Bear was the youngest British climber to reach the summit of Mt. Everest and return alive. He was recently awarded an honorary commission as a Lieutenant-Commander in the Royal Navy, and resides with his wife and son in London.

The text is fairly small, and there is a LOT of detailed descriptions of various scenarios and envirmoments that you may someday have to survive in. I found it to be unlike his show in that it is NOT reckless and does NOT demonstrate improper survival techniques. There is a LOT of QUALITY information on survival in this book, along with great color photographs and some Bear anecdotes scattered throughout. I own several other survival books, and this one isn't my favorite, but it definitely has it's place as a valuable resource amongst them. Worth checkin' out if you're into survival type stuff and/or into Bear Grylls. I bought my copy "used," which, if you're unsure like I was, is a safe bet.
Not just marketing hype or poorly written, actually very good!
CAN'T GO WRONG WITH THIS BOOK.
NOW IF BEAR GRYLLS EVER WRITES A BOOK ON TAX EVASION...GOD HELP THE IRS!!
