<span>In&#160;</span><em>Know It All: Finding the Impossible Country</em><span>&#160;James Marsh tells of his evolution from a troubled childhood to a long career in Canadian publishing that culminated in the creation of The Canadian Encyclopedia &#8212; what one reviewer called &#8220;the intellectual equivalent of the building of the CPR.&#8221; Through friendships, curiosity, the insights of a charismatic psychiatrist, his passion for books, and the intimate encounters with the authors he met, he championed a diverse and inclusive view of Canada, which was used to draw the great minds of an impossible nation together in a common national enterprise. While exploring how memory works and how we learn to think of ourselves,&#160;</span><em>Know It All</em><span>&#160;offers insights into the intricacies of Canadian identity, the profession of book editors, and is the most comprehensive first-hand story about the creation of The Canadian Encyclopedia.</span>
