Revue de presse

"Men don't come much tougher than daredevil climber and adventurer, Bear Grylls" (Sun)

"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)

Présentation de l'éditeur

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. Now, for the first time, Bear tells the story of his action-packed life. Gripping, moving and wildly exhilarating, Mud, Sweat and Tears is a must-read for adrenalin junkies and armchair adventurers alike.

Fan des shows de B. Grylls, je pensais en apprendre un peu plus sur la réalité qui se cache derrière l'homme des séries TV. J'avais déjà beaucoup lu sur les libertés prises avec la narration des Man vs Wild, afin de scénariser les aventures en amplifiant le côté isolation, prise de risques, là où parfois la proie "sauvage" chassée n'était qu'un vulgaire lapin d'élevage lâché par la production, où que Bear est 'perdu' à Hawaï, mais qu'en réalité la route n'est qu'à 300m... Bref, je n'imaginais pas retrouver ces choses là dans une biographie, et effectivement, on ne revient pas dessus ; ce n'est pas le propos d'ailleurs.

Le livre est donc une biographie de l'auteur par lui-même. Organisée en 4 grandes parties (une 5ème en toute fin de livre, mais sur quelques pages seulement), elle retrace les périodes de sa vie : l'enfance, la sélection pour les SAS (Bataillon de Réserve, de ce côté la description est honnête), le premier accident en saut en parachute, la rééducation et ascension de l'Everest...

Personnellement la première partie est trop longue à mon goût. S'il est intéressant de savoir d'où vient Grylls, et quelles sont les valeurs fondamentales qui l'ont aidé à grandir, cette section aurait gagné à être moins fournie.
La sélection pour les SAS correspond en grande partie à ce que l'on voit des reportages sur la légion, où les services du genre GIGN.

Un livre que j'ai lu avec intérêt néanmoins, même s'il ne marquera pas mon année 2012.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Full of Warmth, Personality, and Inspiration 3 juillet 2013
Par J. Robideau - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
While I have not been a big fan of Bear Grylls' tv shows(for mostly superficial reasons), his name is so big in survival and outdoor education circles that I figured that I owed it to myself to check out this autobiography.

I am so glad that I did!

From the very beginning, the storytelling drew me in. The portrayal of the lives and often heroic actions of his ancestors warmed my heart in a way that few authors manage. Even better than the storytelling was Bear's insight into the attitudes and principles of these people and the explanations of how this history and these stories affected him and helped to shape him into the person that he is now.

The book continues with numerous personal stories of adventure in it's many forms.

This book and it's stories contain fantastic life lessons about:
-Courage
-Honor
-Perseverance
-Dealing with difficulty and fear
-Patience
-Learning from difficulty and mistakes
-Hope
-Self-respect
-Knowing your limitations
-Pushing yourself to your limits
-Love
-Value of family

This book was written in the first person and has a very conversational and warm style. When the author reveals personal information about his thoughts, fears, etc during a particular story, it feels like he is letting you in on a little secret. It was obvious that the book was professionally edited. Unfortunately, the kindle formatting left a little to be desired. The TOC is properly linked, but you cannot access the TOC direct from the "Go To..." menu. This would be inexcusable in a reference book, but for this autobiography, I doubt many people will be trying to repeatedly reference the TOC.

I absolutely recommend this book for:
- Anyone who enjoys a well-told story
- Anyone who enjoys adventure and the outdoors
- A young person who wants to learn
- Anyone who wants insight into the personality and person of Bear Grylls - Stalkers ;-)

If you enjoy reading about survival and prepping, I also recommend Ultralight Survival: Make a Small and Light Bug Out Bag That Could Save Your Life for specific advice on creating the lightest and most efficient bug-out-bag possible.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Humble and determined to the end - a great inspiration 26 janvier 2017
Par David Andrews - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Bear Grylls is a household name due to his work on TV, primarily the show Man vs. Wild. However, his story is not that of just a TV presenter - it’s a curious combination of privilege and hardship, from his education at the world famous Eton College to his rather humble beginnings as a penniless karate instructor. He has suffered mightily in his years, but has also triumphed, and this is his story - one of determination, enthusiasm, and faith.

Mud, Sweat, and Tears isn’t necessarily the most well-written autobiography in existence, but it is easy to read, chopped into a hundred different stories covering his family, his upbringing, his grueling entrance into the UK’s Special Air Service and subsequent medical retirement following a skydiving injury that nearly left him paralyzed for life. Then on, to Mount Everest, his wife, and finally his burgeoning TV career.

What Grylls lacks in eloquence he makes up for in spades with genuinely interesting, funny, charming, heartbreaking, and unrelenting stories. He once appeared in a “Most Interesting Man in the World” Dos Equis commercial as a special adviser, but honestly he is probably the closest you can get to the Most Interesting Man in the World in real life.

