5.0 out of 5 stars Earnest Ernest, 27 Mar. 2011
In Shackleton's Footsteps: A Return to the Heart of the Antarctic is difficult to put down due to Henry Worsley's eye for detail and captivating writing style. His description of the unique ups and downs that the team experience heightens any existing respect and admiration for Shackelton's selfless leadership. Shackleton's diary, which is included throughout, allows us to access the past and gain a greater understanding of the awesome task these gentleman faced, 100 years ago and even in the modern day.

Worsley puts together some valuable reflective points that can be applied to everyday life, projects and anyone working with a team. I have given copies to some of my team at work as although faced with challenging times ahead, even if we don't reach our ultimate goal, we will do well to reflect on the wonderful experience we have had working as a team.

As Shackleton said:

- "There are good things in the world, but I am not sure that comradeship is not the best of them all."
