This was a lovely little book. Indeed it's not big and doesn't contain lots of text. But that wasn't intented to be so. He shares life advice in the form of quotes and funny cartoons by artist Charlie Mackesy, his best buddy.
The advices are very inspirational and many of them are faith-based. Relevant scripture verses like Matt 28:20. Other christian quotes, many of which are focused on Jesus:
- "Jesus came to seek and to save us, let Him do his job!"
- "It is a sign of great strength to need Jesus in your life."
- "Moments of doubt are part of life. Accept them and remember that Jesus Himself said: My power is made perfect in weakness!"
Non-christians might not like the number of faith-based quotes that Bear put in, but the book contains relevant non-spiritual advice as well, so it's good for all.
What I liked was the fact that you get a very good idea of the person of Bear Grylls and what he values in life. To sum it up in a nutshell: Live your dreams, be kind to others, trust your life to Jesus Christ and value the Bible.

This was a cute book I purchased for my husband for Father's Day. He is a fan of Bear Grylls, but we were both disappointed that there was not more substance to the content of the book. It consists of an illustration on one page and an accompanied short sentence or two of advice (or an occaisional scripture verse) related to the cartoon and topic (127 pages). We were hoping for more of a story or narrative for him to enjoy.

I bought this book because I like Bear and was excited to hear some good survival tips from a father to his sons. Unfortunately it is book filled with uninspiring sayings and overused thoughts. Not worth the $$$ or time. Bear is still the man but not much of an author.
