“Shall I shoot?”… “No don’t shoot”… I’m going to shoot”… “Don’t shoot!”. Rapid fire yelling within the confines of a vehicle stuck in the middle of stalled traffic, facing an unknown person wearing a full burqa peering into the car. Inches away from the driver’s face, a large hand pressed against the window. “We didn’t know if they were male or female or what was about to happen, but we were absolutely sure that if we shot this person, the crowd, including the armed policemen nearby, would turn on us and there’d be no escape.” In 2004, Lieutenant Colonel William Blaikie shipped out to Afghanistan, to head up a team dedicated to rebuilding the country after the war. As part of the New Zealand Defence Force, his skills lay in intelligence and communications – his mission was to form a team, develop and implement plans to work with USA and Coalition partners to help get Afghanistan back on its feet. Bill experienced situations that were beyond tense, often facing life and death situations and decision making that required deep and quick thinking, based on not always having enough information at hand. On his return home to New Zealand, his journey through coping with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder began, and the nightmares were not limited to sleep time. Everything has remained at life and death levels for Bill, and this book details how he and his wife Nancy have worked through suicide attempts, getting help, and finding answers to what is an epidemic level challenge for military personnel everywhere. “No amount of training can prepare you for what happens in your head after the uniforms are off and the guns are packed away.”

Provides parents with two new discipline methods that work based on the latest research and real life clinical experience. Presented in a humorous and engaging manner which makes it easy for parents to absorb plus the use of cartoons help emphasise key points. The new discipline methods are presented in an easy to understand step-by-step format, with limited jargon. Written by an experienced clinical practitioner, who researched discipline and the parent/child relationship for her Masters and PhD theses. The discipline methods can be used on children of all ages. Based on more than 10 years at the coal face, child, adolescent and adult therapist and researcher Dr Anna Martin brings us Stop, Think, Engage, a humorous and informative book that pulls together her own professional experience, her PhD research and numerous national and international studies. Parenting is challenging and is probably one of the most important jobs to undertake, yet parents have very little training and often need to learn as they go. They often question if what they are doing is right and helpful for their children’s development. Stop, Think, Engage provides parents with evidenced-based discipline methods using step-by-step guidelines and emphasising key points in a humorous way. They will learn how to identify ways to communicate effectively with their children and make changes that work! Parents suggest that there is a lot of conflicting information, this book provides them with an all-in-one parenting tool to help them understand why and what to change in their discipline approach. Dr Anna Martin is a child, adolescent and adult therapist who also works with families. Anna was awarded her PhD from the University of Auckland and her Master of Counselling from Massey University. Her PhD thesis involved undertaking research that explored the discipline process and the parent/child relationship. Anna also investigated some of the mainstream discipline methods widely used by parents. Anna found that the methods often did not provide the parent with the necessary tools to achieve a productive discipline event outcome, or support the parent-child relationship. Anna developed two new discipline methods (Awareness Discipline Method and the Reflective Discipline Method), based on the ‘Stop, Think, Engage’ format to encourage a new discipline paradigm. These methods support the bond between the parent and child and help work towards a productive discipline event outcome. Stop, Think, Engage brings Anna’s research, professional experience and the international research together in one easy reference book.

This book traces Graeme Thompson’s decision to leave the security of his family farm in remote Central Otago and take actions that would revolutionise the New Zealand meat industry, producing huge benefits to consumers around the world as well as to local farmers. For Graeme, these ventures meant fame and fortune and made the name of the dynamic company he founded, Fortex New Zealand Limited, synonymous with his name. But then the empire he had built came crashing down, throwing him into jail and all of the humiliation that went with it. Fortunately, Graeme’s courage, resilience and unwaver-ing support from family and friends saw him through that hard time. After leaving prison, he established a new and exciting business that has brought him a way of life and the tranquillity his previous fame could never offer. This riveting story also takes us through Graeme’s Scottish heritage, his childhood, boarding school and university days, marriage to his wife Barb, and the raising of their children. It is a story that not only exemplifies the extraordinary things that dynamic leadership of ourselves and others can achieve but also shows that we all have special resources to handle adversity and that success or failure is very much how we as individuals see it.
