              The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are (Audio CD / Audio, Unabridged edition)

              In The Gifts of Imperfection, Brene Brown - a leading expert on shame, authenticity, and belonging - shares ten guideposts on the power of Wholehearted Living - a way of engaging with the world from a place of worthiness. Each day we face a barrage of images and messages from soc...iety and the media telling us who, what, and how we should be. We are led to believe that if we could only look perfect and lead perfect lives, we'd no longer feel inadequate. So most of us perform, please, and perfect, all the while thinking, What if I can't keep all of these balls in the air? Why isn't everyone else working harder and living up to my expectations? What will people think if I fail or give up? When can I stop proving myself? In her 10 guideposts, Brown engages our minds, hearts, and spirits as she explores how we can cultivate the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think, No matter what gets done and how much is left undone, I am enough, and to go to bed at night thinking, Yes, I am sometimes afraid, but I am also brave. And, yes, I am imperfect and vulnerable, but that doesn't change the truth that I am worthy of love and belonging.

              You can have everything you want. If you sacrifice everything you believe ... Kihrin D'Mon is a wanted man after killing the Emperor of Quur - and not in a good way. So he heads for Jorat, to find the fourth person named in prophesy, who will either save or damn the world. He mee...ts Janel Theranon, who claims she already knows him. And she wants Kihrin's help in saving Jorat's capital from a dragon, who can only be slain with his sword's magic. Unwittingly, Kirin also finds himself at the centre of a rebellion. One which puts him in direct opposition to Relos Var, his old enemy. For too long, Janel's battled the wizard alone - even betraying her ideals to bring him down. However, Var owns one of the world's most powerful artefacts: the Name of All Things. It bestows knowledge, which Var uses to gain what he wants most. This is now Kihrin D'Mon - and the world may not survive the consequences.

              It's the summer of 1965, and the streets of Queens, New York, shimmer in a heatwave. One July morning, Ruth Malone wakes to find a bedroom window wide open and her two young children missing. After a desperate search, the police make a horrifying discovery. It's every mother's wo...rst nightmare. But Ruth Malone is not like other mothers ...Noting Ruth's perfectly made-up face and provocative clothing, the empty liquor bottles and love letters that litter her apartment, the detectives leap to the obvious conclusions, fuelled by neighbourhood gossip and speculation. Covering the story as his first big assignment, reporter Pete Wonicke at first can't help but do the same. But the longer he spends watching Ruth, the more he learns about the darker workings of the police and the press, and the underbelly of the city he now calls home. Soon, Pete begins to doubt everything he thought he knew. Ruth Malone is mesmerising, challenging and unknowable: is she really capable of murder? Based on real events, Little Deaths is an intoxicating story about love, morality and obsession, exploring the capacity for good and evil within us all.

Ari and her cursed wizard Merlin must travel back in time to the unenlightened Middle Ages and steal the King Arthur's Grail - the very definition of impossible. It's i...mperative that the time travellers not skew the timeline and alter the course of history. Coming face-to-face with the original Arthurian legend could produce a ripple effect that changes everything. Somehow Merlin forgot that the past can be even more dangerous than the future ...

              I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn't): Telling the Truth About Perfectionism, Inadequacy and Power (Audio disc / Other, Unabridged edition)

              #1 New York Times bestselling author Researcher and thought leader Dr Brene Brown offers a liberating study on the importance of our imperfections - both to our relationships and to our own sense of self. The quest for perfection is exhausting and unrelenting. We spend too much p...recious time and energy managing perception and creating carefully edited versions of ourselves to show to the world. As hard as we try, we can't seem to turn off the tapes that fill our heads with messages like, Never good enough! and What will people think? Why? What fuels this unattainable need to look like we always have it all together? At first glance, we might think its because we admire perfection, but that's not the case. We are actually the most attracted to people we consider to be authentic and down-to-earth. We love people who are real; we're drawn to those who both embrace their imperfections and radiate self-acceptance. There is a constant barrage of social expectations that teach us that being imperfect is synonymous with being inadequate. Everywhere we turn, there are messages that tell us who, what, and how were supposed to be. So, we learn to hide our struggles and protect ourselves from shame, judgement, criticism, and blame by seeking safety in pretending and perfection. Based on seven years of ground-breaking research and hundreds of interviews, I Thought It Was Just Me shines a long-overdue light on an important truth: our imperfections are what connect us to each other and to our humanity. Our vulnerabilities are not weaknesses; they are powerful reminders to keep our hearts and minds open to the reality that we're all in this together.
