Aussies at their best
By Paul Camac, Oct 06 2014
Mal has written a most readable book that every Aussie and new comer to Australia should read. Essential for understanding why Aussies think and behave in their unique way - why we under promise but over deliver, why we 'bag" ourselves and others with our humour but it actually means we like you; and why we are incredibly patriotic and spiritual but don't wear it openly. Well done Mal - it really helped our national ability to say who we are and understand our own natures. I recommend to all our churches and clinic clients. Just brilliant for youth groups!
Easy Read that explains so much of what it is to an Aussie
By Thomas Poe, Jul 02 2008
This book is a nice an easy read for anyone wanting to understand how the Aussie Culture came to be. It comes at our history from a very relaxed, not academic, way and builds to show why we are so different from our fore fathers and their cultures. It doesn't shy away from the relationships with the Native Australians. Mal does not seem to have any political agendas to push just a desire to show us a little more of what makes Aussies. A good read for anyone interested in Australians.
