            Pearls of wisdom contained in proverbs - whakatauk I - have been gifted from generation to generation as an intrinsic part of the Maori world. As powerful metaphors, they combine analogy and cultural history in the most economical of words. Short and insightful, they surprise, en...gendering reflection, learning and personal growth. Mauri Ora links whakatauk I to key personal virtues idealised across cultures and generations. The virtues - wisdom, courage, compassion, integrity, self-mastery and belief - stem from the science of positive psychology; the study of how to live a better life. Illustrated throughout with wonderful photographs from an old world, this book draws on traditional wisdom to provide a recipe for personal effectiveness and leadership, and a rewarding connection of Maori knowledge to contemporary thinking about personal happiness and fulfilment.

            Gottfried Lindauer, the Bohemian painter, is about to sail to England. He'snjust begun work on a painting of the Ngati Wai rangatira (chief) Paratene Te Manu when into his studio walks Paratene himself. Hearing of Lindauer's planned trip to England reminds Paratene of his own jou...rney there in 1863 with a party of Northern rangatira. Over the next three days, as he sits for Lindauer, Paratene retreats deeper and deeper into the past, from the triumphant meetings with royalty and aristocracy to the disintegration of the trip into estrangement, poverty, and mistrust.

            Set in the heart of rural New Zealand in the 1950s, this is the tale of two men, Tamihana Mahana (known as Bulibasha) and Rupeni Poata, fighting for Maori leadership in sport, kapa haka contests and finally the first every Golden Shears competition. Caught in the middle of thi...s clash between two great clans, Simeon, the teenage narrator and grandson of Bulibasha, struggles with his own feelings and loyalties as the battles rage. First published in 1994, Bulibasha won the Montana Book of the Year Award in 1995 and is probably Witi Ihimaera's most well-loved novel. It inspired the 2016 movie Mahana.

            Who Am I? is a question at the centre of what it is to be human and for artist Kelcy Taratoa (Ngai Te Rangi, Ngati Ranginui, Ngati Raukawa) it has formed the sub-ject of his painting for two decades. Kelcy Taratoa: Who Am I ?... Episode 001 is a bilingual English and Te Reo publi...cation written by Warren Feeney and translated by Heni Jacob (Ngati Raukawa). It traverses the artist's life from growing up in the suburbs of Levin to Te Haka a Te Tupere, the artist's wharenui at Rangiwaea marae in Tauranga Harbour. Through his paintings he contends that contemporary technology's virtual realities and appetite for destruction and distraction is undermining our humanity and experience of the world. Yet painting, that most ancient means of visual communication, is something that continues to remind us of our humanness.
