Tycoons: Canada’s Business History in Six Stories.
A business writer is essentially a story teller, and business history is a necessary part of the craft. The presentation tells the story of Canada’s business history from 1867 through the lives of a handful of tycoons who personify their eras. Gordon is the author of eight business books, retired Globe and Mail business writer and editor, and a business journalist on daily newspapers in Canada for 40 years.
