Leonardo da Vinci was one of the most renowned artists of his day, and, in modern times, his work is recognized worldwide. He is universally acknowledged as a prophetic visionary, who envisioned and created blueprints for many ideas and artifacts now taken for granted in the modern world. The Da Vinci Enigma Tarot is faithful to his vision, drawing on his notebooks, drawings, and ideas. Lavishly illustrated with his artwork, the deck creates a portable notebook containing the macrocosm (Major cards), the greater archetypal world, and the microcosm (Minor cards), the lesser manifest world of everyday. Using da Vinci's own insights, the accompanying book enables the reader to use the deck to discover fresh ways of looking at personal experience.

Written by a leading authority on poisonous plants and an expert in human poisonings, Plants that Poison: a New Zealand Guide is a guide to a selection of plants and mushrooms with toxic properties that can be found in New Zealand – in back yards, public gardens, school playgrounds, on roadsides and in waste ground. With a particular focus on plants that are of concern for children, the emphasis is on safety through education, to help you understand the risks so that you can avoid them. There is advice on what to do if you think you or your child has eaten something poisonous, and a section on toxic mechanisms – how the poisons act on the human body, the signs and symptoms of poisoning, and the treatment likely to be necessary. Enlivened with historical background and interesting folklore, and comprehensively illustrated with colour photographs to aid identification, this book provides a practical and measured response to demand for information about poisonous plants in New Zealand.

Equity and Governance: 75 Years of Blindness Advocacy in New Zealand 1945-2020

ISBN: 9780995132948

Equity and Governance picks up from where Greg Newbold’s previous book, Quest for Equity, left off, and covers the Association of Blind Citizens’ history since 1995. After briefly reviewing the Association’s first 50 years (1945–1995), the book covers the group’s convoluted and eventful history over the subsequent 25 years. The book focuses on what is called the governance revolution, which resulted in consumer-controlled governance of the Royal New Zealand Foundation for the Blind’s board of trustees in 2002. Gaining control over board composition, however, did not, contrary to the expectations of many, end the conflicts between the Association and the Foundation. In fact, in the 18 years since the passage of the Royal New Zealand Foundation of the Blind Act 2002, although relations have for the most part been smooth, tensions at times have been as trying as they were before the passage of the Act. The last 25 years has seen as much activity and passion from within the Association of Blind Citizens as at any time in its history and significant developments have occurred. This book chronicles the intricate matrix of activities and campaigns engaged in by the Association since its 50th Jubilee in 1995.

Caught in the clutches of addiction, Denise Cloughley knows what it's like to visit the depths of hell and stay for a while. From blackouts to forced institutionalization, her life was a maze of twists and turns that cost her nearly everything and sent her on the run from police, family, and the shady rehab facility that hunted her like a dog. With her business, family, and friends gone, there was nothing left but her addiction that threatened to permanently extinguish the light in her eyes. How can anyone survive the grip of its tentacles that pulls its victims back to the very behaviour that destroyed their happiness? Her addiction seized it all: work, families, and health. Then it threatened to take the last of what was left of her shattered life. Hundreds of millions of people are currently battling addiction worldwide. "Poured Me a Glass of Life" is an explosive expose of the ugly side of addiction rehab. In a perfect blend, she shares her life story, offers analysis of the fatal flaws of rehab, and offers inspiration and real-world advice about overcoming adversity. Whether you have suffered from addiction or love someone who has, this raw and authentic look will have you on the edge of your seat. It is painfully honest without ever been depressing, far from it. Although it describes moments of crushing desolation it is extremely engaging and beautifully written read with a direct and personable style that quite often provides laugh out loud moments. Most importantly, you will walk away from this powerful read challenged and changed. The inspiration it offers is priceless and will last long after you read it.

Wallace Bain retired in early 2020 after 28 distinguished years as a Coroner, most recently in Rotorua. During these years Mr Bain developed a national reputation for his sensitivity and compassion in dealing with difficult cases such as those of Nia Glassie and Moko Rangitoheriri. That a child is killed in New Zealand as a result of abuse every five weeks he finds “unacceptable”. He has also developed a reputation for being “a Coroner on the warpath” for his forthright demands from time to time that New Zealand’s laws and regulations be changed to protect ordinary citizens. His work as a Coroner, says Wallace Bain, has been to speak for the dead to take care of the living. “After climbing the mountain I can finally enjoy the view.”
