Thrilling news! Railroader by Howard Green is up for the National Business Book Award. I edited this book for Page Two, and the whole team couldn’t be prouder.
Here’s the citation:
Green provides a detailed account of a legendary and controversial business leader who played a pivotal role in the North American rail sector as CEO of four railways (including CN and CP) over several decades. He captures the personality of Harrison and his passion for railroads and enhancing their efficiency. In telling Harrison’s story, Green edges beyond corporate biography and into the clubby nature of Canadian business, the tight circles of influence, and the intersection of the public and private sectors.
