A must for anyone interested in leadership. The book explains what he did, how he did it, and why. And the results. A true hero is dismantled and examined . Very well researched, you get the idea Morrell actually knew him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant - get part 2 now as well!, 11 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
excellent translation , which loses none of the Norwegian nuances . Very informative, Amundsen wrote well and the book flows along merrily. Get part 2 or suffer an unbearable cliffhanger (even if you know all about his South Pole adventure)

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, a must read., 11 Jan. 2014

Read this and find out how brilliant an explorer Shackleton was. He was a pioneer in difficult circumstances. Unecessary forlock-tugging to Scott potentially caused the failure to reach the pole. This book has all the details read it and enjoy.


Shackleton's Boat Journey
Shackleton's Boat Journey

Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant . Essential reading, 11 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Get it from the horses mouth, as it were. Shackleton gives a good account and praises Worsley. You can get so much from the account from one of the best captains ever and an absolutely superb navigator. The 2013 re-ceated copy cat trip had safety back up, and started fresh from Elephant Island, all healthy. They did not move base on South Georgia, or lose their rudder . No 14 months deprivation in pack ice for them, no. Read and be dumbstruck at the achievement of the Shackleton boat journey, Also read Lansing's 'Endurance' and Huntford's biography 'Shackleton' . Then you'll know what REAL MEN were!
