    CA$14.95
    "There is one thing that we all must do. If we do everything else but that one thing, we will be lost. And if we do nothing else but that one thing, we will have a glorious life." Rumi (Persian poet and philosopher, 1207-1273)

  • It Takes 2 to Tango, Maybe...

    CA$14.95
    This book speaks to the power of commitment and availability as a treatment tool to effect the most change. In traditional therapy the therapist sits on one side of the process and the client sits on the other. In Dr. Manswell's approach, the therapist, while still respecting the boundaries of therapist and client, becomes part of the solution. Trust, availability, respect, commitment and patience shared equally amongst these three key players makes the difference. Gambling addiction is such a puzzle to those not afflicted with this disability. Dr. Manswell and his clients help us gain insight into the thinking process and emotions that are at war within the gambler as they struggle to overcome the devastating hold gambling has over their lives. It is a story of pain, but more importantly it is a story of hope and of perseverance — and, finally, of success.

    CA$14.95

  • Bold Experiment: A...

    CA$14.95
    Your Nickel's Worth Publishing is pleased to present Bold Experiment, an autobiography written by Matthew S. Anderson (1882 - 1974) - a man recognized by Tommy Douglas as 'a pioneer of social medicine'.

    The 80-page book, including photographs, documents and memorabilia, uncovers the little-known history behind an important piece of our Canadian culture, heritage and identity: the story behind how Medicare first came to Saskatchewan.

    Since its inception as a province, Saskatchewan has been home to grassroots idealism, to people willing to work hard to make a difference and to those willing to persevere despite the odds. Matthew Anderson believed strongly that Canadians should have protection against the cost of illness. After almost 20 years of dedication and determination to transform the idea into reality, this man, a plain 'dirt farmer' from Bulyea, Saskatchewan, forged and made work North America's first comprehensive, prepaid medical care plan.

    Given the interest in the Tommy Douglas story and the history of Medicare, this book provides a timely perspective from one of the early pioneers of health care in North America.
