Peter Kilby's tells his affecting but inspiring true story in Never Call Me Mummy Again. Peter was just a toddler when his mother tragically died, trying to abort a child they simply couldn't support. When his father swiftly replaced her with his mistress, Peter made the mistake of calling her 'Mummy'. Dragged outside, trampled on and shouted at, Peter never made that mistake again. Peter tried time and time again to flee the terrible abuse that dominated his childhood, his hands held against burning stoves, being thrown from a window and even his small feet nailed to the floorboards to prevent his running away. In Never Call Me Mummy Again, the heartbreaking yet ultimately uplifting memoir, Peter Kilby tells of how he finally escaped the stepmother from hell. Peter Kilby's unique and moving story was picked up when he entered Penguin's hugely successful life-story competition with Saga Magazine.

On Boxing Day 2004, Rob, Paul, Matty and Rosie Forkan lost their parents in the tsunami that devastated Sri Lanka. Aged from eight to 17, they subsequently made a harrowing 200km trek across the decimated country to try and find their parents and get home. The bravery and ingenuity they displayed was a direct result of their unique upbringing. When disaster struck, they had been working for charities in the Middle East and India for four years. Taken out of school at a young age, they had received an unconventional global education, learning independence and emotional resilience. Almost a decade after the tsunami, the two eldest brothers, Rob and Paul, had a dream. They created the multinational brand, Gandys Flip Flops, in the front room of their rented flat, and also set up the charitable foundation, Orphans for Orphans, using 10% of their profits to support children deprived of essentials such as education, nutrition and medication. This is an enthralling, harrowing but ultimately uplifting journey from the slums of India and the tsunami, to the boardrooms of the City of London, Downing Street and beyond.

The #1 New York Times–bestselling author and child abuse survivor reveals the challenges that he still faces as an adult, as a husband, and as a father. In the blockbuster autobiography A Child Called “It”, Dave Pelzer shared the story of his childhood—one of the most dramatic and extreme stories of child abuse ever prosecuted in the state of California. As a child, Pelzer was beaten, starved, and abused both emotionally and physically by his alcoholic and mentally unstable mother. As a man, Pelzer went on to have love, happiness, a fulfilling career, and a family of his own. To many, Pelzer seemed to have found his happy ending. But for a child abuse survivor, living a normal adult life carries challenges and complications above and beyond those faced by most people. This book, the fifth in Pelzer’s nonfiction series, provides an honest and courageous look at the difficulties inherent in marriage, parenthood, work, and life from the perspective of someone who survived horrific physical and emotional terrors as a child—and who seeks to meet the responsibilities and complications of adult life with love, strength, and an open heart.

With Mothers Who Can't Love: A Healing Guide for Daughters, Susan Forward, Ph.D., author of the smash #1 bestseller Toxic Parents, offers a powerful look at the devastating impact unloving mothers have on their daughters—and provides clear, effective techniques for overcoming that painful legacy. In more than 35 years as a therapist, Forward has worked with large numbers of women struggling to escape the emotional damage inflicted by the women who raised them. Subjected to years of criticism, competition, role-reversal, smothering control, emotional neglect and abuse, these women are plagued by anxiety and depression, relationship problems, lack of confidence and difficulties with trust. They doubt their worth, and even their ability to love. Forward examines the Narcissistic Mother, the Competitive Mother, the Overly Enmeshed mother, the Control Freak, Mothers who need Mothering, and mothers who abuse or fail to protect their daughters from abuse. Filled with compelling case histories, Mothers Who Can’t Love outlines the self-help techniques Forward has developed to transform the lives of her clients, showing women how to overcome the pain of childhood and how to act in their own best interests. Warm and compassionate, Mothers Who Can’t Love offers daughters the emotional support and tools they need to heal themselves and rebuild their confidence and self-respect.

Like his talk show, this autobiography delivers more than the everyday - it's honest, informative and insightful - and is in Leighton's trademark style. For nearly 30 years, one voice has dominated the airwaves of New Zealand morning radio, sometimes infuriating his audience but always challenging it to embrace the concepts of individual responsibility, high standards and opinion based on sound knowledge. Now, for the first time, the previously private Leighton Smith unveils the person behind the impeccable voice and the conservative views: the religious upbringing; the less than stunning school years; the endless search for a career path; the personal traumas behind four marriages; and how he dealt with cancer. Here, too, we meet the influential figures who have helped shape the telling messages Leighton delivers to his audience each day, the political leaders he's jousted with over the years and the reasoning behind his stances on the pressing issues of his radio years; not to mention his astounding flirtation with horse racing, which led directly to his entry into wine-growing. It's all covered in this fascinating picture of the man who won not only the inaugural Best talk Host award in 1982 but also the most recent Best talkback Host of 2013 at the New Zealand Radio Awards.
