NEW: Biography - Australian

EMOTIONAL FEMALE

Yumiko Kadota was every Asian parent's dream- model student, top of her class in medical school and on track to becoming a surgeon. A self-confessed workaholic, she regularly put 'knife before life', knowing it was all going to be worth it because it would lead to her longed-for career...

But if the punishing hours in surgery weren't hard enough, she also faced challenges as a young female surgeon navigating a male-dominated specialty.

Yumiko Kadota is a voice for her generation when it comes to burnout and finding the resilience to rebuild after suffering a physical, emotional and existential breakdown. This is a brave, honest and unflinching work from a major new talent.

FINDING YOUR INNER HERO

Uplifting! How do we find courage when climate change overwhelms us emotionally? Well, you read this! In this magical, often funny and deeply moving personal story, award-winning science reporter Jonica Newby explores how to navigate the emotional turmoil of climate change.

Featuring illuminating conversations with singer-songwriter Missy Higgins, comedians Charlie Pickering and Craig Reucassel and business leader Mike Cannon-Brookes, practical advice from psychological and scientific experts, incredible accounts from everyday heroes, plus inspiring stories from the climate strike kids, Beyond Climate Grief provides guidance and emotional sustenance to help shore up courage for the uncertainties ahead.

A VISION FOR AUSTRALIA'S HEALTH

Barry Leithhead looks at the whole body of work that Dr Cecil Evelyn Aufrere Cook undertook in tropical medicine and public health while working for the Commonwealth and State governments for almost forty years. Cook is most widely known as the Chief Protector of Aborigines in the Northern Territory (1929-37) and therefore the policies that resulted in the heartbreak of the Stolen Generations. Here, Leithhead considers his professional life in its entirety.
