From two of Australia’s most respected journalists comes the inside story of Kevin Rudd’s first term as Prime Minister. It is a tenure that will forever be defined by the Global Financial Crisis or, to use Rudd’s term, the shitstorm” that engulfed the nation and the world. Based on interviews with all of the key members of the government, this investigation reveals just how close Australia came to financial disaster, what Kevin Rudd and his colleagues did to avoid it, and how the serious mistakes they made along the way could threaten their reelection.
