250 indexed pages. The 2010 federal election campaign had more twists, conspiracies and betrayals than a ripping political thriller. Confessions of a Faceless Man is the day-by-day account of the campaign by one of Labor's 'faceless men'. Paul Howes, head of the Australian Workers' Union, was accused of assassinating Kevin Rudd and installing Gillard in the top job - the King is dead; long live the Queen. Howes writes openly about his role in the leadership coup and reveals his experience inside Labor's campaign. In an unashamedly partisan and amusing account, Confessions of a Faceless Man chronicles the highs and lows, the stuff-ups, the leaks and the nuts and bolts of a modern Labor election campaign. This is Howes' first book - an unvarnished, brutally honest, at times laugh-out-loud account of how Labor won 2010. Paul Howes is the National Secretary of the Australian Workers' Union and the Vice President of the Australian Council of Trade Unions. He is also a member of the National Executive of the Australian Labor Party and a member of the Executive Committee of the International Metalworkers' Federation representing the Asia-Pacific region. There is a name in the inside front cover.

Australia Hardie Grant Books 2005 1740662296 / 9781740662291 Soft Cover Good 12mo 
xi, 194 pages including illustrations. This is a tale of adventure, courage, and triumphs, but most importantly, it is an inspiring story about embracing life from a man who almost lost his. Warren Macdonald, a fit and experienced hiker, set out to make the gruelling climb to the top of Australia's spectacular Mount Bowen. But what had begun as a two-day adventure suddenly turned into a nightmare when Mac Donald found himself lying in a creek bed, both his legs pinned by a giant boulder. While his companion made the solitary eight-hour journey to find help, the trapped hiker fought to stay alive. But this was only the beginning. A Test of Will has the suspense of a mystery, the pacing of a thriller, and the intimacy of the best inspirational literature. A gifted storyteller, Mac Donald captures the terror and high drama of his hours alone in the wilderness. He also writes eloquently about his life both before and after the accident: his training as an adventure tour guide and his vow to continue his life in the outdoors even after both his legs are amputated. In 2003, Mac Donald became the first doubt above-knee amputee to reach the summit of Africa's tallest peak, Mt Kilimanjaro. Pages are tanning.
