COMING TO IT:Selected Poems COMING TO IT:Selected Poems
$30.00 NZD
ISBN: 9780947503802
New Zealand's best-known and, arguably, best-loved poet, Sam Hunt’s latest collection Coming to it: Selected poems is is intended to replace both Doubtless: New and Selected and Knucklebones: Poems 1962-2012 (both out of print) and to ensure that a substantial selection of his poems remain available to the general reader. In Coming to it, a broad selection of Hunt's older poems sit ahead of his more recent work from Chords (2011), Salt River Songs (2016) as well as 19 brand new, previously unpublished poems written in 2018. As always, Hunt's unflinchingly honest, elegiac and moving poems roam around familiar themes of family, friends and lovers; landscapes and the play of the weather; and the challenges of ageing and mortality. Sam Hunt has had a remarkable and enduring career, and Coming to It is a fitting tribute to the quality of his poems.

Charting his decades of medical experience, Rowley touches on an array of issues, from the high-stakes management of tiny pre-term babies to the serious impacts of drugs, alcohol and technology on developing minds. Real-life cases and practical advice are interwoven throughout a candid, compassionate narrative. What’s revealed is a tender and profound portrait of a medical professional at the very centre of what matters – a doctor who always adopts a humane, holistic view and who writes openly about the personal impact of a career in medicine.
NO LIMITS: How Craig Heatley Became a Top New Zealand NO LIMITS: How Craig Heatley Became a Top New Zealand
$37.00 NZD
ISBN: 9781760633561
No Limits describes Craig Heatley's entrepreneurial life. It charts the good times and the bad, his philosophies, his approach to currency trading and the significance of becoming the first person from the southern hemisphere to be invited to join the world's most prestigious golf club, Augusta National, home of the Masters. Craig Heatley was still at high school when he created a subdivision on the back of $200 saved from his paper round. A few years later, building a mini-golf course launched a business that in 1986 saw him become the youngest person to have then featured in the National Business Review's Rich List. But it is Sky Television that was his boldest and most precarious undertaking. The fledgling company teetered in the early nineties as rugby suffered its own crisis, torn between its amateur heritage and the forces of professionalism. Heatley could see the answer. Making it happen is part of his story.

$45.00 NZD
ISBN: 9781509856688
New Zealand rugby is a dynasty that transcends all national barriers. As a culture and a model of humility and consistent success, which have led them to three Rugby World Cups, the world of rugby continues to look to the New Zealand model for guidance. Traditionally, the renowned All Blacks and those charged with guiding them have kept their rules of engagement close to their chests. However now, New Zealand Rugby has agreed to open their doors to rugby writer Peter Bills to consider the reasons behind their dominance of the world game in the build-up towards the Lions Series in 2017 and Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan. Through this book, Peter Bills draws on case studies and interviews of officials, coaches and players, as well as people involved in all elements of rugby right across New Zealand. The Jersey tells an extraordinary story with unprecedented access and insight, and explores the basic requirements and immense challenges required not only to become number one in the world, but remain consistently at the top.
