'Ten Commandments for politicians – are you listening Labor? – who have forgotten the basics.' — Laurie Oakes
'How to win an election? You could start by listening to Chris Wallace. She doesn't have all the answers but ten off the top is a great start.' — Barrie Cassidy
'Elections in Australia are often decided by remarkably tight margins – a few thousand votes shift in some key seats and you get a different outcome. The campaigns parties run are complex and yet need to coalesce around strong, simple core messages. From the inside they are high-wire acts, often winner-take-all-bets. Chris Wallace brings original thinking and clarity to understanding the dynamics of elections and offers practical suggestions on how to win – including some that could probably only have come from an astute outsider. ' — Geoff Walsh, ALP National Secretary (2000–2003), former adviser to Prime Ministers Bob Hawke and Paul Keating and Premiers Steve Bracks and John Brumby, veteran of nine Australian election campaigns
