He'll be Ok: Growing Gorgeous Boys into Good Men, Celie Lashlie
7 Celie Lashlie He'll be Ok: Growing Gorgeous Boys into Good Men
HarperCollins 244392 Australia 2007 0732284503 / 9780732284503 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition At last, a straight-talking book that takes parents into the mysterious world of boys. How do you raise boys to men in a world where trouble beckons at every turn? How do you make sure they learn the right lessons, stay out of danger, find a path to follow? How do you ensure they'll be OK? Author Celia Lashlie has some of the answers. After years working in the prison service, she knows what can happen when boys make the wrong choices. She also knows what it's like to be a parent - she raised a son on her own and feared for his survival. As a crucial part of the NZ Good Man Project, she talked to 180 classes of boys throughout the country. Her insights into what boys need - and what parents can do to help them - are ground-breaking. In this honest, no-nonsense and best-selling book, Celia Lashlie reveals what goes on inside the world of boys, and that it is an entirely different world from that of girls. With clarity and insight, she offers parents - especially mothers - practical and reassuring advice on raising their boys to become good, loving, articulate men. 217 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

The Redemption of Althalus, David & Leigh Eddings
8 David & Leigh Eddings The Redemption of Althalus
Voyager / HarperCollins 244069 Australia 2000 First Australian Edition 0002247542 / 9780002247542 Hardcover Good Condition Good A fabulous brand new Eddings standalone fantasy, set in an entirely new magical world. A bronze-age burglar, armed robber and sometime murderer, our hero Althalus is commissioned to steal a book by a mysterious cloaked stranger named Ghend. Althalus sets off to the House at the End of the World to steal it -- after stealing Ghend's cloak, as well, since winter is coming on. (Althalus is a rogue who can get away with almost anything...maybe with everything!) At the House at the End of the World, he finds a talking cat...in the same room as the book Ghend described. What he can't find once he's in the house is the door by which he entered. Only 2467 years and an ice age later does Althalus re-emerge with the cat, Emmy, in the hood of his (Ghend's) cloak. By now he can read. He's read the book and discovered a tool mightier than the blunt instrument he once used to disable his victims. The book was written by the god Deiwos, whose evil brother Daeva is trying to unmake the world. Emmy is in fact their sister and she's setting out to save the world with Althalus to help her. No easy task. First there is a quest to unearth the magical knife that will enable Emmy to assemble and command her band of essential helpers: Eliar (young soldier), Andine (leader of a small country), Bheid (black-robed priest), Gher (ten-year old orphan), Leitha (telepath/witch). Their respective commands: lead, obey, illuminate, deceive, listen. Althalus is commanded by the Knife to seek. Battles follow against Gelta the Queen of Night and the armies of Daeva involving many devious manoeuvres in and out of the House where Doors can be opened (solely by Eliar) to any place at any time. Daeva has his Doors, too. When Daeva can't win through battle, he tries revolution. When Dweia (Emmy) can't win any other way, Althalus will persuade her to lie, cheat and steal -- reciprocating the lessons in truth, justice and morality Emmy has been giving him for some while. The existence of the world hangs in the balance and love cannot be guaranteed to triumph in this glorious epic fantasy. 694 pages. Light tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1.

But when he starts finding strange scraps of shiny paper inscribed with meaningless letters, the adventures he goes through give him the courage to beat Toughie at his own game. If you remember your chemistry lessons, you might realise before Sam does that the letters are not 'magical' in quite the way he things they are. This is a celebration of science. 156 pages.

