How Good's Australia is the perfect gift for anyone who needs an antidote to the doom and gloom out there. It's for fans of The Chaser, and anyone who needs a shot of humour to end their year... and don't we all! Australia's oldest and favourite newspaper dissects the last decade of political turmoil and cultural frustrations that turned us all against each other, and how we broke down those walls of division to come together again. This is our country's coming of age story. How good. It's been a tough few years. We've had three prime ministers in four years, a scandalous ball-tampering scandal, our own #Metoo moments (Defamation laws apply*), the Murray-Darling fish kills and, worst of all, the cancellation of both the NRL and AFL footy shows. In this penetrating and incisive book, The Betoota Advocate's editors Clancy Overell and Errol Parker take us on the nation's journey through chaos and confusion, to the start of a new era. Finally, we as a nation have been gifted the rare opportunity to choose who leads our country for an entire federal term. Our cricketers now use talent and skill to win matches. The culture wars are over, and common sense prevails. With a sensible Liberal government, a charismatic PM and a united, strong and experienced cabinet of some of our nation's greatest minds in place, we are well on the road to economic stability and environmental renewal. Join Australia's most trusted newspaper from the remote but vibrant town of Betoota, as we detail the last four years in news - how bad things got, and how lucky we, as a nation, have been to survive it all. How Good's Australia.
