Product Description

Review

"It is, quite simply, the best Canadian business book that I have read in many years." --The Vancouver Sun

"Jacquie McNish is an engaging writer--.The Big Score reads like a thriller." --The Globe and Mail

From the Inside Flap

From the windswept Labrador coast, where the massive nickel deposit was discovered, to the boardrooms of Singapore, Toronto, and Vancouver where the giant poker game for Diamond Fields was played out, the story behind Voisey's Bay has enormous economic significance for Canada and international financial markets.
One of the most intriguing elements was the takeover battle for Diamond Fields that pitted the conservative management team at the world's largest nickel company, Inco Ltd., against free-wheeling stock promoter Robert Friedland.
Also playing key roles in the race for Voisey's Bay were managers from the Bronfman-controlled Edper group, prominent Wall Street and Bay Street investment houses, and leading mutual funds.

Format: Hardcover
Tremendous read for anybody who has an interest in this sector, or for that matter good business books. Good insights on the tactics used in making a deal for a world class deposit (at least in a seller's market). I started yesterday morning and couldn't put it down all day. My wife did make me walk the dog, and I took a few trips to frig, but was so engrossed I finished it all yesterday. That's saying something because I usually only finish about a fourth of the books I start.

I was lucky enough to work on the Voisey's Bay discovery. Jacquie interviewed almost all of the players; she did did an excellent job of catching the excitement we all felt in Labrador during 1994-1995. Her book tends to confirm many "rumors" too.

Although it starts out a bit slow, it is a well written and , for the most part, accurate. I worked at INCO and was involved in the early stages of the acquisition and can say that the description of events and personalities was very accurate.

A fabulously well written story about Robert Friedland and his involvement with the Voisey Bay discovery. Ms McNish does a beautiful job with character development and analogies. I simply couldn't put it down.

Fascinating book. I knew nothing about Newfouldland/Labrador or penny stocks but the characters, the land and all the business dealings fascinated me. I couldn't believe this was non-fiction. A must read.
