Description

Author Talk: Robyn Williams

Turmoil: Records from the Brink


Robyn Williams, presenter of The Science Show on ABC Radio, reveals all in Turmoil, a searingly honest and often blackly funny reflection on his life, friends, the people he loves and loathes, and a multi-faceted career that includes over forty years on radio.

Robyn writes frankly about everything, from performing with Monty Python, his impressions of fellow scientists Richard Dawkins and David Attenborough, and his unique insights on climate change and the recent devaluing of science, to frugality and being treated for bowel cancer.

Robyn Williams is one of Australia’s best-known and best-loved broadcasters who has presented science programs on ABC radio and television since 1972. Early in his career he made guest appearances in The Goodies, Monty Python’s Flying Circus and Dr Who.

The author of 16 books, he is the first journalist to be elected a fellow of the Australian Academy of Science. He was a visiting fellow at Balliol College, Oxford, and is a visiting professor at the University of New South Wales and the University of Queensland.
