Join Tony Simpson as he launches Along for the Ride, his memoir as a unionist and public servant of life and society from the 1970s through to the new millennium.

The author of sixteen published books, including the award-winning Sugarbag Years, Tony is one of New Zealand’s best known social historians.

But through his working life, he has also been a witness to and participant in major events shaping current society: irritating Muldoon, watching Thatcher’s rise during his OE, seeing off the Lange government and its Rogernomics, and ultimately serving as senior advisor to Deputy Prime Minister Jim Anderton.

With dollops of wry wit, Along for the Ride offers us a politically committed insider’s probing insights into some of recent history’s most momentous changes.
