5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read, 27 Jun. 2011

This review is from: Mud, Sweat and Tears (Hardcover)
As my boys and I are real fans of Bear's adventures, we were looking forward to this and it doesn't disappoint.

A very honest account of Bear's life to date and a real inspiration. Though he is very religious (he has to be in order to be the Chief Scout) he allows room in his book to pass on the views of his friends and colleagues who do not share his conviction which gives it a good balance.

The 'chapters' are extremely short but for younger readers this makes for easier reading in an anecdotal style. It was excellent when reading to my nine year old son when he had lost his nerve after an accident. One chapter of this and he was fine.

The SAS training also shows that even Bear is human and has limits.

Word to the wise, no-one 'signs' the Official Secrets Act. It is an act of legislation; so all of the UK are subject to it. The 'signing' is just a reminder of your duties.

No hesitation in giving these five stars. It does exactly what it says on the tin.
