            A celebration of life and death. A book to make you laugh and cry. A deep, funny and personal story about the lives of New Zealand's favourite undertakers, Francis and Kaiora Tipene. Born and raised in Northland, the married couple and parents to five boys now star in the third s...eries of their own reality television show The Casketeers, a show about day-to-day life (and death) at their Auckland funeral business, Tipene Funerals. This is Francis and Kaiora's story, a story about a modest yet richly cultural Maori upbringing in the communities of Pawarenga and Kaitaia, the trials and tribulations of their love and marriage, the joy of raising five sons, and the dedication and mahi required to grow a business. It's also a book about traditions of tangihanga, tikanga Maori and Polynesian ways of morning the dead. Inspirational, hilarious, and wise: this is a book to make you see dying, grief and remembrance in a totally new light.

            Sam Moore's Instagram account and Facebook page Ugly Ink went viral when he started posting images of classic Kiwi stereotypes. They're characters that every New Zealander can relate to, including everyone's gran 'Helpful Beryl', dress code-breaker 'Wedding Kane', the forever hel...pful 'Office Jan', and rugged 'Hilux Surf Drew' among others. Sam's humour in these images gently and affectionately pokes fun at Kiwi culture, providing many snorts of recognition.

            The highly anticipated new book from Malcolm Gladwell, No.1 international bestselling author of The Tipping Point, Blink, Outliers, What the Dog Saw and David and Goliath In July 2015, a young black woman named Sandra Bland was pulled over for a minor traffic violation in rural T...exas. Minutes later she was arrested and jailed. Three days later, she committed suicide in her cell. What went wrong? Talking to Strangers is all about what happens when we encounter people we don't know, why it often goes awry, and what it says about us. How do we make sense of the unfamiliar? Why are we so bad at judging someone, reading a face, or detecting a lie? Why do we so often fail to 'get' other people? Through a series of puzzles, encounters and misunderstandings, from little-known stories to infamous legal cases, Gladwell takes us on a journey through the unexpected. You will read about the spy who spent years undetected at the highest levels of the Pentagon, the man who saw through the fraudster Bernie Madoff, the suicide of the poet Sylvia Plath and the false conviction of Amanda Knox. You will discover that strangers are never simple. No one shows us who we are like Malcolm Gladwell. Here he sets out to understand why we act the way we do, and how we all might know a little more about those we don't.

            Quit Like a Woman: The Radical Choice to Not Drink in a Culture Obsessed with Alcohol
             

            Quit Like a Woman: The Radical Choice to Not Drink in a Culture Obsessed with Alcohol (Hardback)

            By Whitaker, Holly Glenn

            • RRP: $48.50

            Holly's story was that of all the women who try to conform to a life they are told they should want - one that looks good on paper and in movies. She drank green juice and made all the right sounds with men she didn't really like and killed it in the board room and had a yoga-tig...ht body. She did all the right things until all the right things left her prostrate, drunk, on the floor of her apartment. But when she started to look for a way to recover, the support systems she found for sobriety were archaic and patriarchal. Urging drinkers towards a newfound humility is great if you're a man, but if you're a woman and not in a position to renounce privileges you never had, a whole other approach is needed. Quit Like a Woman is a memoir which is also a call to arms, a revolution against everything we assume is true about alcohol and addiction, and a celebration of learning how to claim everything life has to offer.
