The Godfather Notebook by Francis Ford Coppola Book Summary:

THE PUBLISHING SENSATION OF THE YEAR FOR EVERY FILM FAN The never-before-published edition of Francis Ford Coppola’s notes and annotations on The Godfather novel by Mario Puzo reveals the story behind one of the world’s most iconic films. The most important unpublished work on one of the greatest films of all time, The Godfather, written before filming, by the man who wrote and directed it—Francis Ford Coppola, then only thirty-two years old—reveals the intense creative process that went into making this seminal film. With his meticulous notes and impressions of Mario Puzo’s novel, the notebook was referred to by Coppola daily on set while he directed the movie. The Godfather Notebook pulls back the curtain on the legendary filmmaker and the film that launched his illustrious career. Complete with an introduction by Francis Ford Coppola and exclusive photographs from on and off the set, this is a unique, beautiful, and faithful reproduction of Coppola’s original notebook. This publication will change the way the world views the iconic film—and the process of filmmaking at large. A must-have book of the season. Nothing like it has ever been published before

Little Monsters by Kara Thomas Book Summary:

« À un moment donné, toutes les petites filles grandissent et s'abîment. » Kacey vient d'emménager à Broken Falls avec son père, et c'est une nouvelle vie qui commence pour elle. Tout le monde ici est si gentil. Elle a même été accueillie à bras ouverts par de nouvelles amies, Bailey et Jade. Raison pour laquelle cela lui paraît si bizarre quand ces dernières commencent à se montrer distantes. Et lorsqu'elle n'est pas invitée à la plus grosse soirée de l'année, elle n'a pas vraiment l'impression qu'il s'agit d'un accident. Mais Kacey ne pourra jamais en demander la raison, car après la fête Bailey disparaît. Soudain, Broken Falls ne semble plus si accueillant. Surtout quand tout le monde devient méfiant envers elle, la nouvelle. Kacey est sur le point d'apprendre deux choses très importantes : parfois, les apparences peuvent se révéler trompeuses. Et parfois, quand on est la nouvelle, il ne faut faire confiance à personne. « Un thriller psychologique intense qui vous donnera envie de laisser les lumières allumées entre le crépuscule et l'aube. » Publishers Weekly « Un thriller captivant et saisissant, que dévorera même le plus réticent des lecteurs. » School Library Journal

Godfather of Poker by Doyle Brunson Book Summary:

The story of Doyle Brunson, an American treasure and the greatest poker player of all time, is one for the ages. Its a story of guts and glory, of good luck and bad, of triumph and unspeakable tragedy, of courage and grace. He has survived whippings, gun fights, stabbings, mobsters (the real-life ones portrayed in the movie Casino), murderers, and a death sentence when, riddled with incurable cancer, he was given months to live by doctors who told him his hand was played out.A master of the bluff, his most outrageous bluff came after being pistol-whipped and told hes going to die with a gunman pointing a pistol at his forehead. Again, he lived. Brunson has seen it all: from the athletic dreams and a leg shattered by a freak injury which waylaid his path to the NBA (he was drafted by the Lakers), to the devastating death of his first-born daughter, to outrageous exploits like trying to discover Noah Ark and raise the Titanic. Doyles rollercoaster of a life defines the saying: Truth is stranger than fiction.Twice a winner of the prestigious World Series of Poker in Las Vegas, he's won millions and lost millions sometimes in seconds but decidedly more of the former than the latter. Brunson can still be found playing in the highest stakes poker games in the world, often with as much as one million dollars in front of him. To every one of the 250 million people worldwide who play poker each year, Doyle Brunson, is the legendary Babe Ruth of Poker the greatest gambler and poker player who has ever lived.

La guerre et la paix (Complete) by Lev Nikolayevich Tolstoy Book Summary:

