What's in the book?

Lyle Shelton takes readers on a rare behind-the-scenes tour of culture wars.

“I Kid You Not”, is because the Left has gotten away with things most Australians would find incredible, if only they knew. 

Before #MeToo, Shelton fought the legalised sexual abuse of young women.

On human rights for the unborn, his revelations of politicians turning a blind eye to the evil of eugenics is shocking.

He details the bombing of the Australian Christian Lobby’s office and its poor handling by the Australian Federal Police.

Chapters on “Safe Schools” and the 2017 marriage plebiscite are a sad tale of what could have been.

Shelton ends with a compelling call for good people to rise and pay the price for a better future.
