The Globe

A year-END roundup of the best business reads - Harvey Schachter

Excerpt: "[...] I also have, more traditionally, 10 noteworthy offerings from this year’s crop of business books for your holiday season reading: Executive coach Helen Antoniou takes us into the Molson family and their business ventures as she tells the story of her father-in-law Eric Molson. It’s a solid look at a solid guy, who believed in restrained, humble frayed-collar leadership – a wealthy man who made sure his clothes were well worn and others were given a chance to shine. It’s humane, inspirational, richly detailed, at times puts him in a less-than-favourable light and, at least for this reader, surprisingly gripping."
