Die oorlewingstog van 'n dapper vrou.
“ ŉ Kale vlakte waar my regterbors eens was. Ek maak my oë toe en laat my brein toe om te proe aan hierdie monumentale ding. Kanker schmanker, besluit ek. Ek is nog net soveel vrou soos voor die operasie. My vroulikheid het toe al die tyd nie in my bors gesit nie. Dit sit in my kop, in my hart, in daardie onmeetbare, onaantasbare iets wat die gees genoem word.”

Dit is ŉ boek van hoop en triomf wat die leser hardop laat huil en laat lag. Dis 'n verhaal vir elkeen van ons wat ŉ stryd van enige aard stry.

Across the world, 2 billion people experience menstruation, yet menstruation is seen as a mark of shame. We are told not to discuss it in public, that tampons and sanitary pads should be hidden away, the blood rendered invisible. In many parts of the world, poverty, culture and religion collide causing the taboo around menstruation to have grave consequences. Younger people who menstruate are deterred from going to school, adults from work, infections are left untreated. The shame is universal and the silence a global rule. In It's Only Blood Anna Dahlqvist tells the shocking but always moving stories of why and how people from Sweden to Bangladesh, from the United States to Uganda, are fighting back against the shame.

A fascinating read.' - Martha Kearney, BBC Radio 4 What happens to our brain at night? Are we really fully asleep and if so how is it that some individuals end up doing what they do? Or can it be the case that perhaps the brain never fully goes to sleep and that in some individuals there is a disconnect between the sleeping part of their brain and the active part of their brain so that the two become confused? Does this happen to all of us in varying degrees and can the reverse be the case too - so that some individuals are actually asleep during the day while appearing to be awake?! In this ground-breaking book, Dr Guy Leschziner takes us on a fascinating journey through the nocturnal brain to illustrate the neuroscience behind nightmares, night terrors and sleep walking.

'I didn't have a burning desire to make a product for mums. I didn't have a burning desire to make a product at all. My moti-vation was to be the master of my own destiny, to work for my-self rather than 'the man.' If someone told me before I started my business that my cofounder would bail, that I'd be on the brink of bankruptcy and that I'd get into a jumbled mess with my investors-all while raising four daughters-would I still have done it? Hell yeah. But that's because I'm a loud and feisty Aussie chick. If you're reading this, you probably have some guts too. Believe me, I was never supposed to be an entrepreneur. I was just another thirty-something full-time corporate cog, wife and mother who didn't know a damn thing about business. But I knew in my bones that aden + anais, a boutique swaddle company my friend and I thought up on the floor of my baby's nursery, would be successful. And, would you look at that, I was right. I'm here to tell you, that you do have what it takes to start a business, change careers, be successful-and maybe even tell your micromanaging boss to go shove it. I succeeded, despite all the odds and curveballs thrown my way, and you can too. You don't need an MBA, you just need an idea you believe in, the ability to work your arse off and a desire to learn more. So get ready to check your doubts at the door and jump in.
