'This is what you have to remember about Savva's controversial book, The Road to Ruin she was onto this story early and she ran with it in her weekly column ... her account of the coup is both suspenseful and full of fascinating, granular detail.'--Brett Evans "Sydney Morning Herald "
'[W]ell researched and well written, with a sharp eye -- albeit with an occasional, serrated edge. Savva has written a book in which it is easy to be immersed. The narrative unfolds in a convincing flow, sourced directly from the words of many of the players: the bruised and battered; the disillusioned and disaffected; and ultimately in the triumphant voices of the Coalition plotters ... [A] compelling book that has established an indelible and influential benchmark for explaining the turbulent rise and tumultuous fall of the Abbott government.'--Stephen Loosley "Weekend Australian "
'It is a terrific book, but that's not the point here. The point is that Savva does not rely on anonymous sources for her examination of the relationship between Abbott and Peta Credlin. Her sources are named. They speak for themselves. We know who they are and where they worked and we know the terms and circumstances of their relationships with Abbott or Credlin.'--Michael Gawenda "The Age "
'Savva's inside knowledge and contacts within the Liberal Party (especially the party's moderate centre) means the planning leading up to the spill is a fascinating real-life political thriller ... a cracking political read.'--Christopher Sanders "Adelaide Review "
