Credlin & Co. reveals the disastrous consequences of power abused, and the broken people left in its wake.

Tony Abbott and his chief of staff, Peta Credlin, ran a brilliant opposition campaign. But their approach led to disaster in government.

When Abbott became prime minister, he and Credlin ruthlessly controlled ministers, backbenchers, the public service and the media. They shut out voices that questioned Abbott's way. Everything started to unravel.

Credlin & Co. is the story of a relationship that determined the fate of a government. It shows in stunning detail the disastrous consequences of power abused, and the broken people left in its wake.

          Comments about Credlin & Co.:

          I read books from all sides of politics which sometimes which regards to the character are amusing, sometimes not so amusing, but at least I can make my own call (not a captain's call) on how I view the political world. Mind you at the end of the day all books of this type are just a money making venture.

            Reading this book will lead you to think the change of leadership by the liberal Party was a process of real not destruction.

              It is interesting to read behind the scenes. We all listen and watch the news that is fed to us often with no connection to reality
