Publisher Description

Part memoir, part wander through a changing political landscape, part rant about Australia, the media, politics, and everything, Joe Hildebrand's new book, like the man himself, defies description.
Joe Hildebrand is the man you see on tV, the man you read in the Daily telegraph, the man you might follow on twitter (where he's rated as one of the top ten most influential tweeters in Australia), the man with an opinion on everything and anything, especially the dire straits of the current political landscape. But who is he? Where did he come from?In this, his first book, you can meet the man behind the man; his highly unconventional family and upbringing, his odd relatives, his less than stellar school career and then his arrival at University where he discovered a tribe of similar outcasts and freaks - student politicians. the lesson Joe learned as an aspiring student leader and newspaper editor would bring him girlfriends, win him elections, and prepare him for a life inside the den of evil itself; the Murdoch newspaper empire.Sit back, relax and laugh along with Joe as he reflects on his life and times - and tries to find some semblance of meaning in either.

An entertaining and engaging memoir. The short sharp story style is easy to read and flows well. It's also funny and Australian in its self deprecation.

The love, this book so much, and I have just finished reading it for third time!! :-) :-)

I would thoroughly recommend recommend it!! :-)

Joe has been kind enough to reply to some of my social media messages that I have sent to him! :-) You’re a Demon, the neighbour he had even been able to decipher my very poor, Siri dictation! :-) :-) no doubt you can add the time at the time and is no doubt you can tell by the very poor accuracy of Siri what’s writing this review add a person living with disability cerebral palsy quadriplegia
