NEW: SocietY, Psychology, Education

WE COULD ALL DO WITH A CUPPA AND A GLIMPSE OF UTOPIA RIGHT NOW

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- 'Business as usual' is no longer cutting it in the face of momentous social and technological change - this is the premise of this book from Jess Scully, who in her daily disguise is the Deputy Lord Mayor of Sydney.

Our outdated social infrastructure around workplace laws, taxation, banking, and media are lagging the changes that technology and globalisation have brought about. So what can we do? Where will change come from?

Well, Jess has been talking with some remarkable individuals who are breaking, bending and skirting around the system. Re-envisioning. Mapping slums? Radical banking? It's exciting stuff and a clarion call that the status quo need not be taken as 'carved in stone'. Craig Kirchner

BODY COUNT: HOW CLIMATE CHANGE IS KILLING US

Paddy Manning paints us the big picture around major climate change events, interviewing scientists to explore the link to climate change and asks how - indeed, whether - we can better prepare ourselves in the future.

WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH...

Anni Finsterer has forged a career as an actor across theatre, tv and cinema, most recently appearing in Australian movies 'The True History of the Ned Kelly Gang' and 'Sweet Country'. Radical Rock and Roll Resilience is her book for those who desperately need self-help but want to keep it undercover; who might have the fuel to kickstart their life but have no idea how to build the rocket. In a style that's all beer no froth, we learn of the author's own desperate need for resilience when she charted the rugged road of her own recovery, leaping considerable hurdles in a life marked by tragedy and hilarity in equal measure.

FROM BOYS TO MEN

Maggie Dent is one of Australia's favourite experts on parenting and resilience education. Here she offers parents and guardians a compassionate and practical guidebook, packed with advice and ground-breaking techniques, offering hope for a future of adventure, stability, engagement and connection for boys and teens as they progress through adolescence.
