Offering a frank analysis of the way forward for the Australian Liberal Party, this argument draws lessons from the dying days of the Howard Government, presenting its leader’s views on his contemporaries, including Kevin Rudd, Peter Costello, Julia Gillard, and Malcolm Turnbull. Examining the values and instincts that drive the party, this analysis also proposes policies that it should adopt. Relating the often humorous story of the author’s own political development, this record describes the truth about politicians' lives, the author’s days from hell,” insider moments from the halls of power, and how a would-be priest believed he had fathered an unknown son. Outlining a state of play for the Liberal Party, this investigation cements its leader’s reputation as one of the organization’s most interesting thinkers and fearless advocates.

Tony Abbott is the leader of the Australian Liberal Party and the member for Warringah, New South Wales, in the House of Representatives. He is the former minister for health and aging in the Howard government and leader of the House of Representatives in the Australian Federal Parliament.

"This is a genuine attempt to reassess Liberalism in contemporary Australia from the point of view of a vigorous, genuine social conservative who demonstrates an understanding of politics as a contest of ideas, not just of wills and sound bites."  —Age
