(At times) Too close to the truth for comfort
9 November 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

As someone working in the Australian government policy environment, it was very good start and a scarily accurate portrayal of dealing with political advisers. The one negative is the Prime Minister and Cabinet guys are totally wrong, at least for ones so senior. However, they do seem to have a resemble a few junior staff in PM&C that I've dealt with.

Everything else is so close to the mark, it could almost be a documentary! The use of the market research team by the advisers is a real frustration for those of us who try to develop "frank and fearless" advice to our beloved ministers.
