    Title: Adult ADHD: How to Succeed As a Hunter in a Farmer's World
    Author: HARTMANN THOM

    Most people do not "grow out" of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). For many, their ADHD traits have led to difficulties in school, relationships, and work. But for our hunter-gatherer ancestors these characteristics were necessary for survival. Hunters must be easily distractible, constantly scanning their environment, and unafraid of taking risks. When humanity experienced the agricultural revolution 10,000 years ago, a vastly different type of personality--the methodical "Farmer"--became dominant. Most of our modern world is tailored to this Farmer personality, from 9-to-5 jobs to the structure of public schools, leaving ADHD Hunters feeling like unsuccessful outcasts. However, the Hunter skill set offers many opportunities for success in today's Farmer society--if you learn how to embrace your ADHD traits instead of fighting against them.In this step-by-step guide, Thom Hartmann explains the positive side of Hunter behavior. Drawing on solid scientific and psychological principles, he provides easy-to-follow organizational strategies, tips to maintain focus and create a distraction-free workspace, and tools to set goals, build a business plan, and discover the right business project to keep you motivated.&

    Hartmann also includes tips on navigating family relationships and parenting--for most Hunter parents are also raising Hunter children.

He looks at causes, treatments, both medical and natural, anxiety in the workplace and more, sharing his own experiences as well as stories from others.

    Title: Be Resilient & Thrive: 170 Ways to Bounce Back Stronger
    Author: LINDSAY PATRICK

    It's only natural to occasionally stagger under the weight of crisis and upheaval - both personal and global. This book is about getting back up on the other side. Building resilience isn't about simply moving on; it's about distilling strategies for the future from the things that have hurt us. Armed with years of research (and hard-won life experience), Patrick Lindsay has identified four keys to resilience: a sound mind, a sound body, a sound spirit and an action plan. Be Resilient and Thrive, the latest in Lindsay's inspirational book series, guides readers to weather adversity with heads held high; to preserve the things that matter most; and to unearth opportunities for joy, no matter how grim a situation might appear. 'To exist is to change; to change is to mature; to mature is to go on creating yourself endlessly.' - Henri Bergson (1859 - 1941)

    Title: Black Flu 1918: The Story of NZ's Worst Public Health Disaster
    Author: RICE GEOFFREY

    Many New Zealand families were affected by the 1918 influenza pandemic. In the space of about six weeks, over 6400 Pakeha died and an estimated 2500 Maori. That equals nearly half the total of New Zealand soldiers killed in the First World War. Yet these were civilians, dying in the first month of peace. This was New Zealand's worst-ever public health disaster. The whole country seemed to shut down for several weeks in November 1918. Because the victims' bodies turned black when they died, many believed it was the plague.Could it happen again? The risk of another major influenza pandemic is even greater now, thanks to international jet travel. Global flu surveillance should give us better warning, and we now have anti-viral drugs and antibiotics to deal with the secondary pneumonia that was the real killer in 1918. But do we have the systems in place to deal with another massive health crisis? This book shows how we coped back in 1918 - the response of public health officials, how the sick were nursed, how thousands of convalescents were fed and the lessons learned that may still be useful today. It is an inspiring and fascinating story that all New Zealanders need to know about.

    We are all apprentice old people.

    More and more of us are living to a very great age. But how do we give those we love, and eventually ourselves, a chance to be older as happily and healthily as we possibly can?

    Dr Lucy's book looks at answers, to questions big and small, and helps us understand that long life is something to be celebrated and embraced. Most situations, she tells us, are solvable.

    - When does 'fiercely independent' turn into 'badly behaved'?
    - How do you navigate the near impossible discussions around resuscitation, intensity of treatments, power of attorney?
    - How do you get doctors to listen?
    - Should your mother be taking seven different medicines?
    - Should Dad be driving, and if not, who can stop him?
    - What does a good care home look like?

    This practical book, full of warmth, humour, philosophy, joy and real-life stories, is by a doctor who has worked her entire career as a geriatrician, caring for people who have complicated problems and who need answers to the delicate questions that arise as we get older.

    Anxiety, depression and addiction are the scourge of modern-day living. How are they linked? How do we beat them?According to bestselling author and researcher David Gillespie, we are more addicted than ever before, which is playing havoc with our dopamine levels. Our see-sawing dopamine levels are fuelling epidemic-like levels of depression, anxiety and stress.Gillespie reveals a large and robust body of research that shows how addictive activities, such as screen use, sugar consumption, drinking, gambling, shopping and smoking, spike our dopamine levels, which in turn affects our brain's ability to regulate our mood.As a society, we are experiencing soaring rates of depression and anxiety, which correlate almost exactly with increased opportunities to engage with addictive activities, particularly screens.The good news is that we can break the cycle to make things better. There are myriad root causes of mental illness, many of which are beyond our control, David argues that it makes sense to tackle the thing that is within our control - our dopamine levels.

