Buck Up: The Real Bloke's Guide to Getting Healthy and Living Longer

Author: Shelford, Buck and Schofield, Grant

All Black legend Buck Shelford was the epitome of brute strength, determination and athletic prowess. It was a shock to New Zealand sports fans, then, when he was diagnosed with lymphatic cancer in 2005, which he subsequently overcame with treatment. More recently, after a public battle with his weight, Buck successfully shed over 25 kilos.

Accessible and user-friendly, Buck Up draws on Buck's personal experience with health issues, but goes far beyond – along with highly regarded sports scientist Dr Grant Schofield, Buck offers a wide array of information and realistic tips to improve the quality of life for Kiwi males and their loved ones.

A book full of big ideas and practical advice, as well as a good dose of blokey humour, Buck Up promises to positively alter awareness of and approaches to men's health, for both everyday males and practitioners.

Launching 3 October and available through all good book stores

LIFE, HAPPINESS & CANCER: Survive with Action and Attitude!

Author: Phil Kerslake

"It is a profoundly honest and simple manual. It will help patients, their families, their workmates and their therapists." Associate Professor Dr Chris Atkinson MD, Chairman, Cancer Control Council of NZ & Medical Director of the Cancer Society of NZ.

I wrote Life, Happiness… & Cancer: survive with action and attitude! in 2005, after recovering from my lifetime 6th cancer battle. Released in New Zealand in early 2006, it is widely considered to be New Zealand's most popular cancer patient support book, with almost 13,000 copies purchased to December 2010.

My book is not a medical text nor is it an alternative to mainstream treatments or the support available from dedicated cancer support organisations. It is intended to complement these services, showing the reader how to use action and attitude to support their recoveries, illustrating:

  • How to cope much better with a cancer battle

  • What being 'a fighter' really means

  • What being an 'active patient' involves in practice

  • How to turn faith and hope into verbs and wishes into actions

  • How to run a life path audit that will feed your will to live

  • How to live in accordance with your own way of 'being, relating and creating' to support recovery prospects and to improve your quality of life

  • To create a life with more balance, meaning and fulfilment
