This book is the account of the Qantas story that every airline passenger needs to read: the full and frank history of Australia's national airline. It takes you into the boardroom, where golden parachutes are signed off, and onto the hangar floor, where engineers battle accounting cuts to keep planes flying safely. It takes you back to the foundation of the airline to disprove the line that Qantas never crashes. This is the warts and all history the Qantas PR department does not want you to read ... but you can bet they'll be reading it too!
About the Author
Matthew Benns is a senior journalist with The Sun-Herald and has written exclusive stories on the mining industry. He is also the author of a number of books including The Men Who Killed Qantas for Random House. Dirty Money is a sequel in the same mould. Using impeccable sources within the mining industry and charitable watchdog groups, it will dramatically put the pollution and financial scandals into the context of a world facing up to the effects of global warming. Is mining sustainable? What needs to be done to make it ethical? Are Australian companies prepared to take any steps or is the only imperative greed? This book will provide Australians with the uncomfortable facts and shocking answers.
