Upon his death in October 2014 there was a national outpouring of grief and affectionate remembrances across the nation. This book includes condolences from politicians of all political stripes; eulogies from the State Memorial Service and a selection of messages of condolence from the men and women of Australia. 

Not Just For This Life also includes a foreword by Graham Freudenberg and short introductions by Laurie Oakes, Anita Heiss, Geraldine Doogue, Don Watson, Patricia Hewitt, Nick Whitlam and Tim Soutphommasane where they tell their stories of the period following Gough’s death and their experiences with Gough.
