Have you ever looked at the lengthy school holiday dates and silently screamed in desperation? Have you gone part time yet are still doing a full-time workload? Have you ever been too afraid to ask about maternity benefits or flexible working? Do you constantly feel guilty about missing school events and secretly envious of other mums at the school gates who seem to be doing it all better than you? If any (or all) of the above rings true for you, you are NOT alone. While the demands of work are increasing with longer working hours and more pressure to remain 'switched on' to our phones and computers, the needs of our children and the world of school and childcare have stayed the same. Something has got to change before we all reach breaking point. The Mother of All Jobs brings together the wisdom of women who opened up about their experiences into a manifesto to help working parents thrive.

Events in this story of the "Mother of All Battles," as Saddam designated the 1991 war, are drawn from primary Iraqi sources, including government documents, video and audiotapes, maps, and photographs captured by U.S. forces in 2003 from the regime's archives and never intended for outsiders' eyes. The book is part of an official U.S. Joint Forces Command research project to examine contemporary warfare from the point of view of the adversary's archives and senior leader interviews. Its purpose is to stimulate thoughtful analyses of currently accepted lessons of the first Gulf War. While not a comprehensive history, the author's balanced Iraqi perspective of events between 1990 and 1991 takes full advantage of his unique access to material. The result is a completely unknown but fully documented view from the other side.

Following on from the success of Men Explain Things to Me comes a new collection of essays in which Rebecca Solnit opens up a feminism for all of us: one that doesn't stigmatize women's lives, whether they include spouses and children or not; that brings empathy to the silences in men's lives as well as the silencing of women's lives; celebrates the ways feminism has shifted in recent years to reclaim rape jokes, revise canons, and rethink our everyday lives.

The cardinal question that The Mother of All Minds seeks to answer is this one: where does the explosive advance in information, change and complexity of our modern times leave human thinking skills-leave the mind itself? This highly resourceful work''s confident answer: doing what it always does best! On the leading edges of the envelope, says the author of The Mother of All Minds, the human brain has been busy rewiring itself so as to prepare the mind for keeping pace with a restless, demanding, ever-changing world. Not every computer gets upgraded, of course. And not every mind will find itself propelled to the cutting edge. But in that amazing blaze of history since the middle of the last millennium''s final century, more and more contemporary minds have made such a move in their own self-interest. And more-perhaps many more-will do so soon. The Mother of All Minds is the story of this emerging migration to the mind of the future and what it can mean for you.Perhaps of more importance, it offers "how to" instructions for making sure you don''t miss this opportunity of all opportunities if it comes within your grasp. Opening the door to this latest example of the brain''s harnessing its natural powers for upgrade requires that you successfully undertake "the mother of all personal breakthroughs." Make the momentous leap across the gap separating traditional thinking skills of Alpha from the new ones articulated in The Mother of All Minds, and you land neurons first in the middle of what the author calls the new Beta mind (because it is a much-improved-on replacement in many categories for the species'' first great mind, one called-naturally-Alpha).Page after riveting page, this groundbreaking work tracks and narrates these kinds of late-breaking, over-the-top developments:o The mind''s unexpected developmental U-turn. Rather than break new ground by creating one revolutionary new thinking skill after another, the latest epic shift of mind has chosen to assemble an astonishing new "total thinking package" largely crafted from mental skills we already have in place. It''s a startling development that no "mind-change forecaster" anticipated. And one that only the pioneering American psychologist Dr. Clare W. Graves, whose work serves as an important backdrop for The Mother of All Minds, provided a persuasive model for understanding. o Booby traps everywhere! One by one and in detail, The Mother of All Minds warns of the dangers that can imperil us as we pass through each of Alpha''s multiple growth stages. Become marooned in any one of these "grooves of obsolescence" and there''s no further advance, either as an individual or as a species. And even advanced users of Alpha have found themselves stymied in recent decades by a yawning "psychological barrier reef of the mind." o A mind that reads itself, among others. Beta can offer a window on the world of others and on its own user''s world that can be little short of prescient. One of this new mind''s most powerful skills is its ability often to discern what any mind may be basing its current conclusions on. Such knowledge may offer you precisely the clues you need to save a relationship, cement a deal, inspire a new point of view, avoid disaster or initiate a myriad of other outcomes that can help you be a more effective and productive person. o A startling new role for a universal human experience. One of The Mother of All Minds''s most astonishing revelations (to be kept secret until you read the book) surrounds a groundbreaking new explanation of what lies behind endless eons of sorrow-processing and how they relate to the species'' relentless construction of a mind capable of processing more and more complexity.o A proxy for optimism. Optimism''s successor under Beta is what the author styles "hope"-timism. This new "take" on a traditional mental quality from Alpha stakes its new strength of purpose and commitment on an unshakable long-range faith that human nature will, despite its many, momentous challenges, have the chance to behave optimally, given its genetic coding. Numerous other surprising insights and developments await the reader of The Mother of All Minds. And by the end of the book, each reader will have important clues to where she or he currently resides on this remarkable odyssey of the species. The author believes many psychologically aware and ambitious persons will find the vision and roadmap spelled out in The Mother of All Minds for the near-term future of the planet and those responsible for it at this moment to be compelling and realistic. And will want to be in the thick of the demanding assignments ahead with every ounce of nitro their neurons can muster.Mr. Lynch''s argument is that the world needs all the Beta thinkers it can get, and needs them now. What better reason, he asks, does any intelligent person with a responsive conscience and a dream of betterment on Earth for the greater good need to commit to seeking out and traveling the road he''s mapping?The author has been a serious student for more than three decades of the interlocking mysteries of mind, society and the changing nature of our protean world. His book, Strategy of the Dolphin: Scoring a Win in a Chaotic World (written with Paul L. Kordis), was an international success a decade ago because-or so many readers in seven languages indicated-of its no-nonsense, authentic-feeling, bold-spirited counsel to thoughtful individuals and organizations caught up directly in the gathering, sometimes blinding change speeds of the Information Revolution. And now-he''s written a powerful, audacious, strategic, wisehearted sequel!

