January 2017 Sitting in the apartment in Canberra wondering how long TV will be relevant for with so much access to streamed content. Even on my Sunday walk I listened to Le Mans Radio from overseas to get a radio coverage of the Bathurst 12 Hour Race. Great coverage. I notice our State Government has been instrumental in landing Alibaba to commence activity in Victoria – what planet are state Governments on and what product is actually created by an online equivalent to Amazon; and no screaming from the authors or publishers over this – probably it needed to be located in Sydney to get some notice? Enough; we have so many distractions from buying books locally. I also note the State Government has allowed a free hit for certain publishers for the entry costs to the State Premiers Literary prize as administered by the Wheeler Centre. What sort of level playing field is this? When I return from my next weeks on the road I will make contact with the relevant department to – 'please explain’ how do I tell our about 1000 publishers they are relevant even though they are not members of the Small Press Network. Not a rant – just wanting some basic fairness not disintermediation. Books. Being back on the road it enables me to read from those treasured PDF’s the publishers send me. I am delighted to announce that ETT will be bringing back into print the Robyn Davidson – Travelling Light. Whilst I had watched Tracks as a movie and knew of her from years ago I had really no idea as to her Queensland background around Miles and Nambour. How places like Nambour and its neighbouring town Buderim have changed – no more the fire burning the sugar cane, no more cane laden trains down the main street just plenty of apartments and shopping centres laden with imported goods. Travelling Light has been out of print for years and there is a whole generation of readers ready to read her stories of life, change and a touch of anger with how we have treated some of our people. Please read or ask for a reading copy. Oddly in a weekend or so I will be at the start of the Camel Lady trail as I am leaving Brisbane on a Saturday – going via Alice and starting in Adelaide the next Monday. Do we have any bookshops in Alice Springs? The other outstanding book is Personal Best by Josh Black. Josh is an ex North Shore boy who embarked on life changing ways some years ago. I have not met him yet, however the book reminds me of those moments when you are reading – say Malcolm Gladwell and you have a Gladwell moment – Personal Best does the same to me. I got so excited the other Sunday night when Roger Federer won the Australian Open as Roger is one of the chapters in the book. If you want to be

Words From The Wise a high performance manager, sports person, or simply want to take leadership from some exceptional case stories then read Personal Best. We got the final PDF of the much awaited book by Jackson Oppy called When Hell Freezes Over a story of Ice addiction by a reformed addict. All true. Media will be by Debbie McInnes and should be very strong. Tom Elliot has also written a foreword. I think we all know drug victims and feel so sorry for the system that has to humanly deal with them. It makes me more content with our taxes serving the needs of a community. With the growth of pure play online book vendors we are trying to encourage more Omni players to take a feed from us. I now realise how valuable they are because it has that days in stocks, is accurate with newly loaded agencies and current titles and it is free and supplied daily. Those businesses who use the file seem to have more special orders than those who don’t. The list is almost all Australian authored content - we are not the local leg of a global conglomerate and the subsequent pricing. Our January sales were ok, not as strong as 2016, however the books were different – we did not invoice almost 2000 copies of Moroccan Soup Bar this year, and our export sales were down for known reasons. Speaking of export I should run some reports on what share it is of our business with Australian authors. So am I optimistic? Sure am as the joy of reading just simply exceeds all other form of entertainment. By the way I bumped into Albert Ullin last week and Max Oliver, Albert owned the wonderful Little Bookroom and was a bookseller to look up to with fond memories. He was likely to have been our first chain bookseller in Melbourne by having stores in Camberwell, South Yarra and Equitable Place Melbourne at the same time. Max when he worked in Melbourne worked with Herb Strehlen in the glory days of Robertson & Mullins / Angus & Robertson Read broadly – sell well DJ PS; This month’s window display winner is the National Library Bookshop in Canberra for the Pup Art single copy showing and I could not resist the dump holding the employee feedback container outside a Melbourne business last week.

The spread of crystal methamphetamine use sees more and more families face a horrifying reality ‐ their child or  spouse or parent is an addict. Their world is a hell where Ice rules and it is far from OK. Ice took families, society and the drug‐addiction treatment sector by surprise. Young users often bypassed alcohol,  'soft' and party drug use, so the first mind‐altering substance they try is ice, the world's strongest stimulant. A new  kind of mature addict emerged, a drug‐using individual who seemed to manage to navigate life normally before, and  then suddenly abandoned everything. People become withered, psychotic, mumbling ghosts. The speed of their  journey broke all previous records. Their unmanageability became legendary. The core of this book is not the drug, but the people: the addict who desperately needs help, and the people around  the addict who need clear and practical information about the solution. With the right treatment, addicts do recover.

