Kim Williams goes to the dogs (tastefully, of course)

This morning Kim Williams launched his new book, Rules of Engagement, which focuses more on family, wine, sport and good living, rather than his tumble from the News Corp roost.

Anyone looking for a “Get News Corp” book from former CEO Kim Williams will be quite disappointed. In the preface to his new book, Rules of Engagement, he says that although he took extensive notes during his time at News, including the nature of his sacking late last year, he would not be writing about it at this time. He may, of course, be saving it up for the future, or there may be a confidentiality clause. At this morning’s book launch, he said that this account could be released in 10 years, when he is “free of the things that permeate public life” — a “surfeit of emotion and deficit of facts”.

    Wow Margot, sounds like a real page turner.
    I might just wait for part two, when the confidentiality clause expires.
