Fans of Man vs Wild will not want to miss this book!
Bear Grylls is known by many for his adventures in the hit television show Man vs. Wild. His grit, tenacity, and ability to get out of a sticky situation resonated with many while others were just shocked at what he was willing to put his body through. In his previous book, Bear told his life story and mostly omitted the many adventures he had on the small screen because he wanted people to know who he was as a person. After popular demand, he has documented the best of the best (and worst) of these adventures into another book to share with the world. Focused largely on the television series, viewers and readers alike will continue to be awestruck and shocked at what all he went through to bring his world into your living room.
I’ll admit, I never really got caught up in the hype of the show Man vs. Wild, but I have watched a few episodes and heard Bear Grylls talk about some of his adventures, so I had some background before diving into this book. But even if I hadn’t, this would have been such a fun read! It goes through many of the most extreme things that he had to do and it’s amazing that he lived through all of it. It is also interesting to read about how the show was filmed and what they had to do to make it work, especially when the crew were dropping like flies. He sprinkles in a lot of great life lessons through this and breaks it up with several chapters so that it is not a daunting read. Probably going to be one of my favorite biographies for the year. There is some language as well as some pretty gross things, so take caution before you jump in!