Author Information Jackson Oppy was an addict to drugs for 15 years, to ice for the last nine of them. His family experienced the trauma  that comes with having a loved one in the grip of addiction, believing there was there was no way out, and feeling  hopeless. After many attempts to stop, after losing everything, Jackson entered recovery at age 35 and now lives  alcohol‐ and drug‐free. He uses his experience to help other addicts. In his current role at The Hader Clinic, he deals  with addicts and their families every day, using his intimate knowledge of the problem and the solution.

We are living beneath our potential, allowing our doubts and anxieties to close us within an ever‐tightening circle of possibility.  We are too willing to accept things as they are. Though we might daydream about things as they might be, we do less than we  could to realize our potential, to live the life that is available to us if only we will reach out and take it. Personal Best will help you  unlock your potential by pointing you towards the kind of mental strengths that drive the performance of some of the world's  greatest athletes. Those seeking to improve their personal, professional, or athletic outcomes can adopt these habits. The 10  championship virtues, which cover everything from tenacity and dedication to love and belief, are the mental (not physical)  qualities. We make them not a part of our lives but of ourselves. These qualities power elite‐level performance, and they can  power change in your life. Through exceptional storytelling and practical lessons, Josh Black will guide you towards your own  transformative trigger moment. The profiles of courage and endurance contained in this book move from the elation of victory to  the agony of defeat, and they will provide you with the tools you need to both face and overcome life's seemingly  insurmountable obstacles on the way to spectacular success. Author Information Born in Sydney, Australia in 1975, Josh Black was fascinated with sport from an early age. His mile-wide competitive streak saw him compete in a number of sports before he had reached double digits, and he continued to push himself into athletic pursuits of all kinds through his teenage years. As soon as he was able, Josh began to travel the world, broadening his perspective and gaining important professional experience in international markets. Through his high-ranking positions with globally leading brands like Gatorade, PepsiCo and GroupM, he has made his living exploring the intersection between sport and business, always paying particularly close attention to what makes high performers tick. Today, Josh has no fixed address and he is constantly on the move, spending more than 250 days out of the year away from Hong Kong where he has an office. His wanderlust has taken him to nearly every corner of the world, and each time he touches down he finds new experiences and sources of inspiration. Exposure to some of the world’s best athletes changed Josh’s life. By adopting some of the championship virtues, he felt himself becoming a better performer and a better person. He has been using this knowledge to help people in emerging markets improve their lives through physical and mental fitness, and he is now ready and determined to share what he has learned with the world. Josh can be contacted through his website, joshblackhome.com, or you can email him at josh@247xfitness.com.

When "sold" isn't sold and "Off‐the‐Plan" is just "off" Real Estate Escapes is a collection of timeless property parables where not all agents, solicitors and conveyancers are  created equal, and where not all escapes are successful.

Since the term Emotional Intelligence was first coined in 1990 by noted psychologists Peter Salovey and John D.  Mayer, extensive and ongoing research has been ongoing and has consistently demonstrated the staggeringly  significant role emotional intelligence plays in predicting future success and positive business outcomes. Importantly it  has been shown to be the single most important factor in the makeup of any successful professional, be it in sales or  any other field of endeavour. Specific research undertaken by global, key opinion leader Daniel Goleman has shown that Emotional Intelligence is  not only the most powerful predictor of success in the workplace, but is twice as important as the combined value of  Intelligence Quotient (I.Q) and Technical Skill combined. This book takes the most efficient and proven sales techniques and strategic guidelines whilst seamlessly combining  them with the key driving principles for Emotional Intelligence, to deliver a practical, step by step guide that is logically set out, intuitive to follow and universally applicable to any sales role within any market place. A clear step forward in sales training which has achieved the perfect alignment between selling and emotional intelligence skills.

This Is My Country looks at people standing on the precipice of life: disenfranchised, neglected and now threatened  with displacement. It is a permanent record intended to bring attention to the plight of Aboriginal communities under  threat. It will serve as a call to Australian society to support their First People and end the displacement of their  communities. This Is My Country is a hard cover book of 120 pages with 70 black and white photographs and texts from Aboriginal  academics and activists. It is printed in a hardbound edition on 170 gsm paper at Ofset Yapimevi in Istanbul where all  of FotoEvidence's high quality books are produced.

With a passion deeply rooted in humanitarian causes, her photography is often confronting and provocative to evoke a powerful message, telling people’s stories firstly at a community level and then to provide a conduit for communication between different cultures on a global platform. Born in Holland, in her formative years Ingetje was always documenting the life of people around her, ultimately combining her passion for photography and travel to where her work now takes her around the globe. When not travelling, she calls Broome her home on the vast and wildly beautiful West Coast of Australia.

