Praise for Greed, Inc.:
"...insightful and helpful"
Globe and Mail
"Rowland sheds light on the growth -- and the menace -- of the profit-driven modern large corporation"
Winnipeg Free Press
"...intruiging... Rowland has an interesting perspective, a smooth, thoughtful writing style and smarts"
Chris DeVito, CD
Syndicated (radio stations: CJSF, CiTR, CO-OP, CJAM)
"a wise book by a thinker and writer of great good sense and clarity"
Ronald Wright, author of A Short History of Progress
Praise for Galileo's Mistake:
"...fresh and compelling."
"Rowland's triumph is in examining Galileo's method over his facts and winning an argument that was lost more than 350 years ago. His book provides a fascinating contribution to a debate that is particularly germane today and is likely to be equally important 300 years from now."
"I recommend it strongly. Rowland tells the story well and with style and...backed by serious research and sensitivity to the issues. The history is embedded in a modern-day travelogue, interspersed with musings about the meaning of life."
The Globe and Mail
"Galileo's Mistake is a lofty and ambitious philosophical exploration, and
Rowland's considerable gifts as a writer make the book pleasurable and
captivating. Rowland skilfully weaves history, biography, science writing, and
philosophical overviews into the comfortable familiarity of a travel narrative."
"Galileo's Mistake has the lazy ease of a multi-course Italian
dinner, at once relaxing and enriching".
Robert Wiersema, Quill & Quire

from Thomas Allen Publishers Spring 2005 catalog:
Why is television so awful? Why do drug companies hide unfavourable test results? Why do automakers market unsafe cars? Why is our environment poisoning us? Why do we brutalize farm animals? Why is our food so unhealthy? Why is political discourse so debased? Why are we working sixty-hour weeks?
Wade Rowland's new book Greed, Inc.: Why Corporations Rule Our World and How We Let it Happen places the blame for much of what ails contemporary society at the doorstep of a single institution - the modern publicly-traded business corporation.
