Publisher's Summary

Already a number-one London Sunday Times best seller, 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.

Corny, but Fun

Any additional comments?

Much like any of Bear Grylls TV shows, this book is a bit gung-ho, corny, but irrepressibly fun.

I enjoyed the stories about his military training and I think it is full of good life-advice for younger listeners. He manages references to his religious beliefs tastefully - it is an account of his life so it should play a prominent role in his story, but is not preachy or overbearing.

The most annoying thing about the book was that at the end of every chapter there is a one liner that is meant to summarize the theme or add punch. As I got further in to the book I started to anticipate them and enjoy their oversimplifying corniness. And by the end of the book it became hilarious.

Definitely recommended for Bear fans, people interested in a military career and young people who want some life advice from someone who has done well for himself.
