Detailed Product Description
UK, 2005, 1st UK edition. 224 pp. New hardcover with Dust Jacket. Multiple Copies Available.

"If Scott had had this book he'd have either died laughing or got out alive."

A witty, entertaining and utterly unique look at the great explorers and the life-lessons we can draw from them. Exploration and explorers hold a constant fascination, with tales of heroism and the overcoming of great odds in the most inhospitable environments. The excitement over books on Shackleton and the abiding success of series such as Michael Palin's 'Pole to Pole', 'Around the World in 80 days' and 'Himalaya' demonstrate this amply. Add to this already compelling formula a touch of inspiration, in the lessons we can learn from the explorers in our everyday life and a spice of 'How to do Just about everything' in the bizarre and quirky lessons Mick Conefrey teaches us, such as how to cook an albatross or play football on an ice floe and the combination is unbeatable.

The book takes as its structure the stages of a typical expedition from planning to setting out, finding your goal and surviving safely to get home. Packed with fascinating anecdotes about explorers such as Shackleton, Scott, Livingstone and Stanley, the book also teaches us instructive lessons about fund-raising, team-building, dealing with confrontations, whilst also dealing with less everyday problems, such as digging a latrine in permafrost or facing down a charging polar bear. With its combination of the serious and the bizarre, the inspirational and the hilarious, Teacup in a Storm will be an engagingly irresistible proposition.

'Teacup in a Storm' is a unique book. Witty, irreverent, debunking, entertaining and inspirational all in one competitively priced and handy format package.
