officer who serves as Commandant of the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and General Officer Commanding Recruiting and Initial Training Command. During his thirty year career in the British army, he has served in The Troubles, the Gulf War, the Bosnian War, the Iraq War, and the war in Afghanistan, which saw him appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire for distinguished services. In his tenure at Sandhurst he has established the Centre for Army Leadership, the world's premier centre for army leadership.
