Slow, predictable and generally uninspiring. Reviews suggested this book was good fun and a wholesome read - it was not.

If you buy this book to learn the history of the Eureka Stockade, then that is what you will get, and so much more. The audio performance does not match the oratory skills of the author. The accents are wrong and continually distract from the story. The story itself has been significantly embellished with additional content and again this distracts from the story. whilst you will learn the story, you could have learnt in a much shorter book.

Subtle, but engrossing

Great story, well read. A mystery/crime story with lots of twists and turns. Beautifully written really encapsulating the country and environment.

This was a very good book. I found it to be not only an interesting insight into a very accomplished Australian but also a great source of education. The personal story is well told and delivers a lovely outline of Malcolm Turnbull and his family. Some chapters were particularly educational - especially those dealing with Water, Communication and Energy policy. Having Malcolm narrate the book provided the tone, context, emotion and amplification necessary to get a truer understanding of the words. This book should become a classic very quickly.

Too long by far!

An interesting story, with many predictable twists and turns. However, the story could have been significantly shorter and still have been entertaining.
