Authors Bio, not available
'... it is Stuart who offers the most valuable historical record to date of the Rudd years, by returning to the first principles of political journalism and compiling a detailed inventory of the government's major achievements ... Stuart's book proved particularly refreshing as a synthesis of Rudd's style as well as substance.' --The Australian Literary Review '... A study of the rise and fall of Kevin Rudd? Already? Nicholas Stuart is certainly well qualified, having written Kevin Rudd: An Unauthorised Political Biography and What Goes Up: Behind the 2007 Election ... A timely political case-study that has immediacy and distance.' --The Age 'Nicholas Stuart has an amazing ability to deliver completed manuscripts about contemporary events in lightning-quick time ... Stuart has succeeded in delivering the most important aspect of his book: a quality assessment of the good, the bad and the ugly aspects of the Rudd government.' --Peter Van Onselen "The Weekend Australian "
