The Completely True History of Australia
How did Harold Holt really disappear? Was Alfred Deakin drunk when he suggested moving Australia's capital to rural NSW or did he just lose a bet? And remember that time called the Gold Rush when Australia's economy was totally reliant on mining? How things have changed!
If you've always wanted to know more about Australia's history but found the truth just a little bit too boring, this is the book for you.
Bringing together some of the country's least eminent historians - James Schloeffel (The Shovel), Charles Firth (The Chaser), Cameron Smith (The Chaser digital) – this is the definitive account of of Australia's past, from a unique white male perspective.
At 132 pages, it's the longest history book you'll ever read. And it's only $19.95 including postage.
