Nominated for the 2006 National Business Book Award
How did an economically depressed region of Canada end up generating some of North America's most innovative business leaders? By quietly?but forcefully?making offers their competitors couldn?t refuse.
The Codfathers is a fascinating window into the secretive world of powerful families like the Irvings, the McCains, the Sobeys, and key business tycoons like Ron Joyce, who made Tim Hortons doughnuts into a Canadian icon. It's a story of a uniquely Maritime brand of success based on traditional values, like dogged resilience, understated aggressiveness and?when necessary?uniquely colourful language!

Praise for The Codfathers:
"...wonderful pen portraits, conveying both idiosyncratic charm and the swashbuckling personalities of this close-knit and unusual world." - The Globe and Mail
