From respected journalists Lenore Taylor and David Uren comes the inside story of the Rudd government's first term in office. It is a tenure that will be forever defined by the global financial crisis, or - to use the Prime Minster's term - the 'shitstorm' that engulfed the nation and the world. Taylor and Uren uncover the challenges Kevin Rudd and his team faced, and through a study of their tactics and approaches, assemble a picture of a rookie government that is at once surprising and revealing.
