    Endurance ePUB ó Hardcover endurance kindle, Endurance PDFEPUBBeholdthe gentleman whose exploits crushed the last vestiges of manhood from my fragile psyche Psstdon’t mention this to my wife as she thinks she took care of this years ago Stranded for over a year in the most inhospitable climate on the face of the Earth literally one tiny step away from complete disaster due to starvation extreme weather or the ice flows on which they lived deciding to crack and deposit into the freezing depths below Holy persevering manliness Batman I was wincing shuddering and cringing just reading about this ordeal from the creaturey comfort of my toasty warm bed while maintaining a glass of wine within reaching distance Now I’m not a non fiction survival story expert but this has to be pretty close to the absolute

    Endurance ePUB ó Hardcover endurance kindle, Endurance PDFEPUBA captivating and inspiring tale of exploration human endurance and survivalIn 1914 Sir Ernest Shackleton and a crew of 27 men set sail for the South Atlantic on board a ship called the Endurance The expedition was to cross the Antarctic overland In October of 1915 the ship became trapped and crushed in Ice and the crew now half a continent away from their intended base became castaways in one of the most hostile regions in the world I have had this book on my TBR list for quite awhile and am so glad I finally got around to reading it I knew a little about the expedition due to the fact that one of the Crew members was an Irish Man called Tom Creen and I would have heard stories of

    Endurance ePUB ó Hardcover endurance kindle, Endurance PDFEPUBThere aren't many true life tales that live up to the hype There are always some details that make the story just a little less dramatic than in the made for TV movie Not this time While listening to this audiobook the thought that went through my head over and over again was Holy s The book starts with the Endurance trapped in the Antarctic ice being literally crushed to death The men abandon ship and then float on the ice pack for months When the pack breaks up they launch the lifeboats they salvaged from the Endurance and land on Elephant Island Then Shackleton sets off again in one of the lifeboats crossing the incredibly dangerous Drake Passage in nothing than a 22 foot open boat hoping to reach South Georgia to come back with a relief ship for the men left behind on Elephant IslandThe whole epic voyage takes over a year and every single day they were one wave misstep or blizzard away from being wiped out in an ins

    Endurance ePUB ó Hardcover endurance kindle, Endurance PDFEPUBI've read my share of leadership texts over the years – an occupational necessity for a while – and a name I came across than one was Ernest Shackleton Some sources reckoned him to be possibly the greatest leader that ever lived Well that’s some claim and it’s something I knew I'd have to look into sooner or later So when I came across this book originally published in 1959 the time had finally arrivedI knew that the man was an Antarctic explorer but precious little else I soon learned that after having twice previously failed to reach the South Pole in 1914 he set off with a 28 man crew hell bent on becoming the first person to cross the Antarctic continent If you don’t already know the story then I’ll not spoil it by giving a full run down of how it pl

    Endurance ePUB ó Hardcover endurance kindle, Endurance PDFEPUBWhat an incredible story This was my introduction to Shackleton and I am left reeling from the experience I chose Endurance to add symmetry to my list Earlier this year I read In the Kingdom of Ice Hampton Sides' excellent book about a doomed expedition to the North Pole and I thought I should balance the hemispheres by reading about a South Pole expedition Lansing's bo

    Endurance ePUB ó Hardcover endurance kindle, Endurance PDFEPUBI am almost unable to express my feelings about this amazing and unbelievable story I finished the last paragraph with tears running down my face and shaking my head in disbeliefIf this were a work of fiction you'd barely believe it but you'd credit Alfred Lansing for his story telling and imagination It's not fiction and you can't help but find yourself in a perpetual state of awe over these men and their optimism faith humor determination and endurance I felt quite unworthy on every pageShackleton and his men who quickly become as helpless and isolated from the outside world as if they were on another planet show you just as quickly the best that humans can be And Alfred Lansing brings t

    Endurance ePUB ó Hardcover endurance kindle, Endurance PDFEPUBAlthough this book was nonfiction it read like a thriller The author interviewed survivors of the ill fated 1914 expedition to Antarctica and also used some of their diaries as his source material I wanted to learn a little about this expedition after seeing a play in which Ernest Shackleton was a character It was actually a strange little musical and not particularly good but it managed to pique my interestShackleton was a flamboyant arrogant adventurer who was interested in fame glory and cash Not necessarily in that order Even when facing his probable death one of his chief concerns

    Endurance ePUB ó Hardcover endurance kindle, Endurance PDFEPUBWhile reading this novel I never ceased to feel amazed at the courage of the group of men who undertook a voyage into most unfriendly regions on our planet than 100 years ago and who dared to dare I feel thankful to those who travelled to the place where I'd never venture Film based on this novel with Kenneth Branagh is worth watching the novel is much terryfing though
