    Title: Bucket List of an Idiot
    Author: HARVEY DOM

    Brave or crazy? Dom Harvey proves that he's both by letting his friends and family set him a bucket list of mad tasks. Hello, my name is Dominic Harvey and I am an idiot. Ever since the movie The Bucket List came out in 2008, people have been creating their own lists of things to do before they kick the bucket. Some of the things on these lists look so difficult that I wonder if dying would be a better option than actually ticking off the items. The purpose of these lists seems to be to make the list maker feel like they are doing something more with their life than sitting around writing lists and watching Morgan Freeman DVDs. I am a paid-up life-member of a place called the comfort zone. People always go on about the importance of getting out of your comfort zone. Not me. Any day I can stay inside it is a good day. All of which makes it a bit odd that I decided to complete a bucket list of my own. Not just any bucket list though. This is a reverse bucket list - a bunch of stuff that I could have happily passed away without ever doing - stuff like getting a tattoo I'd instantly regret, arm wrestling an All Black and being the model for a life drawing class - and I recruited some of my closest family and friends to compile it for me. In hindsight, this was a bad idea. But here it is - my pain, discomfort and humiliation for your pleasure - The Bucket List of an Idiot.

This third book, 'The Bushman's Bible', now looks at "beyond the material world" issues for the average free-spirited Mr and Mrs Bushman who generally attend the 'big blue' temple in the mountains rather than conventional churches and temples in the big city"--Back cover.

    When did busy become a badge of honour?

    In 10 on-the-couch sessions, New Zealand clinical psychologist Karen Nimmo diagnoses, explains and treats Busy as F*@K syndrome, the condition that's consuming us all, whether we realise it or not.

    If we are going to squeeze the most from ourselves and our all-too-short lives, we need to be able to gauge when our Busy as F*@kness is compromising (or drip-feed destroying) our physical and emotional health, when we're hurting people we love, when we're becoming that person others want to hide from.

    In these pages you'll meet people who are facing the problems most commonly reported in our Busy as F*@k worlds. Some will resonate with you - or you'll spot traits of people you know. Whenever you get an 'aha' moment, you'll find tips, tools and tactics to guide your own journey

    Author: RAI ALIKA & RAHUL

    Buy and Hold explains how the average person can achieve greater financial security through long-term property investment. Other books on the subject of property investment advise you to give up your regular work and move into property investment on a full-time basis. The authors of Buy and Hold argue that it is actually more effective for your investments and financial goals if you continue with your existing career. Alika and Rahul Rai have successfully followed this approach and have steadily achieved financial security while continuing to go about their everyday lives. They have renovated houses themselves and used tradespeople, employed property managers or used friends to manage their properties, bought in small towns and large cities - they know exactly what they would do again and what they wouldn't. They have shared their experiences in this book because of their strong belief that absolutely anyone can do the same thing. Buy and Hold takes the fear factor out of investing in property, and shows that owning multiple properties doesn't have to be a dream that only other people achieve. By understanding the long-term nature of the 'buy and hold' strategy, it will lead to financial independence and along the way many other personal rewards.

    Author: MCDOWELL REX

    From the early 1970s when travellers returned to New Zealand from their big OE with cannabis seeds in their pockets from California, Mexico and Asia, the cultivation of cannabis as a recreational drug was here to stay. This book covers the early history of cannabis in New Zealand from its cultivation as a useful medicinal herb, to how it came to be a prohibited plant and eventually the mainstay of organised criminal enterprises. It describes the early use of cannabis by artists, and jazz musicians with their Bohemian lifestyles until the flood of cheap Thai Buddha sticks made good quality product available to all. It follows the efforts of the Police to combat the cultivation and use of cannabis from the earliest horticultural ventures in the hills of Coromandel, Northland and the East Coast leading to the use of helicopters to locate and destroy cannabis plantations. It covers accidents, some major Police operations, interesting and sometimes amusing incidents. In July 2012, NZ Police in Operation National arrested 2573 persons for cannabis offences and destroyed around 130,000 cannabis plants. Properties, cars, cash, boats, firearms and stolen property were also seized. To some this might demonstrate a spectacular success for the police while others might suggest that it just shows the use of cannabis as a recreational drug in this country is out of control.

    "The inspiring story of seven generations of Gordons at Clifton, Cape Kidnappers. The Gordon family has been at Clifton since 1861. Though farming in this location is often challenging, it is a spectacularly beautiful environment, situated on the east coast of the North Island, just 20 minutes' drive south of Napier. The story of Clifton is a story of a family's deep love and connection to that land and their determination to hand it on intact and thriving to succeeding generations. Six generations of Gordons have enjoyed living there, and the seventh has just been born. Each generation has had a deep attachment to this land both through times of prosperity and success, and through struggles, droughts, floods, and economic downturns. Each has successfully maintained and improved the property to hand onto the next generation."

