    One thought on “My Life as an Explorer”

    1. Amundsen endured to visit both poles, the most inhospitable places in this planet. Absolutely genius, one of the finest explorers ever lived! However, wasted half of his autobiography talking about an unscrupulous Italian named Nobile. If it is your first book on polar exploration, start with "the last place on earth" or "the last Viking". Then you are going to understand his autobiography.

    2. This book covers two subject areas: 1) the preparation for and execution of physically demanding and logistically complicated expeditions and 2) settling the score with Umberto Nobile over credit for completing an air traverse of the North Pole.The first subject was compelling. It's remarkable that at such a young age Amundsen knew what he wanted out of life, guiding his actions and decisions along a singular path. He also did a great job of calling out the mundane details needed to pull off a s [...]

    3. Невероятно мощная книга. Капитан Скотт просто не понял, с кем он соревнуется, - с терминатором, готовившимся для похода в полярные области с первого класса. Множество сильных людей пыталось покорить неизведанные земли, но эта небольшая книга дает понимание о сочетании физи [...]

    4. საბოლოოდ დავრწმუნდი რომ ავტობიოგრაფიების კითხვა არ მიყვარს დიდად. თუ თან სხვა მასალებსაც არ გაეცანი, ერთი მხრიდან გიწევს შეხედვა ყველაფერზე და მთლიან სურათს ვერ იღებ. რა დავიჯერო და რა არ [...]

    5. I wanted to learn more about Amundsen because he was such a successful polar explorer and yet is often overshadowed. Towards the end of his book he makes the distinction between "adventure" and "exploration" stating that " adventure is merely a bit of bad planning"

    6. I read the first Norwegian edition which contains details of the Nobile conflict. (It was toned down in later editions.) Fascinating.
