When your life depends on it
Winner of multiple book and audiobook awards.
Endorsed by Sir Ranulph Fiennes, the greatest living Polar explorer.
When Your Life Depends on It is action-packed and fast-paced. Historically accurate, complete with jaw-dropping storytelling, this book explains the mind-set of the explorers who risked life and limb in the Antarctic to explore, discover and further the cause of science.
Their lives depended on mutual respect, resilience, camaraderie, loyalty, determination, the ability to resolve conflict and move forward, leadership and decision-making. All that can be summarised in one word – teamwork! Teamwork was the foundation on which Antarctic exploration was built.
Businesses large or small are no different (although obviously less frostbite risk).
Brad Borkan and David Hirzel demonstrate, in this thrill-a-minute read, how effective great periods in history can be in teaching teamwork and decisive resilience — skills as essential today as they were in the time of Shackleton.
