Description

The year was 1915. Equipment and food supplies were totally inadequate. After battling its way for six weeks through thousands of miles of pack ice and located only a day's sail from its destination, the Endurance became locked inside an island of ice. Yet Ernest Shackleton enabled all 27 of his men to survive for over a year on the ice-bound Antarctic seas - leadership without equal. This gripping account is based on contemporaneous diaries and interviews conducted by the author with these exceptional men.

The Best You'll Find

I truly enjoy reading the remarkable tales of unsung heroes in this world. Ernest Shackleton is one of them. Start to finish, this book kept me thinking, waiting, and imagining like few books ever have. Forget reality shows, forget mysteries... This book is a dose of "true reality and courage". Absolutely Fabulous!!

Get the Unabridged one (also on Audible)

This incredible story should be heard in all its detail. This version is good; the unabridged one is phenomenal.

I looked forward to my commute

This must be the most incredible human survival story ever. A great tale. Probably the best Audible book I've ever bought. I found myself unable to get out of the car because I wanted to get to the next "page". The actual hardcover book does have some wonderful pictures and maps which make the story even better, but the Audible version was great nonetheless.

Good Leadership Lessons

Another reviewer commented that this story was the Apollo 13 of its time. That is a perfect description. Beyond that, there are lots of leadership lessons one can take from "watching" Ernest Shackleton lead a group through a prolonged and difficult time. As the story is told, he maintained leadership and vision in extraordinary times.

The Apollo 13 Of Its Day

An extraordinary story, compellingly told. I found myself coming home from work and still listening in the driveway, riveted by the endless string of seemingly impossible challenges these brave explorers had to overcome. All of this without the benefit of radios, electricity and the like, to say nothing of a "Mission Control" to guide them. If you have any appreciation for the strength and nobility of the human spirit and will, you will enjoy this book.

Unbelievable

I had heard in general terms about this adventure gone bad. But the actual events as depicted through this book which is based on the actual diaries of the members and crew of the Endurance are truly remarkable. The narration is well done. Listening to this actually made me purchase other books on the subject.

Exciting Story about Shackleton and His Crew
