              In 1886, a nervous young lawyer and aspiring writer met the editor of a radical new paper to discuss the possibility of publishing some poetry. He thought his 'fractured verses' would not stand the test of time. The editor believed otherwise and in the years that followed, Banjo ...Paterson became Australia's most - loved and influential poet. In a life that took him from a bush boyhood to the battlefields of South Africa and the turmoil of the Great War, Banjo Paterson rubbed shoulders with the rich and famous. But the heroes of his tales were ordinary folk - bushmen, battlers, swaggies and soldiers. He told their stories of humour, tragedy and triumph set against a landscape that is both grindingly harsh and stunningly beautiful, and his words rolled off Australian tongues for generations. From the political upheaval captured in 'Waltzing Matilda' to the wistful longing for the bush in 'Clancy of the Overflow', Banjo follows the life and inspirations of AB Paterson. We meet the men and women who shaped the young Australian nation as it shook off its convict beginnings to embrace its own place on the world stage and who defined our national character today.

              Be inspired by Barack Obama and learn how to think big with this unique insight into the mind of one of the world's great influencers. Born to a black Kenyan father and white American mother, raised in Hawaii and, for a time, Indonesia, Barack Obama would typically never have bee...n tipped for a future president of the United States, such was the world he was born into. But the path towards greatness and the choices he made along the way can be understood by an attitude that saw him take on any challenge - indeed, 'Yes We Can' became the all-inclusive slogan for his presidential candidacy. Riding a wave of positivity and hope for the future that swept him all the way to the Oval Office, Obama aimed to define his presidency as one that would provide opportunities for the many, not the few. With the price of change being gritty negotiation and compromise, Obama evolved the skills of a twenty-first century president which belied his relative inexperience to achieve the America that, as a young man, he had dreamed of. How to Think Like Obama reveals the motivations, inspirations and philosophies behind a man who broke the mould to challenge the status quo. With his thoughts on leadership, innovation, overcoming obstacles and fighting inequality, and with quotes by and about him, with this book you too can learn to think like Barack Obama.

              Michelle Duff delves into Ardern's beginnings in small-town New Zealand, discovering a nose-ringed teen fighting for equality and her own identity in a devout Mormon family. Duff tracks Ardern's political career from being dismissed as a 'show pony' to her compassion during one o...f New Zealand's biggest tragedies, the Christchurch mosque terror attack of 2019. In its aftermath, Ardern has become a global icon for her strength and decisiveness while uniting a country in shock and mourning. Ardern attracted international headlines for being the second world leader to give birth while in office. But why was having a baby so meaningful, and what does it say about the continued struggle for gender equality? Has Ardern really been a transcendent leader, and what enduring mark might she leave on the political landscape? This is an engrossing and powerful exploration of one of the most intriguing political stories of our time-telling us as much about one young woman's ascendancy as it does about the country that elected her.

              This is a gripping read that works on several levels. It's the sliding-door story of someone who might have become a world-famous pop star had he not suffered from a severe phobic disorder.It's the story of an assortment of young musicians trying to find their feet as bands in th...e late 70s and early 80s, and the associated euphoria and craziness of that life.It's Mike's personal story of struggling with agoraphobia and eventually finding a way through. Told in Mike's own words, this is also a loving evocation of a 50s and 60s New Zealand childhood, and a beautifully written memoir that will resonate with anyone who loves a well-told story.
