Born to Rule

Paddy Manning

Turnbull’s privileged existence, helped by marrying into one of Sydney’s most storied families, obscures a tough childhood and precocious talent. Left or right? Many Liberals believe Turnbull admirer of Jack Lang, mentored by Neville Wran, feted by Paul Keating; joined the wrong party. Popular or unpopular? Years at the top of preferred leader polls do not dispel a sense Turnbull is not one of us. The future PM? On-again, off-again, for more than a decade Turnbull has seemed destined for the country’s top job. Now, perhaps, it is closer than ever. If Prime Minister, what would Turnbull do?

Turnbull has been subject of many profiles, but the full story of his life has never been told. In an unauthorised biography, Sydney journalist Paddy Manning reveals the true character of one of Australia’s most celebrated overachievers: journalist, lawyer, businessman, politician.
