A high-achiever’s guide to a successful life

We all possess mental resources but only a few of us use them to their full potential. Instead, we apply the ‘working hard’ approach rather than the ‘working smart’ approach, and end up getting stuck in bad habits that drain our energy, blur our minds and disrupt our focus. Mindfulness expert Chantal Hofstee shares her expertise, inspiration and techniques to show you how to break that cycle so you can achieve new personal insights and implement practical strategies for sustainable success.

Wake of the Invercauld

USD $34.99 Tax Included

Shipwrecked in the sub-Antarctic: A great-granddaughter’s pilgrimage

This is the story of Robert Holding, a young English adventurer who was only 23 when he was shipwrecked with 19 others on the Auckland Islands in the sub-Antarctic Ocean in 1864. A year later he was rescued, along with only two of his shipmates. The others had perished from starvation and exposure.

It was when Madelene Ferguson Allen was researching the history of her birth family that she discovered she was Holding’s great-granddaughter. Then she learned of the existence of his account of the shipwreck and his enforced stay on the Aucklands, so she decided to retrace his footsteps. This book is an account of her journey, not only tracing the voyage of the Invercauld, but also the life of Robert Holding. Allen intersperses her narrative with extracts from Holding’s own journal, revealing an extraordinary tale of survival, in which conflict, cannibalism and cunning all play a part. The survivors’ rescue is in itself a hair-raising tale of intrigue and deception.

Wake of the Invercauld is a gripping story that will enthral anyone interested in true adventure at sea.

Godley

USD $35.00 Tax Included

The Man Behind the Myth.

Due for release in May 2019 in US & CAN. Pre-order your copy now. Out now in AU & NZ.

A comprehensive biography of General Sir Alexander Godley, presenting for the first time a fair and balanced look at his time as commander of the New Zealand Expeditionary Force (NZEF) and II ANZAC Corps during World War I. While Godley is generally remembered as being a poor field commander, Terry Kinloch argues that he was in fact a capable one who had little or no ability to influence the failed battles at Gallipoli and Passchendaele that he is often seen as responsible for. Kinloch also presents, for the first time, a detailed account of Godley’s long pre- and post-World War I career in the British Army. After the war Godley returned to the British Army, eventually reaching the rank of general before retiring in 1933. During his 48-year military career, he also served on operations in Rhodesia and South Africa, as a mounted infantry instructor, in the post-war British occupation force in Germany, and as the Governor of Gibraltar.
