by Margot Morrell and Stephanie Capparell [658.401 Mor]
Margot Morrell and Stephanie Capparell tell the true story of Ernest Shackleton's epic expedition through the Atlantic, including before and after his boat sank, and how he was able to get every one of his men home after two years of living on the ice. The book is all about his leadership and management techniques and includes sections on how people have implemented those techniques in modern day workplaces.
