Joe Hildebrand is the man you see on TV, the man you read in the Daily Telegraph, the man you might follow on Twitter (where he's rated as one of the Top Ten most influential Tweeters in Australia), the man with an opinion on everything and anything, especially the dire straits of the current political landscape. But who is he? Where did he come from?

In this, his first book, you can meet the man behind the man; his highly unconventional family and upbringing, his odd relatives, his less than stellar school career and then his arrival at University where he discovered a tribe of similar outcasts and freaks - student politicians. The lesson Joe learned as an aspiring student leader and newspaper editor would bring him girlfriends, win him elections, and prepare him for a life inside the den of evil itself; the Murdoch newspaper empire.

Sit back, relax and laugh along with Joe as he reflects on his life and times - and tries to find some semblance of meaning in either.

        For those who grew up with 'lefty' parents, where a little odd at school or lived through share house hell, this story will be familiar and charming. It's a really funny and honest read. Never has a man been so egotistical and self-deprecating at the same time. There are lots of fascinating political insights and it's also gut wrenchingly sad at points.Want to know which side of politics Joe sits on? Read this book.
