339 pp, 9 1/4" H. "From the outside, Canadian Tire looked like the country's sanest company. But inside, it was a rollicking madhouse of sisters hating brothers, sons resenting fathers, wives despising wives, and some of the weirdest habits in captivity. The zany history of the Billes family and Canadian Tire is more than a story about money. It's about people, and a company that came to embody Canadian life - a story told by Ian Brown with insight and irreverent wit." Minor wrinkle at top of spine, remainder spray mark on botton of book. Dust jacket has very light edge wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, tiny remainder mark on bottom inside edge of front and rear panels.
