I enjoyed Eaton's. Very well researched. Much of the material has come from earlier published books on the company, and additional material concerning the bankruptcy of Canada's Department Store. I served on the board for Timothy Eaton Memorial Church and wrote on the church in 1988. The Eaton family and company - so I do know quite a bit about this illustrious Eaton's, and the family Eaton. When the company faltered many were quick to blame the family. I think our society changed and we need to reflect that most of the major stores , such as- J.L. Hudson's, Marshall Fields, Gimbals, Kaufmanns, Bullocks, Woodward's, and Robert Simpson's are all gone too. This book is Canadian history.