    Title: Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging & the Courage to Stand Alone
    Author: BROWN BRENE

    A timely and important new book that challenges everything we think we know about cultivating true belonging in our communities, organizations, and culture, from the #1 bestselling author of Rising Strong, Daring Greatly, and The Gifts of Imperfection

    "True belonging doesn't require us to change who we are. It requires us to be who we are." Social scientist Brene Brown, PhD, LMSW, has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives--experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame, and empathy. In Braving the Wilderness, Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization. With her trademark mix of research, storytelling, and honesty, Brown will again change the cultural conversation while mapping a clear path to true belonging.

    Brown argues that we're experiencing a spiritual crisis of disconnection, and introduces four practices of true belonging that challenge everything we believe about ourselves and each other. She writes, "True belonging requires us to believe in and belong to ourselves so fully that we can find sacredness both in being a part of something and in standing alone when necessary. But in a culture that's rife with perfectionism and pleasing, and with the erosion of civility, it's easy to stay quiet, hide in our ideological bunkers, or fit in rather than show up as our true selves and brave the wilderness of uncertainty and criticism. But true belonging is not something we negotiate or accomplish with others; it's a daily practice that demands integrity and authenticity. It's a personal commitment that we carry in our hearts." Brown offers us the clarity and courage we need to find our way back to ourselves and to each other. And that path cuts right through the wilderness. Brown writes, "The wilderness is an untamed, unpredictable place of solitude and searching. It is a place as dangerous as it is breathtaking, a place as sought after as it is feared. But it turns out to be the place of true belonging, and it's the bravest and most sacred place you will ever stand."

    Praise for Brene Brown's Rising Strong

    " Brown's] research and work have given us a new vocabulary, a way to talk with each other about the ideas and feelings and fears we've all had but haven't quite known how to articulate. . . . She] empowers us each to be a little more courageous."--The Huffington Post

But through self-discipline, mental toughness, and hard work, Goggins transformed himself from a depressed, overweight young man with no future into a U.S. Armed Forces icon and one of the world's top endurance athletes. The only man in history to complete elite training as a Navy SEAL, Army Ranger, and Air Force Tactical Air Controller, he went on to set records in numerous endurance events, inspiring Outside magazine to name him "The Fittest (Real) Man in America."
    In Can't Hurt Me, he shares his astonishing life story and reveals that most of us tap into only 40% of our capabilities. Goggins calls this The 40% Rule, and his story illuminates a path that anyone can follow to push past pain, demolish fear, and reach their full potential.

    Title: Cancer Companion How to Navigate Your Way from Diagnosis to Treatment & Beyond
    Author: LINDSAY TONI


    A cancer diagnosis has more than physical effects; it can cause a torrent of unexpected, unfamiliar emotions felt by both the patient and those who care for them. The Cancer Companion is a compassionate, down-to-earth guide for those navigating these difficult and complex emotions. It takes psychological interventions shown to be appropriate and helpful in the management of cancer-related distress and provides an effective framework for patients and their loved ones to be able to apply these interventions in their own lives.


    The book is written in short, concise chapters, organised in four sections:

    • diagnosis and treatment
    • ending treatment
    • managing advanced disease
    • strategies to manage the specific psychological components which may occur (including anxiety, depression, sleep disturbance and management of relationships).

    With over a decade of experience working with cancer patients and their families, author Toni Lindsay understands that accessible, constructive emotional guidance is vital. This simple structure, combined with the book's comprehensive approach, aims to help people find a companionate commentary on their situation, and to engage with the outlined strategies. The Cancer Companion is a comforting, constructive, and jargon-free guide which will have a lasting and meaningful impact on the mental wellbeing of anyone whose life has been affected by cancer.

    Title: Daring Greatly: How the Courage to be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, & Lead
    Author: BROWN BRENE


    The number one New York Times bestseller and TED sensation.


    Every time we are introduced to someone new, try to be creative or start a difficult conversation, we take a risk. We feel uncertain and exposed. We feel vulnerable.


    Most of us try to fight those feelings - we strive to appear perfect. But in a powerful new vision Dr Brené Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability, and dispels the widely accepted myth that it's a weakness. She argues that vulnerability is in fact a strength, and when we shut ourselves off from revealing our true selves we grow distanced from the things that bring purpose and meaning to our lives.


    Daring Greatlyis the culmination of twelve years of groundbreaking social research across the home, relationships, work and parenting. It is an invitation to be courageous; to show up and let ourselves be seen, even when there are no guarantees.


    This is vulnerability. This is daring greatly.

It invites readers to question their own understandings. It celebrates and documents disability culture in the now. It looks to the future and the past with hope and love.
