My Journey Through Mental Illness to Recovery: An Autoethnography: A Post-Modern Journey Moving from a Mental State of War-Induced Terror and Collapse into One of Acceptance and Recovery by Richard Peacocke (69-71)

Published by: LAP LAMBERT Academic Publishing (22 Aug. 2016)
IISBN-10: 3659927090
ISBN-13: 978-3659927096

"This is my autoethnographic account as I pursue a career as a Service User Representative with the Dorset Mental Health Forum over the years leading up to 2010 - a period of change in both the social care and health worlds. I try to explain what it is that ails me to paint a picture of a person who is in general "normal" but suffers from mental disorders while he plies his trade of representing other mental health service users. In this period are introduced Personal Budgets, and a three-year pilot scheme to look at the viability of Personal Health Budgets. Also, a change of government and a revision of the Mental Health Act 1983 bring a shake-up of services. We move from consideration of method, methodology, and ethics, to how that illness had been treated. I ensure emergent themes are based in a reality that can be accessed by the reader. This book offers a model of service user representation that maximises the effect on the system while minimising the effects on the mental troubles of the practitioners. I describe the development of a service user representative model that works well in Dorset, UK. I end this book by offering a model that service users may follow."

21st Century Seamanship by Michael 'Con' Lloyd (56-58)

Publisher: Witherby Seamanship International Ltd (15 Aug. 2015)
Paperback: 1300 pages
ISBN-10: 1856096327
ISBN-13: 978-1856096324

This book has taken ten years to prepare and, as a few have commented, it was probably in the planning long before then, whether I realised it or not.
A career at sea or in a marine-related business requires amassing a terrific volume of knowledge and the art and practice of seamanship is perhaps one of the most encyclopaedic job descriptions there is.
When I went to sea, almost 30 years ago, many would talk of days gone by when no self-respecting Chief Officer would be without his Seamanship Manual, and when I was about 12 or 13, I remember still the day my own father gave me his copy of 'The Boatswain's Manual'. In recent decades, shipping seems to have moved at a tremendous pace and it left me wondering whether it was possible to capture such a broad scope in a single publication that appeals to the forward thinking seafarer. This is exactly where this book positions itself - a manual for the modern day seafarer in the 21st Century.
