All author proceeds from this book are donated to help the children displaced by the Syrian civil war by funding humanitarian aid through the registered charity Australia for UNHCR. Most political memoirs are boring. Bob Carr tears up the rules. He plunges in, beginning with the despair of a young man pining for a political career, convinced he's going nowhere, then vaulting to the exhilaration of a premier who, on one day, saves a vast forest and unveils the country's best curriculum. He lashes himself for ignoring a cry from a prisoner in a cell and for a breach of protocol with a US Supreme Court judge. He considers talking to the leader of a notorious rape gang and celebrates winning power against the odds- a leader without kids or any interest in sport. He describes growing up in a fibro house without sewerage and a 'lousy education' that produced a lifetime appetite for self-learning. He is candid about dealing with the media, dining with royals, working for Kerry Packer. He reveals the secrets he learnt from Neville Wran. He is open about his adulation of Gough Whitlam. Floating above all is Bob Carr's idea of public service in a party, he says, that resembles an old, scarred, barnacled whale. In an era of bland politicians, here's one with personality true to his quirky self. Silence the jet skis! Balance the budget! Liberate the dolphins! Roll out the toll roads! Declare a million hectares of eucalypt wilderness! Be a politician of character.

It is usual for politicians to conceal their beliefs, but Bob Carr says what he thinks - with clarity, passion, elegance, wit and commanding logic. On literature, nature, art and public affairs, on Margaret Thatcher, Bill Clinton, the bush, the beach, the Olympic Games, the meaning of history, the failure of socialism, heroin, migration, depression, patriotism, he writes from the unique perspective of a head of government who must wrestle daily with forces that shape and alter human lives. A book for all concerned with where we have come from and where we are going, in Australia, and in the modern world. All proceeds from Thoughtlines will go towards scholarships to enable NSW teachers of children with disabilities to further their studies.

Six years after vacating his position as the longest-serving premier of New South Wales, Bob Carr returned to politics in his dream job: as foreign minister of Australia and a senior federal cabinet minister. For 18 months he kept a diary documenting a whirl of high-stakes events on the world stage—the election of Australia to the UN Security Council, the war in Syria, and meetings with the most powerful people on the planet. And they all unfold against the gripping, uncertain domestic backdrop of Labor Party infighting, plummeting polls, and a leadership change from Gillard back to Rudd. This compelling diary provides an intimate glimpse into the day-to-day workings of a foreign minister and proves that Carr is not only a master politician and statesman but a great writer as well.
