Summary

Sir Ernest Shackleton was one of the greatest explorers and leaders of men in the 20th Century. From 1914 to 1916, following the wreck of his ship Endurance and despite finding himself stranded 1200 miles from any form of communication and with no hope of rescue, he led all 27 of his men to safety. After spending several months on the pack-ice living on seals, dogs, and penguins, they embarked on an heroic 800-mile trip across the frigid South Atlantic - in little more than a rowboat. The authors of Shackletons Way, a Shackleton scholar and Wall Street Journal writer, have come together to present the explorer's timeless leadership skills � skills that can be learned by anyone of any generation. This recording is essential listening, not only for those ambitious for the top job but also for those who are fascinated by the derring-do exploits of a man of immense stature.

dreadful

Maybe I missed something obvious but while hoping for a Shackleton type adventure story I ended up with a be a better manager tutorial. The tutorial itself may be great but I was so dismayed I switched off
