About this deal

She has investigated the illicit rhino horn trade, capturing the stories of those with boots on the frontline fighting the poaching war, and tracked the most elusive and endangered species on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica, a place known as the most biodiversity intense location in the planet. It started really slow, was hard to get used to Foxy's narrating, but after few quick chapters and no distractions this book just gets better and better. A vivid, searing account of a life at war, that tells of some incredible moments of strength and courage. The adventure started with a 49-mile hike from Skagway to Lake Bennet, where the kayak journey stretched from Lake Bennett to the Bering Sea, across 48 days.

You don’t go in straight away giving it big licks then expect everyone to go, “I’ll do anything for him. He goes through relationships in a manner that at least seems as hectic as his life in the SBS, first one partner and then another and then another. You’ve got all these great people working for you, but it hasn’t gone quite right, so a load of people get sacked.She has been filming and exploring in extraordinary locations, from the wilds of Southern Africa to the pristine jungles of Costa Rica. Outside of his military career, some of Fox's bigger adventures include rowing across the Atlantic Ocean from Lagos, Portugal to Macuro, Venezuela in 2016 with four of his friends including Oliver Bailey.

Today you are most likely to find him gracing our television screens and giving us a taste of action and adventure around the world. A huge thank you to my most recent sponsors for your incredible support - ThruDark, Elliot Brown Watches you have been phenomenal! He had absolutely no support and from the persona he gives on tv you have absolutely no idea how hard he’s worked on himself to become or find that person in himself. From the pristine virgin rainforest of the Essequibo headwaters to the scarred and polluted landscapes near its mouth, the descent of this mighty river was both extraordinarily beautiful and utterly heartbreaking in equal measure. Unlike most veterans autobiographies, mostly about their missions and near death experiences (good as they are) and this started no differently, Jason is equally candid about PTSD and depression that will undoubtedly help other sufferers - he had to narrate it and he did - top bloke.And I was always like – this is an experience I’ve had – “There shouldn’t be high fives because that was awful, you were annoying and that was wrong, and we messed up there, and wasted a lot of money…” But no-ones interested in that. Having enjoyed SAS Who Dares Wins and seen Foxy reveal his issues mentally after being discharged from special services, enjoyed this read where he pulls from his military life and relates lessons he’s learned to “normal” life. Recently, a psychology student got in touch, having heard about my struggle with mental health problems. Be loyal“You do loads of command courses in the special forces and what really stands out for me is that you need to trust people.

He also fronted Meet the Drug Lords: Inside the Real Narcos, where he revisited some of his frontline experience in the battle against illicit drugs and came face to face with some of the types of gangster he used to be charged with targeting. Once I’d been lucky enough to get a job on SAS: Who Dares Wins, I decided to use the platform as an exercise in honesty.

For example, following on from a failed relationship, it’s sometimes vital we take a long look at our character flaws or our behaviour. You can tell the ex forces boys are dying to rip each other to bits and only disclose little snippets from what they got up to. From the bottom of my heart, thank you, Jason Fox, for this unforgettable, magnificent and utterly inspiring read. But by being honest I was able to at least right some of the wrongs I’d committed and eventually my day-to-day life became easier. Having accepted I was on the verge of suicide, I worked with friends to find a therapist who was suited to my personality and issues.
