Already a #1 London Sunday Times Bestseller, Mud, Sweat, and Tears is the adrenaline-fueled autobiography of the mega-popular star of the hit survival series Man Vs. Wild, adventurer Bear Grylls. A former British Special Forces commando, a man who has always sought the ultimate in dangerous challenges, Bear’s true story reads like an outdoors action and adventure novel. But Bear’s story is true—full of breathtaking escapes and remarkable exploits that would make any Jack London or H. Ryder Haggard hero proud.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Tim Westenberg | 2/18/2014

    " I liked the start and all the things he said about persistence and his attitude towards life. My favourite section of the book was the SAS part. But at the end it got a bit repetitive. "

    " A surprisingly slow read. Despite the genuinely amazing stuff that Bear has done and the clear enthusiasm for life and everything he does, the actual book isnt that gripping. Worth pursuing though because there isnt many people who have done what he has, however I think his(?) writing style based around short anecdotes and layering a story down about longer missions works better when he does his presentations/lectures rather than being written down. "

    " While this book is clearly not a work of literary genius, it is certainly an interesting (and easy) read. Bear Grylls is just such an interesting guy. He seems to be missing some sort of risk evaluation component in his psyche, but as well as that he seems to be overendowed with brassiness and determination. The whole book (i.e. his life) is virtually an illustration of the SAS saying 'Who dares wins'. His Christian profession is also interesting. His life is hardly one of exemplary Christian living, and conservative Christians could find themselves shocked (perhaps disgusted?) by some of the things he openly admits to. Nonetheless he seems to be genuinely guided by his faith in Jesus Christ, though I would trust him more in terms of his motivational energy rather than his ability to make discerning Christian decisions. "

    " Fast paced and fascinating. SAS and Everest particularly well written with some very human incites. I'd not even seen a Man v Wild episode but had hear of Bear in the periphery - he writes a good yarn. Very easy on the brain, good holiday fodder. "
