    Drawing on interviews with Julia Gillard's friends and foes – and with Gillard herself – award-winning biographer Jacqueline Kent gives us a complete account of Gillard's entire political career. She’s doesn’t fit the stereotype. Jacqueline Kent has 14 books on Goodreads with ratings. Jacqueline Kent’s most popular book is The Making of Julia Gillard.

    Kent depicts Gillard's dramatic ascent to becoming Australia's first female prime minister, and her tumultuous time in office. The Making of Julia Gillard is an insightful and immensely readable account of this remarkable woman and her leadership - and its abrupt ending. 'Jam-packed with anecdotes and titbits about this fascinating woman.'. Everything Julia Gillard achieved in her political career is because she is a member of the Labor Party. Everything wrong with her politics is because she is a member of the Labor Party. Ms Gillards book is called My Story. It could just as easily have the sub-title, And Im Sticking To It/5.

'Jam-packed with anecdotes and titbits about this fascinating woman.'Brand: Kent Jacqueline. Yet The Making of Julia Gillard fails to engage. The prose is at best workmanlike, and there is little sense of narrative as the book travels chronologically through Gillard’s life. The moments when the book comes alive are generally when Gillard herself is : Peter Mares.
