The Bottom Line by Michael Contento

The Bottom Line is the book that tells you how to become successful in life regardless of education level or how much you've messed up in the past. It helps readers develop the elemental skills of business, leadership, and life.

Author Michael Contento knows it’s possible for them, and you, to become successful because his story is less likely than anyone’s. He didn’t go to a fancy school. In fact, he didn’t even finish high school. And yet, as the CEO of a fast-growing managed-services IT firm and a director on the national board of Big Brothers Big Sisters Canada, among many other ventures, he’s successful by any measure.

How did Michael go from being a problem for the boss, to running things for the boss, to being the boss, to owning the holding company that hired the boss? He followed a set of basic principles that can be used by anyone to achieve success.

At the heart of this method is the concept of D2:
Deliver simplicity, drive growth.

Once you’re done this book, D2 will guide every business interaction you have

Nothing is Everything by Simon Strantzas

Nothing is Everything is the masterful new collection from acclaimed Canadian author Simon Strantzas. With elegant craftsmanship Strantzas delicately weaves a disquieting narrative through eerie and unexpected landscapes, charting an uncanny course through territories both bleak and buoyant, while further cementing his reputation as one of the finest practitioners of strange tales.

“Simon Strantzas captures the creepiness of small town Ontario; there is something of Seth, of Alice Munro in his work, wonderfully tangled with the likes of Aickman and Jackson. Uncanny as a ventriloquist’s doll, but with a real, beating heart.”
–Camilla Grudova, author of The Doll’s Alphabet
