I enjoyed this book much more than I thought I would. It was very informative and the writing had a very nice flow. It reveals his personality as well as the pratical side of businesses, big or small.

Face of ice? Treliving's training as an RCMP constable. Don't let the bad guy see your fear. Colder than a polar bear's ass? The prairies where he grew up weren't always hospitable. But they did breed a kid who took a risk and opened a pizza shop without a pot to P in... and grew it to several billion dollars. I enjoyed this brisk and lighter read telling of good and bad decisions, with the clear refrain: trust your guts, find good partners, make a decision and go! Treliving's legacy will be big businesses.... sure. But the best Legacy will be the one, two or two hundred kids that become entrepreneurs making decisions Treliving-style with 'head, heart and gut'.

I'm a fan of "Dragons' Den" and like Jim Treliving (he's the only original Dragon left). He seems fair on the show but doesn't put up with any BS. So I was interested in reading his story.

Jim was born in a small town in Manitoba. While stationed in Edmonton as a Mountie, he became friends with Gus, who along with his brothers, had owned a couple Boston Pizza restaurants and was the franchisor for others in western Canada. At this point, he had no idea what pizza even was! Jim liked the restaurant lifestyle and saw the possibilities. He quit the RCMP and opened a Boston Pizza franchise in Penticton, BC. There he met George Melville, who ended up became his business partner (and still is). Jim and George eventually bought the chain. There are now Boston Pizza restaurants in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico. In addition, they also own Mr. Lube among other things.

This book is about how Jim makes decisions and the decisions he's made along the way. He makes decisions about work with his heart, about money with his head and about people with his gut ... so he's emotional about work, practical about money and instinctual about people. At the end of each chapter, there is a checklist for making the first life decision, for becoming a decision maker, making decisions about money, etc.

I enjoyed this book. I found it interesting and honest. I liked the writing style ... I could hear Jim's voice. What comes through is his passion, loyalty and strong work ethic.
