Overview

North Pole Tenderfoot: A Rookie Goes on a North Pole Expedition Following in Admiral Peary's Footsteps by Doug Hall

Why would Doug Hall follow in Robert Peary's 1909 sled tracks to the North Pole, despite the grueling terrain and temperatures between 15 and 62 degrees below zero? His goal was to resurrect the spirit of Peary's journey in a world increasingly driven by instant gratification, short term business focus, and lack of sustained dedication to great causes. Peary succeeded where some 578 expeditions before him had failed. North Pole Tenderfoot is Doug's attempt to let the reader experience what is possible when one does what Peary did: think big.

This is another great book by Doug Hall. I am a fan of his "Jump Start..." business books. The book is a qucik and fun read. As you read through the book, you can see how he applies some of his business principles back to his trip. His conversational writing style makes you feel that he is there telling you his story. I have purchased about 20 copies for gifts to clients, family and friends. BUY THE BOOK.
