FLAWSOME by GEORGIA MURCH
The journey to being whole is learning to be holey
In spite of ever-increasing pressures around us, we’re often our own biggest critic. Not good enough has become an unnecessary mantra – and it’s time this stopped. In the new book, Flawsome: The journey to being whole is learning to be holey (RRP $29.95), author and feedback expert Georgia Murch says it’s time for us to accept our imperfections and learn to be ourselves, flaws and all.
Murch shows readers that being flawsome is not just about accepting your inadequacies or the things you hide – it’s understanding where they come from and rewriting how you see yourself, so you can live authentically as you are. After all, your flaws make you, you. Flawsome is a call to arms to drop your search for perfection and be OK with being enough, and Murch shows that it’s easier to reach than you might think. Practical, engaging and accessibly written, Flawsome is a must-read for those looking to discover the awesome in being yourself.

HACKING HAPPINESS by PENNY LOCASO
How to intentionally adapt and shape the future you want
In a time of global crisis the traditional pathway to success and ultimately happiness no longer exists. Success today isn’t about the perfect plan to achieve more. A brave new world is calling us to throw out the rulebook and leap into the unknown. But how can we learn to navigate and thrive in uncertainty? That’s exactly what Hacking Happiness (Wiley $29.95, 1 Sep 2020) author and TedX speaker Penny Locaso did when she turned her life upside-down to tackle our happiness-deficit problem. She left a sixteen-year career as an executive, relocated a family from Perth back to Melbourne, left an 18-year relationship and started her own purpose-driven company. Penny emerged as the world’s first Happiness Hacker and the inventor of the Intentional Adaptability Quotient®: a quantifiable method for individuals and organisations to become more skilful at, and even relish, adapting to rapid change.
THE FLYING BUSHMAN by GREG KEYNES
The fascinating true story of a man’s life above the outback
Growing up on the family property in outback WA, Greg Keynes’ childhood seemed idyllic. Poignant memories of exploring with his dogs; hunting, working and joking with the local Yamatji people. Breaking free from family ties as a young man, Greg began his own aerial mustering business and fell in love. Life was sweet, until a routine muster in the rocky gorges of the Hamersley Range went horribly wrong and Greg faced the reality that he may never walk again.
The Flying Bushman (Gelding Street Press, 2 Sep, $29.99) is more than a story of memories in the outback, it’s a collective reminder of the true Australian Spirit with our resilience, courage and wild hearts that survive the harsh and at times unforgiving terrains that ultimately make us who we are. Set along the majestic blue ranges and scouring river beds of the Pilbara, The Flying Bushman is a lavishly illustrated and authentic Australian story of life above the land.
