A kick up the backside we all need in life!

If you could sum up A Survival Guide for Life in three words, what would they be?

inspirational, uplifting, driven

What was one of the most memorable moments of A Survival Guide for Life?

Can't pin it down to one - the stories Bear has to tell of his life experiences, Everest, the last sip of water in the desert and many more!

What does Tom Patrick Stephens bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

A balanced, calm but firm voice, who portrayed the essence of the book perfectly.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

If you want it, go out into the world and get it! Don't give up!

Any additional comments?

Bear offers guidance, insight into his mind-set, experiences (which he generally wants to pass on to others), passion, drive, a reality check to the sometimes harsh experiences we face in life. Most of all though, this book gives you a kick up the backside to get off the sofa and get out there and live life to the full!
