Politics, Society, Self: Occasional Writings - Geoff Gallop, Hugh Mackay
I feel bad giving Politics, Society, Self only three stars - the rating reflects the fact it didn't meet my expectations rather than the quality of the book. I wanted new insights, challenges, ways to move forward. What I got was a collection of speeches. That'll teach me to read the blurb more closely.

Good speeches are an artform. I have nothing against speeches.

But...I wanted a book that was going to develop an argument about how life could be. How we can contribute to building our society.

The speeches are a nice recap of the issues they cover.
