This short account of Shackleton's expedition to the south pole is wonderfully told. It is truly amazing that he was able to adequately plan such a trip and bring all crew members back home when most everything went wrong.

This account stresses how valuable Shackleton's leadership skills were in the endeavor. The segments of these skills are itemized and discussed so readers can gain understanding for what made the man and the mission a success in spite of not meeting the goal.

The book is marred by having Chapter 7 appear twice. It is easy, obviously, with a kindle to move to the next chapter but it is jarring hence the loss of half a star. The photographs of the Shackleton expedition included at the end are awe inspiring. 4.5 stars ( )
