Bear was brought up on a small island off the south coast of England, where his late father taught him to climb and sail. A martial arts expert, Bear went on to spend three years as a soldier in the British Special Forces (21 SAS). He then suffered a free fall parachuting accident in Africa, and broke his back in three places. Yet despite this, and after months of military rehabilitation, he went on to become the youngest Briton ever, and one of only an elite number of climbers, to reach the summit of Mount Everest. Now one of the youngest and most sought-after motivational speakers, he relates his remarkable experiences to audiences and corporations all around the world. Bear lives with his wife, Shara, and their little son, Jesse, on a Dutch barge in London and on a small, remote Welsh island. One day he hopes to buy a home that doesn't leak.
"Fascinating reading." -Tony Blair, Prime Minister of England "A vivid and inspiring read."--Kirkus Reviews "I highly recommend this remarkable book, and I know its readers will be as spellbound as I have been." --Michael, Prince of Kent "Bear Grylls, the youngest [Briton] to ascend Everest, did so agter many months recovering from a broken back. He writes convincingly of feat and doublt. This is an honest and compelling story." -Sir Ranulph Finnes, author of Mind over Matter: The Epic Crossing of the Antarctic Continent. "Bear Grylls is a young man with skills beyond his years, both in climbing and story telling. This book, like the feat of summiting Everest itself, is a great triumph of the human spirit." --Mike Tidwell, author of In the Mountains of Heaven: Tales of Adventure on Six Continents
