Contemporary Culture • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

Biographies of great leaders usually let the reader sort out the qualities worth emulating. Now, with the help of a narrator able to keep a good pace and provide a pleasant, conversational style, we can efficiently learn how a sea captain, using humor, generosity, intelligence, strength, and compassion, led his crew to survive an Antarctic ordeal that would have conquered most mortals. Richard Matthews subtly changes his tone as the sea story digresses into "leadership lessons for the modern," and we enjoy a little instruction. This audiobook's universal advice would be of value to everyone hoping to inspire and lead people, either in a family or a business.
