            The Covid-19 lockdown in New Zealand caused fear, hardship and loss. Through this time of unprecedented national hardship, however, there emerged incredible stories of hope and optimism. Businesses innovated and found new ways to create value, communities came together in new way...s online, and families reconnected through time spent together. This book is a collection of those stories from across Aotearoa. It shows how New Zealand - and New Zealanders - respond when the going gets tough! The book was the brainchild of the well-known business Nanogirl Labs, which lost a full 18-month work calendar over a few days before the Covid-19 Level 4 lockdown. Founders Joe Davis and Michelle Dickinson (Nanogirl) could have closed their doors and headed home. Instead, they made a choice to change direction and four days later launched a brand-new, entirely online learning program for families. They tripled their staff headcount as the lockdown loomed, took on new premises, built a full production studio and went to market. They now have thousands of subscribers across 76 countries around the world, and are growing fast. Michelle and Joe have collaborated with writer and fellow innovator David Downs to collect the stories for this book.

            A handbook for women who want to understand their hormones and transform their lives for the better. Hormones affect our health throughout our lives. So why do we so often assume they are mainly 'a menopause thing', and leave it until hot flushes arrive to start taking them serio...usly? The truth is that before the age of 50, many women find that their hormone-related symptoms just aren't acknowledged, despite the impact they can have on almost every aspect of their lives, years before menopause hits. Hormone imbalances can cause joint pain, weight gain, migraines, acne, sleepless nights, loss of libido, and much more. Medical science has come a long way in recent years, though, and there are wonderful treatment options available, including HRT, diet, and exercise. So why don't more women know about them? Why are they still being told that they simply have to put up with these conditions? Written by two doctors from their experience as practitioners and as women, and full of pioneering knowledge from epigenetics, stress medicine, nutritional medicine, and modern hormone replacement therapy, Our Hormones, Our Health aims to show women how to live with good health, good humour, and much happiness - no matter what their stage of life.

            The clearest, most visual guide to space and the Universe for complete beginners to astronomy. Have you ever asked yourself how big the Universe is, how long it would take to get to the nearest star, or what came before the Big Bang? Then this is the book for you. How Space Works... shows you the different types of object in the Universe (so you'll know your pulsars from your quasars) and introduces you to some of the strangest and most wonderful things known to science, including antimatter fountains and the Fried Egg Galaxy. The book starts with an explanation of our view of the Universe from Earth, then takes a tour of the Solar System, the stars and galaxies, and the furthest reaches of space. The last chapter looks at the technology we use to explore the Universe, from the International Space Station to Mars rovers, and the new and revolutionary reusable rockets. Illustrated with bold graphics and step-by-step artworks - and peppered with bite-sized factoids and question-and- answer features - this is the perfect introduction to astronomy and space exploration.
