THE POWER OF WHY is an unconventional business book that looks at the urge to question as a source of innovation and success, rather than our obsession over working `smarter`. As chief correspondent for CBC News, Peter Mansbridge, says of the book, "This is a lot more than a business book, it's a life book. Just pick it up for ten minutes and you'll find yourself thinking in some exciting, new, and yes, innovative ways. "
Don't miss Amanda Lang's first broadcast interview with Peter Mansbridge on MANSBRIDGE ONE ON ONE, airing Saturday October 6 at 6:30 p.m. ET on CBC News Network, and Sunday October 7 at 12:30 p.m. (1 p.m. NT) on CBC-TV.
Amanda Lang is the senior business correspondent for CBC News, contributing regularly to CBC News` The National. She also co-host's THE LANG & O'LEARY EXCHANGE, appearing with "dragon" Kevin O'Leary.
