    One thought on “The House of Hancock: The Rise and Rise of Gina Rinehart”

    1. Just wow What a completely selfish and corrupt family The book covered quite a bit of Lang Hancock s life and how he manipulated, harassed influenced politicians to get his way in regard to raping pillaging the vast deposits of the Pilbara region, killing thousands of people in his wake through the dangerous mining practices and compensating nothing The book then tries to piece together Gina Rinehart s life from the small amount of public information available She is a fierce, selfish money hung [...]

    2. Interesting in that it yokes Lang Hancock s story with Gina s, which of course is highly appropriate if not rare amongst the current crop of Gina bios He was a dick but appears angelic next to her, of course What an upstanding family

    3. An interesting read, I d like to learn about Lang Hancock, in his early pioneering days, but this did shed some light on the family An interesting read