The Man from Talalaivka is the gripping story of a man torn between love for his country and the harsh reality of  totalitarian rule... The story of a man forced to change countries through the battles of two totalitarian tyrants... In an idyllic Kylapchin village, 200 kilometres north‐east of Kiev, in Ukraine's Sumskaya Oblast, a young man's life was  overturned by the brutality of the Stalinist regime. It was 1929: Lenin had died five years earlier, his followers  gradually scattering or succumbing to Secretary General Stalin's ruthless will. Upheaval took on a sinister new dimension as 'collectivisation' of farms was enforced throughout Stalin's new Russian  empire; no greater effects of which were felt than by Peter and his family, along with millions of others in the Ukraine. Stalin's goal‐to break and destroy the independence of Ukrainian farmers‐did ultimately succeed. But at massive cost.  Most were herded to 'collective farms', or kolkhozes. Others‐like Peter's parents Yosef and Palasha‐were gaoled on  pretext of being 'kulaks' (wealthy farmers), then sentenced to five years' imprisonment in a Siberian labour camp. It  was a one‐way ticket to a slow death.  Peter risked his life‐and perhaps even the safety of his young family‐and did the unthinkable: he forged travel  documents and journeyed to the Siberian snow‐bound prison camp in which his parents were incarcerated. The  journey, and his capture by NKVD agents, almost cost him his life. Miraculously, he returned, changed by the haunting  experience...

I have been blessed with three sons and despite the fact that they are independent, functioning young men, I still  found myself trying to advise them on how to live their lives ‐ after all I am older, wiser and have had more experience  in this life. But naturally they didn't need or want my input. My sons tell me that I always have an 'angle' ‐ that I am always scheming to do things my way. How right they are. An  idea was beginning...  Last year for Mothers' Day I suggested that we reverse the usual procedure ‐ instead of me being the recipient of a  gift, I would give each of them a gift with all my love.  I duly gave a copy of this to each of them, and so my book was born! How marvellous it was to be able to lavish and impart my pearls of wisdom without fear of being ignored or  interrupted with a dismissive wave of the hand.  What joy! What unbridled joy! Their individual responses were both touching and amusing. From the first son there was a rapid blinking of his eyes  because 'the sun was too bright'. The second response was a reluctant broad smile from ear to ear of affirmation. The  third and most rewarding was, 'Mum, even though this is a bunch of old‐fashioned hog‐wash, I'm going to keep it safe  and pass it on to my own kids one day'. BINGO!

The story of the first cadet-midshipmen to join the Royal Australian Naval College is without parallel. In 1913 twenty-eight thirteen-year-old boys joined the new Navy at a time when Australia was both idealistic and ambitious. The boys were drawn from every State and became known as the ‘Pioneer Class'. Australia's Argonauts is the result of many years' research. It brings together previously unpublished diaries, letters, archival material and photographs. The Pioneer Class bore witness to or were leading actors in the most important events in the Navy’s early history. The most famous member was John Collins, hero of the Sydney-Bartolomeo Colleoni action, who became the first Naval College graduate to be Chief of Naval Staff. The class also included Rupert Long who played a pivotal role in Naval intelligence, Eric Feldt who ran the famous 'Coastwatchers' and Peyton Kimlin who wrote the score for one of Australia's first ballet. But like the argonauts of legend, they faced travails that sometimes consumed them. The book charts the lives of the Pioneer Class from their first days at the Naval College, service with the Grand Fleet in World War I, naval and civilian careers between the wars, their great contribution during World War II and their passing into our history. The Pioneer Class were not only the first, but the greatest class to graduate from the Naval College. Author Information Peter Jones served for 40 years in the Royal Australian Navy rising to the rank of Vice Admiral. Among his seagoing appointments were command of the frigate HMAS Melbourne (1998-99) and the multinational Maritime Interception Force during 2003 Iraq War. Peter is also a naval historian, an Adjunct Professor at the University of NSW (Australian Defence Force Academy) and President of the Australian Naval Institute. While he has edited or contributed to a number of books, Australia's Argonauts will be his first book as sole author.

The Armour of Light is about a truly remarkable Australian, a man who was described by some as a saint, and whose  church rattling and lampooning of his opposition challenged others. Barry Marshall was probably the most well ‐ known Australian priest at the time of his tragic death, in 1970, from a fall which occurred just before his investiture as  the first Australian Principal of Pusey House at Oxford University. He was well known for his total dedication to his priestly life, his ixture of erudition and playfulness, for his work as a  Bush Brother in outback Bourke and his time as chaplain at Trinity College, the University of Melbourne. Barry was  responsible for introducing significant Vatican ll inspired reforms into the Anglican Church in Australia. To the  consternation of his bishops he campaigned against infant baptism, maintaining it was a socially accepted practice  rather than a serious commitment to Christianity, and as such was a harbinger of the demise of the church. Four decades after his death the influence of the Christian church as an institution has indeed greatly diminished in  western society. Despite enormous technological progress and modern development, our society harbours high levels  of depression and suicide, and many are seeking meaning in their lives. Barry Marshall's view of such things and his  prophetic foresight are part of a story which enriches the history of Australian spirituality.

