5 stars
After reading other books by this author, I loved reading this book and finished it in one day. The true stories about Scott, Shakleton, Peary and Scott are gripping!
My favourite story was one about Shackleton. The first line of the book is - If you have a globe, spin it around. 
The book starts with an introduction of both the North and the South poles.
