Take Your Best Shot is an insightful, revelatory and immensely readable account of Julia Gillard's leadership – and its abrupt ending.

No Australian prime minister has had to face such a difficult and challenging political environment as did Julia Gillard. Her impressive legislative record was overshadowed by pitched battles with jealous rivals and a remarkably hostile media, as well as her own struggles to communicate effectively with the public.

Following her successful The Making of Julia Gillard, award-winning biographer Jacqueline Kent analyses our first woman prime minister's tumultuous term in office, drawing on a range of views and including an exclusive new interview with Gillard herself.
Take Your Best Shot is an insightful, revelatory and immensely readable account of Julia Gillard's leadership – and its abrupt ending.
