Innovation Nation: Canadian Leadership from Java to Jurassic Park

Innovation Nation

Canadians have quietly altered the face of the world economy with business models that have changed the way the world does everything. From developing Java and wireless e-mail to defining the specifications for XML, Canadians have sculpted, touched, researched, improved processes and blazed trails in the world's most innovative companies.

While fascinating and compelling, these stories are not well known either in Canada or around the globe. This sets the stage for Innovation Nation, a fascinating new book designed to cut through traditional Canadian modesty and provide a window into the fibre, minds and makeup of 30 Canadians whom the world needs to know.

"Originally it was going to be 15 Canadian entrepreneurs and businesspeople," Mr. Brody says. "We put a sixteenth chapter in, on giving back, featuring Jeff Skoll, of eBay, to talk about the importance of social entrepreneurship. We also wanted to inspire Canadians and put our money where our mouth was. We're donating all of our author profits on this book to Junior Achievement in Canada."
