The authorities on all things bogan and authors of THINGS BOGANS LIKE are back with an historical, sociological, geographic and cultural study that traces bogan culture back to society's very foundation. Identifying prototypical and stereotypical bogans through time, they examine the bogan of the 19th century and their pre-war descendants, before moving onto the speciman often considered the quintessential bogan, identified by a love of '80s metal, flannelette and Victoria Bitter. They then track the bogan's leap into the 21st century - where they can be seen across the country, clad in garish garb, holding their nationalism close to their chest, and slavishly following every celebrity trend. BOGANOMICS is an important book for all Australians as understanding is the bridge to unity. Read this book to broaden your knowlege ... or to laugh ... a lot.

While largely Australian in jokes, this is most amusing. Unless you are a Bogan. Read full review

Well I found it amusing if a little strained at times. Have not read "Things Boguns Like" which I assume has virtually the same sort of humour (and target audience). Boganomics is really just a book ... Read full review

About the author (2011)

There are in fact six self-confessed snobs responsible for this maxtreme study: E. Chas McSween: Adopted at the age of eight, by visiting celebrity bogan Greg Evans and relocated to a household full of Ken Done prints and Jive Bunny CDs. Intravenus De Milo: Now living in Australia, smug in the satisfaction that he is pretty much the smartest person in the country. Melbourne and Sana’a, Yemen-based Hunter McKenzie-Smythe: Completed an Arts degree and skied the world until experiencing an epiphany and converted to Sunni Islam. Flash Johnson: Born from an egg on a Peruvian mountaintop in 1986, Flash set sail for Australia - the site of the world’s most advanced bogan colony and now resides in Melbourne. Enron Hubbard: Since his arrest for civil unrest while defending battery hens, militant vegan Ron lives as a hermit, fearful of reprisals from angry bogans who value their low-cost, high-quantity egg and poultry goods. Michael Jayfox: From the lush, bogan habitat of Victoria's Latrobe Valley. Initially planning to sell the bogan maxtreme products that it didn't need, he became distracted by the study of the bogan creature itself, and began writing of its ways.
