Melbourne Univ. Publishing, 2011 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 320 pages

This explosive firsthand account, written by one of AustraliaÍs feistiest and most controversial editors Bruce Guthrie follows the journalist through his 40 years in the news business, including his brutal dismissal from the Herald Sun and the celebrated court case that exposed the inner workings of the world's biggest media company and the treachery of its most senior executives. From GuthrieÍs battle with tuberculosis to his clash with media magnate Rupert Murdoch, this memoir not only reveals the power plays that helped shape modern media in Australia, but also conveys the inspiring story of one man's victory over formidable foes.
