While thousands of viewers watched Joe Hockey’s approachable persona each week on Australia’s Sunrise on Channel 7, there is a lot more to the Australian treasurer than meets the eye. This authorized biography of Hockey delves into how he embarked on his political career as a student and how he worked tirelessly to rise through the ranks of the Liberal Party, learning some pivotal lessons along the way and earning himself one of the nation’s toughest jobs. Having held a raft of senior ministerial positions in the John Howard administration, he presides over some of the most controversial financial decisions of the decade. Already a household name in Australia, it is hard not to know about Hockey the politician, who has declared a “new age of opportunity” and whose budget has got the nation talking. But what about the man behind the politician? Drawing on hundreds of interviews, as well as full access to Joe Hockey, his family and friends, this biography explores the influences that have shaped his life, and provides an exclusive and unparalleled insight into the man who will play a pivotal role in Australia’s future.
