Whether you find yourself on the right, the left, or in the middle, Juan Williams' compelling look at political discourse in our nation is certain to make you think. Williams does an excellent job of exposing politically correct language and ideology on both ends of the political spectrum. I did not always agree with his perspective, but I was reminded anew of the importance of open communication if our nation is ever going to deal with the issues we face.
I had never heard of this expedition or Ernest Shackleton, so I had no clue what I was in for. The synopsis made it sound interesting enough to try. I was not disappointed! The story is captivating; I couldn't stop listening for wanting to know what was going to happen next. The author did a top-notch job of weaving in excerpts from the men's diaries with narrative of the facts of the adventure. Simon Prebble has done a superb job of narration. His voice inflection and tone enhanced the story. I felt as if I were right there experiencing the harrowing journey along with Shackleton and his men. I would highly recommend this book to those interested in adventure or history.
