Fantastic book! A true credit to the author.
The Rise and Rise of Kerry Packer by Paul Barry is a must read for anyone interested in Australian non-fiction. Enjoyable to read to the last page, yet educational at the same time, it is clear Barry has gone to great lengths to provide the reader with an unbiased and balanced account of Packer's life starting with his grandfather and then his father. True to the form of the professional investigative journalist Barry is the content is thoroughly researched with detailed referencing provided. Furthermore the length of the book allows Barry to provide an in depth view into the life of arguably one of the most complex and successful business people of our time.