    Title: Carbon Forest a Nz Guide to Forest Carbon Sinks for Investors Farmers Foresters & Conservationists
    Author: KENNETT PAUL & KENNETT JONATHAN & BENNION TOM

    The Carbon Forest is the ideal book for those wanting to know: What are carbon sinks? How do they work? How do I go about setting one up? Carbon sinks are the most effective way for New Zealanders to extract carbon from the atmosphere. They allow you to have the benefit, use and control of your initiative without relying solely on the government to save us. But beware: there are traps for the unwary. This helpful and informative guide brings together all the information you need to know about how carbons sinks work, their benefits and disadvantages. Written in plain English and aimed at the layperson, it includes up-to-date advice on land selection, forest types and government schemes. It is particularly useful for those interested in small carbon sinks, under 100 hectares. The book explains why trees are the primary tool New Zealanders have for mitigating climate change and clearly outlines the step-by-step process of creating a carbon sink, either for financial or environmental reasons. It presents the choices given by different government schemes, including the Permanent Forest Sink Initiative (PFSI), EBEX21 (Landcare Research) and the Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS). Estimations for the financial returns of these schemes are tabled. The reasons for creating a carbon sink outside of these three schemes are also detailed, including alternative funding sources. This book is useful for landowners of all types: forestry owners, farmers, individual lifestyle blocks, Maori landowners, general businesses and carbon co-ops. It explains the different carbon dioxide absorption rates that can be expected from various regions, land types and vegetation types in New Zealand.

    Title: Carse Head & Crichton Park Farms a Story of the Land & Its People
    Author: PULLAR MARGARET

    Over 150 years ago Frederick Trapski arrived in New Zealand from Poland. In 1864 he married Alicia McKenna from County Cork, and they lived in a settlement for Polish workers near Mosgiel. Their son purchased Carse Head in 1896, which has been farmed by five generations of the Trapski-Pullar-McIntosh descendants. In 2006 this superb Southland property, Carse Head and Crichton Park farms, was a recipient of The New Zealand Century Farm and Station Award. Established in Lawrence, South Otago in 2005, the award recognises farming families who have remained resilient working and improving their land for over a hundred years. It was James Gow Black, from Scotland, the first professor of chemistry and mineralogy at Otago University, who in 1867 bought and named the Crichton Park Downs after his wife Jeannie Crichton. The book provides a fascinating account of this farming knowledge and appreciation of the land. Documentation on Carse Head and Crichton Park farms, assembled by Margaret Pullar for the Award submission, has now been extensively expanded with additional historical material including details of the gifting of land to the Presbyterian Church for Camp Columba; and comprehensive family trees of the Trapski and Pullar descendants. The narrative provides a riveting insight into the world of Otago and Southland farming families: travails, tragic deaths, failures, successes, and one of New Zealand's unsolved murder mysteries. Numerous photographs show farming activities, early farm dwellings, machinery and baking of family recipes handed down from Elizabeth Trapski. Portraits of weddings and other festivities in effect record a history of costume in New Zealand.

    Title: Cartwright Papers Essays on the Cervical Cancer Inquiry of 1987-88 #1 Series 21 into a New Century
    Author: BARTRAM GEOFF & TERRY SIMON

    The Cervical Cancer Inquiry and its report (known as the Cartwright Report) were momentous events in the recent history of New Zealand. Critical issues were at stake: matters of life and death; the life's work of leaders within the medical profession; professional reputations; public trust in the profession, and its own sense of self-worth. After seven months of considering evidence, Judge Silvia Cartwright, assisted by expert medical and legal teams and drawing on specialist opinion from all over the world, concluded that Associate Professor Herbert Green had been conducting unethical research at National Women's Hospital, and that many women had been affected. This book of essays recounts some of this history. Several of the contributors were participants: Clare Matheson writes as one of the patients; Professor Charlotte Paul was a medical adviser to the Inquiry; Sandra Coney (with Phillida Bunkle) wrote the article leading to the Inquiry; Dr Ron Jones was one of the three authors of the 1984 article, using data from Green's own patients, that demonstrated that carcinoma of the cervix had a significant invasive potential. Other authors are specialists in other fields: Professor Alastair Campbell and Associate Professor Joanna Manning comment from the perspective of medical ethics and medical law respectively; Ron Paterson is the Health and Disability Commissioner; Jan Crosthwaite is a philosopher with expertise in medical ethics. These essays not only review the history but also document how the Cartwright Report changed the whole landscape of medical practice and biomedical research in this country, leading to far better protections for both patients and research participants. Yet despite all the regulatory changes, the most significant change to which the Cartwright Report contributed was attitudinal - a rejection of medical paternalism and a new expectation that patients would be treated as partners in their care. The findings of the Report remain controversial and continue to be debated to this day. This book provides a perspective on the current debates and helps place them in context. As Clare Matheson (one of Green's patients) said: 'We must never forget lest it happen again'. Contributors include: Alastair Campbell, Silvia Cartwright, Sandra Coney, Jan Crosthwaite, Ron Jones, Joanna Manning, Clare Matheson, Ron Paterson, Charlotte Paul.

