"His Way" the bestselling biography of Robert Muldoon by Barry Gustafson has been awarded the 2001 Ian Wards Prize for published historical writing in the preceding calendar year.

The Ian Wards Prize recognises "an outstanding piece of published writing that makes imaginative and constructive use of New Zealand archives and/or manuscripts".
