William McInnes, one of Australia's best-loved entertainers and authors, takes a look at the Aussie obsession with sports and pop culture.
A chance encounter in an auction house is the jumping-off point for William's inimitable take on our sport-obsessed nation, Australian popular culture and the artefacts and memorabilia that both make us cringe with recognition and laugh with warm affection. His trademark humour and anecdotes litter this collection, making it a true delight.
These are truly Aussie stories: about us, and about the things - and the people - in our lives.
**Includes BONUS CHAPTERS of two William McInnes classics: A Man's Got to Have a Hobby and Holidays and an extract from his latest hilarious and heartwarming memoir, Fatherhood**
