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
