Its seldom that an author combines a great story with an instructive how to book, but the writing on both counts is superlative. Well researched and you enjoy the story so much you forget you are reading a leadership primer. The photos are fantastic and the introduction by Shackleton's granddaughter is appropriate and helps you relate to the book even more. Well done!