En 1808, l'Empereur Alexandre se rendit à Erfurth pour avoir avec Napoléon une nouvelle entrevue, dont la pompe solennelle défraya longtemps les conversations des cercles aristocratiques de Pétersbourg. En 1809, l'alliance des «deux arbitres du monde», comme on appelait alors les deux souverains, était si intime, qu'au moment où Napoléon déclara la guerre à l'Autriche, l'Empereur Alexandre décida qu'un corps d'armée russe passerait la frontière pour soutenir Bonaparte, son ennemi d'autrefois, contre son ex-allié l'Empereur d'Autriche, et le bruit courut qu'il était question d'un mariage entre Napoléon et une soeur de l'empereur. En dehors des combinaisons et des éventualités de la politique extérieure, la société russe se préoccupait vivement à cette époque des réformes décrétées dans toutes les parties de l'administration. Cependant, malgré ces graves préoccupations, l'existence de tous les jours, la vraie existence individuelle, avec ses intérêts matériels de santé, de maladie, de travail, et de repos, ses aspirations intellectuelles vers les sciences, la poésie, la musique, ses passions, ses haines, ses amours, et ses amitiés, n'en suivait pas moins son cours habituel, sans s'inquiéter outre mesure du rapprochement ou de la rupture avec Napoléon, ni des grandes réformes entreprises. Tous les projets philanthropiques de Pierre, qui, par suite de son manque de persévérance, étaient jusqu'à présent restés sans résultat, avaient été mis à exécution par le prince André, qui n'avait pas quitté la campagne, et cela, sans qu'il en fît grand étalage ou y trouvât grande difficulté. Doué de ce qui manquait essentiellement à son ami, c'est-à-dire d'une ténacité pratique, il savait donner, sans secousse et sans effort, l'impulsion à l'ensemble d'une entreprise: les trois cents paysans d'une de ses terres furent inscrits comme agriculteurs libres (un des premiers faits de ce genre en Russie); sur ses autres terres, la corvée fut remplacée par la redevance; à Bogoutcharovo, il avait établi à ses frais une sage-femme, et le prêtre recevait un surplus d'émoluments, pour apprendre à lire aux enfants du village et de la domesticité.

Les secrets mayas by Clive Cussler Book Summary:

Lorsque le volcan Tacaná entre en éruption au Mexique, Sam et Remi Fargo – alors en vacances non loin de là – décident de venir en aide aux gens de la région. En chemin pour apporter un soutien médical aux habitants d’un village isolé, le couple d’aventuriers découvre un étrange bloc de pierre qui dissimule un sanctuaire, parfaitement conservé. Devant eux se tient le squelette d’un haut dignitaire maya et, posée à côté de lui, une jarre fermée par un couvercle qui attire leur attention. Quand ils réussissent enfin à l’ouvrir, Sam et Remi découvrent un livre, un gigantesque codex contenant de précieux secrets sur les Mayas, sur leurs villes, et sur les origines de l’humanité. Mais cette trouvaille majeure éveille des convoitises, notamment chez la collectionneuse britannique Sarah Allersby, riche héritière sans scrupule, qui engage une armée d’avocats pour récupérer l’ouvrage afin d’en percer les secrets. Débute alors une course-poursuite qui se transforme en chasse à l’homme du Mexique aux États-Unis, de l’Espagne au Guatemala. Tous les coups sont permis, les hommes de main de la riche britannique sont prêts à tuer pour récupérer le précieux codex. Beaucoup y laisseront leur vie car l’enjeu est de taille : préserver les secrets mayas et ceux de l’humanité toute entière...

The Godfather Doctrine by John C. Hulsman,A. Wess Mitchell Book Summary:

The Godfather Doctrine draws clear and essential lessons from perhaps the greatest Hollywood movie ever made to illustrate America's changing geopolitical place in the world and how our country can best meet the momentous strategic challenges it faces. In the movie The Godfather, Don Corleone, head of New York's most powerful organized-crime family, is shockingly gunned down in broad daylight, leaving his sons Sonny and Michael, along with his adopted son, consigliere Tom Hagen, to chart a new course for the family. In The Godfather Doctrine, John Hulsman and Wess Mitchell show how the aging and wounded don is emblematic of cold-war American power on the decline in a new world where our enemies play by unfamiliar rules, and how the don's heirs uncannily exemplify the three leading schools of American foreign policy today. Tom, the left-of-center liberal institutionalist, thinks the old rules still apply and that negotiation is the answer. Sonny is the Bush-era neocon who shoots first and asks questions later, proving an easy target for his enemies. Only Michael, the realist, has a sure feel for the changing scene, recognizing the need for flexible combinations of soft and hard power to keep the family strong and maintain its influence and security in a dangerous and rapidly changing world. Based on Hulsman and Mitchell's groundbreaking and widely debated article, "Pax Corleone," The Godfather Doctrine explains for everyone why Francis Ford Coppola's epic story about a Mafia dynasty holds key insights for ensuring America's survival in the twenty-first century.

