Comedian and history buff Ben Pobjie delves deep into Australia's past and has a good old rummage amongst the nation's personal effects.
With wit, perspicacity and a healthily elastic attitude to historical accuracy, the great saga of Australia is unravelled like an old woolly jumper. For anyone who snoozed through history class at school, this is the book to get you all caught up.

Not bad but hard to tell facts from jokes
A comedic history of Australia where historical facts are indiscriminately interweeved with fictional jokes and satire. The problem is if you dont already know the historical facts you wont get the jokes and wont know if its a joke or fact. Unfortunately i feel like i know less about Australian history because of the fictional jokes masquerading as fact...
