WHY vs WHY: Big Australia
In WHY vs WHY™ Big Australia, we pit opposing writers against each other, Jessica Brown & Oliver Hartwich (YES) vs Mark O’Connor (NO). They go head-to-head, each side presenting 7 key reasons why you should say yes/no to Big Australia.
After each side presents their arguments, the opponent then tries to tear each of them apart, both in the book & on this website (with further rebuttals). For readers, we aim to leave nothing unanswered.
Jessica, Oliver and Mark are good writers with strong, well-argued opinions. Who will you agree with? Will one of them change your mind? Read the book & find out.
In WHY vs WHY™, you get both sides, so you can decide for yourself… The books are also a great tool to help you convince others, people who don’t see the light the way you do. Buy them a copy!
“… very readable… well-thought-out arguments… well worth a read… very provocative… It’s a book you can read after dinner with a cup of tea…” – Natasha Mitchell, ABC Radio National
“I think it’s a terrific idea…It’s a series of small but perfectly formed books…it’s a very civil little series of books… a good way of presenting these sort of issues.”
“…a balanced approach to controversial issues…”
“I like the way this is presented… a very helpful little series…”
“Each side gets to make its case and rebut its opponent… There’s no name-calling or irrational ranting, just the main arguments, pro and con.”
“Pantera Press has come up with a great new idea to foster debate on complex topics… a series of pocket-size books that tackle both sides…”
“… a smart-aleck’s guide to winning arguments at the pub….’ ‘I just love it… a quick read, an informative read, and a cheap read… under $20…”
“Each book in the WHY vs WHY series focuses on a hot-button issue… and two prominent thinkers do their best to convince readers to embrace their position.”
“…for those who pride themselves on arguing the facts rather than on pure emotion, a new ‘double sided’ book from Pantera Press might come in handy – flip the book around one way and read the ‘no’ case… then flip it over again to read the ‘yes’ case…”
“… You can read it at your leisure.”
“… very readable… well-thought-out arguments… well worth a read… very provocative… It’s a book you can read after dinner with a cup of tea… wonderfully even handed Pantera Press book.”
