Australia HarperCollins 2009 0732298199 / 9780732298197 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
xiv + 194 indexed pages including bibliographical references. Adopting Jean-Paul Sartre's dictum, 'Hell is other people', Andrew Fuller, author of the highly successful Tricky Kids, takes us on a voyage through a rogues' gallery of weird, nasty and not-so-loveable types. These are people whom we may have the misfortune to meet at breakfast, at work, at a family reunion, or even (horrors!) in bed at night. Tricky People profiles the whole scary range of 'difficult' types: back-stabbers, white-anters, blamers, whingers, bullies, tyrants, controllers, charmers, know-it-alls, perfectionists, competitors and the seriously self-obsessed. It offers imaginative yet practical ways to deal with these dangerous and frustrating creatures and identify the slippery techniques they employ to get their way. Buried cleverly within all the humour is an in-depth look at how difficult people manage us for their own ends - and how to overturn that. It helps us understand relationship patterns, office politics, our own shortcomings in our dealings with others, and what a difficult person might be able to teach us. Andrew Fuller is a Clinical Psychologist and Family Therapist Fellow, Departments of Psychiatry and Learning and Educational Development University of Melbourne, Ambassador for Mind Matters Member, National Coalition Against Bullying and a principal consultant to the national drug prevention strategy REDI, the ABE on children's television shows. Andrew has recently been described as an "interesting mixture of Billy Connolly, Tim Winton and Frasier Crane" and as someone who "puts the heart back into psychology".

xxi + 220 indexed pages including bibliography. After thirty years of hard work by feminists all around the world, women now have a much better idea of what they want and how to get it. Men, on the other hand, don't know if they're Arthur or Martha. They have been told in no uncertain terms that the old ways of relating to the opposite sex are not on, but they haven't been involved in setting any new terms of engagement. For men, the rise of the women's movement has been marked by the ostracism of the macho man, the rise and fall of the SNAG, the emergence of the loveable and laughable dope. Sadly, it has also been accompanied by a dramatic rise in domestic violence, divorce, workaholism and suicide.Psychologist Toby Green has seen and treated increasing numbers of men in crisis. In "The Men's Room" she chronicles the mess men are in, and more importantly, offers a sensible solution to the crisis. Toby has written a prescription that men can follow which will take them into the next millennium as integrated individuals and fulland equal partners with women.Toby’s no-nonsense style works as well on paper as it does on the couch. This book is liberally sprinkled with anecdotes from Toby’s files, stories all men - and women - will identify with. Her candid observations and wise and witty advice makes "The Men's Room" the definitive guide for confused men at the end of the millennium.

Australia Hutchinson 1986 0091571413 / 9780091571412 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
87 pages including drawings. Too often, adolescence is a dirty word. It denotes a limbo that, once we have moved through, is never fully understood. This book attempts to provide adolescents with a means of self-knowledge, with some tools for the task of understanding themselves and their world. By looking at everyday experience, it seeks to encourage a loving, thoughtful appreciation of those ‘limbo’ years. It examines and reflects on some thoughts of adolescent life. Adolescence is not solely a time of transition. It is a state of being entire in itself. As such, it should be joyful and intelligible. If this book helps make it so, even in a small way, then it has been worth the writing. It looks at some of the issues that confront teenagers including privacy, and taking risks, alcohol, drugs, taboos and sexual identity.

Australia Finch Publishing 2010 1921462191 / 9781921462191 Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
166 pages. Andee Jones is an Australian psychologist who, at 50-something, launched herself into the world of online dating. This delightfully told true tale recounts four years of dating and relating ... and sheds a witty and amusing light on what we do on our search for love. Kissing Frogs brings a light touch to those hard and pressing questions about love such as: Why is it so hard to find...and even trickier to keep? How and why do we end up harming our relationships despite our best intentions? Is romantic love truly the 'impossible encounter'? The author also discovers how 'old gender politics' are being born again through the advent of new media technology. Kissing Frogs was originally self-published late 2009 but only made available via Readings. The author was interviewed by 'Life Matters' (ABC Radio National) in November 2009 -- and they want her back once this edition is available. There is current interest from the '7.30 Report' (for a special program on internet dating) and by 'Compass' (ABC TV). Kissing Frogs has been awarded a Highly Commended' in the 2007 Marian Eldridge Award and 'Commended', in the 2006-7 Bauhinia Literary Awards. It is currently being adapted as a stage play.
