Ice.
Freezing Temperatures.
Blizzards.
Glory hunters.
Death.
Rescue.

Those are just some of the elements you’ll find in Alfred Lansing’s classic true story, “Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage.”

Shackleton was an explorer who wanted to reach the South Pole.
The crew of 27 men set sail with hopes of making history.
They made a mark on history but not because they reached their destination.
The ship became lodged in ice.  Large floes of ice crushed the vessel.
From there, the story is simply one of survival.
How did Shackleton keep them alive?
How did he lead through such an experience?

Amazingly, every man returned home alive.

Read this story.
Devour it.
Allow it to inspire and inform you.

We are capable of so much more.
Our ability to endure has untapped reservoirs.
No matter the situation you’re facing, you can lead through it.
There is hope.

“Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage” is a masterpiece.

I give it 5 stars out of a possible 5.

That’s book #21 for 2020.

31 more to go.

Leaders are readers.

If you want to be a better leader…be a reader.
