Publisher's Summary

From 1914 to 1916, Ernest Shackleton and his men survived the wreck of their ship Endurance, crushed in the Antarctic ice, stranded 1,200 miles from civilization with no means of communication and no hope for rescue. When the ice began to break up, Shackleton set out to save them all on his heroic 800-mile-trip across the frigid South Atlantic, in little more than a rowboat. Unlike similar polar expeditions, every man survived, not only in good health, but also in good spirits, all due to Shackleton's leadership. Now, Shackleton scholar Margot Morrell and Wall Street Journal writer Stephanie Capparell team up to present Shackleton's timeless leadership skills, skills that can be learned by anyone, to a new generation.

Wonderful analysis of Shackleton's leadership paired with great story

For years I have been a fan of Alfred Lansing's Endurance. Shackleton's Way is the perfect companion volume, providing an engaging retelling of Shackleton's life and the Endurance expedition while drawing out the lessons from his leadership that made him great. Current examples of Shackleton's style of leadership in the lives of contemporary leaders adds value to the lessons. Highly recommended.

Good Lessons in an Amazing Story

This book does an excellent job of telling the remarkable story of the Endurance's loss and the saving of its crew by Shakelton. The management lessons are deftly folded into the narrative without interrupting it.

well-performed telling of an epic adventure

this is the third time that I have listened to this audiobook and it remains as inspiring as the first time. I think that this is a great testament to human leadership and determination and the audiobook was well performed by the narrator.
