Every Australian has formed their own opinion of Alan Bond, the high-flyer who stayed to face the music. Bond, the autobiography, is his chance to tell it how it really was.

In Alan Bond's long-awaited autobiography 'Bond' - written with bestselling author Rob Mundle - the famous Australian answers his critics and reflects on his mistakes as well as the outside influences that were working to bring him down. He deals with family tragedies - including the death of his daughter Susanne - and gives his own engaging account of how he went from working-class signwriter to national hero to jail inmate.

There are the first tentative forays into property development in the Perth suburbs while his family lived in a garage . . . the America's Cup win that stopped the nation ... his part in the creation of the Australian icon, the Boxing Kangaroo . . . his bankruptcy, trials, his imprisonment for over three-and-a-half years, as well as the subsequent rebuilding of his life. Along the way Alan Bond provides a telling snapshot of how business was done in the 1980s; of how the normal caution of banks and corporate leaders was tossed aside at the first smell of success and profits.