Astonishingly, though, the one aspect of his life that shines through more than any other is just how humble and determined he is. He has had his share of lucky breaks, but also extreme adversity. While he certainly has enjoyed privileges, he’s also put in the work - and been justly rewarded. The book is well worth a read if for no other reason than to be inspired by the vision of hard work and relentless optimism.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Inspirational and motivating 14 août 2011
Par Nat - Publié sur Amazon.com

The first time I watched Bear's show, Man vs Wild, I was pretty shocked by some of his actions but also in awe. While some episodes or instances have me changing the channel, unable to watch, there was that something which kept me coming back and I realized soon enough that it was admiration for his strength and motivation. I think for many viewers, they see in Bear what they themselves wished they possessed - the ability to throw off all restraints (metaphorically) and just take the plunge into the unknown. For me, I've always had a strong passion for mountaineering. The extent I let that passion take me was simply hiking up a few small mountains, and for the most part just sitting down and reading books or watching DVDs on the sport. It's easy to tell ourselves we can't do something and therefore we find ourselves in a position where we believe it and don't even try.

Reading Bear's book gave me inspiration and motivation far beyond that of Man vs Wild. Reading about the extremes that he pushed his body to go through out of sheer determination to join the Special Forces had me out of my chair the next day, pushing my body through a work-out I can't recall it ever being put through before. Bear also shows himself to be a very philosophical and perceptive individual, with a deep love of nature and life in general. His experience in Calcutta and subsequent brush with Mother Teresa is heart-felt and uplifting, and it gave me pause to reflect on the circumstances and privileges of my own life that I take for granted. I can't even begin to comprehend the level of strength and will power required to get back out there after breaking ones back, but Bear knew he had it in him and he kept going. Wow.

I can't recommend this book enough. Bear doesn't just stand for being an adrenaline junkie or yes, drinking your own piss, but rather he stands for the knowledge that we can be more, we can push ourselves more, and we can accomplish more - but we need the belief in ourselves, that determination, and a willingness to put in the hard work. Cheers Bear - you've said what I think a lot of us need to hear.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A good Example of Truth Being More Amazing Than Fiction 31 août 2014
Par Andrew - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I'm a big fan of watching 'Man v Wild', or other shows with Bear Grylls on TV. The shows themselves are very entertaining, but I didn't know much about the guy who stars in them. When this book came up as an Amazon Daily Deal I thought it was a good opportunity to find out.

When I added this to my Goodreads list I was shocked to see that it had rating of over 4 after over 3,000 reviewers. That seems to be exceptional for an autobiography.

For me, this book did live up to the high Goodreads rating. It's surprisingly well written and reminded my a lot of Anthony Bourdain in terms of style and sense of humor. Bear Grylls is a very modest guy. He says he is just an average guy with a lot of drive but I would bet not one guy in 10,000 could achieve anything like what he has. While still a student, he qualified for the British Special forces, the SAS. The SAS recruitment STARTS with something like hell week. Their logic is that if you survive that, the special soldering and training is the easy part. Thus Bear qualified for the SAS as a civilian, not coming from the military first. He gives a good account of what some of this qualifying entails, and it's tough, really tough.

His military career ended when he broke his back in a parachute accident and spent most of a year in hospital and rehab. So what does he do after that, he climbs Everest! He recounting of this climb was fascinating.

I can see how Bear Grylls makes a great motivational speaker. He's a man with incredible drive, passion and determination which you only get a slight glimpse of watching him on TV.

4.5 stars overall.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 True grit...if only more people had the same attitude 1 janvier 2012
Par macmaniac - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
To be honest having not seen any of Bears TV shows I was not sure what to expect from this book but given the reviews I thought I would give it a shot and I am pleased I did.

An inspiring book that gives a balanced amount of space to the different stages of Bear growing up, SAS selection, the Everest climb but also was balanced in terms of not all macho but also explained the emotional aspects as well. Some resonating quotes and on reflection one sums up well the core attitude and grit that is now missing in the majority of the UK; "life is what you make of it. And with that there comes responsibility. No one will do it all for you. That is left to each of us: to go out, to grab life and to make it our own...work hard, play hard; be modest; do your job to your utmost, laugh at yourself and sometimes, if you have to, cuff it."

To have the mental strength to survive the SAS selection but then recover from the despair of that back injury from skydiving only to then climb Everest is what shone through more than the physical effort required. Without a doubt though, a big helping of luck on several occasions. Perhaps was a cat in a former life and still had the nine lives!

If you are a person who treasures and craves for experiences in life rather than a world solely of material goods then you should enjoy this book.
