I read this as research for a play I was performing in called Terra Nova, which is the story of the competing Scott team who lost the race to the author's group. This is a fine book, which tells the story in detail and from several perspectives, so you get a real feel for the bigger picture. It's more than the journal entries made along the way, and would be highly informative to most people since they're likely more familiar with the Scott saga, due to its drama and fatal ending. This account is no less dramatic. Reading "Scott of the Antarctic" along with this book would be a great idea.
