50 People Who Stuffed up Australia Paperback
Our Great Southern Land started out just that - Great.
But what has happened after several centuries of white settlement and "development" and "progress"?
Has greatness been chipped away at and just who is responsible?
Enter Crikey correspondent Guy and Dexter who point the finger at 50 people and (sometimes entire family dynasties) who have basically stuffed it for the rest of us.
Instead of a roll call of dreary achievements, read on for 50 notable stuff ups - from Arthur Phillip and Ned Kelly to Janette Howard and Dame Edna.
Eddie McGuire and Andrew Bolt to Winston Churchill - they haveall played their part in making this land, well, not so great after all.
Wickedly funny and naughty this book will make you think about those that got in the way of greatness.
