    Description

    For the first time ever Roland Huntford presents each man's account of the race to the South Pole in their own words. In 1910, Robert Falcon Scott and Roald Amundsen set sail for Antarctica, each from his own starting point, and the epic race for the South Pole was on. 2010 marks the centenary of the last great race of terrestrial discovery. For the first time Scott's unedited diary entries run alongside those of Amundsen and Bjaaland, never before translated into English. Cutting through the welter of controversy, with the polar journey at the heart of the story Huntford weaves a narrative from the protagonists' explanations of their own fate. What emerges is a whole new understanding of what really happened on the ice.

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    Full of lessons to be applied in ones own journey

    Exceeded expectations.
    Bronson Pinchot brings life to the story.
    Full of lessons everybody in business and elsewhere should take note of.

    Great Book Horrible Naration

    I will never listen to another book narrated by Bronson Pinchot. He ruined it. He got lost on the accents, sometimes sounding like an Indian gas station owner instead of a Norwegian. And He should just read the book and not try to make a radio drama out of it. He added his own interpretation and conclusions thru his inflections - which is totally inappropriate. Oh and the 13-year old girl voice? I don’t know why he felt it necessary to apply accents. Just READ the book. He should apologize to Roland Huntford who wrote a great book. I am surprised Audibles let this go out like this.

    Great story. Monotone and boring narration

    I love the combination of Amundsen and Scott in a single book but Bronson Pinchot's narration was horribly boring in my opinion. It's very drab and monotone and I'm returning the book because of it. I'll just buy this in paper and read it.

    Day by day comparison shows a clear victor

    Very interesting to see how the two different expeditions approached navigating the harsh reality of the icy desert that is the polar Antarctic. Team work is essential and so is planning and skill and the side by side diary comparison clearly exposes this. They both accomplished great things but one at great cost - which begs the question of why. Even after over a hundred years later.

    Excellent History Adventure

    My Wife and I really liked this book. If you are interested in books on historic expeditions that rely heavily on real journal entries (primary source) then you will love this book. Also, I thought the narration was pretty great. I especially loved the accents.

    Gripping Adventure

    A very detailed and convincing argument of why Amundsen beat Scott to the South Pole and survived. Preparation beats pomp every time... I loved this book !

    Strongly suggest this book

    This was an amazingly enjoyable book to listen to. Although sparse, the added narrative was well thought out and engaging, and the diaries themselves were easy to follow. All three explorers who’s diaries are followed throughout the grand majority of the book are unique and bring their own aspects and personality to the listening experience. Each interprets the harsh polar conditions in different ways, which made this book for me a study of psychology just as much as it was a history of adventure and exploration. The narration was overall very well done, and although the accents did slip on occasion they were usually well executed and portrayed the characters speaking very well. Overall I loved the experience of listening to these amazingly hardy men, and I feel much more educated and knowledgeable about many things now that I have finished.

    Arete vs. Glorified Failure

    Wonderfully read. The pauses, the intervening sighs, the weariness, the wonder, perfectly captured. 'Luck' as understood differently by two men compares the realist vs fatalist approach. The summary answers the question, 'What are the conditions behind the outcome?' with sting and nostalgia.

    Great book on leadership and interesting insights.

    This was a great combination of the history surrounding the successful race to the South Pole, and the tragic outcome for the other team. Like in business, many of the things that drew the British team to their demise could have been avoided with open dialogue and a willingness to have a strong plan B. Great stuff
