Summary
Christopher Pyne's honest account of how a belief in the power of public service led him to pursue a career in politics, driven by the ambition of leaving a legacy for the next generation.

A Letter To My Children is Christopher Pyne's honest account of how a belief in the power of public service, inspired by his crusading ophthalmologist father, led him to pursue a career in politics, driven by the ambition of leaving a legacy for the next generation
