Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage by Alfred Lansing (1959)
The against-all-odds survival tale of explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton and his 27-member crew is one of the most timeless leadership allegories out there.

His ability to motivate and inspire in the face of bitter cold and extreme deprivation has been fodder for thousands of business school case studies.
