#1 bestselling author

The riveting autobiography from Australia’s inimitable Geoffrey Robertson. Funny, personal and bringing Robertson's fascinating and colourful career up to date following The Justice Game.

In this witty, engrossing and sometimes poignant memoir, a sequel to his bestselling The Justice Game, Australia’s inimitable Geoffrey Robertson charts his progress from pimply state schoolboy to top Old Bailey barrister and thence onwards and upwards to a leading role in the struggle for human rights throughout the world. He wryly observes the absurdities of growing up as one of ‘Ming’s kids’; the passion of student protest in the '60s and his early crusades for ‘Down Under-dogs’, before leaving on a Rhodes Scholarship to combat the British establishment, with the help of John Mortimer of ‘Rumpole’ fame. There are dramatic accounts of fighting for lives on death rows, freeing dissidents and taking on tyrants, armed only with a unique mind and a passion for justice – on display whenever he boomeranged back to Australia to conduct Geoffrey Robertson’s Hypotheticals. In this updated edition of his amazing life story, he tells of David and Goliath battle; tales that feature a cast of characters from Malcolm Turnbull to Mike Tyson; from Nigella Lawson to Kathy Lette and Julian Assange. Throughout his exploits – recounted here with irreverent humour and dashes of true wisdom – Geoffrey Robertson has remained determinedly independent and his own man. He has also, in respect of human rights, changed the way we think.

'When a heart-stoppingly unputdownable comedy thriller turns out to be a truthful account of a real life, you know you're on to a winner.'
Stephen Fry

'Before I read Geoffrey’s brilliant book, I thought a barrister was a guy who made expensive coffee. I’m much wiser now.'
Billy Connolly

'Witty, clever and compassionate, Geoffrey tell his personal story in the pursuit of the holy grail of social justice and the rule of law.'
Gillian Triggs
