The unique and inspiring story of a boy born with the odds against him and the family whose love and support helped him overcome incredible hardships. Robert Hoge was born with a giant tumour on his forehead, severely distorted facial features and legs that were twisted and useless. His mother refused to look at her son, let alone bring him home. But home he went, to a life that, against the odds, was filled with joy, optimism and boyhood naughtiness. Home for the Hoges was a bayside suburb of Brisbane. Robert's parents, Mary and Vince, knew that his life would be difficult, but they were determined to give him a typical Australian childhood. So along with the regular, gruelling and often dangerous operations that made medical history and gradually improved Robert's life, there were bad haircuts, visits to the local pool, school camps and dreams of summer sports. Ugly is Robert's account of that life, from the time of his birth to the arrival of his own daughter. It is a story of how the love and support of his family helped him to overcome incredible hardships. It is also the story of an extraordinary person living an ordinary life, which is perhaps his greatest achievement of all. 'There is much to be learned from this ugly man whose spirit is truly beautiful' - Saturday Age 'This is an incredible life story that will no doubt attract much publicity and discussion about beauty, ugliness and how we value ourselves' - Australian Bookseller + Publisher 'If Robert Hoge reckons he belongs to the Ugly Club, then "ugly" must mean humour and courage, love and decency' - William McInnes '[A] frank, wry and funny memoir...' - Sunday Age 'This fabulous easy-to-read tale is a treasure for anyone who has ever given their looks a second thought. Ugly offers a bracing perspective on life, love and the real definition of beauty. - Good Reading Author Biography Robert Hoge has worked as a journalist, a speechwriter, a science communicator for the CSIRO and a political advisor to the former Queensland Premier and Deputy Premier. He has had numerous short stories, articles, interviews and other works published in Australia and overseas. He also enjoys photography, and is interested in disability advocacy and social engagement. While he never went far with his professional lawn bowls career, Robert did carry the Olympic torch in 2000. He is married and lives in Brisbane. He has an eleven-year-old daughter who thinks his Olympic torch would make a really great cricket bat.

On the day she received what would be the second pink slip in her career, forty-something Donna Gillis found herself single, jobless, broke, and just about broken. Feeling as if her promising future had never arrived, Donna took a long look back at her life. As she tried to figure out how her dream slipped by, while everything else went wrong, she realized that her face-her very flawed face-had become her life. In a society that is consumed with appearance, Donna's face has been through a lot. With refreshing honesty and wit, Donna chronicles how, for decades, she struggled to live and love with her appearance. Her journey to the truth leads her from the day she first wanted to disappear in seventh grade to entering a makeover contest on the television show Live! with Regis & Kathie Lee-which, much to her surprise, she wins. As she stands behind the curtains of the set, Donna wonders if opening them could be the biggest mistake of her life. "The Pretty Ugly Truth about My Face" is a tart, moving, and eye-opening story that casts a powerful light on what a woman might do to look and feel better. A memoir about vanity, relationships, self-acceptance, cosmetic surgery...and acne, it is also a story about the need for love, and finding the most unexpected one in the end.

Social scientists have long known that political beliefs bias the way they think about, understand, and interpret the world around them. In this volume, scholars from social psychology and related fields explore the ways in which social scientists themselves have allowed their own political biases to influence their research. These biases may influence the development of research hypotheses, the design of studies and methods and materials chosen to test hypotheses, decisions to publish or not publish results based on their consistency with one’s prior political beliefs, and how results are described and dissemination to the popular press. The fact that these processes occur within academic disciplines, such as social psychology, that strongly skew to the political left compounds the problem. Contributors to this volume not only identify and document the ways that social psychologists’ political beliefs can and have influenced research, but also offer solutions towards a more depoliticized social psychology that can become a model for discourse across the social sciences.

Frieda Annette Brown grew up in the inner city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She and her five brothers were the illegitimate offspring of Hetty Anna Brown, a wayward and promiscuous soul with a lustful, reckless spirit and a heartless neglect for the welfare of her children. Hetty's willful abandonment left her six children susceptible to the harsh and unforgiving elements and predators of their urban streets. Frieda was seven when her nightmares began. Forced to bear the burdens of numerous aggressors, the child would endure a lonely battle to overcome child abuse, of which most occurred within the families. The climb to overcome the trials and tribulations that plagued her life was unimaginable, as Frieda struggled to maintain belief that a better life was possible, if she could first break free from this dysfunctional environment. Climbing the Broken Stairs, is an inspiring true-life journey of determination, and an inspiring and personal testament to the mercy, power, and glory of God.

Island Shelter recounts the childhood, young adulthood and current life experiences of Karen Kiaer, a woman who overcame great odds to recover from the disease of alcoholism. Daughter, wife, mother, and now grandmother, every woman who struggles with addiction and who self medicates yet continues to pretend everything is under control will learn the valuable insights that helped transform Karens attitudes through painful personal traumas, and out the other end of a very long journey the journey of alcohol recovery. After losing her husband to cancer, Karen finds herself alone with three young boys to raise, no job, no money, multiple lawsuits, fears of the mob seeking retribution against her husband for non payment of loans, an out of touch, insensitive mother, and a notice that her beautiful island home has been placed on the public auction block. The nurturing tenderness and intimacy of a nine year relationship with another woman may have helped her back to psychic wholeness, but in the end, for addicts, if the relationship is not meant to be forever, the sexual behavior simply becomes another addiction, another way to fill up the hole of separation and emptiness. All of these things Karen does to escape, avoid, and numb out the stash of fears and pain that has been embedded deep in her cells for decades, like chiggers that fester and brood until someone finally puts a match to them. Her journey shows us how, when faced with adversity and uncertainty, the battle between the higher self and the destructive self is fierce. What helps get her through the cravings and temptations is her love of gardening which quickly becomes a physical and meditative outlet. An art major in college, she had always found joy in the creative process, so painting and pottery become new ways for expressing her creativity in moments without pain. The good news of all of this is that while we addicts may still have a lot of work to do, we are nowhere where we used to be. This generations cycle of abuse and addiction has been broken. Theres no need to numb out anymore youve learned how to love yourself, all of you, including the bad. And with that love comes peace.
