Endurance Book Review:

The harrowing tale of British explorer Ernest Shackleton's 1914 attempt to reach the South Pole, one of the greatest adventure stories of the modern age. In August 1914, polar explorer Ernest Shackleton boarded the Endurance and set sail for Antarctica, where he planned to cross the last uncharted continent on foot. In January 1915, after battling its way through a thousand miles of pack ice and only a day's sail short of its destination, the Endurance became locked in an island of ice. Thus began the legendary ordeal of Shackleton and his crew of twenty-seven men. When their ship was finally crushed between two ice floes, they attempted a near-impossible journey over 850 miles of the South Atlantic's heaviest seas to the closest outpost of civilization. In Endurance, the definitive account of Ernest Shackleton's fateful trip, Alfred Lansing brilliantly narrates the harrowing and miraculous voyage that has defined heroism for the modern age.

Endurance is personal to everyone; it’s what we use to bring out our top athletic potential. Still, there are multitudes of versions to the definition of endurance. Some define it as running a 10K race while some define it as riding a bike for a century. Individuals strive to show their level of endurance by competing in worldwide events like racing in the Olympics, riding a bike in the Tour de France, or going 8 hours in the lava bath in Hawaii. They do all this to show their superb mental and physical control. Endurance provides us with the physical, mental, and chemical tools required to enable the body to maintain a constant speed over long distances. It is an expression of the aerobic system of the body. This book will base its knowledge upon the fact that aerobic muscle fibers burn fat for energy, which powers all the nerves and blood vessels associated with the particular muscle to come into action. Thus, training the aerobic system can, in effect, increase a person’s endurance allowing him/her to cover 5 miles in 40 minutes, when previously it took 45 minutes, at an average heart rate of 150. This particular feature of endurance is known as aerobic speed. While endurance increases our potential output, it does so without harming the body. It is one’s ability to improve his/her athleticism without sacrificing his health at the same time. If you look closely, you will notice that consciously or not, you spend most of your life increasing your endurance and longevity at something; whether it’s sports, puzzles, or everyday chores. This book will focus on improving your physical performance by training for endurance.

The Endurance of Frankenstein Book Review:

MARY SHELLEY's Frankenstein; or, The Modern Prometheus grew out of a parlor game and a nightmare vision. The story of the book's origin is a famous one, first told in the introduction Mary Shelley wrote for the 1831 edition of the novel. The two Shelleys, Byron, Mary's stepsister Claire Clairmont, and John William Polidori (Byron's physician) spent a "wet, ungenial summer in the Swiss Alps." Byron suggested that "each write a ghost story." If one is to trust Mary Shelley's account (and James Rieger has shown the untrustworthiness of its chronology and particulars), only she and "poor Polidori" took the contest seriously. The two "illustrious poets," according to her, "annoyed by the platitude of prose, speedily relinquished their uncongenial task." Polidori, too, is made to seem careless, unable to handle his story of a "skull-headed lady." Though Mary Shelley is just as deprecating when she speaks of her own "tiresome unlucky ghost story," she also suggests that its sources went deeper. Her truant muse became active as soon as she fastened on the "idea" of "making only a transcript of the grim terrors of my waking dream": "'I have found it! What terrified me will terrify others."' The twelve essays in this collection attest to the endurance of Mary Shelley's "waking dream." Appropriately, though less romantically, this book also grew out of a playful conversation at a party. When several of the contributors to this book discovered that they were all closet aficionados of Mary Shelley's novel, they decided that a book might be written in which each contributor-contestant might try to account for the persistent hold that Frankenstein continues to exercise on the popular imagination. Within a few months, two films--Warhol's Frankenstein and Mel Brooks's Young Frankenstein--and the Hall-Landau and Isherwood-Bachardy television versions of the novel appeared to remind us of our blunted purpose. These manifestations were an auspicious sign and resulted in the book Endurance of Frankenstein.

Endurance Book Review:

There is no time that endurance is not needed. However, too often for the believer endurance is simply coping, accepting, tolerating, and just getting by. What a misconception of Paul's words in Romans 8:35-37. Believers are more than conquerors. In John's writings he emphasizes the true Nike and it is not Michael Jordan. The true conqueror is Christ the King and the believer's endurance is to be modeled after Him. Hurting people, sinned-against people, and sinning people need to know and apply Godly endurance. The joy of enduring God's way is the privilege, blessing, and responsibility for all of God's people no matter their age or spiritual maturity.

Endurance Book Review:

The legendary tale of Ernest Shackleton's grueling Antarctic expedition, recounted in riveting first-person detail by the captain of HMS Endurance. You seriously mean to tell me that the ship is doomed?" asked Frank Worsley, commander of the Endurance, stuck impassably in Antarctic ice packs. "What the ice gets," replied Sir Ernest Shackleton, the expedition's unflappable leader, "the ice keeps." It did not, however, get the ship's twenty-five crew members, all of whom survived an eight-hundred-mile voyage across sea, land, and ice to South Georgia, the nearest inhabited island. First published in 1931, Endurance tells the full story of that doomed 1914-16 expedition and incredible rescue, as well as relating Worsley's further adventures fighting U-boats in the Great War, sailing the equally treacherous waters of the Arctic, and making one final (and successful) assault on the South Pole with Shackleton. It is a tale of unrelenting high adventure and a tribute to one of the most inspiring and courageous leaders of men in the history of exploration.

Endurance Book Review:

Green is back in Copper Downs. Purchased from her father in sunny Selistan when she was four years old, she was harshly raised to be a courtesan, companion, and bedmate of the Immortal Duke of Copper Downs. But Green rebelled. Green killed the Duke, and many others, and won her freedom. Yet she is still claimed by the gods and goddesses of her world, and they still require her service. Their demands are greater than any duke's could have been. Godslayers have come to the Stone Coast, magicians whose cult is dedicated to destroying the many gods of Green's world. In the turmoil following the Immortal Duke's murder, Green made a God out of her power and her memories. Now the gods turn to her to protect them from the Slayers. Jay Lake brings us an epic fantasy not "in the tradition of Tolkien," but, instead, sensual, ominous, shot through with the sweat of fear and the intoxication of power.
