It is a case study of a failed working relationship that exposes the petty nature of a person in authority who was motivated by ego and self-interest.
HINDSIGHT presents the insider's story of how the author managed to survive numerous attempts to have him fired. Situations were repeatedly manipulated by the Chairman in order to discredit him. Eventually the Chairman's attempts to have the author dismissed escalated to an obsession that bordered on the irrational.
An obsession so bizarre that it led to an unprecedented joint sitting of the Cairns City Council and the Cairns Harbour Board with the sole purpose of publicly humiliating the author and providing grounds for his dismissal.
HINDSIGHT provides a revealing insight into the character of the Chairman from the author's perspective and relates how the conflict between the two polarized personalities played out.
