That and Other Lies of the 2016 Campaign
What a Time to Be Alive: That and Other Lies of the 2016 Campaign is Mark Di Stefano's ugly, unsanitised diary behind the double dissolution election campaign. A poll fought between two wildly ambitious men who want to win their first election, whatever it takes.
Mark Di Stefano reveals what happens behind the scenes and how the two campaigns manufactured, massaged and manipulated their parties, policies and principles. What a Time to Be Alive documents the rollercoaster ride of an historic election campaign, week by long week, taking us into the bizarre world of staged photo ops, booze-drenched regrets and dirty direct messages.
The exposé of unscripted moments with political leaders, their overworked staff and secretive minders show how the sausage that was the 2016 Australian election was made and reveals what is really inside.