    Title: CCA Handbook: Making the Construction Contracts Work
    Author: DEGERHOLM PETER

    The Construction Contracts assures cash flow in the construction industry, and affects all owners, developers, builders, sub-contractors, and consultants. Although the Act has been in force for almost 13 years, it is not widely understood or effectively used, as illustrated by the collapse of a company reportedly owing sub-contractors and suppliers around $15 million. The CCA Handbook aims to address that. It explains in plain English how the Act’s provisions achieve cash flow and resolve disputes; it details the impact of the Amendment Act 2015 and includes a copy of the legislation. If you’re in construction, the CCA Handbook should be in your business toolkit.

    Author Peter Degerholm (MMgmt (Disp Res) Reg QS FNZIQS FAMINZ (Arb, Med) MRICS) is an adjudicator, arbitrator and mediator, with a background in quantity surveying. His involvement in the CCA started in 1996 when he was a lobbyist for security of payment. He was closely involved in shaping both the principal Act and the Amendment Act, and has practised nationally in construction dispute resolution, dispute prevention and contracts education for over 15 years.

    Title: Changing Our Secondary Schools
    Author: HAQUE BALI

    This is a powerful critique of two decades of educational reform in New Zealand, from an educator who was deeply involved. It is also a provocative call for action.

    Bali Haque has been both a secondary school principal required to implement reform and a senior public servant in the New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) tasked with pushing through changes.

    The book analyses four major reforms since 1989: Tomorrow’s Schools, the NCEA, the revised New Zealand Curriculum and the National Standards. It explores the role of the Ministry of Education, the PPTA, and secondary school principals, and asks some fundamental questions about how we define and measure school and teacher quality and the extent to which schools and teachers can be expected to overcome socioeconomic disadvantage in homes. It examines how well ERO makes decisions about school quality, how useful our decile system is, and the extent to which NCEA results provide any useful measure of school quality.

    In a final “future pathways” section, the author sets out his proposals to address the problems and concerns raised throughout the book.

    With clearly defined topics and summaries in each chapter, this is an accessible and absorbing read. It will be of interest to principals, teachers, Board of Trustees members, parents, public servants and politicians.

    Title: Chasing a Dream: the Exploration of the Imaginary Pacific
    Author: DUNMORE JOHN

    Early Europeans may have believed the world was flat, but by the Middle Ages there was widespread acceptance that it was, in fact, a globe. What remained a mystery, however, was what lay on the “other side”. Some believed it was a source of riches, an ocean harbouring countries where gold and unimaginable riches could be found, including islands from which King Solomon had obtained his wealth. In addition, the belief in a vast southern continent went back centuries, and many expeditions set out to find it, sometimes in search of wealth, sometimes to convert its inhabitants to Christianity. This is the story of the voyages into this great unknown, by the Chinese and early Americans, the Dutch, Spanish, French and English; it recounts the exploits of pirates and scientists, and even the impact of popular fiction on popular imagination, leading to the debunking of many myths, from the sunken Great Southern Continent, to the idea that in the “antipodes”, people walked upside down.

    Title: Child Poverty in NZ
    Author: BOSTON JONATHAN & CHAPPLE SIMON

    Between 175,000 and 265,000 New Zealand children live in poverty, depending on the measure used. These disturbing figures are widely discussed, yet often poorly understood. If New Zealand does not have 'third world poverty', what are these children actually experiencing? Is the real problem not poverty but simply poor parenting? How does New Zealand compare globally and what measures of poverty and hardship are most relevant here? What are the consequences of this poverty for children, their families and society? Can we afford to reduce child poverty and, if we can, how? Jonathan Boston and Simon Chapple look hard at these questions, drawing on available national and international evidence and speaking to an audience across the political spectrum. Their analysis highlights the strong and urgent case for addressing child poverty in New Zealand. Crucially, the book goes beyond illustrating the scale of this challenge, and why it must be addressed, to identifying real options for reducing child poverty. A range of practical and achievable policies is presented, alongside candid discussion of their strengths and limitations. These proposals for improving the lives of disadvantaged children deserve wide public debate and make this a vitally important book for all New Zealanders.
