The Power Of Us Rockets Into NZ Best Seller List

Rocketing into the bestseller list in its first week is The Power of Us. The book is the brainchild of Sir Ray Avery and celebrates New Zealand’s spirit through the voices of 54 inspirational New Zealanders,

While inspiring the country it is also supporting a good cause with all profits from the sale of the book going to Sir Ray Avery’s Charity Medicine Mondiale.

“The Power of Us makes a brilliant personal or corporate gift at Christmas or anytime and a chance for all of us to recognise our gutsy little country, its people and what we are capable of creating,” said Sir Ray Avery.

Each person highlighted in the book is a high achiever and a risk taker and a fiercely proud New Zealander.

It includes men and women from all walks of life - science, business, literature, film, entertainment, sport and technology – with candid, surprising and uplifting interviews by journalist and broadcaster Cameron Bennett, on their lives and philosophy.

Each interview is accompanied by strong and insightful photographs by Adrian Malloch, revealing the strength and humanity of the subjects.

And Sir Ray has the final word: “I am so proud I ended up in this extraordinary country I now call home and I want everyone else to feel the same and understand what we have and are accomplishing.”

Available throughout New Zealand for $49.99.
