This book was interesting and very detailed. What amazed me most is that governments continued to pursue oil as a primary means of energy when such disputes and turmoil was taking place. The Shar did a remarkable job of luring Europe and the USG (Nixon, Ford) into continued reliance on oil.

This is a phenomenal feat of survival and astonishing achievements, brilliantly told. Their mission to cross the Antarctic continent was abondoned for a new mission of survival by whatever means available. Nearly 500 days without touching land 28 men were forced to sacrifice total preparedness for speed while dining on cold dog meat and penguin. Amazed by the positive outlook on the team when in times of near death they talk of the immense beauty of the scenery surrounding them.
An incredible story that is recognised as the greatest survival story of all time.
If you like this book you'll also enjoy the Dig Tree.
this book provides the kind of bordem that makes you want to cap yourself. Fortunately it discusses such realistic situations as to how to negotiate with terrorists and stopping people from committing suicide, Cause I encounter these things everyday.
Basically you say 'i bet it must be really difficult not having anyone understand the problems that you are going through...' and thats the book.
Try not to fall asleep at the wheel.
