Everything you wanted to know about Australia, but were too apathetic to ask.
The Chaser's Australia is a comprehensive guide to the culture, history, politics, religion fashion, media and the few remaining footy heroes not currently facing criminal charges, that have made Australia one of the Top 196 countries in the world today. Whether it's Andrew Bolt's Guide to Indigenous Australia or the Environment Chapter proudly sponsored by the Minerals Council of Australia – featuring fewer facts than an Andrew Bolt column, and more offensive claims than a George Pell's testimony – you can't help but think this book is the perfect companion volume to a proper book about Australia. If you only buy one book titled The Chaser's Australia, make it this one.
The Chaser's Australia is a special bumper issue of The Chaser Quarterly. It is written by Chaser writers Mark Humphries (The Roast, The Feed) and Evan Williams (The Roast, The Feed, The New Yorker) with contributions from Chris Taylor and Charles Firth (The Chaser), James Schloeffel (The Shovel) and Rohan Arneil (the intern).
It is the perfect Father's Day gift for dads who are fans of The Chaser and who are also able to read. And perfect for reading when the battery on your smartphone goes flat.
The book the most comprehensive guide to Australia ever compiled, and is divided into six hilarious sections: Politics, History, The Nation, Sport & Religion, Culture & Media and People. 'Our religion section covers all the major denominations: AFL, NRL, Soccer, Cricket, even lawn bowls," said Editor-in-Chief, Charles Firth.