Author Information Dr Nola Firth’s academic work has been in the field of education. She has also published essays and poetry and she  won the Rhonda Jancovic Literary Award for social justice in 2015. Published works include an educational text  entitled Success and Dyslexia and a poetry collection entitled Even if the Sun. Nola is a Churchill Fellow and an  Honorary Fellow at the University of Melbourne and at The Murdoch Childrens Research Institute.

Jim Rigney has been a commercial diver since the age of seventeen. Starting as a harbour diver in northern Tasmania, Jim has  gone on to forge a long and extensive career within the offshore diving industry, taking him all over the world as an air diver,  saturation bell diver, medical technician and diving superintendent. Life of a Diver is a collection of Jim’s experiences and observations from a lifetime within the commercial diving industry, both in  Australia and abroad. It’s the life of a diver who worked on the salvage and survey following the 1975 Tasman Bridge disaster;  who made it a personal mission to establish Australia’s first saturation diving training facility in the 1990s; and who once wanted  to teach an ill‐behaved crew member a lesson and inadvertently created an Internet viral hit in the process. Jim also shares his insights from over forty‐five years in a tough but rewarding industry, and how he has navigated the day to day  challenges that come with off‐shore work — and what improvements can still be made. The Life of a Diver such as Jim Rigney is one of adventure, danger and the search for stimulating work and innovation. Author Information Rigney was born in Burnie, Tasmania in 1953. He commenced his career as a commercial diver at the age of seventeen, following a year working in the underground mines on Tasmania’s west coast so as to finance his diver training and purchase the necessary equipment. Jim progressed from harbor diving and commenced abalone diving in Tasmania in 1972 but became increasingly frustrated with the tedium that abalone diving had to offer, compared to the challenges of the subsea construction industry. Fate would deliver the opportunity to leave the abalone industry and pursue a career as a construction diver when the ill-fated Lake Illawarra struck Hobart’s Tasman Bridge in January of 1975. This incident caused the destruction of a section of bridge and the sinking of the vessel. Jim worked on this project twice, during the early reconstruction and the subsequent removal of the ship’s bow from the riverbed. Soon after this project he was able to fulfil a lifetime ambition to become a diver working in Australia’s offshore oil and gas industry — a role that he still undertakes to this day as the operations manager with one of Asia’s largest commercial diving companies. During his long and extensive career as a commercial diver, Jim has undertaken practically every role available within the industry: air diver, saturation diver, supervisor, diving medical technician and saturation diving superintendent. Jim’s work has provided him with the opportunity to work in virtually all of the world’s oilfields including South East Asia, the Middle East, the subcontinent and the North Sea.

"The depth of emotion Lisa shares in this wonderful book, and her rawness, honesty and sincerity is rare to read. It truly makes The Dawn of Hope an inspirational guide." Dr Peta Stapleton, Clinical and Health Psychologist, Professor Bond University The Dawn of Hope is a book about the power of hope and how learning and practicing self-compassion, self-forgiveness and acceptance, can transform our entire experience of life. Lisa's personal journey is proof that no matter what our stories have been, we all have a choice to change them. Through the awareness and acknowledgment of her own suffering, she shares how this opened her eyes to a new way of viewing herself and then, others. For over twenty years she had hidden an eating disorder, which controlled her world. It took some time to heal but the process made her able to experience the miracles that awaited her once she had the courage to look at herself more deeply. Lisa's insights are not only for those who have suffered from mental illness but for anyone wanting to live a full, happy and meaningful life. Lisa Winneke is a mentor, speaker and workshop facilitator, acknowledged for her raw honesty, compassion and vulnerability. In her presentations - 'The Path Back to Love' - she teaches the powerful practices of self-compassion, forgiveness, kindness and self-love.

In times past there was an Aboriginal man called Cumbo Gunnerah His people called him The Red Kangaroo. He was a clever chief and a mighty fighter (this man from Gunnedah)  Later, the white people of this place called him The Red Chief. It would be hard to find a more satisfying hero than the young warrior Red Kangaroo, who by his mental and physical  prowess became a chief of his tribe ‐ the revered and powerful Red Chief of the Gunnedah district in northern New  South Wales. His story is a first‐rate tale of adventure but it is something more ‐ a true story handed down from  generation to generation by its hero s tribe and given by the last survivor, King Bungaree, to the white settlers of the  district.

Would you risk your long held dreams for a secluded estate beside an olive grove, a creative paradise, and a  mysterious, irresistible newcomer? Set in London and Florence with a third location being 'any place' Meryl, a budding  writer, and Michael a human rights lawyer, become entangled in the world of international crime. Life will never be  quite the same. Will they pick up from where they left, despite the various characters who managed to enter their  lives, or will they let go of the safety they once found in each other's arms? A contemporary story of fractured pasts,  intriguing encounters, insularity, professional harassment and the capacity to live for others.

