Product Description

Review

Mud, Sweat, and Tears is required reading for fans of Man vs. Wild but also for anyone who revels in first-person stories of high adventure.” (BOOKLIST)

“I cannont think of anyone who has faced challenges and overcome them like Bear Grylls.” (GENERAL CHARLES GUTHRIE, Colonel Commandant of the SAS)

Mud, Sweat, and Tears flows with the verve of an engaging novel and forms a satisfying life story brimming with excitement and adventuresome risk-taking. An inside look at the makings of an intrepid, insatiable explorer. ” (KIRKUS REVIEWS)

“World-famous ‘extreme adventurer’ Bear Grylls had so far avoided telling his life story--until now. Well told, personable, fast-paced, and undoubtedly a fascinating read.” (DAILY TELEGRAPH)

From the Back Cover

Bear Grylls has always sought the ultimate in adventure. Growing up on a remote island off of Britain's windswept coast, he was taught by his father to sail and climb at an early age. Inevitably, it wasn't long before the young explorer was sneaking out to lead all-night climbing expeditions.

As a teenager at Eton College, Bear found his identity and purpose through both mountaineering and martial arts. These passions led him into the foothills of the mighty Himalayas and to a karate grandmaster's remote training camp in Japan, an experience that soon helped him earn a second-degree black belt. Returning home, he embarked upon the notoriously grueling selection course for the British Special Forces to join the elite Special Air Service unit 21 SAS—a journey that would push him to the very limits of physical and mental endurance.

Then, disaster. Bear broke his back in three places in a horrific free-fall parachuting accident in Africa. It was touch and go whether he would walk again, according to doctors. However, only eighteen months later, a twenty three-year-old Bear became one of the youngest climbers to scale Mount Everest, the world's highest summit. But these were just the beginning of his many extraordinary adventures. . . .

Known and admired by millions as the star of Man vs. Wild, Bear Grylls has survived where few would dare to go. Now, for the first time, Bear tells the story of his action-packed life. Gripping, moving, and wildly exhilarating, Mud, Sweat, and Tears is a must-read for adrenaline junkies and armchair explorers alike.

To learn about a true adventurer is always fun and exiting. Aside from climbing a mountain and enjoying a coffee at the summit with the man, this is as close as you can get to Mr. Bear Grylls without being family, a friend, or a stalker.

In this book you learn about all the life choices and directions he and his family before him took to have him end up where he is today. Even though there are exciting memoirs, if you're expecting a "Man vs Wild" episode you may be disappointed. As with most auto biographies I've read there are times when not being a professional writer comes through, but you can get an idea of how he speaks so it has it's upside.

All in all, a great read! Truly an inspiring role model!

A very interesting story of the life of an adventure seeking person. Bear's life as a teenager growing up is not very much different from any one of us. He was an average, or even an under-average youngster while growing up and at school making trouble out of his own nature, but the friends and relatives and environment, and absolutely his determination, really moulded him into becoming someone much tougher than you can imagine. This is a good reflection of life of an extreme adverturer. Ways to prove moving forward in great achievement in life. Good read.

He's a good guy. that is what made me like it. a good Christian soldier with a great attitude and i mean come on who can't love Bear Grylls, he is a natural born leader and his positive attitude is contagious. no ego, just passion and adventurous soul.

My only complaint was i found the writing could have been improved...was written in a very childlike simple style so the descriptions were a bit bare bones...i think he could have done with a co- author or editor or something to spice up the writing a bit to bring more life to his stories.

A fun read and less extreme and far more humbling than some of the TV shows but really gives you an insight into the man behind the name. Couldn't put it down
