Castle Quay Books Announces New Title By Award-Winning Author David C Bentall 
Leaving a Legacy: Navigating Family Businesses Succession 
Foreword by Dr. Stephen L McClure 
TORONTO, Nov. 8, 2012 /CNW/ - Castle Quay Books is pleased to announce the 
release of its newest title by best-selling author David C. Bentall entitled 
Leaving a Legacy: Navigating Family Businesses Succession. 
David's first book The Company You Keep was awarded book of the year in two 
categories at the Canadian Word Guild Awards and has earned him a reputation 
as a gifted communicator. This new title covers the complicated and diverse 
world of family owned business, especially as it relates to succession 
planning and business management. Those who own a family business and those 
who work in one will recognize the challenges that reside in them, and will be 
greatly enriched by the wisdom and insights that David and several prominent 
entrepreneurial business families share. David skillfully marries his own 
experience with family business insights gleaned from 20 years of working with 
The Bentall Group and Dominion Construction, with best practices in this 
field, offering concrete solutions to the distinct challenges faced by all 
families in business. 
Family owned and family managed business as a family enterprise currently form 
the backbone of the Canadian and American economy, with families owning or 
controlling an estimated 80 per cent of all businesses. The fundamental 
principles applied to most businesses simply do not address the unique issues 
that confront modern business families. 
Practical examples are included from the following prominent entrepreneurial 
business families who share successful strategies for succeeding in family 
business: 
Peter Armstrong of Rocky Mountaineer, Victor Bachechi of Carlo Inc., Keith & 
Ryan Beedie of Beedie Development Group, Murray Berstein of Nixon Uniform 
Service and Medical Wear, Jay Bornstein of Bornstein Seafoods, DJ Devries of 
Newton Omniplex, Ashleigh Everett of Royal Canadian Properties, Karen & 
Charles Flavelle of Purdy's Chocolates, Ken Finch & Robert Foord of Kal Tire, 
Paul & Michael Higgins of Mother Parkers Tea and Coffee, Richard Ivey of Ivey 
Foundation, Greg Kuykendall of Kuykendall Hearing Aid Center, Peter Legge of 
Canada Wide Media, Stuart McLaughlin of Grouse Mountain Resorts, David McLean 
of The McLean Group, Jack McMillan of Nordstrom, Paul Melnuk of FTL Capital 
Partners, Dave Miller of Fix Auto, Larry Rosen of Harry Rosen, Greg Simpson of 
Simpson Seeds Inc., Jane Tidball of Thunderbird Show Park, Bill Yeargin
