Publisher's Summary

Trained Royal Marines sniper, world record breaker and extreme TV adventurer Aldo Kane is known for his ability to navigate and lead through challenging and pressured environments, whether it be abseiling into an erupting volcano in the Democratic Republic of Congo, rowing the Atlantic, getting locked in a bunker for 10 days with zero daylight, leading Steve Backshall into the jungle or being held at gunpoint....

In his debut audiobook, Lessons from the Edge, Aldo will inspire listeners with his jaw-dropping stories and show them how to survive and thrive through sheer strength of mind and sharp decision-making. It will reveal how this tough military man was able to cope with suddenly feeling worthless, how he overcame doors literally slamming in his face, how he came to realise that you can't wait for things to happen and instead how he rediscovered his identity and harnessed his emotions to his advantage to find determination, purpose and a renewed sense of belonging. And how, to use his own words, he became the captain of his own ship.

Aldo is a firm believer that with the right head game, however hard it feels, you can get through anything life throws at you. Lessons from the Edge will inspire listeners to find the spirit to do the things in life they've previously been too scared to tackle, build the courage to know that failure isn't the end and the knowledge that the impossible can be made possible.

An epic 'must listen'!

I've learned a lot about the planet and about how truly awesome some humans are. I want my boys to read this when they are teenagers. Highly recommend.

Inspiring story

Absolutely awesome book for those looking for some adventure, words of wisdom and inspiration.

Aldo manages to balance humility and his telling of stories of heroism perfectly. He is an exceptional man, and gives me the confidence that, leaving the military in the next few months, there is a life beyond.

Thank you for sharing your story. I can’t wait to hear more from you mate.
