Publishers Description: Malcolm Turnbull, Australias 29th Prime Minister, tells the remarkable story of his life in this lively political page-turner. When Malcolm Turnbull took over the nations top job there was a sense of excitement in Australia. Sky-high opinion polls followed as the political outsider with a successful business, legal and media career took charge. The infighting that dogged politics for the best part of a decade looked to be over. But a right-wing insurgency brutally cut down Turnbulls time in office after three years, leaving many Australians asking, Why Exceptionally candid and compelling, A Bigger Picture is the definitive narrative of Malcolm Turnbulls prime ministership. He describes how he legalised same-sex marriage, established Snowy Hydro 2.0, stood up to Donald Trump, rebooted Australias defence industry and many more achievements - remarkable in their pace, significance and that they were delivered in the teeth of so much opposition. But its far more than just politics. Turnbulls life has been filled with colourful characters and controversies, success and failure. From his early years in Sydney, growing up with a single father, to defending Spycatcher Peter Wright against the UK Government; the years representing Kerry Packer, leading the Republican Movement and making millions in business; and finally toppling Tony Abbott to become Prime Minister of Australia. For the first time he tells it all - in his own words. With revelatory insights on the workings of Canberra and the contentious events of Turnbulls life, A Bigger Picture explores the strengths and vulnerabilities of one of Australias best-known and dynamic business and political leaders. Lyrically written in highly readable and entertaining prose, this is a genuine page-turner thats not just for political junkies.
