              'Our house is on fire,' 16-year-old Swedish school strike activist Greta Thunberg told world leaders in 2019. Across an angry year of weather, Australians watched it in real-time: record heatwaves and worsening drought, unprecedented fish kills in the Murray-Darling Basin and dev...astating wildfires across Queensland and NSW - this is climate change, a terrifying portent for the most arid continent on earth. But most shocking of all is the untold human toll - escalating human deaths in Australia and beyond. The climate crisis is now a health emergency, with extreme weather events, disease, mental illness and infrastructure collapse killing what the WHO predicts will be millions around the world over the next decade. Shocking and undeniable, Manning reveals what climate change really looks like, telling the moving stories of victims, their families and doctors - putting names and faces to the people who have already paid the ultimate price for inaction on the biggest moral challenge of our century.

              A revelatory examination of the history and the future of the Australian Greens After a decade of unprecedented political volatility, Australians appear increasingly disillusioned with the two major parties. Yet the Greens, the third force in Australian politics since the turn of... the century, get comparatively little scrutiny. Inside the Greens is a warts-and-all look at the party's roots, key personalities, policies, turning points, and highs and lows, with all the colour and cloak-and-dagger factional intrigue thrown in. The key question was framed by former prime minister Julia Gillard- are the Greens just a party of protest or can they become a party of government? Put another way, are the Greens up to it? Journalist Paddy Manning interviews those on all sides of the story -- friends and foes both inside and outside the party, and Greens past and present, including Bob Brown, Christine Milne, Lee Rhiannon, Adam Bandt, Scott Ludlam and Richard Di Natale. Drawing on the history and current challenges for the party to examine its future, Manning weaves a compelling and controversial account of where the Greens -- and Australia -- are heading.

              Born to Rule is the unauthorised biography that unravels the many layers of the man who has just become the 29th Prime Minister of Australia. The highs and lows of Malcolm Turnbull's remarkable career are documented here in technicolour detail by journalist Paddy Manning. Based o...n countless interviews and painstaking research, it is a forensic investigation into one of Australia's most celebrated overachievers. Turnbull's relentless energy and quest for achievement have taken him from exclusive Point Piper to Oxford University; from beating the Thatcher government in the Spycatcher trial to losing the referendum on the republic; from defending the late Kerry Packer - codenamed Goanna - in the Costigan Royal Commission to defending his own role in the failure of HIH, Australia's biggest corporate collapse. He was involved in the unravelling of the Tourang bid for Fairfax, struck it rich as co - founder of OzEmail, and fought his own hotly contested battle for Wentworth. As opposition leader he was duped by Godwin Grech's 'Utegate' fiasco; as the most tech - savvy communications minister he oversaw a nobbled NBN scheme. And now he has assumed the leadership of the Liberal Party for the second time after wresting the prime ministership from first - term PM Tony Abbott. Will Turnbull crash and burn as he has before or has his entire tumultuous life been a rehearsal for this moment?
