Description:

Up for another hilariously gross adventure? Then read on...
 
Sam and his best mate, Jared, are off on another Freaky adventure. Sam's been hard at work all summer trying to build up the world's largest, smelliest, grossest ball of toe jam from all of the cow poop, slug slime and sweat that's living between his toes. But when he uses Smelly Melly's toothbrush to try and dig out the huge dob of mouldy, smelly muck, well, let's just say ... it's not too happy about the move.

Description:

“It echoed around my head. The carbon wing blade flexed in the water as I thrust like a man possessed. Past the point of no return, I was above the log jam. A broken blade, maybe even a missed stroke and that could be my last. The river was rough, it was ugly and I was bouncing like a cork.”
 
Lovers of adventure will thrill at the task Steve Posselt set himself on the biggest kayak trip of his life. Up the Mississippi, through the canals of the US and the UK, down the Thames, across the channel and up the Seine to Paris. Crazy? Steve Posselt is a climate warrior, determined to raise the awareness of climate chaos and its impact on our daily lives. He set off from Canberra in January 2015 to drag his kayak through three continents and attend the Paris Climate Conference officially known as COP21. This is the story of what he learned about himself on the way. It is also the story of despair and redemption as a buoyant, enthusiastic movement embraced him when he finally returned home. A must read for every climate activist, adventurer and their friends.

Description:

Caroline Chisolm's hard work and determination changed the history of female migration to Australia and ensured better conditions for families on migrant ships and offered them paid work.
Eliza Hawkins was a trailblazer, surviving a dangerous journey as the first European woman to cross the Blue Mountains to Bathurst, travelling by horse and cart.
Mary Gaunt from Ballarat dared to lead her own expeditions in West Africa and China, travelling from Peking to the edge of the Gobi desert in a mule cart and became a very popular travel writer and novelist.
Hilda Rix Nicholas fought for women painters to be taken seriously and held successful exhibitions in France and Britain, before returning to Australia to paint superb images of rural life in the Monaro.
Sister Anne Donnell was one of the first nurses to volunteer in World War One. Her letters made her famous, recounting the sufferings of Anzacs in a military hospital on Lemnos, where British administrative bungles kept the nurses and their patients short of sheets, bandages and drinking water.
Nell Tritton from Brisbane became personal assistant and translator to handsome Alexander Kerensky, the reformist Russian Prime Minister who was later deposed by Lenin. As Madame Kerensky she helped him escape assassins sent by Stalin. As the Nazis advanced on Paris Nell used her own money to purchase forged Spanish visas so her husband's Russian-Jewish employees and their families could escape from the invading Nazis.
Louise Mack worked in Tuscany and became the world's first female war correspondent in German-occupied Belgium. She wrote a bestselling war memoir and donated her royalties to help Belgian war victims before returning to Sydney, where she married an Anzac veteran.
Margaret Ogg and Vida Goldstein were ridiculed when they dared to claim that women were intelligent enough to sit in Parliament. Enid Lyons, mother of twelve, became Australia's first Cabinet Minister, but it took another 50 years for Julia Gillard to become Australia's first female Prime Minister.
A lawyer by profession, mother and grandmother, Dame Quentin Bryce blazed a trail for women by becoming Australia's first female Governor-General. After leaving office she returned to her home state of Queensland where she now heads a programme designed to combat domestic violence.

Description:

It'd been a long time since I claimed some solitude in this blessed landscape; since I've done without lifes little props. Here I have no friend, no dog, no radio, no clock, no phone, no roof, no body pollutants. The clackety-clack of the typewriter travels out into the valley and gets lost in expanses of forest and paperbark swamp. I'm the only soul around.
For ten years Robyn Davidson has been travelling light. Across the desert, across America on a Harley-Davidson, or walking through the bush of ghosts by night. In these articles that make up Travelling Light, the bestselling author of Tracks takes us into wilds of many countries - as well as countries of the mind.

Description:

'This book is hilarious, quirky and completely out of left field,' said somebody.
From debut author Hayden Bradford comes a rip roaring yarn which could be the funniest book published this year.
'Travesty' is an unashamedly hilarious tale of a bloke so hard done by in his life, he could only have been born from the imagination of another bloke. His mother named him Travesty as she believed his birth signalled the beginning of one long, drawn out disaster for her. But without warning, Travesty's life comes to an abrupt and ridiculously funny end. He is then delivered to Heaven. How does that happen to an atheist?
Hitch yourself a ride on Travesty's crazy journey on Earth and in Heaven!
'You know when you are sitting alone laughing out loud you have a classic. Great laugh,' said another someone.

Treat Your Customers Like Animals
The Counterintuitive Guide to Increasing Sales Without Selling
John S McKinstry

2019-04-30
A$9.99
Global Publishing Group

Description:

Treat Your Customers Like Animals outlines a counter intuitive approach to selling that leads to rapid sales growth through VALUE Encounters.
 
