Manuka: The Biography of an extraordinary honey

USD $29.99 Tax Included

 


Dr. Peter Molan, MBE, the discoverer of the unique antibacterial activity in manuka honey.
“There are things in this book even I didn’t know about manuka. I literally couldn’t put it down.”

Manuka: The Biography of an Extraordinary Honey chronicles the remarkable ‘rags-to-riches’ story of manuka honey, as seen through the eyes of a New Zealand beekeeping specialist who watched it unfold from the very beginning. It’s a great tale of science, in which an inquisitive university lecturer found something totally unexpected in a product everyone had written off.

It’s also an entertaining account of the way that seemingly simple discovery caught the international media’s attention, helping enterprising New Zealanders to develop manuka honey-based products and take them all around the globe. But above all else it’s a story of hope for the future, sounding a note of optimism in a world that for good reason feels saddened and sometimes even afraid about the future of the special relationship we humans have always had with those marvellous creatures, the honey bees.

The Changing Man

Also available in Audiobook | eBook


A Mental Health Guide

Too many men are suffering with their emotional health issues in silence, and male suicide rates are high. Men are affected by everyday stress, high workloads, anxiety and depression, loss of confidence or identity, relationship breakdowns, family disruption, addictions and trauma — just the same as women. But society has placed a stigma on men’s mental health. Men have found it hard to reach out in the past because of a sense of shame that comes from our society. But men are changing. They are re-defining what it is to be ‘strong’, and are more open to understanding their emotions and reaching out for help.

The Changing Man: A Mental Health Guide explores a range of issues affecting men’s emotional health and wellbeing, and provides a collection of tried and tested tools to ensure no man suffers in silence again. From dealing with addiction, to bettering relationships, overcoming depression, working through sexuality concerns and realising that it is okay not to be okay, The Changing Man’s methods and knowledge may just change your emotional health for the better. No shame. No silence. No anger.

There is nothing so fascinating as the human brain. Over the past couple of decades, advances in technology have made possible new and exciting insights into how the brain grows, learns and operates.

It ‘translates’ what neuroscience is telling us about the development of the brain from infancy to the early school years and explains how this knowledge can help us deal with the everyday realities of raising healthy and happy children.

So if you’ve ever wondered whether enrolling your three-year-old in enrichment programs will give them a head start in life, or have simply despaired at your four-year-old’s inability to sit still, you’ll find the book Nurturing a Healthy Mind essential reading.
