As editor-in-chief of The Australian, Chris Mitchell ran the largest stable of journalists with the largest editorial budget in the country for over a dozen years.

In this humorous and revealing book, he gives first-hand details about the quirks and foibles of some of the most powerful politicians and media executives this country has produced.

A controversial figure in media throughout his quarter of a century as a daily editor, Mitchell still maintains close regular contact with past prime ministers, editors and media CEOs.

His book is informed by the sorts of judgements and thought processes that govern daily newspaper journalism at the highest level and the battles his papers fought to publish tough stories about the rich and the powerful.
