Second Best

Author(s): Ben Pobjie

Australian Studies | September 2020 New Releases

 


 History is always written by the winners and about the winners. But what about the men and women of the past who reached for gold but grasped only morale-sapping silver?

Australia’s second-best comedy historian Ben Pobjie celebrates the fascinating stories of those pipped at the post of greatness – from Buzz Aldrin following footsteps on the moon, to the woman not credited with discovering DNA because she had two X chromosomes, and Australia’s second Prime Minister whose name everyone keeps forgetting.


Second Best shines a light on those plucky men and women who, through no fault of their own – or at least only a little bit of fault of their own – didn’t quite get there before everyone else, but did get there before almost everyone else.
