Drawing on extensive interviews with Turnbull, Crabb delves into his university exploits – which included co-authoring a musical with Bob Ellis – and his remarkable relationship with Kerry Packer, the man for whom he was first a prized attack dog and then a mortal enemy. She examines the extent to which Turnbull – colourful, aggressive, humorous and ruthless – has changed.
Crabb tells how he first lost, and then won back, the Liberal leadership, and explores the challenges that now face him today as the forward-looking leader of a conservative Coalition.
