              Ray Avery is an amazing person. He is the current NZer of the Year because of his clever work in the third world using his scientific and business knowledge to provide cheap cataract operations, cheap and more effective incubators for babies and other creative scientific solution...s. His childhood was very 'Angela's Ashes' - brought up in an orphanage (his own mother had tried to sell him?, then ran away and lived on the streets. But Ray went on to become a scientist, a millionaire, very successful businessman and now someone who literally does help to change the world. During the mid-nineties Ray spent most of his time working in Eritrea and Nepal setting up two world class Intraocular lens laboratories. At that time the cost of an Intraocular lenses was about US$300 but Ray managed to put the technology together to produce lenses for under US$10.00 making modern Cataract surgery accessible to the poor throughout Africa and Asia.Today these laboratories produce over 10% of the worlds supply of Intraocular lenses. Today he encourages other talented people to get on board and tackle some of the really big problems confronting the poor in developing countries. From his garage in Mt Eden Auckland Ray manages a global network of experts to work on specific projects and somehow everyone finds themselves donating their time and knowledge for free - and they are rewarded by making a difference.

This book will not only establish the place of Corporal Apiata in New Zealand's history but will give an insight into the nature of a man who is truly a reluctant hero. While to most of us his actions seemed extraordinary and heroic, Corporal Apiata felt he was an ordinary Kiwi just 'doing his job'.

              "It could have been any family of six children - except that five of them were born at once, on 27 July 1965. The Lawson quins were a medical miracle and a national obsession. Their early childhood was idyllic, but when their parents' marriage broke up, their mother married a man... who terrorised them for eight years before killing her and himself when they were just 16. After that, the nation's darlings were thrown into nightmare years of abuse and heartache, gangs and drugs, beatings and betrayals, from which they have slowly fought their way back. Based on unprecedented access to the quins themselves, and featuring many never before seen family photos, this is a story about the strength of love and family and their ability, in the face of horrendous obstacles, not just to survive but to triumph."--Back cover.