The Mother of All Hooks is a richly detailed description of the United States government's attempts to punish naval officers for sexual misconduct committed at the 1991 Tailhook Association convention in Las Vegas, Nevada. Journalist William H. McMichael describes the institutionalized mind-set that led to that misconduct and, in the face of an oppressive, politically charged investigation, to a large-scale failure to cooperate with government agents. This failure led to further investigative and prosecutorial excesses that ultimately doomed the effort to bring the guilty to justice; many of the guiltiest, hi fact, were given immunity to testify, and escaped severe punishment. At the same time, McMichael makes clear that Tailhook misconduct had been largely condoned for decades, but that senior officials failed to take responsibility for allowing such an atmosphere to flourish. This powerful expose is a shocking, eye-opening read for psychologists, criminologists, criminal justice professionals, and members of the U.S. military. The Tailhook Association convention had become infamous in naval circles for heavy drinking, hard partying, and sexual promiscuity. The most notable such ac-tivity was the "gauntlet"--a hallway lined by men through which selected women were forced to pass, only to be fondled. McMichael provides a rich narrative ac-count of how the United States Navy and the Pentagon mishandled investigation of events at the 1991 convention and subsequent hearings. In addition to exposing that approach's dramatic shortcomings, McMichael also provides insight into the Navy's history of open sexuality by its members while overseas, the fighter pilot psyche, and the larger issue of whether the Navy should be permitted to investigate its own transgressions. While more than thirty admirals eventually received what amounted to a hand slap, more than twenty junior officers received career-killing punitive letters of reprimand in closed-door administrative hearings. The Mother of All Hooks provides absorbing new details for all who think they "know" what hap-pened because of Tailhook--and why.

Sir Joseph Heenan, the most illustrious of all its secretaries, called the Department of Internal Affairs 'the mother of all departments'. A rather more earthy Australian friend of his called it the 'guts department'. In a sense, both were right. Written with liveliness and colour, illustrated with photographs, anecdotes and rich detail, The Mother of All Departments brings to life the history of the first and most important agency of government in nineteenth-century New Zealand. It traces the evolution of the Department of Internal Affairs from its genesis as the Colonial Secretary's Office in 1840 to the present day. Having spawned the Public Works, Justice, Health, Housing and Social Welfare departments it nonetheless still retains an extraordinary array of functions, each a small but integral part of a smoothly running democracy. Internal Affairs plays a significant role in some of the controversial issues of our day including citizenship, the reform of local government, royal visits, and the regulation of gambling and lotteries.

When the superannuated biblical Sarah learned that she would give birth to a son, she burst out laughing, and that son's name-Isaac-was forever a testimony to this moment of holy mirth. In The Mother of All Laughter: Sarah & the Genesis of Comedy, Terry Lindvall argues that there is a biblical place for laughter. At times, he lets truth be obscured by a good story (as when he cites the famous Neil Armstrong/"Mr. Gorsky" urban legend as fact), but he raises important points about humor for Christians.

What happens when a woman begins to ask herself: Should I have a baby?Women go through adolescence, menopause, some have a mid-life crisis, some might even have a quarter-life crisis, but there is another time of profound change and it doesn't have a name. Nell Frizzell is calling it The Flux. For most women it happens between the ages of twenty seven and forty but it isn't actually about age at all.The Flux is characterised by a preoccupation with one major question: Should I have a baby? And of course with the questions that inevitably follow: Do I want a baby? How do I know? Will I ever be ready? The Flux occurs when a woman realises that the options she's taken for granted throughout her teens and twenties are not available to her for ever. Every decision she makes in this time will have an impact; partner, holidays, job, postcode, savings, friendships - never mind your sense of self - nothing is off limits.Raw, hilarious and beguilingly honest, Nell Frizzell's account of The Panic Years is an arm around the shoulder and a call to arms. We are none of us alone in this, but we must share our experiences and those of the women around us - as Nell does - to lessen the struggle with one of life's biggest questions.

This is a personal story of a young woman's transition from independent newly-wed, through the anguish and depression of pregnancy, childbirth and motherhood, to the realisation that life, as she knew it, would never be the same again - not for her or her husband. Having plunged into the depths of despair, almost from the moment of conception, she wondered how she could possibly return to the cheerful, carefree person she had once been. The poignancy of this book centres particularly on the fact that the author felt like an outcast who had nothing in common with other pregnant mothers and new parents. How could she feel so low when everywhere around her were books and "experts" telling her how wonderful motherhood was and how overjoyed she should be feeling? With the support of family and friends and a long-suffering husband, two years on this young woman is a happy, caring mother of a beautiful son who is bonny, healthy and loved unconditionally. And she is back to normal. For more information please visit
