As an alum of the Hurricane Island Outward Bound school, I was very interested to discover this book. The book uses case studies which I have always found to be a great learning tool. The content is very detailed (good), but as a result, the book can be a bit of a slow read at times (bad). The content is most relevant to outdoor leadership, but most of the lessons can certainly be applied in everyday situations.
I liked that this book does not contain any impractical graphs, lists, charts, etc typically found in leadership tomes. The content is well-presented and overall is a good read. Former students of Outward Bound should find this book especially interesting.