Author Information Born in South Africa during the apartheid era, Mala Naidoo worked as a teacher of English literature in South Africa  and Australia. She encourages young people to be 'moved' by reading and inspires confidence and compassion  through creative expression. From a very young age, Mala was surrounded by books from the English literary canon.  She also enjoys biographies, autobiographies and contemporary novels, and believes that a good dose of life  experience and fiction has shaped the representation of places, events and characters in her writing.

Life's a gamble. It certainly is for former jockey, Roy Gilbert as he takes the wrong line to the finishing post. His premature death  comes to the attention of D.I. John Mahoney and the Serious Crimes Squad. The subsequent investigation very soon  becomes intertwined with the gruesome slaying of a retired bookmaker. As Mahoney and his team attempt to make headway they encounter unexpected opposition from their Federal  counterparts. Suspects are thin on the ground but the investigators doggedly press on in their quest to make sense of  the forensic evidence. Turmoil in the personal sphere does little to help Mahoney track down the killers. The third instalment in this series turns the spotlight on the damage infl icted by the prevalence of gambling in  modern Australia. Mahoney and his colleagues soon realise that the glamour is cursory and the stakes are all too high.

Something is very rotten in the state of Tasmania. Brad Finch, the marquee player of the Tassie Devils Football Club, is the victim at the heart of a new murder mystery. Intense media scrutiny, interfering superior officers, and corrupt business interests all threaten to derail the homicide investigation conducted by the Serious Crimes Squad. Forensic analysis, dogged detective work, and inspiration may prove insufficient in the search for the true perpetrators. The team must face unpalatable truths about the nature of professional sport and the exercise of power in modern Australian society. Detective Inspector John Mahoney, the hero of this international crime series of police procedurals, is an outsider in his hometown of Hobart. Disillusioned by his private life and shocked by the corruption he unearths, he queries his capacity to continue in the job. He must decide if he has the courage to "speak truth to power".

Tasmania is in trouble. While mainland Australia surges through the backwash of the GFC the island state is struggling. Political infighting, bureaucratic ineptitude and a lack of investment have curtailed progress. Too many people are lodging on 'Struggle Street'. D.I. John Mahoney knows this as well as anyone. Of more immediate concern to him is the brutal murder of a prominent business leader. The scale of public interest is high and the Serious Crimes Squad must make headway fast. As the investigation proceeds it becomes clear that whoever is behind the barbarity is sending a message to the whole community. Another homicide quickly follows and pressure mounts as they seek to unravel the trail of clues.

It is almost two years since wildfires ravaged the tiny town of Bullock, and Melbourne journalist, Georgie Harvey, is on  assignment in the recovering town to write a feature story on the anniversary of the tragedy. In nearby Daylesford, police officer, John Franklin, is investigating a spree of vandalism and burglaries, while champing  to trade his uniform for the plain clothes of a detective. When Georgie's story and Franklin's cases collide, she not only finds herself back in conflict with the man she's been  trying to forget since their first encounter, but she uncovers the truth about how the fires started ‐ a truth no‐one is  wanting to believe. "Sandi Wallace has mastered rural crime." B. Michael Radburn, author of The Falls "A gripping twist on the bushfire threat all Australians live with." Jaye Ford, author Darkest Place

A close‐knit group of five tough and experienced construction workers, who have contracted at some of the biggest  projects in the Southern Hemisphere, are at a secret meeting called by Greg, their leader of sorts. Peter, Rangi, Dave  and Bill are all listening intently as Greg lays out his ingenious scheme. Astounded at the audacity of the "Project", all  are keen to get it underway.  Each can envisage the part he has to play and each knows that he has the capacity to get it done on time. As Greg has  pointed out, total secrecy must be kept, even from their wives and at all times from any other tradesmen or friends.  Of the five men, Peter will have the biggest challenge in keeping it from the ever‐alert friends he has in the Stock  Exchange while still dealing with them.  "It's a giant con,' Greg concludes, 'and if we pull it off you will all be rather wealthy ‐ it's all or nothing." Author Information Born in 1938 to a New Zealand Father and a Irish Mother who was born in New Zealand, life was tough. A traditional family, we lived, loved and suffered all things that were thrown our way as all families did during that time. Dropping out of school at the age of 15, my father taught me the tough tricks in life and I had to apply myself to a lot of different skills to help support the family. After time as the little shit-kicker, I decided it was time to apply myself and   took on the apprenticeship of a boilermaker – and there, the history is written. This I knew was to be my path … rugby league stepped in to help … but overall, I became the person I am because of this one choice that I made. This story is part of my journey … many in the industry would understand this story. Many may have been in similar situations. Some may still be in similar situations. This story is a path that we can all take …

