New Zealanders in our own words

This is Us is a collection of over 200 brief interviews with New Zealanders, spanning the length and breadth of the country; from Cape Reinga to Stewart Island. It was written in response to the Christchurch terrorist attack but is not about it; it is instead a representation of the New Zealand people in their own words. A celebration of the diverse, open, and inclusive communities that exist across New Zealand, This is Us inspires hope by showing the kindness and spirit of everyday people.

Each interview provides a snapshot of the subject’s life, accompanied by a photographic portrait. The joy interviewees felt in telling their stories shines from the page. Each of the interviewees has a unique story to tell, and to have them collected in one place creates an engaging and insightful reading experience that will delight anyone interested in finding out more about Kiwi society and culture.

Carter spoke with characters from a variety of professions, age groups and cultural backgrounds. From a New Zealander with a long line of Kiwi ancestors, to a person with a Māori name but Italian and Brazilian parents, this collection reflects the ethnic diversity and cultural riches of New Zealand. This is Us is a tribute to the Kiwi spirit.

Timeless Wisdom Bundle

USD $89.99 Tax Included

True Stories That Reveal the Depths of the Human Experience
This Bundle Includes All Four Timeless Wisdom Books
plus The Wisdom Years as a Free Bonus!

 

Human Kindness

Kindness comes in many forms and affects all of us. As Mark Twain said, ‘Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.’ And while a kind gesture can often simply make someone feel better about their day, sometimes — as the twenty-five true stories collected here show — it can save a life.

Struggle and Success

We must all start somewhere. In this collection of real-life stories, 25 people take readers on an inspiring journey through the struggles they have overcome in pursuit of success. From small personal triumphs, to large career goals or lifetime achievements, each success, big or small, offers an insight into the inner workings of lives from around the globe, highlighting one of humankind’s greatest traits — resilience.

Fear and Courage

We have all felt fear, whether it’s our racing heart as we make a speech or the profound awareness of our own mortality as we await medical results. Of course, the flip-side of fear is courage, as Nelson Mandela famously said, ‘I learned that courage was not the absence of fear but the triumph over it.’

Love and Loss

Time gives us the wisdom to realize a mother’s sacrifice, a father’s love, a friend’s loyalty, or a grandparent’s kindness, as loss and love turn to memory. These 25 true stories of loss and love from around the world are inspiring and heartbreaking reminders of what is most important: life, love, memory, beauty. Loved ones are honoured in this gripping compilation, interspersed with quotes by diverse people like Beethoven, Abraham Lincoln and Dr Seuss for a book to connect with time and again.

Bonus: The Wisdom Years Unleashing your potential in later life (RRP: $17.99USD)

We are now experiencing one of the most significant revolutions in human life: the dramatic rise in life expectancy. The Wisdom Years is a practical, thought-provoking and life-changing read that reveals how we can re-frame our mindset so that we live life based on our ‘functional age’ rather than our ‘chronological age’. The result is a book that carries a unique and inspiring message: life after retirement is to be enjoyed as a new, exciting and uplifting journey of personal evolution.

All or Nothing: Bringing balance to the achievement-oriented personality

USD $24.99 Tax Included

High achievers often have ‘all-or-nothing’ personality styles, approaching life with dedication, determination and drive to succeed. However, sometimes that success comes at too great a cost. The drive to focus on one tasks or area of life to the exclusion of everything else has undeniable benefits, but can lead to mental and physical fatigue, health problems and even relationship issues.

In this insightful, empowering book, psychologist Mike McKinney draws on his decades of experience to explore how balance can be brought to the all-or-nothing personality, whilst retaining its best qualities, to promote a more meaningful and rewarding life.
