My quick notes: Phew, what a book. You’ll find lessons on leadership, purpose, resilience, community and more. You’ll learn about nature and the world. This is a tremendous account of Ernest Shackleton and his crew’s journey of survival that began with the mission of being the first people to walk across Antarctica. What followed was a nearly two-year story of survival in one of the harshest environments on Earth. Tremendously inspiring and belief-inducing (in yourself to overcome challenges) book.
