As the son of two Federal Government Ministers, Campbell Newman was destined for a career in politics. After finding success as an army major and a high-flying management consultant, he took a leap of faith to become Lord Mayor of Brisbane and, ultimately, Premier of Queensland.
For the first time in this authorised biography, his incredible and often controversial story is revealed in remarkable detail and scope.
“Can Do: Campbell Newman and the challenge of reform” provides a frank, honest and revealing portrait of his family, army, business and political life.
Written by journalist and former parliamentarian Gavin King, “Can Do” also includes a broader discussion on the future of reform in Australia, as told to the author by some of the nation’s most prominent former and current politicians, business people and Campbell himself.
