Purdy Crawford's name is synonymous with Canadian business and law. But even after education at Mount Allison and Harvard, Purdy arrived on Toronto's Bay Street as an outsider, the son of a coal miner from tiny Five Islands, Nova Scotia. So how did young Purdy ascend so quickly and so far to become one of Canada's top lawyers and best-known business mentors? In this biography of Purdy, bestselling business writer Gordon Pitts begins with the moment in 2007 when Crawford was enlisted by some of the country's leading corporate officials to stave off financial market catastrophe. The book describes the role Crawford has played in mentoring many of Canada's brightest economic thinkers, and his contribution to changing the way business was done in the boardroom, particularly in opening the door for women. Includes a photo insert of highlights from Purdy's professional career and private life.
