It is amazing how these men in the book work together to survive. Everything seems to be done efficiently with immense effort. It is not to say that there was not some discouragement in some of the men. But, overall Shackleton and his crew seemed to do the impossible. As the time went on the crew continued to work well together showing the strength of their unity. The motivation was survival. This book shows that every person on the boat is needed to contribute in order for survival. This type of unity can be shown in everyday life. Many careers and activities emphasize the importance of a team effort. Another example of team unity is the military, in life or death situations the proud members of the military rely on each other to survive. In any career it is important to learn how to work well with your colleagues for things to go smoothly. Sports teams need a team effort to reach their goals of winning. Shackleton and his crew provide an excellent example of what working together efficiently can accomplish.
