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.

The Positive Motivational Insights

From beginning to end Dean Stott’s storytelling is exceptional. Using his own voice brought everything together masterfully knitting the boy, the soldier, the man and the thinker into focus. Positivity, insights on thought processes, people skills and “don’t panic” philosophy.

Excellent book, well with the listen!

This book is real, I always appreciate when the author reads their own book. This one is full of entertaining stories that teach valuable life lessons. There are too many to mention just one. you have to read it yourself!

Solid but too general

it was inspiring but it was too General. I really loved his attitude and what he did but prefer meat and more in-depth stories. Is Broad brush approach left me feeling empty. I think he's got a great life I just wanted to see more of it in the pages.

Don't do yourself a disservice and miss this.

Such an amazing story of an extraordinary human being. Never once was I bored or did I find my mind wondering. The fact it's actually him narrating gives you a good look at his personality and who he is as a man. Competitive, thorough, funny, kind, humble, tough and most of all....Relentless.

Not for me

This book had great reviews though I've come to realise with alot of army books that their comrades tend to review highly out of support. I found this a monotone drone in narration terms and maybe because of this was never gripped by the story. Waste of credit for me.

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!

an ok listen

not a bad listen but seemed to skim over what could be really good story. somewhere between a military story and an extreme athelete. Narration was a bit jumpy and sounded like bits edited in.

bought the book and was worried when I then read some poor reviews but there was no need to be concerned. What a listen started listening while drive and didn't want to stop listening when I reached my destination. First class

Captivating story

Really interesting insight into Dean’s adventures and found it really enjoyable that the author he narrated his own story to add the colour that dramatic situations need. Would recommend.

Best book I’ve ever read. In fact the only book I’ve ever read in 10 years.

The Special Forces aspect of this book is what captured my attention. However the rest of the story and recount of experiences that I read through kept me more engaged than I’ve been in movies.

You’re a hero Dean and a Role-model for many. Good on you champ. I never give enough of a shit to leave reviews on anything but you deserve some serious Kudos mate. Legend.
