Reviews for ‘Not for the Faint-hearted’

  • Book Review by Frank Brennan: A mate’s take on Rudd’s call to arms 29 October 2017 - Originally published on Eureka St – 29 October 2017 Kevin Rudd is back. Last week he was blitzing the country with a whirlwind book tour, having flown in from New York where he continues his post-prime-ministerial life as President of the Asia Society. He is promoting volume one of his autobiography entitled Not for the Faint-hearted. […]
  • Book Review by Phillip Adams: The Rudd I respect 27 October 2017 - Originally published in The Weekend Australian Magazine – 28 October 2017 By Phillip Adams No one who saw that press conference, his family frozen in grief, can forget it. Smith, the member for the district, died one day, and we forgot about him the next. Not that a politician is ever remembered much after he […]
  • Book Review by Robert Manne: Kevin Rudd’s memoir lives up to its title 27 October 2017 - Originally published in the Sydney Morning Herald – 27 October 2017 By Robert Manne The first volume of Kevin Rudd’s almost always engrossing and sometimes surprisingly self-critical autobiography, which only takes us to Labor’s electoral victory in 2007, weighs in at 674 pages. Writing at this daunting length itself demonstrates some of Rudd’s strengths and […]

Now the Liberal Party – or indeed any other big political party – is probably as dysfunctional, but Rudd’s autobiography, released today, lays it all […]
  • Book Review by Troy Bramston: Rudd can’t decide if he’s Jekyll or Hyde 24 October 2017 - Originally published in The Australian – 24 October 2017 By Troy Bramston Kevin Rudd’s memoir reflects his kaleidoscopic personality. It seesaws between his often sunny image with characteristic self-deprecation and showcases his huge policy brain. But it also exposes the other side of Rudd, who assures us he is not bitter but systematically trashes his […]
