Praise for An Italian Connection: 21 notable (Italian) Australians and their contributions (Burgundy Press):

Amongst these names are some of our greatest people, who have helped to craft the magnificent landscape in which we work and play. I will be sharing this work with my children, as I am sure they will do with theirs one day. After all, the way culture endures, is by passing on the stories.
