About the Author
Bear Grylls’ expertise in survival has made him a household name both in his native UK and far beyond its borders. His early training in martial arts and the years he spent as a soldier in the British Special Forces no doubt laid the technical groundwork for what would eventually become his lifelong campaign to face the dangers of the wild and live to tell each tale. What began as passion soon became Emmy-nominated series Man vs. Wild, a show that brought him worldwide acclaim and an audience of over one billion; in it, Grylls was dropped into harsh landscapes and forced to use various survival tactics to keep himself alive, a structure that proved not only exciting but also educational for its audience. He has since become the host of NBC’s Running Wild—in which he guides celebrities through outdoor adventures—and other survival-based TV shows that air around the world. Grylls is an author, businessman, TV star, honorary Colonel to the Royal Marines Commandos, the UK Scout Association’s youngest ever Chief Scout, and soon-to-be host of National Geographic’s new series Hostile Planet.
