It is quite remarkable that three self-described nobodies took it upon themselves to harangue and cajole some of the most powerful people in this country - politicians, star athletes, captains of industry - into giving them not only their time but a revealing look at their lives.(Grant Surridge)
In Kickstart, Herman, Matthews and Feindel ... have produced an interesting biographical work that has the potential to encourage and inspire anyone who reads it.(Val Ken Lem)
In 2005, recent graduates Alex Herman, Paul Matthews, and Andrew Feindel realized they weren’t entirely sure where they were going in life. Then they had an idea. Over the next two years, they interviewed 70 well-known Canadians and asked them how they got started. The answers they found were not always what they expected.
Kickstart profiles over 30 prominent Canadians, including professional athletes (former CFL star Norman Kwong), TV personalities (Valerie Pringle), Native leaders (Matthew Coon Come), and former prime ministers (Brian Mulroney). Their collective wisdom, offered in their own words, just might help readers "kickstart" their own lives and careers.
Alexander Herman studied at Trinity College Dublin and McGill University. His writing has appeared in both print and online publications. He lives in Montreal.
Paul Matthews studied English Literature at Oxford University. His writing has appeared in Toronto Life, Maisonneuve, and the Globe and Mail, and he has directed three short films.
