AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Andrew ‘Twiggy’ Forrest is the public face of Australia’s once-in-a-life time mining boom. A swashbuckling entrepreneur in the finest West Australian tradition, Twiggy took on mining giants BHP and Rio Tinto at their own game – and won. Yet he has also

been embroiled in two of the most heated debates in recent Australian history: the treatment of Aboriginal people and the mining super-profit tax. In this unauthorised biography, journalist Andrew Burrell reveals the complicated man behind the Twiggy

myth. Why do his mining ventures attract so much controversy? And what do his philanthropic schemes tell us about him, and his plans for the future? It takes an extraordinary force of will, combined with boundless energy and cunning, to create enterprises on the mammoth scale that Twiggy has. This entertaining book gives a unique insight into one of the most powerful men in Australia today. '
