Synopsis: Unlike other books on the subject, which are filled with dry incorporation rules or accounting practices, The Last Best Hope combines step-by-step information with the human side of business – “a blood sport every bit as dramatic as life and death itself.” Using the case histories of the many entrepreneurs he interviewed across Canada, McQueen lays out the methods that have succeeded for these self-starters and – even more importantly – shows how to avoid failure once a business has been established. The engaging text is filled with tips from the top, plus secrets of both success and failure as lived and learned by those who have been through the wars.
