Summary
Arguably New Zealand's most popular Prime Minister in modern times, John Key shocked many with his decision to step down from office less than a year out from an election. Rather than seeking an historic fourth term, Key instead opted to quit while his approval rating was as high as ever in the polls. In this updated edition of the bestselling 2014 book, journalist John Roughan speaks with Key about his eight years leading the country and the motivation to turn his back on Parliament while he was still enjoying unprecedented public support. This lively portrait offers insights into Key's early life, personality and motivations. Roughan examines how the twin ambitions of a boy in a state house, 'to make a million dollars and be Prime Minister', were realised beyond his dreams, and how Key's instincts as a currency trader informed his approach to politics - and ultimately his decision to step down
