              In this collection of poetry Glenn Colquhoun writes to the young people he works with at the Horowhenua Youth Health Service. Tender and poignant, wondering and wry, here his words become small scissors, knives, bandages and balms. Gathered together they represent an inventory of... one doctor's consultations taken home, responses to those moments he might have woken in the middle of the night and wished he had said better.

              Sometimes caring for patients can leave clinicians feeling overwhelmed with the daily tasks of doctoring. As an antidote, this book explores principles and assumptions of modern medicine seldom taught in medical school. Starting with the meaning of suffering and how the 'science'... of medicine has evolved, the authors use many clinical stories to provide a fresh perspective on the work and roles of the modern doctor. Based on many years of teaching family physicians, the book argues that being a doctor is much more than simply knowing biomedical facts and having good clinical skills. It explores some of the major challenges facing physicians, including the doctor-patient relationship, the 'heartsink' experience, and unwell patients for whom no disease can be found. The authors also introduce patient safety and self-care, two important issues for modern health professionals. For experienced doctors as well as for students and doctors in training, Being a Doctor moves beyond biomedicine, providing useful insights that explain how both doctors and patients think and behave.

              Amazing Tales of Aotearoa

              By Colquhoun, Glenn; Illustrated by Teo, Ali

              Amazing Tales of Aotearoa is a retelling of the old Maori myths in a fresh, contemporary voice for today's children. One of the stories is told in rap; one is in comic-strip format. The stories are narrated by characters who live in a village called 'That-place', which somehow cl...osely resembles the village of Te Tii, in the Bay of Islands, where the author Glenn Colquhoun lived. The book is illustrated throughout in similarly humorous, funky style by Ali Teo. Irresistible!
