Over its twenty years with president and CEO Rick George at the helm, Suncor Energy went from being Canadas "unluckiest oil company" to a stock market darling and the second-largest publicly traded corporation in the country. Both a contrarian and an optimist, George often made multibillion-dollar moves despite deep skepticism within the industry. His $2.8-billion expansion into the oil sands ignited massive growth in Canadas most valuable, and controversial, natural resource. And his $19-billion merger with Petro-Canada in 2009 made Suncor a true global player in the rough, big-stakes game of international oil.All of this from a guy who grew up in a small Colorado ranching town to become one of Canadian businesss most transformative figures in a sector fraught with controversy.

This is the story of an optimist whose faith in people and innovation leads him to believe that we can overcome todays challenges and continue to advance.
