Six years in the making, The Pink Line follows protagonists from nine countries all over the globe to tell the story of how “LGBT Rights” became one of the world's new human rights frontiers in the second decade of the 21st Century.

From refugees in South Africa to activists in Egypt, transgender women in Russia and transitioning teens in the American MidWest, The Pink Line folds intimate and deeply affecting stories of individuals, families and communities into a definitive account of how the world has changed, so dramatically, in just a decade. And in doing so he reveals a troubling new equation that has come in to play: while same-sex marriage and gender transition are now celebrated in some parts of the world, laws to criminalise homosexuality and gender non-conformity have been strengthened in others.

In a work of great scope and wonderful storytelling, this is the groundbreaking, definitive account of how issues of sexuality and gender identity divide and unite the world today.

Your big life is made up of a collection of all of your small moments. Our big world is a made up of a collection of all of our small actions. This book is about where to begin.

From the Academy Award-winning actor, an unconventional memoir filled with raucous stories, outlaw wisdom, and lessons learned the hard way about living with greater satisfaction.

I've been in this life for fifty years, been trying to work out its riddle for forty-two, and been keeping diaries of clues to that riddle for the last thirty-five. Notes about successes and failures, joys and sorrows, things that made me marvel, and things that made me laugh out loud. How to be fair. How to have less stress. How to have fun. How to hurt people less. How to get hurt less. How to be a good man. How to have meaning in life. How to be more me.

Recently, I worked up the courage to sit down with those diaries. I found stories I experienced, lessons I learned and forgot, poems, prayers, prescriptions, beliefs about what matters, some great photographs, and a whole bunch of bumper stickers. I found a reliable theme, an approach to living that gave me more satisfaction, at the time, and still: If you know how, and when, to deal with life's challenges - how to get relative with the inevitable - you can enjoy a state of success I call 'catching greenlights.'

So I took a one-way ticket to the desert and wrote this book: an album, a record, a story of my life so far. This is fifty years of my sights and seens, felts and figured-outs, cools and shamefuls. Graces, truths, and beauties of brutality. Getting away withs, getting caughts, and getting wets while trying to dance between the raindrops.

Hopefully, it's medicine that tastes good, a couple of aspirin instead of the infirmary, a spaceship to Mars without needing your pilot's license, going to church without having to be born again, and laughing through the tears.

It's a love letter. To life.

It's also a guide to catching more greenlights-and to realising that the yellows and reds eventually turn green too.

Good luck.

‘You are what you eat’ seems like such an obvious statement, so why then is it so hard to eat well and satisfy our cravings in a healthy way?

This cookbook is for all those people who are tired of being told to eat more fruit and vegetables and reduce their intake of refined and processed foods, but who are rarely given any recipes or advice on how to put those guidelines into practice in a way that doesn’t compromise on the flavour and enjoyment of our food. It is also for the growing number of people who suffer from intolerances to certain food groups, particularly wheat and dairy.

The Guilt-free Gourmet is not about diet, weight loss or denial; it is simply showing you the various ways you can use alternative ingredients to achieve the same decadent results as the original, but as the strapline indicates, the recipes are without wheat, dairy or cane sugar. Recipes range from simple sharing plates to more exotic dishes such as Thai curry and fiery Korean noodles to Japanese tempura and Moroccan tagines.

Today many of us are looking to eat less dairy, meat and fish, as the host of environmental, ethical and health-related reasons for doing so stack up. The concept of not centring every meal around an animal-based protein is well on its way to settling into mainstream society but out there, is a whole middle-ground of home-cooks, somewhere between carnivore and vegan, who are doing their best to reduce meat and fish consumption, but enjoying it on occasion when the urge strikes. For these so-called flexitarians, choices are less about adopting a rigid regime, and more about an organic attempt to eat a mainly plant-based diet.

This timely cookbook is a collection of modern recipes and comfort food classics, all of which feature simple adaptations that can make them suitable for vegans, vegetarians, pescatarians and meat-eaters. No longer will you have to juggle between multiple cookbooks or haphazardly hash together a meaty ending to a recipe depending on your appetite or cravings!

Swimming With Sharks will inspire ‘a-ha’ moments that will make it more fun to be at work – or maybe even make it possible for your business to survive the turbulent economic seas that seem synonymous with building a business in the 21st century.

Entrepreneur, marketing and communications expert Gavin Moffat found remarkable parallels between his two passions: consulting to businesses as they navigate through change, and SCUBA and technical diving. While one seems to be all work and the other all play, achieving success in either requires very similar approaches.

Gavin’s style is to-the-point, irreverent, and frequently funny. This book is a conversation with a friend who asks questions that may make you squirm a little or maybe even wriggle in discomfort. But they’re questions that will make you think – and change the way you think too. Including contributions from other smart disruptive thinkers, Swimming With Sharks offers exceptional food for thought on these topics and provides guidelines on how to take action.

