50 Canadians Who Changed the World

So this is what it looks like, the most anticipated book of the year . . . at least around our house. Early on, I decided to make things harder for myself rather than easier -- and also more fun. I decided to include only those Canadians born after 1900. End result, more than two thirds of the transformative figures to be found in these pages are still alive and thriving. The book turns up this autumn from HarperCollins Canada.
