Bear Grylls - Mud, Sweat & Tears (2nd Hand Paperback)
Gripping, moving and wildly exhilarating, Mud, Sweat and Tears is a must-read for adrenalin junkies and armchair adventurers alike.
Bear Grylls is a man who has always sought the ultimate in adventure. Growing up on the Isle of Wight, he was taught by his father to sail and climb at an early age. As a teenager he found identity and purpose through both mountaineering and martial arts, which led the young adventurer to the foothills of the mighty Himalaya and a grandmaster's karate training camp in Japan.
On returning home, he embarked upon the notoriously gruelling selection course for the British Special Forces to join 21 SAS - a journey that was to push him to the very limits of physical and mental endurance.
Then, in a horrific free-fall parachuting accident, Bear broke his back in three places. It was touch and go whether he would ever walk again. However, only eighteen months later Bear became one of the youngest ever climbers to scale Everest, aged only twenty-three. But this was just the beginning of his many extraordinary adventures . . .
Known and admired by millions, Bear Grylls has survived where few would dare to go.

"Well told, personable, fast-paced, and undoubtedly a fascinating read' - The Daily Telegraph.
"This is a very enjoyable race through Bear Grylls' life - so far. He brings enthusiasm to everything he does and he does a lot, yet the well of enthusiasm keeps gushing fresh supplies. I learned a lot of new information from this book. I really enjoy his TV programmes and I warmed to Bear the person who is portrayed in this book. I knew that he had joined the SAS before I read this book but I did not know that he was an old-Etonian, the son, grandson, grand stepson, and great-grandson of MPs." - Google Review.
"Men don't come much tougher than daredevil climber and adventurer, Bear Grylls * The Sun.
"What a fantastic book! I've always been a fan of Bear Grylls' TV shows and this book certainly did not disappoint! He really is an amazing person who has achieved so many things in his life all down to his determination and enthusiasm. Highly recommend it." - Waterstones Review.
"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.
