how to survive life intact

Would you consider the audio edition of A Survival Guide for Life to be better than the print version?

i have read the book and listened to the audible and it was just as good Bear has his own survival teqniques to living life which i tried to put into practice even if you take a little from this you will gain alot

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Survival Guide for Life?

I was at a boarding school as well and life is very much like he described and it was nice to hear that you are not the only one to go through this and to see a more human side that everybody can associate with is great

Have you listened to any of Tom Patrick Stephens’s other performances? How does this one compare?

sorry not yet but will look out for him in other books

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

both as i said i have shared alot of the ups and downs from school to the military and it makes you feel that nothing is out of your reach

A kick up the backside we all need in life!

If you could sum up A Survival Guide for Life in three words, what would they be?

inspirational, uplifting, driven

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Survival Guide for Life?

Can't pin it down to one - the stories Bear has to tell of his life experiences, Everest, the last sip of water in the desert and many more!

What does Tom Patrick Stephens bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

A balanced, calm but firm voice, who portrayed the essence of the book perfectly.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

If you want it, go out into the world and get it! Don't give up!

Any additional comments?

Bear offers guidance, insight into his mind-set, experiences (which he generally wants to pass on to others), passion, drive, a reality check to the sometimes harsh experiences we face in life. Most of all though, this book gives you a kick up the backside to get off the sofa and get out there and live life to the full!
