Mungo MacCallum is one of Australia's longest-serving political commentators (40 years and counting), as well as one of its wittiest and most passionate.

He has written for Nation Review, the National Times, theAustralian and the Sydney Morning Herald.
His autobiographical narrative of the Australian political scene – Mungo: the man who laughs – is currently in its fourth reprint. How To Be A Megalomaniac or, Advice to a Young Politician was published in 2002 and Political Anecdotes was published in 2003.

In December 2004, Duffy & Snellgrove published War and Pieces: John Howard's last election. He is one of the hardy souls to have written and published a book about the 2007 election at lightning speed: Poll Dancing (Black Inc).
