In ‘LAWSIE: Well…you wanted to know’, John Laws addresses the critics and controversies, discusses his phenomenal success and tells of the famous and infamous people he has met along the way…Brian Henderson, Col Joye, John Singleton, Kerry Packer, John Williamson, Johnny Cash, Roger Miller, Peter Warren, ‘Jumbo’ Jim Burgess, and a host of prime ministers and politicians.
Not bad for a Depression-era kid evacuated to Sydney from Papua New Guinea during World War II; one who suffered from polio as child (and again as an adult), was a loner at school and then lost his father when he was just 15 years old. From this ‘nothing’, as Laws saw his early life, he made something special.
Laws also talks about his life; his love for Caroline, his wife of 40 years and the remarkable success he achieved along the way … with only the odd regret.
