From #1 bestselling authors Peter Mansbridge and Mark Bulgutch comes How Canada Works – The People Who Make Our Nation Thrive (Simon & Schuster Canada), a new book of first-person stories about the unique people and professions that make Canada work. In this latest collection of personal stories, Peter Mansbridge and former CBC producer Mark Bulgutch shine a light on the everyday jobs that keep our nation running and the inspiring people who perform them with empathy and kindness. Though Canada is still very much a work in progress, this enlightening book celebrates how we are greater than the sum of our parts by championing the people that make our country great.