Come on! Be daring and take a journey to faraway places. These are not the usual faraway places and these faraway  places will leave you with more than just bragging rights. Faraway Places goes to dark and dingy places that the faint‐ hearted might wish are truly faraway. But are they? Not when you take a crazed trip with an odd‐ball who dreams of a  faraway place all the while he is on a slow‐burn to insanity. Maybe he can solve the problem of living in a caravan  alongside a garbage tip with a foul‐mouthed significant other and a companion dog. That's not an easy problem to  solve when you lack initiative. Perhaps the frozen wastelands of pre‐revolutionary Russia are a change of location but  still you'll find that it's that kind of faraway place where many bizarre things could be possible: dog‐headed people  might exist, a nasty conman can become a tsar and if you want to save your skin, there are people you should avoid. If  that's not enough, then waiting to be solved is the provenance of two mysterious trunks and their contents in the  basement of St Petersburg's Hermitage. Finally, a misconstruction about a killing on an isolated farm in a British colony in 1815 leads to disastrous  consequences. Decent men can commit abominable acts and criminals can be decent. In this faraway place, it's brutal  times all round—brutal times for the original native inhabitants, for settlers and their women, and for the convicts and  child convicts.

A SHUTDOWN IN AMMONIA Continues the adventure... The best laid plans of mice and men, and indeed of engineers and  managers, do often go askew, thus, as the story of the Muddy River Bay Ammonia Factory continues we find the engineer  wants to concentrate on preparing for the total shutdown for their first all‐over, complete, maintenance overhaul and  inspection, and he throws the planning job to his junior engineers. But his manager needs to have work done which will  increase sales, hence revenue and take them closer to profitability, so the juniors have to be shifted to that urgent work. And the manager's life is troubled by absence of two important staff, can he expect the Production Manager and the  Marketing manager will return? The unions are also contributing a share of concerns, fussing about safety with a large  temporary workforce coming in for the shutdown. Directors continue in their merry way, enjoying morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. The Marketing Director has a bright  idea and promotes it, some of his associates like it, one doesn't. Who will win this contest? Will there be any progress towards the Chief's aim of getting new blood into Head Office? "The author brings to this stage  in the Muddy Waters saga his wealth of personal experience from a multiplicity of perspectives which is mirrored in the  career path of Al Grassy, the Production Engineer. What is also highlighted is the gulf [which, in the real world and across  most disciplines, is almost endemic] between 'one discipline' graduates who not only progress  Author Information Ron Ward is a Sydney resident, he and wife Brenda live in a bushland suburb, in a house they built many years ago. Their son, an Associate Professor at the University of New South Wales, also lives in Sydney. He has worked as an apprentice, tradesman, draftsman, project engineer, maintenance engineer, factory manager, consulting engineer, academic, and accident investigator on the way to his present position as a company director.

A Beginning in Ammonia

Continues the adventure... Which began as getting a project approved And then building an ammonia‐based fertilizer factory. There's keeping the Head Office satisfied  And controlling a group of smart people at several levels Plus  covering what government regulations require Then getting the factory built is not the end of the job After that there's commissioning, making it work And all the odds and ends of left‐over details to be completed  Including making the contractor finishes what he's paid to do And then there's company accounts to be signed off After all that we hope we have a reasonably happy "working  family" Because people are an essential part of running a  business So although this is about engineering and management It's a  story about people.

A Project in Ammonia is an adventure in physical management  and social engineering and contradicts turgeon's Law (ninety  percent of everything is crud) by exploring what happens when  an unlikely group of four people, two Australians, one English  and one French‐Israeli, fight their way through the  bureaucratic maze of their employer, assisted behind the  scenes by the Chief Executive, and get what they want: exile to  a colony, to build a fertilizer factory there. All against the  preferences of the company's directors who persistently do  what they can to upset the exiles' work, including adding an  American colonist to the team, a person expected to be  incompatible with the others.

So the Ammonia Factory at Muddy River Bay is now operating.  Of course, now the hard slog of building it, and the excitement  of commissioning it, are over, everyone expects life will be  quieter.

But there's always something to bother a manager, such as  getting sales up to match production, and the behaviour of the  people close to the manager, and the enterprising nature of  junior engineers, and what comes from the organisation levels  above him, all causing a mix of good results and headaches.  And that's some of what being a manager is all about. Yes  that's some of it, but the work around a manager causes other  events to occur, so there's no end to what circumstances can  throw up.

This is the story of Shield, a woman whose life adversities have been a testimony to God's mercy and grace, bringing  her ever closer to Him and convincing her that God watches over each one of us and guides us if we turn to Him. Shield's trials include her struggle to forgive her mother for three attempts of aborting her, being born with a  deformed hand which led to bullying, experiencing demonic forces and haunting in her teens, spells of depression, a  life‐threatening genetic disease and raising a child with autism. Throughout these trials, God was ever present, helping her to overcome the bullying, to find love when it was least  expected, to cure her disease and to transform her life and values through her son's autism. By following God's  calling and leading a Christian lifestyle, she found God had a much greater plan for her than she had ever dreamt of.

