Synopsis

From FOXTEL to News Corp, film to football, opera to business, Kim Williams is a builder of Australian institutions. He has worked with some of the very best in their fields—Rupert Murdoch, Kerry Packer, Kevin Sheedy, Gail Kelly and Don Burrows to name just a few. Rules of Engagement is a candid, up close and very personal account of the exercise of power in the nation's leading boardrooms, political parties and media organisations. Told with a deft touch and an energetic, at times mischievous spirit, Rules of Engagement shows how much one person can achieve if they have insatiable curiosity, limitless interests and impressive discipline.
