Serious Action!!, 14 Oct. 2013
These are two adventures in the truest sense of the word. One chronologically follows the other and are probably the beginning of all that we have come to know and love about Bear Grylls! Both take place during his twenties, after he left the SAS due to injuries sustained during a parachuting accident. The first, an unlikely attempt to reach the summit of Everest, the second, an amazing journey in a rigid hulled inflatable boat to try to cross the Arctic Atlantic Ocean.
I could not put this book down. It is humorous and compelling and you feel that you are almost there with him.The books keep you on the edge of your seat almost all the time, waiting to see if the end result is success or failure!
