What’s going on behind the bravado of the ‘average Aussie bloke’?

Following the untimely deaths of two friends, Rob Mills began questioning who he is as a person and a man. Soon his self-reflection shifted outwards, and he got to wondering how he fits into the category of ‘Aussie bloke’. Who is the average Aussie bloke, anyway, and does he even exist? What does he see as his purpose in the world? What is the state of his mental health? What does he think about gender roles, about family, sex and mateship, about violence and vulnerability?

Charged by his naturally inquisitive nature, and with enough smarts to know he doesn’t have all the answers, Rob called on the help of experts and friends. This book is the result of all these questions: a fascinating, chatty, insightful and often hilarious deep dive into both Rob’s own life and that of the man on the street.

About the Author

Since rising to fame on Australian Idol in 2003, Rob Mills has built a prolific career across television, film, stage and musicals, performing celebrated roles in shows such as Wicked, Jesus Christ Superstar, Grease, Neighbours and Dancing with the Stars. His fondness for storytelling and entertainment (not to mention a bit of blokey banter) have found new expression in Putting on a Show, his first book.

Rob lives in Sydney with his partner Georgie, and is actually looking forward to turning 40.
