Top international reviews
The first part is about the way two of Australia's politicians responded to the issue of broken promises. The second talks about Australian politics under the four components of what is meant by trust. (The four components come from an analysis of trust in business leadership and so are backed by academic research.)
My disappointment is probably part because I think the topic is so important; and so I wanted some big stuff dealt with and deep insights. The book is 80% or more recounting of what happened in particular incidents in Australian politics. The incidents chosen are relevant. However there is little analysis of them in relation to the theme, they are more illustrative.
There aren't 'solutions' offered, although it does end on a note of qualified optimism.
