#var:page_name# cover

While political memoirs are often dry, self-congratulating affairs, The
Canberra Times has described Incorrigible Optimist as a memoir crackling with “wit, self-deprecating humour and illuminating insights”. Gareth covers the breadth of his colourful public life as a central figure in Australian politics and a significant voice in international policymaking for more than three decades. Kerry O’Brien sits down for a revealing chat with the man Bob Hawke once praised as having the most acute mind of any of his ministers.