In business, as in life and sport, you never know it all. Lifelong learning is the name of the game. You can always improve, do things differently and add more value to your customers. You can never tick ‘learning’ off your to-do list.

Upstream (Paperback): Dan Heath Upstream (Paperback)
Dan Heath 1
R340 R272 Discovery Miles 2 720 Save R68 (20%) In stock

New York Times bestselling author Dan Heath asks what happens when we take our thinking upstream and try to prevent problems before they happen.

Why 'solve' crimes when we could stop them being committed?
Why treat chronic diseases when they could be prevented from developing?
Why provide shelter for the homeless rather than working to keep people housed in the first place?

Why do our efforts skew so heavily towards reaction rather than prevention? We all have a tendency to work around problems. We are resourceful. We improvise. We’re so accustomed to managing emergencies as they strike that we often don’t stop to think about how we could prevent crises before they happen.

The notion of preventing problems is an evergreen need in our professional and daily lives. Which makes Upstream a book for skeptical optimists - across all sectors - who know it's not going to be easy, but who believe that we have the capacity to solve some of our thorniest issues, if only we start to think about the system rather than the symptoms. Drawing on insights from Dan Heath's extensive research, as well as hundreds of new interviews with unconventional problem solvers, he delivers practical solutions for preventing problems rather than simply reacting to them.

Be the reason your students succeed. .

Do you remember that teacher who literally changed your life? Most likely, it wasn't the teacher who stood in front of the class and lectured every day, filling your little head with information. In fact, you probably can't even remember specifically "what" you learned in the class, only that you had some sort of awakening. As coauthor Tommie Lindsay points out, a great teacher doesn't merely provide knowledge but rather "takes away the barriers to learning.," .

"It Doesn't Take a Genius" will help you become that teacher. Written by two nationally acclaimed educators, this inspirational collection of real-life lessons takes you past the long hours, low pay, and school politics that come to dominate the job and provides a refreshing reminder of why you entered the profession in the first place: to change lives for the better. "It Doesn't Take a Genius" will also help parents identify and break through that seemingly invisible barrier preventing their kids from reaching their highest potential.. .

Tommie Lindsey and Randall McCutcheon have divided their book into five sections, each focusing on a single "truth" they believe will motivate students and forge them into individuals who want to be engaged in their education and the outside world.. .

These five "truths" will aid you in being the model all kids need and deserve--regardless of their background. The authors' ideas, presented in short, easy-to-digest articles, are complemented with first-hand success stories written by former students who defied the odds, including inner-city kids with at-risk backgrounds.. .

Every student has a purpose in this world, and it's one of life'sgreat gifts to help him or her find it. Practical and insightful, "It Doesn't Take a Genius" arms you with realistic strategies to create students who will go out into the world not only smarter but--more important--motivated, confident, and curious.. .

Learn how to become the teacher you always wanted to be and to help your students realize their potential. .

Each and every student is fertile ground for learning, even those who seem bored, distracted, or even bitter. All they need is care and attention. Whether you are a struggling teacher or frustrated parent, "It Doesn't Take a Genius" helps you foster success in even the most apathetic of students.. .

The authors, who hold numerous teaching awards, share their secrets of turning kids from all walks of life into successful students who go on to lead fulfilling, productive lives in adulthood. "It Doesn't Take a Genius" is organized into five universal "truths" behind making great possibilities come true. Accompanying the authors' inspiring ideas are first-hand accounts from their former students describing how they turned their lives around to become successful lawyers, playwrights, professors, and more.. .

Written with affection and sincerity--and featuring cartoons by acclaimed cartoonist Sidney Harris--"It Doesn't Take a Genius" is a refreshing response to detached behavioral theory, dry teaching manuals, and negative media stories concerning teachers and our education system. It provides the tools you need to help students unlock their enormous potential. Best of all, you'll come away with the very real but often forgotten fact that the desire to build students into curious, caring members of society isn't a pipedream. It's a calling.. .

'This generous, useful and important book is a delight to read and will fundamentally change the way you interact with people' - Mikael Krogerus and Roman Tschappeler, authors of The Communication Book How often do you interrupt? How often do people interrupt you? Can you remember the last time someone listened to you all the way through your thinking? In her new book, Nancy Kline, bestselling author of Time To Think, makes this radical proposal: 'I won't Interrupt you' is a promise that changes everything. It deepens relationships, spawns dignity, raises the intelligence of groups, and enriches every conversation. It may, in fact, be the most important promise we ever make. And the hardest to keep. This promise matters because when we interrupt each other, we interrupt our thinking, and that interrupts the quality of everything we do. Nancy has spent the last three decades researching independent thinking and the barriers that prevent us from thinking for ourselves. In The Promise That Changes Everything Nancy shares insights into the nature of interruption, case studies and stories from her work with clients, as well as simple ways to change how we behave with each other so that this promise can change our lives.
