'Ten Commandments for politicians - are you listening Labor? - who have forgotten the basics.' -- Laurie Oakes'How to win an election? You could start by listening to Chris Wallace. She doesn't have all the answers but ten off the top is a great start.' -- Barrie Cassidy'Elections in Australia are often decided by remarkably tight margins - a few thousand votes shift in some key seats and you get a different outcome. The campaigns parties run are complex and yet need to coalesce around strong, simple core messages. From the inside they are high-wire acts, often winner-take-all-bets. Chris Wallace brings original thinking and clarity to understanding the dynamics of elections and offers practical suggestions on how to win - including some that could probably only have come from an astute outsider. ' -- Geoff Walsh, ALP National Secretary (2000-2003), former adviser to Prime Ministers Bob Hawke and Paul Keating and Premiers Steve Bracks and John Brumby, veteran of nine Australian election campaigns'A witty yet Machiavellian explainer of how to win at contemporary politics.' -- Books + Publishing
