Description

E. P. Taylor was one of the greatest and most successful business figures of the 20th century.

After building an empire in the beer business in the '30s, Taylor went to Ottawa as one of the legendary "dollar-a-year men" during the Second World War. When the war ended, he turned his hand to putting together the biggest Canadian conglomerate of the time: the giant Argus Corporation. With his colleagues, Taylor controlled businesses worth hundred of millions of dollars--in groceries (Dominion Stores), farm machinery (Massey Harris), broadcasting (CFRB), building supplies, land development. For forty years, his name was synonymous with wealth and power in Canada.

Written in collaboration with Taylor himself during his Bahamian retirement, E.P. Taylor is the fascinating story of the creation of one of Canada' greatest business empires.
