The Book of Paul: The Wit and Wisdom of Paul Keating

Black Inc.
Free sample

Presenting the one and only Mr Paul Keating – at his straight-shooting, scumbag-calling, merciless best.

Paul lets rip – on John Howard: “The little desiccated coconut is under pressure and he is attacking anything he can get his hands on.”

On Peter Costello: “The thing about poor old Costello is he is all tip and no iceberg.”

On John Hewson: “[His performance] is like being flogged with a warm lettuce.”

On Andrew Peacock: “...what we have here is an intellectual rust bucket.”

On Wilson Tuckey: “...you stupid foul-mouthed grub.”

On Tony Abbott: “If Tony Abbott ends up the prime minister of Australia, you’ve got to say, God help us.”

And that’s just a taste.
