Relentless: The True Story of the Man Behind Rogers Communications (2008)
Edward Samuel Rogers
Businessman, founder and CEO of Rogers Communications
Unquestionably Ted Rogers was one of the greatest entrepreneurs in Canadian history. After borrowing $85,000 to buy an FM radio station in 1960 – before most people even had an FM radio – he built Canada’s largest communications company made up of radio and TV properties, wireless phones, cable-TV and high-speed Internet.
Best-seller Relentless, published mere weeks before Ted Rogers’ death on December 2, 2008, is filled with back-room deals, on-air battles, and the often outrageous exploits of an extraordinary entrepreneur. The book made headlines coast to coast when it was first published, and Rogers’ passing spawned tributes in newspapers, and on radio, TV, and the Internet, in Canada and around the world.