The cornerstone to an effective VALUE Encounter, whether the engagement is with prospective customers, networking to obtain new customers, or servicing the requirements of existing customers, is the relationship that you have with the party with whom you are communicating.
 
Not all relationships are the same; and not all customers are the same. Often when people operate in business they gravitate towards those individuals or organisations that they believe can help them the most, particularly when looking for new business opportunities or selling additional products and services to existing customers. This is a fundamentally flawed approach that can damage relationships and results in a significant waste of time and effort.
 
If you look at your customers and prospects according to their actual or perceived monetary value to you or your organisation, or look at your network and grade the usefulness of those that you know to your commercial objectives, you probably adopt some form of traditional A,B,C and D grading criteria.
 
If this is the case, you will benefit significantly from learning how to treat your customers like animals, from classifying them as Elephants, Tigers, Cats and Kittens and interacting with them according to their relationship not according to their actual or perceived monetary value.
 
There is no disagreement from any seasoned business development professional, learning and development specialist, or successful entrepreneur that relationships are the key to successful outcomes. None of these people, however, can explain why this is the case in a way that provides less experienced staff with a framework that allows them to operate as efficiently and effectively as they do.
 
The VALUE Encounter approach is counter-intuitive. It is revolutionary in terms of conventional business development techniques, is replicable and will rapidly increase your commercial effectiveness.

Trickle-Down Censorship
An Outsider's Account of Working Inside China's Censorship Regime
JFK Miller

2016-08-11
A$9.99
Hybrid Publishers

Description:

A Westerner's inside look into the workings of Chinese society.
For six years, from 2005 to 2011, Australian JFK Miller worked in Shanghai for English-language publications censored by state publishers under the aegis of the Chinese Communist Party. In this wry memoir, he offers a view of that regime, as he saw it, as an outsider from the bottom up.
'Trickle-Down Censorship' explores how censorship affected him, a Westerner who took free speech for granted. It is about how he learned censorship in a system where the rules are kept secret; it is about how he became his own Thought Police through self-censorship; it is about the peculiar relationship he developed with his censors, and the moral choices he made as a result of censorship and how, having made those choices, he viewed others.
This is also the story of a re-emerging colossus - China, the world's most populous nation and one of its oldest civilizations - and how the Chinese relate to foreigners and the outside world. The so-called "clash of civilizations" is played out in the microcosm of JFK Miller's experience working under Chinese state censorship.

John Hickman

Description:

Tripping Over is a true story of life in post war England in the 1950s and 1960s. It tells the story of John, who grows up in the shadow of his dad, a returned war hero. John senses he is different but not in a good way and knows he has big shoes to fill. He is not coping well. Beleaguered and confused, poor judgement and clumsiness dog his every move.
 
When his parents visit the annual Earl's Court Motor Show to buy a new car but return with a boat instead - turmoil follows. Later he is almost killed on a disastrous wild horse ride on Rotten Row but is he really guilty of the police accusation of fraud? As a teenager John explores his sexuality, only to fall in love for all the wrong reasons.
 
John's self-deprecating reminisces are often illuminating as the reader accompanies him on his bittersweet journey of both triumph and disaster.
 
John's first book Reluctant Hero, is about his dad, Bill, who was a Lancaster bomber pilot in WW2. Tripping Over is its sequel. Sex, Lies and Crazy People, published in 2014, follows on from Tripping Over. They are all true stories.

Tugga's Mob

Description:

What happens on tour stays on tour was the mantra for the southern hemisphere backpackers who swarmed Europe in the 1980s. Foreign countries had to be explored and devoured in every way possible.
 
Waikato-born Judy Williams worked hard for her big OE: London, Paris, Rome, Gallipoli; and her adventures were dutifully recorded in her diary.
 
A diary that also recorded how the obsessive Tugga Tancred and his Kiwi mates turned Judy's trip of a lifetime into a nightmare of sly sexual harassment. Their bad behaviour went unnoticed, or was ignored by fellow passengers like Australian Andrew Hackett who chose to party hard with Tugga's Mob. After all, they were in Europe for a good time, not a long time.
 
And what a time it was, until Tugga's fixation ultimately led to murder: a crime that went unpunished for 30 years.
 
But few things remain hidden forever. The rediscovery of Judy's hand-written diary sparks a trail of revenge that the original perpetrators never see coming.
 
'With... penetrating insights into the world of newsgathering, Tugga's Mob is the story of a forgotten crime that refuses to stay buried...' - Garry Disher

Description:

Accompanied by Turkey, his little 'hunting' dog, Derek Pugh founded several outstation schools in the most remote parts of Arnhem Land and gained a rare insight into a traditional way of life which has been witnessed by only a few outsiders.
By turns reflective, tragic and hilarious, Turn Left at the Devil Tree is a memoir of a visiting teacher among the Indigenous people and wildlife of the Top End of Australia. It is also a history - revealing some little known and disturbing events that were sanctioned from the highest levels of government.
Life there was "frustrating at times, but always a challenge and Derek has recorded his experiences beautifully in this delightful book". Ted Egan AO
