Power Trip free pdf Power Trip shows the making of Kevin Rudd, Prime Minister. In Eumundi, where Rudd was born, David Marr investigates the formative tradegy of his life: the death of his father and what came after. He tracks the transformation of a dreamy kid into an inplacably determined youth, already set on the prime ministership. He examines Rudd's years as Wayne Goss's right-hand man in Queensland, his relentless work in federal Opposition - from Sunrise to AWB - and finally his record as prime minister. In Rudd's Queensland years, Marr finds strange patterns that will reoccur: a tendency to chaos, a mania for contral and a strange mix of heady ambition and retreat. All through this dazzling and relevatory essay, Marr seeks to know what drives an extraordinarily driven man. As Power Trip concludes, he enters into a conversation with the prime minister in which much becomes clear. 'Rudd has sold himself to the Australian people as a new kind of leader: a man of intellect and values out to reshape the future. If he isn't that, people are asking, what is he? And who is he?...Millions of words have been written about him since he emerged from the Labor pack half a dozen years ago, but Rudd remains hidden in full view. ' David Marr, Power Trip
