              It starts from the premise that neurodiversity (conditions like Autism, ADHD, Dyslexia and the like) is a normal, essential part of human biodiversity - without it we don't get Picasso, Einstein or Greta Thunberg! Yes, neurodiverse kids sometimes require a bit of extra help and p...atience, but they should never be viewed as disordered. Some Brains encourages us all look for our strengths and to understand that brains are like fingerprints - uniquely, wonderfully ours. All brains are special, All brains are smart, All kids have big thoughts, And all kids have big hearts. ALL KIDS ARE SPECIAL - JUST FOLLOW THEIR HEARTS

              IWith all the moxie of an RSL barmaid and the library card of a research fellow, Nelly Thomas has emerged to talk about nothing slighter than the trials of her generation...She's erudite, earthy and entirely unemployable./I IBHelen Razor - The Age /B/I BI/I/B Nelly Thomas has had... a mind-boggling array of jobs from high-level policy and research jobs to dressing as rooster for a fast-food chicken outlet. She's finally found one she likes as a comedian and social commentator. In IWhat Women Want/I Nelly gives a very honest and funny take on life for Australian women in the 21st century. Nelly address all the challenges and opportunities, big and small, facing women today. Through hilarious stories from her own life Nelly gives us a refreshing perspective on just how much life has changed for women of her generation, and tries to answer the question; Iwhat do women want? /I I/I IThe promise of progress - some of it feminist, some of it from other sources - doesn't seem to have been fulfilled. So many modern women seem to feel under pressure rather than free. Some of us are experiencing all this choice, all these options, as a burden. We've all felt that paralysis at the super-market when confronted with 738 varieties of deodorant - what is the difference between the deodorants, is one better than the other, will it harm me, can I afford it, do I even need it? I think that might be a metaphor writ large for an entire generation. We've got a lot of options, but how the hell do we choose?/I -BNelly Thomas /B

              What Women Want (EPUB ebook)

              By Thomas, Nelly

              A funny and moving book that Australian women of all generations will love. With all the moxie of an RSL barmaid and the library card of a research fellow, Nelly Thomas has emerged to talk about nothing slighter than the trials of her generation... She's erudite, earthy and entir...ely unemployable. Helen Razor - The Age (review Melb Comedy Festival) Growing up in post-feminist Australia, Nelly Thomas, one of Australia's most gifted and natural comedians, was told she could 'have it all'. She's giving it a crack - but she still isn't quite sure what 'it' is. What do women want? In pursuit of answers, Thomas has tried being a telemarketer, a professional student, a fast-food worker, a broadcaster, a smoker, a prostitute's confidant, a health advocate, a reality television obsessive, a mother, a partner (or is it girlfriend? lover?), an award-winning comedian, a sex-educator, a Loony Lefty Feminista and a self-confessed fatty boombah. Like many of her generation, she's had a lot of options, yet she's wondering - which do you choose? In this hilarious part-memoir, part-manifesto, Thomas navigates the murky waters of her life and womanhood in the twenty-first century. She tackles the big contemporary issues - career, equality, family, porn, sex, entertainment, obesity, parenting, culture, class, Beyonce's derriere - with customary insight and a wickedly dry wit. A must-read for the modern Aussie woman.
