"Men don't come much tougher than daredevil climber and adventurer, Bear Grylls" (Sun)

"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)

Starting with his remarkable family history through SAS(R) training whilst 'studying' at uni through his ferocious accent up everest and a personal heartfelt insight to his private life and what keeps him going through the rough times. This book will grab you from the beginning and won't let go it's an honest, inspiring and personal account of life and it's struggles that we all face in one way or another can be over come. It personally has helped me make some big decisions in my life as to follow your heart and your instinct and have self belief.

Just could not put this book down! It arrived at 10am and I finished it that evening!
If you're a Bear Grylls fan and would like to know how he got to be the man he is today, or if you just appreciate a great success story of somebody who has worked really hard to achieve some amazing things, then I highly recommend this book.

I have a 10 yr old who hates reading so whenever he asks for a book I am completely taken aback and buy it! This hasn't disappointed, although he hasn 't finished it he is getting through it well and thoroughly enjoying it. Well written and captures their interest.

Having read the big 'boy' version and loved it which started a journey I could never have imagined, I bought this version to read to my 8 year old son. He was gripped by every word, start to finish. He and I quote from and draw from it many words that inspire us both. Thank you Bear x A must for any adventuring spirit, armchair or otherwise.

For anyone who hasn't read any of Bear's other books - this is a 5 star book.

For people who have read the Everest book (link below) then it loses a star, or possibly two if you are harsh. I will expand on this below.

I've read both of his main adventure books, Facing Up: A Remarkable Journey to the Summit of Mount Everest and Facing the Frozen Ocean: One man's dream to lead a team across the treacherous North Atlantic and was inspired to read the rest of his story in this book. However I was left feeling a little cheated that only 20 pages or so detail his life after the Everest expedition - which was almost 15 years ago. It's clearly going to be a two part autobiography but it should say this on the foreward, in my opinion.

It's split roughly into a third SAS selection, a third Everest, a sixth on his childhood and a sixth on post Everest (Man vs Wild and so on). The SAS selection is an eye opener and shows just how dogged and determined the guy is - a real inspiration. He is religious but not set in religious ways, which I found was a nice change, describing his faith in a way I haven't heard before - but not ramming it down your throat. It's a really good heartwarming read, basically written, but puts you right in amongst the action.

Unfortunately, passages from his Everest book are literally (excuse the pun) ripped out and put into this book. That's a shame in my eyes.

A great read. Exciting, funny, honest - I was completely hooked from the start and could barely put the book down in order to eat or do anything else. A no holds barred account of what made Bear the crazed adrenalin junkie he is today, as well as the family man devoted to his wife and family. SAS training, climbing Everest, eating raw snakes. All life is here!

"Mud, Sweat and Tears" written by Bear Grylls is an exciting autobiography of a man who has managed to do and achieve much of what was thought almost impossible - repeatedly.

Bear Grylls is a man who has always been different, while his passion for adventures started back in his early age when he left school and spent several months in India, hiking in the Himalayas. When he returned to UK, after the idea to join Indian army was left, he went to Special Air Service selection, successfully passed it and served there for three years.
During this period, due to free-fall parachuting accident he broke his back in three places and it was doubtful whether and when he will be able to stand on his own feet. He passed through long and difficult rehabilitation, especially motivated by his desire to climb Mount Everest, what has been his dream since childhood.

18 months after his parachuting accident Grylls entered the company of the world recorders when at the age of 23 he became the youngest British who succeeded to return alive after winning the world's highest peak. It was a new beginning of his adventure career that continued with numerous expeditions, adventures as well as TV shows in which he portrayed his ventures.

Grylls particularly became known due to his TV show "Man vs. Wild" on Discovery Channel, with general premise of each episode that Grylls and his crew are left alone in some region where is almost impossible to survive, finding their way back to civilized world.

"Mud, Sweat and Tears" is not work made in excellent literary style; if otherwise that would probably mean that he hired some ghost writers, so do not expect a masterpiece of literature.
