As he sticks to the more amusing characters its true that this is in no way a complete history of Australia, but its a worthwhile one. One that brings the mighty characters from Australian history as we were taught in school down to size and that in itself is a very Australian retelling.
Also could be considered offensive to the French, and thin skinned English, Dutch, Portuguese, Spanish, Scottish or Irish.
Be sure to read the footnotes. They are the finniest bits.
I read it and thought - this is just the stuff for those Brits who have missed the chance!
Australia is now just as much fun and continues to develop prosperity with personality and without civil unrest.
From the transported 'bad blood' to the present healthy mix of law-abiding laziness - we feel good about our country.
Its accurate and bloody funny...
Don't read this if you are looking for a serious history book, but do read it if you want an amusing take on Australian history.
