Neon pink end­pa­pers pre­pare you for the sheer ex­u­ber­ance of por­traits and zingy info. The team that brought you Shout Out to the Girls has bal­anced the scales with a book about Aus­tralia’s stand­out males. A few are long gone (Dou­glas Maw­son and Howard Florey); oth­ers have just ar­rived. I had no idea that 19-year-old en­tre­pre­neur Taj Pabari is des­tined to be the next Steve Jobs. This book is aimed at 12-year-olds but adults will lunge into it and dis­cuss who, like Don Brad­man and Fred Hol­lows, were left out.
