The Magna Man


About the Book

One of the world’s most innovative business leaders shares his passion, wisdom and insight in this national bestseller

Frank Stronach came to Canada from Austria with a few dollars in his pocket, a lot of hustle and a hunger to succeed. In a few short years, the young Stronach went from washing dishes to starting up his own tool and die shop in a rented garage, working long hours and sleeping on a fold-up bed next to his machines. He would build that small shop into Magna International Inc., one of the biggest autoparts manufacturers in the world, with more than 118,000 employees in twenty-nine countries.

For the first time, and in his own words, Canada’s greatest industrialist tells the remarkable story of how he overcame hardship and heartache to climb to the top of a fiercely competitive industry. Along the way, he shares the blueprint for his company’s spectacular success: a unique business philosophy he created called Fair Enterprise. This can’t failformula has fuelled the company’s unstoppable growth and allowed Magna to share billions of dollars in profit with employees, managers, shareholders and society.

An inspirational story of business triumph and innovation, The Magna Man is also an invaluable guide for anyone eager to start a business, acquire the skills of a highly effective leader or make a difference in the world.
