"All in the Family, Inc. is the story of the whole experience of Canadian families and their businesses: the self-taught and those who have learned at their parents' knees. "All in the Family, Inc. examines the key issues facing modern family businesses, including disaster and divorce; recruiting and retaining outside talent; the problems of nepotism; and all the issues around succession, from easing the next generation in, to easing the older one out. Each chapter concludes with "Inherited Wisdom"— useful tips condensed from the experiences and insights of real families running real businesses.

Maritime author Allan Lynch has captured the voices and experiences of 22 families in business from across Canada and recounts their lessons learned, hard knocks taken and triumphs savoured.

From the high profiles of Alex Tilley, Donald Sobey, Harry Rosen and Sam "the Record Man" Sniderman, to less familiar names like Karen Flavelle, Jennifer Wood and Al Bryant, they all have one thing in common: they are trying to keep the family business together, without losing either the business or the family.
