Interestingly much of the book is based on leaked emails and policy papers from National Party supporters who were very unhappy about the secret meetings and deals they were privy to.

By Dr Stuart Jeanne Bramhall, author of THE MOST REVOLUTIONARY ACT
The book was published a year after the 2005 election, one of the most controversial - and according to many, corrupt elections in New Zealand history. Even after extensive media damage control, the first edition was sold out before its release in my city.
Bob Garfield, host of the US based "On the Media" said that this book - using stolen emails for many of its allegations - was comparable to the Pentagon papers. After reading this well sourced book, it is clear that the allegations of Labour corruption pale in comparison to their major competitor; it is essential reading for anyone interested in New Zealand politics, or political corruption in general.
