Publisher Description

'The thinking man's action hero.' - The Times Magazine

'Inspiring survival stories from Aldo Kane, the man behind Tom Hardy, Bear Grylls and Steve Backshall expeditions.' - Trail Magazine

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 book, Lessons From The Edge, Aldo will inspire readers 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 readers 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.

Aldo is currently co-presenting The Bridge on Channel 4.

Lessons from the Edge

This book has been a brilliant listen. Aldo is a talented adventurer/explorer but is equally talented in bringing his experiences to life and to the reader. This part autobiography/part self help book is both entertaining and educational but most importantly motivational. Adventure is definitely a relative and scalable thing and it doesn’t matter if you just want to explore your local area, take up a new hobby or climb into a live volcano this book will help you take that first step. I would encourage anyone to read it as it is a very entertaining read; particularly Aldo’s colourful description of Jason Fox’s smile!
