2. The Great Gatsby (Large Print Edition) - F. Scott Fitzgerald

Largeprint (Hardback) Our price: £19.99  - Currently in stock

The mysterious Jay Gatsby uses his fabulous wealth to create an enchanted world fit for his former love, Daisy Buchanan, now married to Tom. Daisy, though, is a romanticised figment of his own imagination, and the extraordinary world that he creates is equally illusory.

He gives lavish, legendary, parties where the guests and gate-crashers enjoy free-flowing champagne and cocktails and carefree hospitality. It is easy for modern readers to forget that the story takes place in the time of Prohibition (1920 to 1933) something that would have been immediately apparent when the book was first published. It enforces the nature of the unreal world that Gatsby creates, beyond the reach of the law and the police.

But a more sinister reality begins to break through, as idealised romantic figures prove to have human frailties and selfish motivations, and the grandiose world of Gatsby's creation crumbles and disillusion turns to tragedy.

11. Creative Meditation & Visualisation (Large Print 16pt) - David Fontana

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Visualization - creating a picture of something in the imagination - is one of the most important powers of the human mind - it helps to convey the message to the unconscious that a particular goal is possible, which prompts the unconscious to ''mobilize'' the latent abilities necessary to achieve it. In this inspiring and practical book, David Fontana shows how visualization can become even more powerful when practised as a form of meditation. All meditation practices give the mind a stimulus, and when a visualized image is used as that stimulus, it adds considerable force to the meditation. Meditation itself helps develop the power of concentration so that the mind can hold visualized images more clearly and consistently - and the better the concentration, the more likely it is that these images will bring results. Practising visualization within meditation has proved to be highly successful in enhancing human performance in a wide range of endeavours, such as healing one's own body, achieving athletic success, stimulating creativity, promoting career advancement and even inspiring confidence in social situations.

12. Quarterly Essay 48 After the Future Australia's New Extinction Crisis (Large Print 16pt) - Tim Flannery

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Australia is home to many animals and plants found nowhere else on earth, making Australians caretakers of a unique heritage in a land that tolerates few mistakes. Yet, in After the Future, Tim Flannery shows that this country is now on the brink of a new wave of extinctions, which threatens to leave our national parks as ''marsupial ghost towns.'' Why are species becoming extinct despite the tens of millions of dollars being spent to protect nature? And what more should be done? In this passionate and illuminating essay, Flannery tells the story of the human impact on the continent. He revisits his Future Eaters hypothesis, discussing how firestick farming helped to shape the ecology and preserve native fauna. He looks at the way recent governments, in tandem with an indifferent populace and a rabid libertarian right, have let environmental knowledge and commitments erode. Finally, he describes new approaches to wildlife conservation and argues that Australia must take the lead on these. This is an essay that rings the alarm on behalf of the natural world, and asks us to think again about protection of its irreplaceable riches. ''Such is the depth of public ignorance about Australia's extinction crisis that most people are unaware that it is occurring, while those who do know of it commonly believe that our national parks and reserves are safe places for threatened species. In fact the second extinction wave is now in full swing, and it's emptying our national parks and wildlife reserves as ruthlessly as other landscapes.'' - Tim Flannery, After the Future

20. Oh Baby... Birth, Babies & Motherhood Uncensored (Large Print 16pt) - Kathy Fray

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Refreshingly honest, openly frank and candidly blunt, this book has been written by a mother for other mothers. It oozes with warm fuzzies, it reeks of mumsy terms, it exudes realism in every paragraph and it is refreshing in its guiltless honesty. Modern first - time mothers are often alone - devoid of once traditional motherhood knowledge and practical support. Often previously self - confident women find themselves inconceivably isolated, hopelessly fumbling over everyday mothering tasks, enduring torturous levels of sleep deprivation, feeling desperately despondent and physiologically aching and leaking everywhere. This book provides supportive, caring advice - one Mum to another - while at the same time serving as an encyclopaedic medical reference regarding the mother and baby. Checked thoroughly by medical professionals, this book is a unique blend, like having access to a kind and gentle GP as well as to all the gems of wisdom of years of mothers' coffee groups. This new title clearly and compassionately explains the ups as well as the downs which are perfectly normal aspects of giving birth and mothering in today's society. This edition is in two volumes. The second volume ISBN is 9781459657557.
