Overview

Marketplace Product

Paul Keating is widely credited as the chief architect of the most significant period of political and economic reform since Federation. Twenty years on there is still no autobiography or memoir, yet he is the supreme story- teller of politics.

This book of revelations fills the gaps. Kerry O’Brien, the consummate interviewer who knew all the players and lived the history, has spent many long hours with Keating, teasing out the stories, testing the memories and the assertions. What emerges is a treasure trove of anecdotes, insights, reflections and occasional admissions from one of the most loved and hated political leaders we have known.

This is as good as it gets-funny, sweeping, angry, imaginative, mischievous, with arrogance, a glimmer of humility and more than a touch of creative madness. Keating unplugged.

’…fantastically readable account of and by the man who made us as we are and will be.’ – Guy Rundle

‘…a masterclass in how to do politics.’ – Laurie Oakes

PJK still puts on the best show in town.’ – Alex Mitchell

’There is so much political wisdom stored in these pages.’ – Frank Bongiorno

And the last word to the man himself. ‘We all get carried out in the end, Kerry. The big question is what sort of a trail can you blaze, and with what sort of elan.’ – Paul Keating
