The Bulletin Magazine in June, 2006, reported that Pauline Hanson is formally listed as one of the 100 most influential Australians ever. She is one of only 11 women on this list, and in fact 6 women are already deceased. In 2003, Pauline Hanson was sentenced to three years’ jail on convictions of fraud. She spent three months in prison before the verdict was overturned and she was released with a full withdrawal of the charges. Now, four years later, Pauline tells the story of how she came to be charged, her fight to prove her innocence and of her life before and after politics. This is Pauline’s story – the good, the bad, and the ugly, because she is determined to let the Australian public know the truth about those heady years and why she kept fighting for what she genuinely believed in. She writes about her detractors, mostly the media, who under specific instructions set out to ruin her credibility and her political aspirations. Greed, lies, sycophantic personalities and downright dirt! Pauline’s book covers her time in politics and her shock discovery about what really happened behind closed political doors. But, it also lets the reader know about Pauline’s close-knit family and the lengths to which the family will go to protect each other.
To ensure that ordinary Australian ‘battlers’ can buy a copy of the book Pauline in her own words said that she wanted the price of the book to be affordable. There will be limited book-signing opportunities available in each state as selected by Pan Macmillan in conjunction with Pauline’s one month media tour. The media tour will also include speaking engagements at public venues. This book is a truly remarkable read! It’s a ‘warts & all’ story told by the real Pauline Hanson!
