Here at Scoreboard Pressure we don’t know, yet, if this book has any references to scoreboards but it’s bound to be a good read regardless. (Especially since our mate Darren ‘Smokie’ Dawson is one of the contributors.)
“…full of stories of redemption, hope, pushing doors open for people and bringing out the very finest qualities of our communities. Put them together and they are a force for good. I see in them the very best of us. As you read the stories in this book, I’m confident you’ll see the same.” – The Hon Anthony Albanese MP, Prime Minister of Australia