The Five Stages of the Soul: Charting the Spiritual Passages That Shape our Lives, Harry R. Moody and David Carroll
14 Harry R. Moody and David Carroll The Five Stages of the Soul: Charting the Spiritual Passages That Shape our Lives
Rider 244624 Great Britain 1998 0712670912 / 9780712670913 Softcover Very Good Condition 'A new life, a new chance, now awaits you. You only have to reach out and take it. But remember: you yourself must do the reaching. ' Everyone who has ever asked themselves 'Is this all there is?' will draw inspiration from The Five Stages of the Soul. In midlife many of us, regardless of our worldly success, feel that life is not giving us what we want. But when we come to analyse what it is that we do want, we are not sure. The confidence and idealism that carried us through the first half of our lives often gives way to emptiness and confusion as we get older. This is the first book to explore the specific stages of spiritual awakening that we go through as we age - from midlife crisis and the search for inner purpose - to the true happiness and fulfilment that can be achieved once we find the path to spiritual wholeness. Based on extensive research from a leading teacher in the field of aging, this thought provoking book relates the spiritual experiences and lessons of numerous individuals and draws on psychology and religion to offer guidance and inspiration to those searching to regain a sense of meaning in their lives. 'The gifts we can receive from people who have tasted spiritual possibility are maps which we then use to guide our own journey. . . 374 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Song of Survival - Women Interned, Helen Colijn
15 Helen Colijn Song of Survival - Women Interned
Millenium Books 228885 Australia 1996 First Australian Edition 186429065X / 9781864290653 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket Thrown into the whirlwind of dark forces unleashed with the onset of World War II, a young woman, Helen Colijn, her sisters, and father flee the oncoming Japanese army. Helen Colijn's account of her wartime experiences is a window into a largely overlooked dimension of World War II -- the imprisonment of women and children in Southeast Asia by the Japanese and how these prisoners of war responded to their dire circumstances. The conditions were terrible. Food was scarce; medicine unavailable. Held in captivity for three and a half years, more that a third of the women in Helen's camp died of disease or starvation. Yet their courage, faith, resiliency, ingenuity, and camaraderie provide us with enduring lessons on living. Though the prisoners had no musical instruments, they had their voices, and from memory scored classical works for symphony and piano. The music that helped sustain them while in captivity is a lasting and precious gift of these women to a world that has witnessed far too much war. 216 pages.

Elizabeth, J. Randy Taraborrelli

Sidgwick & Jackson 227060 Great Britain 2006 First Edition 0283070072 / 9780283070075 Hardcover Fine Condition Fine An insightful and page-turning biography of a true screen legend. Elizabeth Taylor is known internationally as one of the most beautiful and talented women ever to grace the silver screen. She has won two Academy Awards and has starred in over sixty films. She is just as well known for her tempestuous personal life, marrying eight times and suffering through innumerable health problems. A cultural icon, she has been written about before ...but never like this. This moving book traces for the first time Elizabeth's journey through the dark and often lonely world of a fame unparalleled in the 1960s and 1970s, a time during which alcohol and drugs played a major part in her life. It would be with her fifth (and sixth) husband Richard Burton (with whom she made twelve movies, including Cleopatra) that she would learn life lessons about love and loyalty that would inform the rest of her life and, finally, be the catalyst for her alcoholic recovery in the 1980s. This book also details her philanthropic work as an AIDS activist in the 1990s as well as her stunning success as a business woman today (with a multi-million-dollar fragrance). Based on years of research, this is not just a star's biography ...it's an unforgettable woman's story. 548 pages. Illustrated with black and white photographs. Quantity Available: 1.

The Right Mountain: Lessons From Everest On The Real Meaning of Success, Jim Hayhurst, SR
20 Jim Hayhurst, SR The Right Mountain: Lessons From Everest On The Real Meaning of Success
John Wiley & Sons 233287 Toronto 1997 0471642207 / 9780471642206 Softcover Very Good Condition It happened in 1988, and a man named Jim Hayhurst was there to witness it. Two men died trying to climb Mount Everest. They died because they failed to understand themselves and their goals. They attempted a climb that was not for them. They were not on the right mountain. The Right Mountain is Jim's story of that climb. It is a riveting account of how traditional definitions of success can break down and what can be done to improve them. As part of the 1988 Canadian Expedition to Mount Everest, Jim experienced first hand the monumental challenges involved in climbing the world's highest mountain. He takes you on that expedition, across surging rivers, over treacherous ice fields, and up mountains where temperatures dip to 60 below and winds gust to over 160 miles per hour. He describes the life-threatening experiences that affected each member of the team, the critical choices that had to be made, and the lessons that were learned as a result. More than an adventure story, The Right Mountain is a graphic illustration of what it means to be successful. Not just in terms of short-lived victories. But in terms that are right for the individual, that lead to sustained success and real satisfaction. 209 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.
