Publisher's Summary

Australia is a proud country full of proud people, but exactly what are we proud of?
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...

Superb Narration!!

The Narrator's performance and the Author's clever wit!

Who was your favorite character and why?

There were so many great characters! But my fav was the Koori fella right at the start lol

What about Jim Pike’s performance did you like?

EVERYTHING! Can't wait to hear more of his entertaining voice/voices!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not "moved" me but I was laughing and entertained the whole way through

Any additional comments?

Highly recommended! Can't wait to listen to another Ben Pobjie book and listen to more narration by Jim Pike. Smiles all round on this one! :D :D :D
