From The Chronicle Herald, Sunday, February 22, 2009:

Book of Musts reaches No. 1 spot

The Nova Scotia Book of Musts by Allan Lynch was the No. 1 bestselling Nova Scotia title this past Christmas, and ranked in the top 20 travel titles in Canada, according to Booknet Canada.

“That puts it in the company of 1,000 Places to See Before You Die and Bill Bryson,” says publisher John MacIntyre. “It all comes down to writers and the quality of the content.”

“This is a must read for anyone involved in a family business. In language we can all understand, the author has picked the fertile brains of many Canadian business family members who have been more than willing to share their inherited wisdom. It is a delight to have a reference offering practical advice while concentrating on the positive aspects and possibilities of families in business in this country.”

       – Joan Shatilla, National Chair of the Canadian Association of Family Enterprise
