Decisions. Making the right ones, righting the wrong ones. Jim Treliving. 2012. ISBN 9781443411813. The author , one of the founding Dragons on Dragons Den (CBC) is also a founder of Boston Pizza, Mr Lube and several other businesses. His straight shooting style is evident on TV and in this book. When you read his book you feel that this is a very trustworthy guy who worked really hard to get to where he is. I would suggest that every Grade 10 student in Canada should read this book. We can not all be entrepreneurs, but we can all be upstanding contributing Canadians. Good read – perfect for a three hour flight. If you have a Canadian business and are thinking on expanding to the US – read his experience and heed the advice.
