Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Sir Ray Avery, with Cameron Bennett and Adrian Malloch, has produced a very special book - words of wisdom from great New Zealanders, packaged with stunning photographs and a beautiful, classic design. 'Nobody is as clever as all of us.' This is one of Sir Ray Avery's key philosophies - the importance of teamwork and harnessing the talents of a group. This book is a celebration of 50 New Zealanders who are extraordinary in their own fields, both locally and internationally. Drawn from all fields - science, business, writing, film, sport, art, technology - it includes both the very well-known -such as Sam Neill, Rhys Darby, Barbara Kendall, Neil Finn and Susan Devoy - and the lesser known but equally talented. Each person is a high achiever and a risk taker and Cameron Bennett's interviews with them are inspiring, surprising and delightful.The book captures them through truly amazing photographs taken by Adrian Malloch - these images show both their strengths and their weaknesses and speak volumes. With a foreword by Sir Ray Avery, this beautiful hardback is something to cherish and draw strength from.
