Hierdie boek kon seker nie op 'n beter tyd verskyn het nie, want die vuur op plase wil maar nie gaan lÍ nie. Dit terwyl die ekonomie insink en diť in hoŽ posisies skynbaar rustig op die soustrein kuier.
Die boek handel dan juis oor die gebeure van 'n anderste tyd – oor mense se ervarings tydens fase 5 tot 2 van die inperking. Elke leser sal hom- of haarself waarskynlik in een of meer van die karakters herken.
Pandemie-paniek kan jou lagspiere prikkel, maar die grendeltyd kan ook pyn, trauma, vereensaming, onsekerheid en intense verlies meebring. Ongelukkig sien gewetenlose gierigaards toe 'n geleentheid om hulleself te verryk ten koste van armes en siekes, terwyl ander besig is om sinlose “gesondheidsregulasies” uit te vaardig.
Daar was diť wat kanse vat en ander wat elke jota en tittel van (soms) absurde wette gehoorsaam. Amusante gedrag, pynlike situasies en onbeholpe wetstoepassing is boeiende leesstof in 'n tyd waarin almal sukkel om sin te maak uit dit wat was en wat is en wat kom.

The setting is exotic but it is also precarious. When the author is subjected to a brutal attack by three men, it threatens to destroy her and her family: post-traumatic stress turns a good mother into a woman who is fragmented and out of control.

Under the CamelthornTree addresses head-on the many issues surrounding motherhood, education, independence, and the natural world; and highlights the long-lasting effect of gender violence on secondary victims. Above all, it is an inspiring account of family love, and a powerful beacon of hope for life after trauma.

The president of Independent Power Systems International, John Perkins manages large-scale projects aimed at conserving energy and improving the environment. The Stress-Free Habit is the result of his twenty years of experience as a management consultant to governmental organizations and businesses in countries as diverse as Ecuador, Indonesia, Egypt, Mexico, Iran, and Saudi Arabia. The author points out that stress is all around us and, while it is often useful and even essential, it can also be extremely harmful. While other cultures incorporate very specific methods of stress management as part of their daily routines, such methods are noticeably absent from the fabric of modern Western culture.Perkins emphasizes that we can--and should--seek out these techniques wherever they are to be found and put them into practice in our own lives. Throughout his travels and contacts with a variety of native cultures, the author has observed and integrated traditional practices that have enabled him and his co-workers to manage stress effectively and achieve high levels of success. The Stress-Free Habit consolidates this practical wisdom in a simple easy-to-follow eight-step program. Those who practice it experience physical and psychological benefits, including elimination of alcohol and drug abuse, insomnia, headache, diarrhea, and nervous disorders, as well as a lower probability of heart attack. The principles of The Stress-Free Habit come to life in tales of remarkable encounters with individuals who have mastered the art of creative living. Their stories are a testament to techniques of stress management that can help you live a longer, more relaxed, and more productive life.
