In his latest book Life Real Loud, Ryerson journalism associate professor Bill Reynolds follows the downward spiral of Canadian philanthropist and entrepreneur John Lefebvre.

Lefebvre, a lawyer by trade, founded Neteller, an online startup that processes payments between gamblers and the websites on which they play. Shortly after Neteller started making a name for itself in the gambling world, the Calgary native and marijuana enthusiast found himself in trouble with the FBI

Ahead of the book launch, Reynolds spoke with Ryersonian reporter Halla Imam about the Calgary native and marijuana enthusiast.

Life Real Loud hits bookstores next Wednesday.
