  • E-Book
  • $12.99

Empowering parents to mentor and prepare their sons for life.

Every parent of a teenage boy knows there are certain conversations they must have with their son. But too often they put them off - or don't have them at all - because they simply don't know where to start. Internationally recognised in the field of raising and educating boys, Dr Tim Hawkes provides practical, accessible and invaluable advice about how to get these discussions started.

Helping parents to negotiate their way through what can be difficult territory, Dr Hawkes explores the why, what and how of ten key topics: love, identity, values, leadership, achievement, sex, money, health, living together and resilience. For each topic, Dr Hawkes offers ideas about how parents can share their own experiences, values and knowledge with their sons.

This book will help you prepare your son for adulthood.

Expecting Better

Emily Oster
Authors:
Emily Oster

A groundbreaking guide to pregnancy: empowers women with the facts and allows them to make their own decisions. FREAKANOMICS meets WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU'RE EXPECTING.Award-winning Emily Oster debunks myths about pregnancy to empower women while they're expecting.Pregnant women are often treated as if they were children, given long lists of items to avoid - alcohol, caffeine, sushi - without any real explanation from their doctors about why. They hear frightening and contradictory myths about everything from weight gain to sleeping on your back to bed rest from friends and pregnancy books. In EXPECTING BETTER, Oster shows that the information given to pregnant women is sometimes wrong and almost always oversimplified.EXPECTING BETTER overturns standard recommendations for alcohol, caffeine, sushi, bed rest and induction, while putting in context the blanket guidelines for fetal testing, weight gain, risks of pregnancy over the age of 35, and nausea, among others.Oster offers the real-world advice one would never get at the doctor's office. Knowing that the health of your baby is paramount, readers can know more and worry less. Having the numbers is a tremendous relief - and so is the occasional glass of wine.

Social Psychology: A Complete Introduction: Teach Yourself

Paul Seager
Authors:
Paul Seager

Written by Dr Paul Seager, a social psychology specialist who teaches at the University of Central Lancashire in Preston, SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY is designed to give you everything you need to succeed, all in one place. It covers key areas that students are expected to be confident in, outlining the basics in clear jargon-free English, and then provides added-value features like summaries of key studies, lists of questions to test your understanding of the concepts covered, and a 'Food for thought' section at the end of each chapter which challenges you to put the academic theories to practical use. The book uses a structure that mirrors many university courses on social psychology - starting off by explaining what social psychology is and how it is researched, before exploring a wide variety of the fascinating areas social psychologists have looked at in both classic and lesser-known studies. Areas covered include: the self; attributions; social cognition; interpersonal attraction; social influence; attitudes and persuasion; prosocial behaviour; aggression; groups; leadership; group decision making; intergroup behaviour; and prejudice. A final chapter looks at how social psychology can, and has been, applied in the real world to make a difference. 'Teach Yourself' titles employ the 'Breakthrough method', which is designed specifically to overcome problems that students face. - Problem: "I find it difficult to remember what I've read."; Solution: this book includes end-of-chapter summaries and questions to test your understanding. - Problem: "Most books mention important other sources, but I can never find them in time."; Solution: this book includes fully referenced quotes ready to use in your essay or exam, and each chapter lists further suggested readings for each topic. - Problem: "Lots of introductory books turn out to cover totally different topics than my course."; Solution: this book is written by a current university lecturer who understands what students are expected to know.

