    One thought on “Gotta Love This Country!: Great stories from around Australia to lift your heart, make you laugh and puff out your chest”

    1. About 180 short anecdotes on the Australian life which, of course, revolve around sports! Definitely some stories to warm the cockles of your heart. I only rated as 2 stars because it's a bit much (& rather boring) to read / listen all at once. I think this book is for your coffee table to be flicked through and read only a few stories at a time.

    2. This book wasn't for me. I have enjoyed everything else I have read by FitzSimons, but not this. Too much sport and each story is just a snippet. Think I will stick to his histories.

    3. I didn't realise the book's about sports. While I am not a big sports fan, it was a feel good read! Good Aussie Sports!!
