    Paul Keating is a romantic He believes that politics is an art based upon passion and intuition This book, a collection of his speeches post PM, also shows his scathing side and his fierce intelligence No wonder he is so feared and despised by the reactionaries in Australia because he calls them for what they are small minded parochial hicks Keating likes the big picture, he goes for the guts of the problem or the solution and then figurers it out from there.
