How To Start Out Or Over On A Shoestring

RRP $18.99

Everything you ever wanted to know about starting out (or over) on a shoestring. This book covers everything from clothing and personal items to furniture, appliances and transportation with everything in-between.

The author draws from personal experience to show others that you CAN start out (or over) with very little and you CAN make a success of the endeavor. You don't have to suffer, but you do have to have certain basic items. This book takes the guesswork out of what you will need.


There Was An Old Woman Who Lived In A Shoe

RRP $13.99

Jane Cabrera s boldly colored rendition of a favorite rhyme gets an ecofriendly spin. This old woman and her household of high-spirited children and talented pets are resourceful. Together they repair their broken furniture, find alternative modes of transportation when the car breaks down and remake worn clothing with colorful patches. Sheet music for piano, voice and guitar are included in the book."


Sport Coaching Concepts

RRP $409.99

Successful sports coaching involves so much more than a simplistic application of sport psychology to a program of physical training and skill development. The relationship between coach and athlete is complex, and successful coaches at all levels of sport should be able to develop a deeper understanding of the role of the coach, the coaching process, and alternative approaches to coaching practice.

Sports Coaching Concepts was the first textbook to offer a comprehensive introduction to the theoretical issues that underpin sports coaching practice and to outline a complete conceptual framework with which to understand coaching behaviour, helping to establish sports coaching as a substantial academic discipline in the process. Now in a fully revised and updated new edition, the book explains why a conceptual approach to sports coaching is more important than ever before, using practice-orientated analysis to help students develop a full understanding of coaching theory and technique.

This edition draws on a decade's worth of research and academic and professional literature, reflecting the profound changes in coach development and coach education during that period. Covering all the key topics, themes and issues contained within the sports coaching curriculum, this edition also includes six completely new chapters, on the evolution of coaching theory, coaches' expertise, decision-making, social perspectives on the coach-athlete relationship, social inclusion, and principles of coach development.

Each chapter contains a full range of pedagogical features to aid learning and understanding, including highlighted key concepts, discussion questions, practical projects, annotated guides to further reading, new case study material, and comment from practising coaches. A new companion website provides additional teaching and learning resources, including self-test questions and useful weblinks for students, and Powerpoint slides and a test bank for lecturers. Sports Coaching Concepts is still essential reading for all students of sports coaching and any serious coach looking to develop and extend their own coaching practice.


Hope In A Ballet Shoe

RRP $15.99

From war-torn Sierra Leone to the US, to dancing for the Dutch National Ballet, this is a heartwrenching, life-affirming true story of a young girl orphaned by war and saved by ballet.

Growing up in war-torn Sierra Leone, Michaela DePrince witnesses atrocities that no child ever should. Her father is killed by rebels and her mother dies of famine. Sent to an orphanage, Michaela is mistreated and she sees the brutal murder of her favourite teachers.

But there is hope: the Harmattan wind blows a magazine through the orphanage gates. Michaela picks it up and sees a beautiful image of a young woman dancing. One day, she thinks, I want to be this happy.

And then Michaela and her best friend are adopted by an American couple and Michaela can take the dance lessons she's dreamed of since finding her picture.

Life in the States isn't without difficulties. Unfortunately, tragedy can find its way to Michaela in America, too, and her past can feel like it's haunting her. The world of ballet is a racist one, and Michaela has to fight for a place amongst the ballet elite, hearing the words "America's not ready for a black girl ballerina".

And yet...

Today, Michaela is an international ballet star, dancing for The Dutch National Ballet at the age of 19.

A heart-breaking, inspiring autobiography by a teenager who shows us that, beyond everything, there is always hope for a better future.