First, they came for the world record, now they’re bringing us an exciting and enlightening documentary which details their World Record setting 366 consecutive marathons (while both in their 60’s no less) around Australia and not only covering 15,782kms but also doing it on a raw vegan diet. RAW The Documentary (based from the popular book ‘Raw Can Cure Cancer” by Janette Murray-Wakelin. Brolga Publighing + first published in 2013) sets out to shatter some misconceptions of what one can achieve eating a raw vegan diet. It explores the lives of Janette and Alan as they began to consider the benefits of a raw diet after Janette was diagnosed with cancer and given 6 months to live. Now years on and in their 60’s and healthy as a direct result of their fitness and commitment to ethical diets they want to share the amazing feats they have completed and the experiences along the way – which include the beauty of family, the love they have shared for over 30 years, a lifetime of fitness, the marathons in the great Australian nature encountering cyclones, torrential rain and 44+ degree weather. RAW The Documentary stands to be an informative resource for our awareness of the possibilities achievable on a raw vegan diet and the larger comments on the betterment of the environment, water sources and the considerations of all the species on this planet.

Nellie Kerrison ‐ Relish Mama

"Beautiful food for the home ‐ Great ingredients stirred with love and laughter."  Relish Mama is a celebration of honest, everyday cooking, as shared by Nellie Kerrison in this much‐awaited first  cookbook. Every page has meaning and each recipe is a treasure trove of the food Nellie loves most to share with  family, friends and through her acclaimed cooking school. What started as a little dream of teaching people to cook, to  share her passion and knowledge with others and her warm and generous style of entertaining has grown into a  beautifully written and photographed cookbook. With recipes for every occasion, you will relish this book and feel the  love on each and every page of this stunning debut cookbook. Author Information Food and gatherings were such an enormous part of my childhood. I fell joyously in love with entertaining and throwing parties when I first left home. I relish opening our door and sharing our table and a special meal with others. I love the celebration of honest everyday cooking and that is what my food is all about. When a meal is shared at our table or around our bench, the hectic pace stops! Not only do we enjoy the food and its many flavours, we stop and enjoy each other and all of the unique and incredible things that make us family and friends – how grateful I am that we came to find one another. Sharing food in this way brings a very special richness to my life – it is what make me….well, me. I opened ‘Relish Mama’ very early in 2009 by turning a lifelong dream and passion of offering some of the best cooking classes into a reality. Cliché, it seems, but I followed a dream and have never looked back. Relish Mama is all about celebrating the everyday. It is about celebrating a shared table and simple but honest ingredients with those that choose to share our large kitchen bench and table and those that leave feeling a little more enriched and hopefully, a little more loved, elated and confident. For me, good food and great home cooking is all about the passing on and sharing of knowledge with each other. Don’t hold it close to our chests – let’s share it. No matter how many restaurants I go to, nothing beats home style cooking prepared with love that is served at a table with those I love and who I can share a great laugh with - share myself with. This sort of sharing is good for the soul. It adds a little magic to our days. It is about so much more than the food but good food and a shared table is where the magic truly begins! Happy cooking to you all! Nellie Phone: 03 9762 9100 | Fax 03 9762 9200 Email: orders@dennisjones.com.au

On the streets, under the ground and on the information superhighway, radicals and rebels have made this town their  own. The acclaimed Radical Melbourne revealed the hidden history of the city's first hundred years in what John Pilger  called "a brilliantly original, long overdue unveiling of a great city's true past". Now Radical Melbourne 2: The Enemy Within traverses the same alleys and lanes to uncover a story of secret police  and secret armies, guerrilla artists and underground cells, militant unionists and intransigent peaceniks. From the Cold War to hot jazz, from teenage rioters to Maoist revolutionaries, take a tour through sixty years that  shook Melbourne.

When I was a child, my father went away. He came home only once a year, in the summer for two weeks. He smelled of the sea, my father. That's because he was... A great pirate. The amazing stories Dad tells of life with his pirate crew fire up his young son's imagination. But then, one year, Dad doesn't return home. Now it's his son's turn to make an amazing journey of his own - to find his father. Soon he will discover a secret beyond anything he has imagined so far.

'When I grow up, I want to be like my dad.'

From the award-winning creators of The Little Eskimo, and the acclaimed author of The Bear with the Sword, What is this Thing Called Love? and The Enemy.

'Sam and His Dad' is a joyful and funny celebration of ordinary family life, the little details that excite a child's imagination and the quirky ways they interpret the adult world. It's a book any child can see themselves in and relate to.

