Publisher's Summary

For listeners of Ant Middleton, Jason Fox and SAS: Who Dares Wins comes the extraordinary story of Special Forces soldier 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. 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 curve ball 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.

Absolutely incredible!

I almost feel a bit ashamed but I’d never heard of Dean until I saw him on the BBC recently talking about Prince Harry and then this came up in my recommendations. Not wanting to google and spoil the book I took a bit of a punt and and got this given how much I’ve enjoyed books from some of the other SF Operators. It was absolutely worth it. Deans story is amazing and he really does deliver some incredibly valuable lessons along the way. Now the challenge he embarks upon really resonates with me as I’m incredibly new to fitness and running but have signed up for a 30km run and have decided to do it for a higher cause than personal achievement also. I appreciate this isn’t in the same league as Dean’s undertaking but the lack of knowledge, previous training and experience is something I feel a strange familiarity with so I guess I’m a little biased towards everything in this book. Following the set backs, almost remorseless challenges and sheer curve balls he has thrown at him along the way and his explanation of how he deals with them has been amazing listening and will no doubt prove invaluable to me in my training. So for anyone who wants push themselves outside of their comfort zone be it just getting up and outside or taking their fitness/career/life to the next level, this is absolutely worth a read/listen. This will definitely be listened to again!

Compelling and inspirational.

In a time were the word inspirational is bounded about a lot, and some people are being called celebrities for appearing on some mindless tv show. It’s inspirational to hear a account of someone who has achieved so much with their life. Having met and seen dean in a working environment, he always seemed to be extremely switched on and very professional. And if I’m honest a bit scary. To hear his journey from 59 to record breaking hero is outstanding. And the insight into the elite mindset of the bloke is amazing. This is the type of person people should hold up as a role model. Good core values, family man and raising lots of money for worthy causes. Phil Roberts

What a story

The best Military Audible book by a Mile. From start to finish the Author made you part of his journey and parts of his journey are like my own in relation to Heads together. I do hope your next book is just as inspiring as this one. What a journey and what a strong family. Wish I had 1% of your mindset. Great book .
