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.

I've been a fan of Jim Treliving ever since an old ex and I made our local Boston's Pizza into one of our most regular eateries, but I hadn't even heard his name yet. Later when I got into watching CBC's "Dragon's Den" on a regular basis I began to realize that the Jim Treliving on that show is the same man behind the restaurants. As he was easily one of the most interesting characters on the show, I delighted at a chance to read his book.

Luckily, I was not disappointed. The book traces his roots all the way from youth, through the Mounties, through the early days of merely trying to run a few stores. It carries on throughout Boston Pizza's explosive growth and covers in detail the mistakes and triumphs Jim made when choosing a partner, dealing with investors (including his own father), expanding into new markets, and living life away from work.

There were many juicy details and a lot of practical advice to take away. Best of all, the book comes off feeling really honest.

Jim's book was easy to read with great insight into his past. Decisions is based on common sense and urges action. A great read.

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'.

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.
