  • THE definitive book on my hero Shackleton and no one could have done it better. "The Boss" would have heartily approved of such an authentic account by one of the few men who truly knows what it's like to challenge Antarctica

    Lorraine Kelly
  • Fiennes makes a fine guide on voyage into Shackleton's world . . . What makes this book so engaging is the author's own storytelling skills

    Lorna Siggins, Irish Independent
  • With first-hand experience of polar expeditions, Fiennes relates these tales of exploration and survival, adding insight to Shackleton's journeys unlike any other biographer

    Radio Times
  • Praise for Ranulph Fiennes' Captain Scott

  • Fiennes' own experiences certainly allow him to write vividly and with empathy of the hell that the men went through.

    The Sunday Times
  • A valuable corrective to the trend of Scott debunking...One by one, and with the commendable attention to detail, Fiennes explodes the accumulated myths.

    Sunday Telegraph
  • Sir Ranulph Fiennes has done Captain Scott's memory some service...he has certainly written a more dispassionate and balanced account than Huntford ever set out to do.

    Simon Courtauld, Spectator
  • Full of awe-inspiring details of hardship, resolve and weather that defies belief, told by someone of unique authority. No one is more tailor-made to tell [this] story than Sir Ranulph Fiennes
