JOHN DOYLE'S GAMBLE WITH MILLIONS: HEADS HE WINGS-TAILS YOU LOSE

BEFORE I MET John Christopher Doyle, the controversial mining promoter and close friend of Newfoundland Premier Joseph Smallwood, I thought of financial wizards as rather dull types, surrounded by computers and walnut-paneled boardrooms and lynx-eyed assistants and fussy accountants; stodgy people, really, for all their wealth, who lived in a world of ticker tape and dividends and stock warrants and other inscrutable phenomena.
