An international bestseller, now available in more than 25 countries and five languages — recommended as one of the world’s top ten self-help books by Body+Soul. ‘Carefully and creatively presents techniques that anyone can use to undermine struggle, avoidance, and loss of the moment. Harris ... shines a powerful beacon showing us another way forward.’— Steven Hayes, PhD, author of Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life ‘Eminently practical and readable.’— Zindel Segal, PhD, author of The Mindful Way through Depression

‘Meditation teaches a similar lesson, as does the still youthful field of “acceptance and commitment therapy”, outlined in Russ Harris’s excellent book The Happiness Trap. The point isn’t to improve your thoughts and feelings, or stamp out negative ones, so much as to “unhook” from them; to stop being a puppet they jerk around. This isn’t a Secret, nor really a Power. It’s more of a Useful Insight.’ — Oliver Burkeman, Guardian (UK)

Deadly Beautiful Vanishing killers of the animal kingdom Liana Christensen Illustrations by Ian Faulkner Deadly Beautiful offers an entertaining portrait of some of the world’s most dangerous animal species with which humans have a love–hate relationship. Woven into the text are accounts of people’s close encounters with deadly animals — the good, the bad and the bizarre — as well as stories from myth and legend that have contributed to modern perceptions. In addition, realistic risk assessments are included, often in a gently humorous way; for example, how likely you are to die in your bed than be killed by a shark. A beautiful illustration by Ian Faulkner opens each chapter.

About the Author Dr Liana Christensen is an experienced wildlife and natural resources journalist. She was for five years the editor of Landscope, has worked extensively with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), and has been published in Australasian GEO, and German and Korean GEOs and in literary and scientific journals around the world.

Fishing Sense Philip Weigall

It’s a sad fact of flyfishing that there is no prescriptive manual for ensuring success. It is an activity that defies simple evaluation, leaving even the ‘experts’ scratching their heads from time to time. For example, why is it that a trout will respond to a certain fly one day, but ignore it entirely on another otherwise identical day? Philip Weigall attempts to answer this question and many more in this engaging book. It is a book of ‘flyfishing truths’, a collection of techniques, ideas, concepts, knowledge and equipment that, to the best of his objective observations over many decades spent with a rod in hand, honestly seem to matter when it comes to catching trout.

About the Author Philip Weigall is regarded as one of Australia’s leading authorities on flyfishing — as a guide, author, editor of Flyfisher magazine, leading writer and advisor on fisheries matters to government agencies.

Fishing Season Philip Weigall Let Philip Weigall transport you to your favourite river with this beautifully illustrated tribute to the art of fly fishing … Avid anglers will find plenty to love in Fishing Season, but this is a book that also appeals to a wider audience, opening the door to a world few of us experience. Lively, entertaining anecdotes, whether lovingly remembered or wryly bemoaned, will have you itching to pick up a rod and undertake your own adventure. 195 x 135 mm, cased & jacketed, 196 pages, full colour. $A 34.99, $NZ 39.99 978-1-921497-23-0

‘Philip Weigall is obviously an accomplished angler but his ability with the pen, rather than the rod, is the making of this book.’ — Darryl Crimp ‘Fishing Season is ... extremely well crafted, full of creative and vibrant writing. Phil’s well-honed style is tried and tested, and Fishing Season is true to his reputation as a leading flyfishing author in Australia.’ — Daniel Hackett, Riverfly Tasmania

ART

William Dobell An artist’s life Elizabeth Donaldson This exquisitely produced book is a celebration of the life and work of William Dobell, considered to be one of Australia’s greatest artists and the first to win both the Wynne Prize for landscape and the Archibald Prize for portraiture in the same year. However, William Dobell was a quintessential Australian — more at home in the local pub with his friends than on the international art stage. He was also no stranger to controversy, famously being sued by fellow competitors after winning the Archibald Prize in 1943. Lavishly illustrated with artworks, personal photographs and newspaper clippings, William Dobell: An Artist’s Life paints a compelling portrait of both the man and the artist.

Journeys from the golden age of New Zealand railways Graham Hutchins Last Train to Paradise describes the halcyon days of New Zealand rail, some of which the author was fortunate enough to experience personally. The ‘name’ trains and journeys cover a considerable period of New Zealand’s history, from the late 1800s, through the ‘golden’ era of train travel (the first four decades of the 20th century). Among the special journeys covered are the Prince of Wales’ royal progress through New Zealand in 1920; travelling the Rotorua Limited to take the waters in 1930; and boarding the ‘Test Match Special’ to enjoy the rugby in 1956. The book also includes a wide variety of fascinating and unfamiliar photographs, not just of the trains themselves but also of the characters who travelled in them.

Who Said That First? The curious origins of common words and phrases Max Cryer Believe it or not, this is probably the first book to attempt to identify the original sources of some of the English language’s most common expressions. We might think we know who first said famous for fifteen minutes, annus horribilis, the cold war, the mile high club and let them eat cake. It’s a no brainer, you might say, but Max Cryer has a surprise or two in store for you. In this very readable book, he explores the origins of hundreds of expressions we use and hear every day – and comes up with some surprising findings.

WITNESS TO HISTORY

Kyra The life and loves of a young actress in Stalin’s Russia Kyra Petrovskaya Born in the years following the turmoil of the Russian Revolution, Kyra Petrovskaya should have enjoyed all the trappings of a Russian princess but instead grew up oblivious to her noble heritage. Kyra’s astute observations of the events she experiences and the people she meets (among them Joseph Stalin, as well as his son Vassily) assist in creating a compelling portrait of a young woman’s extraordinary life set against the backdrop of events that changed the course of history.

About the Author Kyra Petrovskaya was born in the Crimea, daughter of a Russian Prince. Her ensuing life as an actress, singer, nurse and second lieutenant in the Soviet Army during World War II (undertaking a daring sniper mission to kill a Nazi soldier) provided rich material for her autobiography. Now in her nineties, Kyra lives in America and is the author of fourteen books.
