Pete Dickson is an incredibly talented filmmaker. I have known him now for two decades and my admiration for his work and his immense artistic contribution to our country only continue to grow.
More importantly, Pete is a wonderful person. He is a loving father, husband, son and brother who is part of a big family. All families can speak of the love and the pain that you witness across the years, how you deal with the challenges of life and the difficulties of coping with tragedy, and the long-term impact that events can have upon you.
In this book, Pete honours the life of his late brother Rob, his hero and his best friend. It tells exquisitely the story of his own journey through life, from the child finding his own way in a big family, to an adult finding his way in a big world.
At times it's tough, and at other times it's joyous. It is filled with triumph, disappointment, happiness and terrible grief, and is a compelling story I urge you to read because it centres around love.