Sam's dad is an artist, and Sam's life is full of creativity, exploration and adventure. Serge Bloch's semi-autobiographical picture book shows us life through Sam's eyes, as he plays with his little brother, goes to the park, visits a farm, goes on holiday - all in the company of the long-suffering but affectionate Dad he loves so much.

Written by the winner of France's prestigious Baobab Award, Davide Cali, one of Europe's most innovative writers for children, and illustrated by Anna-Laura Cantone, twice included in the Bologna Children's Book fair illustration competition.

In this funny and entertaining picture book about finding your passion, young Marcolino doesn't want to practise the piano. 'When I was your age, I played for hours,' Mum insists, but Grandfather remembers things rather differently. He helps Marcolino find the musical instrument that's right for him - and it's a real surprise! Created by two of Europe's most acclaimed creators of books for children, Davide Cali and Eric Heliot (France's leading children's illustrator). For readers aged from 4 to 7. 'Cali is nothing if not diverse in his choice of subjects to explore. He treats them with keen perception and creativity. Allied with gifted illustrators, his books are always memorable. Highly recommended.' - Magpies

In the years that followed, Belinda became a big sister to five siblings. After years away from W.A. and over international travel, the Western Australian landscapes are still her favourite. Belinda now lives on Sydney’s northern beaches with her two children, Max and Frances, and her husband, Scott.

Illustrator Information Miša Alexander (pronounced ‘Meesha’) was born in Vancouver, Canada, where she attended the Emily Carr Institute of Art & Design, majoring in graphic design. After her third year, travelling abroad brought her to Australia, where she has remained ever since. Over the last 18 years, she has worked in Byron Bay, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane as well as various design studios internationally. The highlight of her career was working for the United Nations in East Timor in 2002, and in Afghanistan in 2005. Her illustrations and design skills were used to promote community education & social inclusion for voting in their first president and also in creating the ballot papers.

Grandads can be silly and make a lot of noise. So which of these guys would you trust with your toys? An alphabet in rhyme, based on the true lives and faces of some beloved grandpas, oupas and pops!

Author Information After more than fifteen years working as a corporate writer, Andrea Gallagher wrote Superstar Grandmas (and the follow-up, Mega-Rad Grandads) to fulfill a childhood dream of becoming a children’s book author. It was also an opportunity to present a positive image of aging to children. After becoming a mother of two boys, she was re-acquainted with the types of books that she had loved as a child, and now had two in-house test subjects to study and design stories for. Through her children, she was also exposed to a generation of grandparents (more vibrant and active than any other before them) who became the inspiration for her rhymes. Andrea is a lover of old things, a collector of simple treasures, an occasional gardener, and a slightlybroken supermodel (which is also the name of her blog for grown-ups). Based in Brisbane, she enjoys an active, sunny lifestyle, raising her young family. Illustrator Information David Clare has worked for more than thirty years as a commercial graphic artist, and has been mastering oil painting and his love of all things artistic for even longer. Creating the images for Superstar Grandmas has been his first experience of working as an illustrator (as well as his first time working with acrylics for a while), and he is now busy breathing life into the faces for the follow-up book, Mega-Rad Grandads. After being a stay-at-home father during the early years with his three children, he knows a lot about how art can inspire and delight little people and uses this in his method as an illustrator. David lives in Brisbane, where he still works as a graphic artist, as well as teaching art classes in the evenings and enjoying a love of music and sports in any spare time he gets.

The gift of literacy is one of the most important gifts we can give our kids. It can quite literally transform their lives,  giving them the confidence and skills they will need throughout school and into their adult lives. Likewise, poor  literacy and numeracy can have a devastating effect on individuals and on our society. Every year more kids leave  school without the skills they need to achieve their true potential As experienced literacy specialist Fay Tran argues in this timely and important book, no child should leave school  without satisfactory literacy and numeracy skills. The key is to teach them using PHONICS: the simple, effective and  proven method described in this book. Phonics is not only proven by modern academic research to be the most effective way of teaching literacy, it is also  the method embedded at the heart of Australia's new National Curriculum. Armed with the skills and techniques covered in this book, any adult can teach the kids in their care to read. Whether  you're learning phonics for the first time or refreshing your skills, 'Teaching Kids to Read' is an essential resource.

Following a sensational scandal at one of London’s most desired postcodes, Jane and Patrick decide to escape the gossip with a family holiday to Ibiza, their eight-year-old son George in tow. Also on the island that week is a TV reality show involving an eccentric artist, a horny It Girl, a Brazilian footballer and a famous magician. As hapless celebrities are picked off one by one, Jane is desperate to be on the programme, leaving childcare in the not so capable hands of a teenager. One lesbian escapade and an explosive row over hair removal later, the contestants of Ibiza or Bust leave the island with more than sand in places they never knew existed… '...hilariously observed… a much-welcomed comedy of manners.' - Jane Green, New York Times Bestselling author
