            Jacinda Ardern: A New Kind of Leader

            Prime Minister of New Zealand Jacinda Ardern is a leader for a new generation, one tired of inertia in the face of pressing issues such as climate change, immigration and the rise of far-right terrorism. Ardern was catapulted onto the international stage with her grace and compas...sion following the Christchurch mosque shooting. Oprah Winfrey invited us to 'channel our inner Jacindas' as praise for Ardern flooded headlines and social media. The world's youngest female head of government, and only the second elected world leader to give birth while in office, Ardern describes herself as a progressive and a social democrat. In this revealing biography, journalist Madeleine Chapman discovers the woman behind the headlines. Politically engaged from an early age, Ardern has encountered her fair share of sexism, but rather than let that harden her she advocates 'rising above' critics. In her first press conference, she announced an election campaign of 'relentless positivity'. The tactic was a resounding success- donations poured in and Labour rebounded in the polls. But can Ardern live up to her promise? What does her new style of leadership look like in practice? And what can we learn from the world's reaction to this inspiring leader?

            The most anticipated political memoir of the year. A frank account from National MP Judith Collins of the highs and lows of a political life. From humble beginnings as the daughter of Labour-voting farming parents, Judith Collins has carved a path to almost the very top of politi...cs. The youngest daughter of older parents, Judith Collins grew up in rural Walton, Waikato on a dairy farm. At the age of 10 she entered politics, running for Class President. She won. After a successful career as a lawyer, Collins became the MP for Papakura in 2002, alongside fellow new recruit, John Key. When Key and National won office in 2008, Collins became the Minister for Police, Corrections and Veterans. Funny, forthright and fearless, Collins reveals the truth behind what it is like to survive - and thrive - as a senior female politician for two decades.

            The Room Where It Happened: A White House Memoir

            Bolton's account starts with his long march to the West Wing as Trump and others woo him for the National Security job. The minute he lands, he has to deal with Syria's chemical attack on the city of Douma, and the crises after that never stop. As he says in the opening pages,... "If you don't like turmoil, uncertainty, and risk; all the while being constantly overwhelmed with information, decisions to be made, and sheer amount of work; and enlivened by international and domestic personality and ego conflicts beyond description, try something else." The conflicts, ego and otherwise, are all there-from the upheaval in Venezuela, to the erratic and manipulative moves of North Korea's Kim Jong Un. But so too is the story of a chaotic White House and of a President with his own set a rules. "The differences between this presidency and previous ones I had served were stunning," writes Bolton, who served Reagan, and George HW Bush and George W. Bush. His account makes that clear.
