Synopses & Reviews
Peter Bentley recounts the exciting journey shared with his esteemed father, Leopold "Poldi" Bentley, and his uncle in the building of a major forest products company.
Bentley has a unique perspective on the rise and fall - and the subsequent reinvention - of western Canada's forest industry in all its complexity. He does not avoid controversy in his accounting of political shenanigans, nor does he shy away from the challenge of staring down the deep well of environmental issues. His views are those of a passionate citizen who, like his father before him, has given much of his life to the improvement of business and culture in British Columbia and Canada.
An unflinching leader and a respected philanthropist, Bentley describes a colourful business career punctuated by small failures and enormous success. These thoughts are his thanks to those who inspired him and an invaluable legacy to those who follow.
