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. In Purdy Crawford, bestselling business writer Gordon Pitts tells Purdy's success story, beginning with the moment in 2007 when Crawford was enlisted by some of the country's leading corporate officials to stave off financial market catastrophe, and highlighting the role Crawford has played in mentoring several 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.
