              A unique insight into the mind of one of the world's most extraordinary thinkers. Undoubtedly the most famous scientist on the planet and the very face of physics over the last half-century, Stephen Hawking is remarkable for many reasons. Not least because he has continued to str...ive to achieve so much while being hindered by debilitating illness. He has demonstrated categorically that if you put your mind to it, you can achieve anything, no matter your physical state. Of course, it helps if you happen to possess a mind such as his. His work on black holes put him on the map, and he became globally famous for his A Brief History of Time, communicating the most difficult scientific ideas at a period when he'd lost the ability to speak. How to Think Like Stephen Hawking reveals the key motivations, desires and philosophies that make Hawking one of the world's most enduring talents. Studying how he overcame great adversity, fought his demons as well as his detractors and looked back to the origins of the universe, and with quotes and passages by and about him, you too can learn to think like the man who claims he can think in eleven dimensions. Other books in the series include: How to Think Like Sherlock, How to Think Like Churchill and How to Think Like Steve Jobs

              Buddhism for the Unbelievably Busy (Paperback, Large type / large print edition)

              Dear Reader - This is not a book about coping with unbelievable busyness. It's a book about making it stop. What if I told you that a lot of what keeps you unbelievably busy is not only pointless, but avoidable, nonsensical and entirely driven by your own fears, insecurities and ...ego? You'd probably want to slap me, if you could find the time, right? Don't worry, I was once just like you: exhausted, harried, overcommitted and flummoxed as to what to cut back on. I'm not completely cured, but for the first time in years I have room to breathe and to think about what kind of life I really want to live. And I have Buddhism to thank for this. In this book I've compiled the teachings, ideas and practices that got me to this point. Buddhism helped me dig deep to discover why I was determined to do so much, and why I was so afraid to stand still and be alone with myself. It's not hippy-trippy stuff, believe me. Buddhism is just as relevant and practical in our modern world as it's ever been. As crazy as it sounds, I'm asking you to add one more thing to your list today: read this book, and let it help you free yourself from the grind of your unbelievable busyness. Live the peaceful life you know you deserve and be the person you want to be. Meshel Laurie is a television and radio presenter, newspaper columnist, podcaster and official ambassador of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. She is the author of The Fence-Painting Fortnight of Destiny and Buddhism for Break-ups.

              It's no secret that dogs have indomitable spirits, that they're tireless workers and have boundless energy. But it's when everything seems hopeless that their grit and determination really shines through. Whether sick or injured, lost or abandoned, recovering from cruelty or negl...ect, it's the underdogs of the world who have the most to teach us. Dogs like Jake the bulldog, who was found unresponsive in a burning house but was revived by puppy CPR and now serves as a mascot for the fire crew that saved his life; Guy the beagle, discovered alone in the woods, desperately underweight, only to be adopted by Meghan Markle and become a four-legged part of the royal family; and Maggie, blinded by eye infections and shot 17 times, but still living her life with such relentless positivity that she provides support to stressed-out students and aged-care residents. Miracle Mutts shares the stories of miraculous dogs like these, dogs who conquered seemingly insurmountable odds, dogs whose futures seemed bleak, dogs that weren't expected to make it - but triumphed and thrived in the face of incredible adversity.

              Henry Markram is the Elon Musk of neuroscience, the man behind the billion-dollar Blue Brain Project to build a supercomputer model of the brain. He has set the goal of decoding all disturbances of the mind within a generation. This quest is personal for him. The driving force be...hind his grand ambition has been his son Kai, who suffers from autism. Raising Kai made Henry Markram question all that he thought he knew about neuroscience, and then inspired his groundbreaking research that would upend the conventional wisdom about autism, expressed in his now-famous theory of Intense World Syndrome.When Kai was first diagnosed, his father consulted studies and experts. He knew as much about the human brain as almost anyone but still felt as helpless as any parent confronted with this condition in his child. What's more, the scientific consensus that autism was a deficit of empathy didn't mesh with Markram's experience of his son. He became convinced that the disorder, which has seen a 657 per cent increase in diagnoses over the past decade, was fundamentally misunderstood....

              To Dave, the posting to Barrabine was exactly what he'd wanted - it was a town on the edge, the wild west. There would be excitement, mystery and intrigue here. Everything a detective looked for.' Detective Dave Burrows' first posting to the far west goldfields town of Barrabine ...in 1997 holds everything he's looking for, but Melinda, his wife of two weeks, is devastated at leaving behind her family, friends and career. More comfortable in heels than RM Williams, Melinda walked away from her much-loved job in the city as a paediatric nurse to follow Dave into the bush. Dave settles in easily to the plain-speaking toughness of his new town, determined to do well, knowing that Barrabine could be his stepping stone into the elite stock squad. But will his marriage last the distance? As Dave investigates reports of mysterious late-night trespassing, a missing person, and guns being drawn on strangers, a local prospector phones in with horrific news that could hold the key to everything. Fleur McDonald's bestselling rural storytelling takes her popular detective, Dave Burrows, back to his compelling and exciting beginnings.

              We often try to avoid the painful trials in life. After all, we would prefer to live our Christian lives from victorious moment to victorious moment. But the apostle Peter has challenged us to look at our trials differently: ''Instead, be very glad-for these trials make you partn...ers with Christ in his suffering, so that you will have the wonderful joy of seeing his glory when it is revealed to all the world'' (1 Peter 4:13, NLT). As we embrace our partnership in Christ's suffering and fully surrender our lives to His purposes, this wonderful joy in Christ is ours!

              The Impossible Climb: Alex Honnold, El Capitan, and the Climbing Life (Paperback, Large type / large print edition)

              One slip, one false move, one missed toehold, and you're dead. On 3 June 2017, veteran adventure journalist and professional climber Mark Synnott was in Yosemite to witness something that only a handful of people knew was about to occur: the most famous climber in the world, Alex... Honnold, was going to attempt to summit one of the world's most challenging ascents: a route called Freerider on the notorious rock formation, El Capitan. It is an extraordinarily dangerous and difficult climb, and yet Honnold was going to do it 'free-solo'. Meaning no help. No climbing partner. No equipment. No rope. Where a single small mistake would mean certain death. To most, it would be an insane proposition. But most are not Alex Honnold, and few know this better than Mark Synnott, which is why National Geographic sent him there to cover the story. In The Impossible Climb, Mark Synnott uses his own career as a professional climber, its intersection with that of Alex Honnold and the lead-up to Honnold's historic ascent to paint a insider portrait of the elite climbing community, exploring what motivates them, the paradoxical drive to keep the sport pure and at the same time to fund climbs, and the role that awareness of mortality plays in the endeavour. We watch through Mark's eyes as Alex plots, trains and attempts his heart-stopping free solo ascent. Ultimately this is a story not only about climbing but about what makes us human, how we respond to fear and our drive to transcend the inevitability of death. 'Mark Synnott's The Impossible Climb is to climbing what William Finnegan's Barbarian Days is to surfing.' John Long, pioneer of 'free solo' rock climbing 'Immensely enjoyable . . . What motivated Honnold to free climb El Capitan without a rope? ''Because it's there'' doesn't come close to explaining it. Synnott's The Impossible Climb does.' Andy Hall, author of Denali's Howl
