A number of people have asked recently about my book: a 1997 epic entitled Secrets of Success from Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies. Many of the examples are a little dated now, but the key lessons remain significant, so it's still a good read.
Since it's out of print now, you won't find it in stores. But copies are still available from Amazon.com and some of its used-book affiliates, so check it out. I have just posted a link to my book's page on Amazon. You'll find it at the bottom of the "Links" list, at right, and also at the very bottom of the main page. (It replaces the Google AdSense ads that no one ever clicked on anyway...)
