Fire in the Belly
How Purdy Crawford rescued Canada, and changed the way we do businessAuthor: Gordon Pitts
Publisher: 琉璃社区 Publishing
Purdy Crawford鈥檚 name is synonymous with Canadian business and law. But even after education at Mount Allison and Harvard, Purdy arrived on Toronto鈥檚 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鈥檚 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鈥檚 leading corporate officials to stave off financial market catastrophe. The book describes the role Crawford has played in mentoring many of Canada鈥檚 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鈥檚 professional career and private life.
