Ernest Shackleton by George Plimpton( Book )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 527 libraries worldwide
Every one of his Antarctic expeditions ended in failure. His life "off the ice" was a series of failed get-rich-quick schemes. And yet the name of Sir Ernest Shackleton (1874-1922) remains a byword for charismatic leadership, raw courage, and endurance in the face of overwhelming odds. Perhaps the greatest hero of the heroic age of polar exploration, Shackleton's crowning achievement was to bring all 28 of his men home safely after their ship was crushed in pack ice in 1915 -- an epic journey capped by an 800-mile small-boat voyage through some of the planet's roughest waters. In Ernest Shackleton, writer and media personality George Plimpton not only tells Shackleton's story, but recounts his own recent adventures following Shackleton's footsteps through the bleak, beautiful seas and islands at the bottom of the world

What is that quality - we'll call it the X Factor - that all winners, from famous athletes to successful CEOs, seem to possess? Plimpton sets out to find it
