I’ve been sitting on this news for a while, but I want to announce I’ve signed a deal with Key Porter Books for my third book project, this one based on the Going for the Green golf and business series that I developed while at the National Post.
The book will see me tee it up for some golf and frank conversation at several of the best courses in the world with numerous key business leaders and politicians from across the country including Jim Balsillie of Research in Motion; Frank McKenna; Eugene Melnyk, owner of the Senators and chair of Biovail; Norm Keevil, chair at Teck Cominco; Raymond Royer, CEO of Domtar; Jim Kinnear at Pengrowth, and others. It is tentatively called “Going for the Green: Canada’s Leaders on the Links.”
The popular series of columns that the book will take its concept from initially appeared in the Financial Post for three years starting in 2002. But the book version will have all new material, and will be greatly expanded from the newspaper columns. It will appear in Spring 2008.
I’ll keep you posted as this one develops — but it’ll be interesting to see the country through its great golf courses once again. You can be assured I’ll give my G4G readers some glimpses along the way.
