About this audiobook

What do you do when someone tells you, “It can’t be done”?

This is the extraordinary story of three people — an explorer, an engineer and a statesman — who repeatedly proved critics and naysayers wrong.

Roald Amundsen — the Norwegian explorer

Isambard Kingdom Brunel — the greatest engineer the world has ever seen

Teddy Roosevelt — the cowboy turned statesman

Audacious Goals, Remarkable Results reveals the outsized risks and setbacks each faced in their quest to change the world.

Diving deeply into the triumphs that turned these everyday men into legendary champions, it takes you up close and personal to the hardships they encountered in bringing their greatest endeavors to life:

· Brunel’s Great Western Railway

· Amundsen’s quest for the Northwest Passage and the South Pole

· Roosevelt’s epic construction of the Panama Canal

"Bullets, blizzards, fires, and floods were all part of a day’s work."

With a stunning narrative read by the award-winning voice actor Dennis Kleinman, this book puts you in the middle of the fray and draws lessons that can be used today. Encompassing true events that changed the world, you’ll discover inspiration for your own ambition, valuable insight into present-day civilization, and effective strategies for success.
