This was a very interesting and well-written book. I've been interested in the time period of the early 20th Century in general, and the development of modern scientific thought in particular. This book provided a two-for for me as it did a good job of illuminating two subject areas. Plus, the author got across the drama and human cost of dangerous exploration as well as the political and societal tensions of the time. The author was very generous with recognition of smaller and lesser known expeditions, as well as the contributions of relatively unknown characters involved. This was an informative and enjoyable read!
