The Best Australian Yarns is a substantial and definitive work collected from memory, mates, word of mouth and decades of researching popular Aussie culture and history. Including oft-told legendary yarns, reminiscences from the shearing shed, tall stories from the bush, sporting yarns, railway yarns, stories from the world of show business, digger yarns from both world wars, convict and bushranger yarns and anecdotes from the colonial days, yarns from shanties and gold rushes, ghost stories, bunyips and yowies, hauntings, and weird happenings. Jim Haynes and many of the best yarn spinners in Australia are close mates and happy to share their material. Many yarns came Jim´s way while collecting stories for his previous books on Aussie railways, trucking stories, drinking stories and working in broadcasting on small radio stations in the bush and for the ABC radio program ´Australia All Over´. While the stories range from poignant to hilarious many simply describe unusual coincidences and strange occurrences with a refreshing understatement that vividly evokes a vanishing Australia where looking for a good laugh was a key component of a cheekier national character. 1.

Written by a highly respected fitness journalist, Mindful Running offers an engaging and highly practical guide to how mindfulness can both optimise sporting performance and improve general health. The benefits of mindfulness for general well-being have been discussed extensively, but little has been written about how mindfulness can be applied to running. In this book, leading health and fitness journalist Mackenzie L. Havey explores how combining mindfulness with running can not only improve sporting performance but can also enhance overall health. Through easy-to-understand explanations, Mindful Running reveals how runners can benefit from meditative practices and positive thinking and how the rhythmic breathing, physical effort and focus on training can aid mindfulness. This in turn can help prevent injuries, enhance personal bests and improve the runner´s psychological strength and life balance. Havey´s grounded approach to the subject takes the user through a series of straightforward but effective exercises designed to increase self-awareness, develop concentration and improve endurance. With clear explanations of the physiological and psychological processes, supported by anecdotes and expert contributions from athletes, coaches and sport scientists, this book is an inspiring and invaluable guide for runners of all levels. 1.
