Fuel for the enthusiasts.

The doers among us want tangible things – tasks, projects, pastimes. And the satisfaction of a job done is overshadowed by the search for the new and the next. For the pragmatists this Christmas, give a book they’ll add straight to the top of the to-do pile.

  • The Untold Story of Bon Scott and AC/DC's Back In Black

  • Extremely timely, enlightening and passionate, The First Casualty is foreign correspondent Peter Greste’s first-hand account of how the war on journalism has spread from the battlefields of the Middle East to the governments of the West

  • Steve Johnson has become the king of reinvention – from misbehaving larrikin to premiership star; from Cat to Giant – and he's been at the heart of two of the most remarkable AFL teams of modern times: the great Geelong triple-premiership side, and the coming juggernaut of Greater Western Sydney.

  • The authorised story of The Angels, one of the biggest names in Australian rock'n'roll.

  • This is the official autobiography of one of the AFL's most respected and celebrated players, and one of the greatest leaders the sport has ever seen. Football books don't come much bigger than this.
