Described by the Honourable Kim Beazley AC as a beautifully written memoir, this is the rare and extraordinary story of an Australian submariner. From conducting top-secret missions to making Australian submarine history, Commodore Peter Scott depicts what it takes to be a Submariner. Over a decorated 34-year career, Commodore Scott served in 10 submarines, passed the most demanding military command course in the world and served as the Head of Profession of the Submarine Arm of the Royal Australian Navy. During that time his character was forged by the challenges of naval service, success and failure as a leader, catastrophic onboard disasters while dived, and life-threatening traumas. Along the way, he also endured personal battles with self-doubt, addiction, depression and anxiety. In this honest and enlightening tale, he shares his quest for selfacceptance, and for the courage, commitment and compassion to lead the warriors of Australias Silent Service.
Peter Scott joined the Royal Australian Navy as a seventeen-year-old Midshipman and rose over three decades to be the Head of Profession of the Navys elite - the Submarine Arm. Having retired from full-time naval service as a Commodore in early 2017, he now works as an Executive Coach using his experience and a Masters in Coaching Psychology to unleash the courage, compassion and wisdom of todays leaders.
