Summary
Bob Carr tells how on a whim, in his last days in opposition, he forced a Royal Commission to upend the state's police, describes what he learnt from Neville Wran and how as a kid, from a working class suburb, he was inspired by Gough Whitlam. He celebrates the Olympics - 'the world's best' - without the games. This 'anti-memoir' takes a critical look at the author: his failure to be ignited by sport (except on two notable occasions) and why in politics being true to yourself is good advice
Summary
Political memoirs are often worthy but boring. Not Bob Carr's. One of Australia's leading politicians tears up the rules. His account plunges into the unintended consequences of politics, the twists and turns, loaded with furious self-criticism.
