            In 2021, The Trusts Act 2019 comes into force. This is the first major trust law reform in New Zealand in 70 years. Many of the key changes are aimed at making trust law more accessible to both lawyers and the public, strengthening the ability of beneficiaries to hold trustees to... account. Anyone involved in a family trust will need to find out about the changes introduced by this new Act. Many will choose to wind up the trust, and those that keep them will need to change how they manage them, so this book is an essential tool. A family trust offers you the benefits, use and control of your assets. Clear and straight-forward, and aimed at the layperson, Family Trusts includes up-to-date advice by New Zealand's leading financial writer, with real-life examples and answers to commonly asked questions throughout. This book has sold well over 120,000 copies since it was first published and is an essential book for anyone curious about family trusts or involved with a trust. 'In my experience, 75 per cent of family trusts in New Zealand are so badly arranged or managed that they could easily be attacked and overturned in court... managing a trust badly is a bit like insuring the contents of your house but then going on holiday and leaving the doors wide open,' says Martin Hawes. This is the one book anyone involved with a family trust should own.

            How Rewriting Your Story Can Save Your Life From mindfulness to massage, pills to Pilates - Jehan Casinader tried it all, and none of it cured his depression. As an award-winning TV journalist, Jehan made a living from telling other people's stories - until he lost control of his... own. Increasingly suicidal, he wondered: was there something missing? This Is Not How It Ends chronicles Jehan's four-year descent into depression, and how he used the power of storytelling to climb out. In this gritty, vulnerable and life-affirming book, he argues that many of us think our brains are broken - but in fact, our stories are broken. We're playing poor characters in toxic stories, and our mental health is suffering as a result. Jehan began an experiment on himself. Could he rewrite his past? Could he reinvent his character? Could he create a whole new plot? Step-by-step, Jehan guides the reader through his process. Along the way, he learns about the power of suffering, courage and belonging. And he meets incredible people who have overcome mental distress by changing their own narratives. This Is Not How It Ends was written during the darkest months of Jehan's life, and is bound to challenge readers' understanding of mental illness. This practical book carries a message of hope: rewriting your story can save your life.

            It was winter. Lauren Keenan was separated from her husband, lonely, and miserable. Then came the Night of 27 Rejections of Doom: asking 27 people to hang out one Friday night, and every single person saying no. Her attempts to console herself by going to the movies and eating ic...e-cream were thwarted by dropping her ice-cream on the toilet floor while fumbling with her phone looking for text messages that weren't there. Lauren realised that this version of life wasn't working and that she needed to change it. It was time to try something new. 52 new things in fact. 52 new things in 52 weeks. From entering a public dance competition to trying fake lashes; from starting a Wine and Netflix club to zip-lining; from giving up drinking for six months to going to a music festival alone to feeding a lion; Lauren put herself out there with surprising results. Each chapter in The 52 Week Project looks at a wider societal issue - chapters include alcohol, parenting, loneliness and social media - and is informed by both Lauren's extensive research into social psychology and her observations about pop-culture. Her year of new experiences was a game changer. It repaired her relationship with her husband, she regained confidence in herself, and she realised how satisfying it can be to push yourself to your limits and to do things alone. She also learned that true happiness is more likely to be found in the everyday fabric of life.

            Pre-order the extraordinary, heartwarming autobiography of Captain Tom Moore, the man who captured the nation's heart in lockdown. Captain Tom Moore is an inspiration. At the height of the Covid-19 pandemic in early April this ninety-nine-year-old Second World War veteran came up... with a big idea: he'd walk laps of his garden to raise money for the NHS. Despite using a walking frame as well as recent treatment for cancer and a broken hip, he was determined to hit GBP1000 by his 100th birthday on 30th April. By the time the telegram from the Queen arrived, he'd raised over thirty million pounds. In this, his official autobiography, published in support of the creation of the Captain Tom Foundation, he tells us of his long and dramatic life. How his spirit was forged on the battlefields of Burma where victory was snatched from the jaws of defeat. How he fearlessly raced motorbikes competitively. How, in his nineties, he took off for the Himalayas and Everest, simply because he'd never been. And, finally, how this old soldier came to do his bit for the NHS, becoming the nation's hero in our darkest hour. A modest, decent, charming man with a can-do attitude and a twinkle in his eye, Captain Tom's story is that of a man whose insatiable curiosity and appetite for life have led him around so many unexpected corners - finding both adventure and joy. He only wanted to help other people - and yet he has inspired a nation to believe anything is possible by reminding us all it is never, ever too late.
