Description

Power of Balance is the landmark memoir from Dr Kerryn Phelps AM that explores the events and ideas that have inspired her to create change throughout her lifetime. From medicine, media, politics, advocacy and activism, Kerryn has led a remarkable life of changemaking in many domains.

One of Australia's first ‘TV doctors’, Dr Kerryn Phelps served as President of the Australian Medical Association, Deputy Lord Mayor of Sydney, and a key leader of Australia's LGBT+ community. Little did she know, as she celebrated the historic Marriage Equality win in 2017, that she would be back just one year later as a Member of Parliament, having been elected as an independent by the people of Wentworth after a leadership coup ousted Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

In her memoir, Dr Kerryn candidly explores her struggles and achievements, in medicine, media and politics – from her advocacy around Medevac and COVID-19 management, to the fallout of her public ‘outing’ in the Australian media, and her inspirational role in the Teal movement of the 2022 elections. She also reflects on the ideas and passions that have motivated and sustained her during these times, including her philosophies of leadership and equality, and her love of nature. Power of Balance is a compelling and thought-provoking read that will inspire others to become leaders and changemakers.