Leading a team just got easierWe live in a world of teams made up of all kinds of people. We see this every day on TV, in newspapers and on the web - it might news about a winning sports team, a company's leadership team who have succeeded in buying another company or it might be a about a group of homeowners who have won a battle against a big developer. This book is aimed at helping all of us no matter what kinds of teams we might need to lead - it might be a group of people running a country, playing a sport for university, organizing a Church fete, leading a start-up company, or managing a global multinational group. All such teams have leaders, who are those individuals given the task of ensuring that their team works well together to achieve whatever goals and objectives are required. Very few if any of us will spend our entire lives without at some point leading other people even if only for a short time and in many cases we often lead others without having a formal leadership title.In seven chapters, this book will walk you through the entire process of successfully leading and managing a team, showing you the key dos and don'ts and spelling out where you need to put special attention and focus. These seven chapters cover:- How to get started with a team, exploring what a great team looks like and how it performs, and how to create a new team from scratch with individuals who bring their own habits, skills and expectations- The stages of development of a team and how a new manager can gain the respect and understanding of a team - The importance of aligning a team and setting common goals and expectations with clear agreement on a mission, vision and values.- How to create a team culture and processes of excellent communication, with clearly understood expectations, well run team meetings and discussions, and the minimizing of any conflict and gossip- How to work with remote or virtual team members where face-to-face meetings are difficult to arrange- How to identify and work with problematic and nonperforming members of your team and how to balancefairness and discipline- How to ensure that each team member's job role is clear and that the work is efficiently delegated and shared among the team members- How to grow your team through excellent training and development, including coaching, mentoring and on-thejob training- How to turn a good team into a team with a culture of excellence- How to create a self-functioning team which can operate in your absence and in which you have groomed a successor to take over from you if needed.

Dark Space

Marianne de Pierres
Authors:
Marianne de Pierres

While drifting in space, lost, due to navigational failure, a mineral scout discovers God. When word gets out, academics from the studiums across Orion scramble to gain the Entity's favour. However, not all the sentients of Orion hold this 'god' in awe - some, like the philosophers of Scolar and the Transhuman's of Extropy are deeply suspicious.Onto the grand stage of inter-planetary academic politics, intellectual conceit and dubious theology walks Baronessa Mira Fedor. Her planet has been torn apart by the invasion of a race of giant tardigrades. Only the Orion League of Sentient Species can lend aid, but OLOSS are preoccupied with communicating with god. Mira, together with the larrikin, misogynist Jo-Jo Rasterovich, is left to her own resources to find help. In doing so she unmasks a galaxy-size intrigue. But will she live long enough to tell anyone...?

Fierce Leadership

Susan Scott
Authors:
Susan Scott

Hire smart people. . .', 'Hold people accountable. . .', 'Focus on the client. . .' For years, these mantras have been blindly adopted by business leaders everywhere but, as Susan Scott shows, these so-called best practices are ineffectual, cost companies vast sums and drive away the most valuable employees and customers. Yet they are so deeply ingrained in our organisational culture that no one has questioned them, until now.Informed by over a decade of research and work with CEOs and senior executives of the world's leading companies, Susan Scott reveals why these established practices are so wrongheaded and shows you how to spot the signs that you are falling prey to them and why they are adversely affecting your business. She then, in her direct, no-nonsense style, suggests a series of surprising and smart alternatives that you should put in their place.

Tom Smith's Cricket Umpiring And Scoring

Tom Smith
Authors:
Tom Smith

Tom Smith first wrote his guide for umpires and scorers in 1980. Since then, his indispensable guide has gone through six fully-revised editions. The 'new' Tom Smith is the first to be fully redesigned and updated for the 21st century. Its publication coincides with international recognition that there should be one universal standard for the training of umpires whatever country they operate in.The 'new' Tom Smith incorporates the full 2000 Code of the Laws of Cricket with subsequent amendments as ratified by the MCC and international and national cricket bodies. The freshly drawn diagrams are easy to follow and will be of value not only to umpires and scorers, but to all lovers of the game of cricket.As Richie Benaud, the great Australian cricketer and commentator, has said, he never goes without his copy of 'Tom Smith'. Nor should any spectator who wishes to feel fully qualified in discussing the application of the Laws of Cricket to the game.David Lloyd says, 'Tom Smith is just as valuable a piece of kit as Hawkeye, Snicko and Hotspot in the Sky Sports commentary box, its interpretation of the Laws of the game is the first thing we turn to regarding decisions. it's a "must-have" alongside the Laws of cricket.'
