"Teams on the Edge is well written and easy to digest. Anyone in a leadership position, or anyone who is interested in building a team will find this worth the time it takes to read it." - The Chronicle Herald
From the Back Cover
TEAMS ON THE EDGE gives readers a front-row seat during challenging wilderness expeditions to remote locations in India, Mexico, Alaska, British Columbia, and the Yukon. Along the way, Shawn Stratton highlights the power of team dynamics and life-saving decision-making skills-skills that were put to good use as his group's navigated isolated mountain ranges, treacherous glaciers, and raging rivers.
Stratton offers a behind-the-scenes look into his time as a former senior instructor with the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). Juggling the roles of expedition leader, teacher, and medical care provider, he discovers that the secret to success lies in the strength of the teams around him.
TEAMS ON THE EDGE shares valuable leadership and team- building lessons that can be applied anywhere, from the wilderness to the workplace.

As I read the book, what I enjoyed most was seeing the behind-the-scenes world of the instructors. They do paperwork? They get nervous when things go wrong? I had NO idea! Shawn was always so composed...it was amazingly fun to read about everything from his perspective. I'll definitely be sending copies to family members.
It's also priced really well right now for Kindle...get on it!
As for the lessons he discovered... simple and pure.
It's a short read, but well worth the time and money for anyone involved in outdoor recreation or education.
