'In this autobiography, Calwell pulls no punches and spares no reputations, least of all his own. He recalls his brushes with John Curtin, H V Evatt and Gough Whitlam, who were his political colleagues. He tells of the dramatic moment when Curtin threatened to reign over a remark Calwell made about him. He laments over the disastrous Labor splits which have helped to keep his party in Opposition for so many years. he discusses in detail his resentment of church interference in political affairs and the arguments which, he says, continue to bring him 'hateful looks' when he goes to church.'
