Description
Information
Walkley award winning ABC journalist, Kerry O'Brien, reflects on social and political upheavals he has witnessed and the personalities who have made history.

'Let me get the really big news out of the way up front…I have never dyed my hair. And it's not a wig. Welcome to the world of television, with pockets of depth, rare brilliant insight but always the threat of superficiality.' Thus begins Kerry O'Brien's much awaited memoir.

Kerry O'Brien has been speaking to Australia for over fifty years. His is the voice of every significant event in our recent history, of turmoils, upheavals, national and international crises and celebrations.

In a journey from the nuclear to the digital age and beyond, he has come face to face with the giants of his time - from Mandela to Thatcher, Obama, Bowie and Muhammad Ali. In Australia he has watched twelve prime ministers come and go and has called the powerful to account. Born days after the atom bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, O'Brien is the quintessential post-war baby.

In this ground-breaking account he reflects on the social and political upheavals he has witnessed, of lessons learned and lessons ignored, and the personalities who have made history all the while sharing some of his own story.
