Australia's coal seam gas industry in rural New South Wales and Queensland carries unprecedented toxic environmental risks, but it could be the path to energy salvation by being cleaner than coal, safer than nuclear energy, and a complement to renewables.

While big oil and gas companies believe Australia could be the biggest liquid natural gas exporter in the world, farmers and environmentalists are united in their opposition to coal seam gas extraction from Australia's most fertile agricultural lands. Do coal seam gas wells poison our food resources? Does coal seam gas really aid in tackling climate change? Visiting drill sites, boardrooms, pipelines, parliamentary offices, and farm gate protests, the author demonstrates how coal seam gas extraction may be one boom that is happening too fast.

From his apprenticeship in the NSW parliament to the last days of the Gillard Labor government, Rob Oakeshott tells it as it was. When the results of the 2010 federal election became known, no party had a majority in the House of Representatives. It was the first hung parliament for 40 years. So, both the Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, and the Leader of the Opposition, Tony Abbott, set about wooing the Independents - including Rob Oakeshott and Tony Windsor. In the end, Julia Gillard stitched together an agreement to form government. Rob Oakeshott, in this very candid and compelling memoir, relates the events leading up to this agreement and what happened thereafter when he and Windsor, in particular, proved themselves to be stauncher supporters of Julia Gillard than many of her party colleagues. He remembers moments of celebration and incidents of perfidy. But above all, we get to meet close up and personal the man who played such an important role in the 43rd Australian parliament.
