"Men wanted for hazardous journey. Low wages, bitter cold, long hours of complete darkness. Safe return doubtful. Honour and recognition in event of success." These famous lines - honoured as one of advertising's 100 most influental ads ever - helped to get together the team for the legendary adventure on which Dennis Perkins bases his advice.

In another interesting book about the expeditions to the south pole one can find this interesting description about the man in question (translated from german):
"Shackleton had the astonishing gift of making the right decisions fast, thus to prevent desaster. His greatness as an explorer must be attributed mainly to his intuition. The success of his expeditions was important to him, but he alsways put the safety and health of those who served him first. The fact that he never lost a man, may well be seen as his biggest success."

This book is a great read in that it distills leadership lessons from the example of one of the most inspiring leaders in history: Sir Ernest Shakleton, the man behind the antarctic expedition. Dennis Perkins lines out ten leadership lessons that are vital for success. You can get a grasp of the essence of the book just by reading the table of contents. The lessons the authors extract from Shackleton's example sound surprisingly modern and up-to-date. For example, you might have expected the leader of an antarctic expedition in those times to be very authoritative to secure the success of the journey. Quite the contrary...

Lesson six, for example, is named "Core team values - Minimize status differences and insist on courtesy and mutual resepect.

This is simply one of the finest, most fascinating, and most instructive leadership books I have ever read. Dr. Perkins and his co-authors have succeeded in clarifying the universal leadership principles and practices as they exist in the real world. Using the incredible true story of Shackleton's Antarctic Expedition as backdrop, and interweaving modern business examples to further illustrate the critical leadership lessons, Dr. Perkins has captured the heart, soul, and guts of leadership for the modern leader. Rather than stopping there, he also gives us the benefit of leadership lessons learned through his own intense experiences "leading at the edge" as a Marine Corps Infantry Officer in Vietnam, and as an organizational leadership consultant. It doesn't get any better than this extremely well-written work. If you, like me, are tired of the "leadership cookbooks" which crowd the bookstore shelves, search this one out. Read it. Discuss it with your family and your colleagues, and truly grow from the experience. The lessons are powerful, the stories are inspiring and instructive, and they work at the level of both metaphor and real-world example of what is possible in any organization when authentic leadership is present. Sean M. Georges, JD, LLM, is a former Marine Corps Officer and now serves as Vice President, Human Resources for a publicly-traded corporation.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and have felt truly and soundly coached by its insights presented as both historical and present day challenges. Perkins has been able to merge "The Edge" with "The Zone": providing soundly positive insights into adversity and assuming the role of a corporate coach. In reading this book, I felt as if I were an athlete being intelligently guided from the sidelines by the leader who has been there before. It has provided me of the kind of coaching I imagine only top-flight athletes receive.
It doesn't take long to realize that Perkins is one of those rare Zen masters who has been there and back again, and can relate large-scale adversity with commercial necessity.
I recommend this to all those who try to constantly improve their game on and off the court ..., and in the business world.

This is a good new business book that posits that today's businesspeople can learn from the leadership example of Sir Ernest Shackleton as displayed during his famous 1914-1916 Endurance expedition. The author takes lessons from Shackleton's experience, his own experiences as a Marine Corps officer in Vietnam, and from the business world, and contrasts them with examples from unsuccessul expeditions and businesses. He and his coauthors then finish up with a series of cases from the real world that illuminate the thesis, especially the tragic Malden Mills fire, in which Aaron Feuerstein was able to show truly Shackleton-like leadership characteristics and care for his employees. Not only will businesspeople learn valuable lessons in leadership from this book, but it can serve as a useful introduction to Shackleton's adventures.

Perkins' book provides a unique and fascinating angle on a subject of pivotal concern. Ernest Shackleton's remarkable antarctic survival saga can, ultimately, only be understood as evidence of outstanding leadership abilities. The book examines Shackleton's actions and decisions and extracts 10 key leadership lessons that can be applied by anyone faced with the challenge of leading and influencing others in these turbulent times. I highly recommend it!
