              The awesomely inspiring true story of how Tangaroa Walker turned his life around through farming - and how what he learned can help anyone succeed. Tangaroa Walker's early years weren't easy. Born into a gang family, he was adopted out twice and attended six different schools bef...ore he was six. He only went to high school to play rugby. Today, he is a true community and industry leader, running a successful dairy farm in Southland, NZ and reaching millions as the much-loved face of Farm4Life with his straight-up, crackup, honest videos covering everything from cow farming to goal-setting; fishing to family life; management to mental health. This is the story of how he did it - the good and the bad times, and all the lessons he's learned along the way (so you don't have to).

              It was widely reported, when he died earlier in 2020, that Gordon McLauchlan's last book was "Stop the Clock" but, in fact, he was finalising details of Encounters until several days before his death in January. In 26 engaging and provocative essays, Gordon McLauchlan writes abou...t people, illustrious and unknown, he has rubbed up against since his Press Gallery days in Wellington in the early 1950s. He gives fresh, and beautifully written, insights into a kaleidoscope of human nature - providing new perspectives on famous politicians, writers, broadcasters and 'ordinary' people who piqued his interest. Most - like Holland, Holyoake, Holmes, Key, Lange, Shadbolt, Davin and Ihimaera - are New Zealanders. Others - like Noam Chomsky and Felipe Fernandez-Armesto- are from elsewhere. Gordon McLauchlan was one of New Zealand best-known and most popular writers, cultural critics and social historians. In a long career he was a newspaper journalist, magazine editor, columnist, book reviewer, radio commentator, and television frontperson. For 10 years he was the editor-in-chief of The New Zealand Encyclopedia, and the author of more than 20 books, with The Passionless People the most famous of several bestsellers.

              Landscape architect, teacher and environmentalist Harry Turbott (1930- 2016) was at the forefront of the first wave of environmental design.

Environmental design and landscape architecture are growing fields in New Zealand as people become more aware of the possibilities and benefits of sustainable development.

              You have to stop me from hurting anyone else. I don't want to do these horrible things. Help me before I'm forced to do it again. And I will do it again because I have no choice. I've never had a choice. In a busy shopping centre, a little girl clutches a teddy bear, clinging to ...it in the absence of her mother, Katrina. Hours later, Katrina's body is discovered in an abandoned building. For Detective Kim Stone, it looks like a quick, functional kill. But Kim's instincts tell her there's more to this senseless murder than meets the eye. What was the motive for killing a young mother out shopping with her child? Days later, a second victim is found in a local park, her neck broken just like Katrina's and her six-year-old son missing. With her colleague, Detective Stacey Wood, working on another unsolved crime and a member of the team grieving the loss of a close relative, Kim is struggling to make inroads on what is fast becoming a complex case. And when a handwritten letter from the killer lands on Kim's desk addressed to her, and pleading for help, she knows time is running out to bring the little boy home alive. With the support of a handwriting analyst and profiler, Kim and the team begin to get inside the mind of the killer and make a shocking discovery. Some of the victims have scratch marks on their wrists. But these are no random scratches. The killer is using them to communicate with someone. The question is... with whom? And if Kim doesn't find them soon, another innocent soul will die.

              In 1970, National Business Review, commenced publication. This innovative, under-resourced, but courageous fortnightly tabloid had a small initial impact, but within five years was a major weekly publication. Grouped around it were other magazines, books, and newsletters. Launche...d by young entrepreneur Henry Newrick, it had editorial input from many of the young journalists of the 1960s. NBR became essential business reading while opening a new market to advertisers and setting new standards in journalism. This memoir, written by one of its founding writers (and the lawyer who fought off legal attacks for many years), is much more than just the story of NBR. It discusses major changes in New Zealand society, politics, the economy, and investigative journalism. It chronicles the way in which a few young New Zealanders with ambition but no money, grew an enterprise which attracted a succession of owners, gained millions in value, and led to its Fairfax-funded launch as a daily paper in1987 which lasting four years. The early lives of many who are now well-known included work for NBR. Its editors from Barrie Saunders, Reg Birchfield and Ian F.Grant, to Bob Edlin,Nevil Gibson, Colin James, Jim Eagles, and Warren Berryman set new standards for business reporting. The two decades end with the departure of the last of the innovators, the defeat of Fairfax's bold plans, and its sale to a new owner. NBR returned to a weekly paper which lasted almost another 30 years in print and is still published online. The first two decades of publishing had many exciting times, all captured in this book. The Author: Hugh Rennie is a lawyer who was one of NBR's initial editorial team, stepping aside for Barrie Saunders who became the first editor, but remaining involved to the end of the second decade. A Wellington lawyer and company director, and a writer, he has drawn on his own knowledge of the early years, the recollections of others, surviving company records, and private sources. Mu
