We were in the doctors office and it sounded like something out of a B Grade movie when I said: Give it to me straight... how long have I got?Hed just told me I had cancer, compounded by advanced cirrhosis of the liver.

how long have I got?Hed just told me I had cancer, compounded by advanced cirrhosis of the liver. The doctors reply: Twelve months. There was a chance I could live longer if I could get a rare liver transplant but there were hurdles to get over just to get on The List. I knew that, at any time, there are about 2000 Australians waiting for organ donors to save their lives.

And 20% die waiting.To complicate things, I was fighting another battle. This one in the courts where I faced a jail sentence for a Name Them, Shame Them campaign which climaxed when I named two serial sex offenders whose identities had been suppressed.A traumatic eight months after making The List, I received a new liver and a new life. Two weeks after surgery I limped into court to be sentenced to five months under house arrest. There were also allegations I had jumped the queue and didnt deserve an organ transplant because Id been a drinker.In this book, I try to honestly answer all those questions and more.

One things for sure: It was a helluva year.Derryn Hinch.
