Summary
Cliver Palmer, MP, leader of the Palmer United Party and big-spending billionaire: now here's the true story behind the larger-than-life Queenslander. Read the real story behind the larger-than-life Queenslander: MP, leader of the PUP and big-spending billionaire. He's bought a football team, helped create a political party, added robot dinosaurs to a luxury golf resort and is set to recreate the 'titanic'. But are these just fanciful splurges or something more calculated? the reality is that Clive Palmer uses his immense mining wealth (which some estimates put at over $6 billion) in a proactive (if sometimes eccentric) global way. His personal story is just as colourful and intriguing: Clive spent time as a child in China and writes poetry. He is well-known for attention-grabbing statements that send the media into a spin. Shortly after Clive was named a National Living treasure, he claimed that the CIA was secretly backing green groups in a bid to kill the Australian coal-mining industry. In true Clive fashion, in May 2012 he announced that he was building a luxury cruise liner - the 'titanic II' - and his political feuds are legendary. In this part business book, part political-insider profile and all rollicking tale, journalist Sean Parnell reveals what makes Clive Palmer tick. 'this brilliant debut biography goes a long way towards capturing the eccentric, enigmatic and downright hysterical character of Clive Palmer.' - the Australian
