The Kelly Gang: Or, The Outlaws of the Wombat Ranges was produced by George Wilson Hall, the owner of the Mansfield Guardian in 1879. It is the first and rarest book on Ned Kelly, there being only four copies known to exist, with none in private hands.

Description:

Jamie watches the Queensland town beneath him from the sheltered branches of the mango tree. Through days of shimmering heat choked with red dust to days of rainstorms bringing mud to the mangroves, everything is as it should be - the sights and sounds and smells are as familiar to him as the everlasting childhood in which they appear. Then everything changes overnight when he falls in love. A tender, fumbling first love that flowed and ebbed just as suddenly. And in its wake came death, the sudden shocking death of someone he loved.
 
Ronald McKie "...is a true professional... a super word-handler... This is a novel which bears the mark of the craftsman who is master of the language." - from the report of judges of the Miles Franklin Award, 1974.

Description:

The Matilda Principle offers a coaching approach that builds positive teams regardless of organisational culture. It builds trust, motivation and positivity without attracting attention and without rocking the boat. In other words, it is covert team building.
As a positive manager, you want people to do more than just show up. You also want people to enjoy working for you. You want them to trust you, to be motivated and loyal. In short, you want a positive team.
But you also know your hands are tied. Decisions about better pay and conditions are made above your pay grade. The HR department determines how performance reviews and job design are managed. And your own boss isn’t going to allow your team to work differently to other teams.
But what if you could create a positive team under the radar? What if team building could be done without permission, as an act of creative subversion?
In this book, Brad Desmond combines his wealth of experience as a psychologist and corporate trainer with cutting-edge studies into coaching and team building.
With The Matilda Principle you will better connect with your people and bring out their best, leaving others to guess your secret.

Description:

Throughout all the game of war, in every Age, there has been no task so fascinating, so alive with thrills, as that of the scout. Against an enemy army he plays a lone hand as does the sniper. But the scout's job is not to hide and kill, his is to press forward and see, but never be seen. And - he must return.
Ion Idriess's Australian guerrilla manual presents a rare insight into one of the most vital functions of small-unit combat intelligence - scouting. Despite great technical achievements in modern military science, the small-unit commander must still rely heavily on the eyes, ears and stealth of his scouts. Details obscure techniques often overlooked in most U.S. Army and Marine scouting texts.
The sixth book of the Australian Guerrilla series, The Scout, by Ion Idriess is now available. It is packed with knowledge and bush lore, and gives to any soldier who studies it most of the data necessary for the job of scouting. With the rest of the series it provides a small compact little work that, carried in the haversack, is a means of learning as you go. - Hobart Mercury, 1943.

Description:

'It was one of the most perfect days, only just warm enough, an ever so slight breeze I could see in the hairs on my arm and in the flutter of the flags across each end of the pool but couldn't feel. It must have been the exact temperature of my blood.'
On a cloudless afternoon, a man dives into a crowded swimming pool and disappears. Is it murder, a staged disappearance or alien abduction?
The Shallow End - a steady freestyle commentary on sex, celebrity and suntanning.
The Shallow End was shortlisted in the 2009 Commonwealth Writers Prize.

Description:

Ruthless as she is beautiful, when her own team falls down, Giuliett turns to the Australian Ares Outlaw Motor Cycle Gang leader, Robbie L for support and the two outsiders form an alliance.
Book three in the Serpent Series explores the influences of fate and loyalty as it picks apart the impacts of relationships stretched by grief, greed and honour. Underneath, the tale explores the shambolic Italian political landscape as well as the escalating tensions and arrangements between the southern Italian and Nigerian mafia clans. The Trouble with Serpents is set predominantly in Italy, as well as outback NSW, Fiji, Afghanistan, Russia and Poland.
Hiding in plain sight behind the hype of Carnevale in Venice, five mafia families meet to elect a new leader of their combined clans, the Capo di Tutti Capi. Nicholas Delarno has the right to lead, but until recently, everyone thought he was dead.
The Commission members are curious and nervous. In a show of leadership Nicholas claims the coveted role, bringing with him a return to the old ways, values and traditions that have stood the families well for decades. Something most of the clan members are keen to embrace after the chaotic leadership of former boss Don Carlo Seta. And they are willing to sacrifice their misgivings over the new Capo's missing years to satisfy their self-serving needs for secrecy, stability and economic power.

Trapping the Jap

ETT Imprint

Description:

'To attack and ambush, to snipe and raid is the job of the Australian Guerrilla. By rifle and grenade, by machine-gun and mortar to kill them, harry them, trap them, grant them not one moment's peace day or night. Break their hearts! Smash their outposts, blow up their tanks, bomb their communications, burn their airfields. To be a hawk by day and a shadow by night, to be a killer by day or night is the sworn job of the Australian Guerrilla on his native soil.'
 
These Australian guerrilla manuals were written by Ion Idriess at the time of imminent invasion by the Japanese. Following the massive bomb attack on Darwin in early 1942, Idriess wrote six manuals in one year to help aid the local militia, based on his extensive experience in guerrilla tactics in World War 1. As the Japanese continued to raid Sydney Harbour, Newcastle, Broome and Toowoomba, Idriess offered his knowledge on the art of warfare to Australians at home.

What Do I Do Now?
The Basics of Parenting Babies… Without Stress
Leon Levitt

Description:

Parental anxiety has reached epidemic proportions. We feel an overwhelming need to protect and fix our baby from the moment of birth, yet we often do not know what to do. We get frustrated and stressed, and when this overwhelms us, the whole family is at risk.
How can we catch stress early before parenting habits are first created?
Dr Leon Levitt is an experienced GP and obstetrician, with great success in easing the path for parents through these early months and years. With practical examples from his practice, he presents important principles, rules and strategies to better navigate and enjoy the journey.
He offers a complete paradigm shift in approach to babies. The newborn baby’s progressive, neurological development is completely different from the baby after four months, and therefore requires a different parental mindset.
For the baby in the first four months, the golden rule is First Calm Down. Dr Levitt describes the true goals of parenting and gives practical approaches to colic, reflux, feeding and sleep. This child behaves according to inherited automatic reflexes, so the parents are freed from the need to ‘fix’ the distressed baby, and can learn to meet the baby’s needs in the moment.
Seven strategies are explored, encouraging parents to withdraw from the specific issue with their baby and instead use one or more of these broad approaches to bring back calmness, control and joy.
The book concludes with a guide to common medical issues parents have with their baby.
