My new book 'Running the Country' has been hitting a right note with teachers and librarians around the country. They've told me there was a desperate need for an updated book about how our country is run and now they have it.
We've been receiving fantastic reviews of the book. Listen to John McIntyre review the book on Radio New Zealand
