            When extreme endurance athlete, Lisa Tamati, was confronted with the hardest challenge of her life, she fought with everything she had. Her beloved mother, Isobel, had suffered a huge aneurysm and stroke and was left with massive brain damage; she was like a baby in a woman's bod...y. The prognosis was dire. There was very little hope that she would ever have any quality of life again. But Lisa is a fighter and stubborn. She absolutely refused to accept the words of the medical fraternity and instead decided that she was going to get her mother back or die trying. This book tells of the horrors, despair, hope, love, and incredible experiences and insights of that journey. It shares the difficulties of going against a medical system that has major problems and limitations. Amongst the darkest times were moments of great laughter and joy. www.lisatamati.com

            In the bestselling tradition of Marley & Me, the moving story of a dog, his human, and the friendship that saved both of their lives - and inspired countless others. When Ben Moon moved to Oregon, he hadn't planned on getting a dog. But when he met the soulful gaze of a husky-pit... bull cross pup in a rescue shelter, Ben instantly felt a connection, and his friendship with the extraordinary Denali was born. The two friends set out on the road together, on an adventure that would take them across the American west and through some of the best years of their lives. When Ben was diagnosed with colorectal cancer at age 29, Denali never once left his side until the two adventurers were back out surfing and climbing crags. It was only a short time later that Denali was struck by the same disease, and Ben had the chance to return the favor. With the help of a couple of filmmaker friends, Ben made a short film as a tribute to the dog he admits helped form him into an adult. It was a labour of love that struck a chord worldwide, viewed by more than 15 million people, and continues to touch new audiences. Denali is the story of a powerful friendship that shaped Ben and Denali's lives - and inspired countless others - showing the power of the strength and love that we give and receive when we have our friends by our side.

            The Power of Suffering is psychologist David Roland's personal investigation into the nature of human suffering. When our world is turned upside down, what does it do to us, how do we survive it, and, most importantly, how can we grow as a result? David takes the lived experience... of eleven incredible people and follows them along each step of their journey from crisis through to acceptance and triumph. Within each story, David draws on his own experience of life-altering trauma and clinical research to offer insights we all can gain from. Each life story examined is a moving testimony of the human spirit's ability to rise and rise again - an executive tragically loses his family in a car crash and finds healing in the rehabilitation of wildlife, a teenage victim of domestic violence becomes a fierce advocate for abused women and brain-injured youth, a football superstar overcomes bigotry and dyslexia to forge a career in acting, a mother experiences the aching depth of love lost after her teenage child's life is tragically cut short. These are but a few of the intimately told stories, all pointing to a path through the storm and beyond. The Power of Suffering is a revelatory account of how the darkest night can lead to the most profound dawn.

            She couldn't have been more than seven or eight years old. Go ahead, ask your question, her father urged, nudging her forward. She smiled shyly and said, You're my hero. Who's yours? Many people-especially girls-have asked us that same question over the years. It's one of our fav...orite topics. HILLARY: Growing up, I knew hardly any women who worked outside the home. So I looked to my mother, my teachers, and the pages of Life magazine for inspiration. After learning that Amelia Earhart kept a scrapbook with newspaper articles about successful women in male-dominated jobs, I started a scrapbook of my own. Long after I stopped clipping articles, I continued to seek out stories of women who seemed to be redefining what was possible. CHELSEA: This book is the continuation of a conversation the two of us have been having since I was little. For me, too, my mom was a hero; so were my grandmothers. My early teachers were also women. But I grew up in a world very different from theirs. My pediatrician was a woman, and so was the first mayor of Little Rock who I remember from my childhood. Most of my close friends' moms worked outside the home as nurses, doctors, teachers, professors, and in business. And women were going into space and breaking records here on Earth. Ensuring the rights and opportunities of women and girls remains a big piece of the unfinished business of the twenty-first century. While there's a lot of work to do, we know that throughout history and around the globe women have overcome the toughest resistance imaginable to win victories that have made progress possible for all of us. That is the achievement of each of the women in this book. So how did they do it? The answers are as unique as the women themselves. Civil rights activist Dorothy Height, LGBTQ trailblazer Edie Windsor, and swimmer Diana Nyad kept pushing forward, no matter what. Writers like Rachel Carson and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie named something no one had dared talk about before. Historia

            Fake: A startling true story of love in a world of liars, cheats, narcissists, fantasists and phonies (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            In early 2017, Good Weekend magazine published Stephanie?s article The Great Pretender about her experience with a sinister romantic conman. She thought the story was over. But it was only just beginning. Hundreds of readers wrote to her, telling of similar experiences. A dozen o...r more people recognised the man in the story and wanted to tell Stephanie what they knew about him. She formed a connection with 'the other woman? who also wanted to share her story. Fake is a powerful, richly layered investigative memoir, drawing on Stephanie?s personal story, stories of other women who have been in similar, emotionally abusive relationships; and expert voices. Fake is a story for our times but is timeless too, exploring universal themes - the intensely complex and neurotic story of raw human need. The backstory- In her mid 40s, Stephanie had been coming to grips with an unhappy reality familiar to millions of other women around the world- she would not now ever have the children she had hoped for and it was possible she might never find the soulmate that her mother and society?s embedded princess mythology had led her to believe would one day be hers. Then, through an online dating site, she met 'Scott?. An exhilarating romance began. He said he was a former architect who now had a sheep farm. He had a love for the environment and seemed a compassionate, truthful and decent man. He talked about their future together. But as the months wore on, his behaviour became increasingly erratic. Stephanie grappled with depression and anxiety as a result. Cancellation followed cancellation- he?d been poisoned by sheep drench; his dog had been bitten by a snake; his crazy ex-wife had failed to collect his son from the school disco; his business partners were demanding a meeting. There were red flags, but Stephanie was addicted to hope, immersed in dreams of the future she hoped to share with him. One day, Scott failed to turn up for an interstate flight to the wedding he was to atten
