Dean Stott signing Relentless
WHSmith Fosse Park, Leicester LE19 1HY
Saturday 5 October from 1pm
Come and meet Special Boat Services soldier, Dean Stott at WHSmith Fosse Park, Leicester signing his autobiography Relentless.
'Dean's journey from the Special Boat Service to intrepid adventurer is truly inspirational.' - Sir Ranulph Fiennes 'An extraordinary tale of courage and adventure. Dean's story is inspirational.' - Levison Wood 'Dean's relentless determination to help those who face many mental health battles is incredible and admirable - he's a hero to many.' - Bear Grylls For readers of Ant Middleton, Jason Fox, Brian Wood, Bear Grylls and Billy Billingham comes the extraordinary, inspirational story of Special Boat Service soldier and adventurer Dean Stott. Everybody has heard the SAS motto that who dares wins, but special forces warrior Dean Stott also lives his life by another powerful mantra - that of the relentless pursuit of excellence. In 16 years of service, Dean rose to the top of Britain's fighting force, taking part of some of the most daring and dangerous operations in the war on terror, and then in the private security force, where missions included him singlehandedly evacuating the Canadian Embassy in Libya. But then, following a horrific parachuting accident, Dean's dream career was cut short, and his ethos was put to its toughest test. Just like the day when Dean's dad said that he could never make it as a soldier, Dean's doctors told him that he would never again perform at the elite level. To put it mildly, Dean disagreed, but even those that knew him were staggered by the mission that he set himself - the man who didn't own a bike would cycle the Pan American Highway, a 14,000 mile route that stretches from Argentina to Alaska, passing through some of the most dangerous countries in the world. A passionate mental health campaigner, Dean decided to up the stakes further by setting himself the task of raising a million pounds for charity. With two world records also in his sights, the stage was set for Dean to rediscover the tenacity, bravery, and downright doggedness that saw him rise to the top of the Special Forces. The final curveball arrived in the shape of a wedding invitation from his old friend Prince Harry - would he make it back in time for the royal wedding, or at all? Dean Stott is Relentless, and this is his story.
