Overview

In this frank and honest account, Andrew Robb describes his unspoken fear that what he passed off as "not being good in the mornings" was something darker: a black dog whose daily visit lasted longer as the years passed. Worried about stigmas and letting people down, he avoided confronting the problem for four decades, the adrenaline of high-pressure and high-profile jobs offering the ideal antidote. Ultimately, achieving his goals meant having to face up to this very private demon. This autobiography details the challenges of managing depression, political ambition, and life in the Liberal Party. Robb’s devotion to the Liberal cause gave him the impetus to tackle his condition. Little did he know that it would also allow for greater freedom, opportunity, and meaning in his life.
