Kiwiana Uniquely New Zealand is an essential guide for both New Zealanders and overseas visitors, identifying and celebrating some of the more colourful and durable aspects of this country’s popular culture.
Mauri Ora links whakatauki to key personal virtues idealised across cultures and generations. Meaning, the virtues, wisdom, courage, compassion, integrity, self-mastery and belief, all stem from the science of positive psychology; the study of how to live a better life.
Illustrated throughout with wonderful photographs from an old world, this book draws on traditional wisdom to provide a recipe for personal effectiveness and leadership, and a rewarding connection of Māori knowledge to contemporary thinking about personal happiness and fulfilment.