The World for Sale by Javier Blas,Jack Farchy Book Summary:

Meet the traders who supply the world with oil, metal and food - no matter how corrupt, war-torn or famine-stricken the source. 'The definitive, eye-opening story of the most powerful and secretive traders in the world.' Bradley Hope, co-author of Billion Dollar Whale _____ The modern world is built on commodities - from the oil that fuels our cars to the metals that power our smartphones. We rarely stop to consider where they come from. But we should. In The World for Sale, two leading journalists lift the lid on one of the least scrutinised corners of the economy: the workings of the billionaire commodity traders who buy, hoard and sell the earth's resources. It is the story of how a handful of swashbuckling businessmen became indispensable cogs in global markets: enabling an enormous expansion in international trade, and connecting resource-rich countries - no matter how corrupt or war-torn - with the world's financial centres. And it is the story of how some traders acquired untold political power, right under the noses of Western regulators and politicians - helping Saddam Hussein to sell his oil, fuelling the Libyan rebel army during the Arab Spring, and funnelling cash to Vladimir Putin's Kremlin in spite of strict sanctions. The result is an eye-opening tour through the wildest frontiers of the global economy, as well as a revelatory guide to how capitalism really works. ____ A Financial Times Best Read of 2021. 'Blas and Farchy shine light on what's long been the financial markets' darkest corner - the crucial, yet underappreciated, role commodity traders play in global finance and geopolitics . . . The World For Sale is a fascinating, eye-opening read.'

Meet the traders who supply the world with oil, metal and food - no matter how corrupt, war-torn or famine-stricken the source. 'The definitive, eye-opening story of the most powerful and secretive traders in the world.' Bradley Hope, co-author of Billion Dollar Whale _____ The modern world is built on commodities - from the oil that fuels our cars to the metals that power our smartphones. We rarely stop to consider where they come from. But we should. In The World for Sale, two leading journalists lift the lid on one of the least scrutinised corners of the economy: the workings of the billionaire commodity traders who buy, hoard and sell the earth's resources. It is the story of how a handful of swashbuckling businessmen became indispensable cogs in global markets: enabling an enormous expansion in international trade, and connecting resource-rich countries - no matter how corrupt or war-torn - with the world's financial centres. And it is the story of how some traders acquired untold political power, right under the noses of Western regulators and politicians - helping Saddam Hussein to sell his oil, fuelling the Libyan rebel army during the Arab Spring, and funnelling cash to Vladimir Putin's Kremlin in spite of strict sanctions. The result is an eye-opening tour through the wildest frontiers of the global economy, as well as a revelatory guide to how capitalism really works. ____ A Financial Times Best Read of 2021. 'Blas and Farchy shine light on what's long been the financial markets' darkest corner - the crucial, yet underappreciated, role commodity traders play in global finance and geopolitics . . . The World For Sale is a fascinating, eye-opening read.'

The Economics of Violence by Gary M. Shiffman Book Summary:

How do we understand illicit violence? Can we prevent it? Building on behavioral science and economics, this book begins with the idea that humans are more predictable than we like to believe, and this ability to model human behavior applies equally well to leaders of violent and coercive organizations as it does to everyday people. Humans ultimately seek survival for themselves and their communities in a world of competition. While the dynamics of 'us vs. them' are divisive, they also help us to survive. Access to increasingly larger markets, facilitated through digital communications and social media, creates more transnational opportunities for deception, coercion, and violence. If the economist's perspective helps to explain violence, then it must also facilitate insights into promoting peace and security. If we can approach violence as behavioral scientists, then we can also better structure our institutions to create policies that make the world a more secure place, for us and for future generations.

Gangster by Lorenzo Carcaterra Book Summary:

Love. Violence. Destiny. These powerful themes ricochet through Lorenzo Carcaterra’s new novel like bullets from a machine gun. In Gangster, he surpasses even his bestselling Sleepers to create a brutal and brilliant American saga of murder, forgiveness, and redemption. Born in the midst of tragedy and violence and raised in the shadow of a shocking secret, young Angelo Vestieri chooses to flee both his past and his father to seek a second family—the criminals who preside over early 20th century New York. In his bloody rise from soldier to mob boss, he encounters ever more barbaric betrayals—in friendship, in his brutal business, in love—yet simultaneously comes to understand the meaning of loyalty, the virtue of relationships, and gains a perspective on the lonely, if powerful, life he has chosen. As the years pass, as enemies are made and defeated, as wars are fought and won, the old don meets an abandoned boy who needs a parent as much as protection. By taking Gabe under his wing and teaching him everything he knows, Angelo Vestieri will learn, in the winter of his life, which is greater: his love for the boy he cherishes, or his need to be a gangster and to live by the savage rules he helped create. A sweeping panoramic with riveting characters, a unique understanding of the underworld philosophy, and a relentless pace, Gangster travels through the time of godfathers and goodfellas to our own world of suburban Sopranos. But this is more than just an authentic chronicle of crime. Setting a new standard for this acclaimed author, Gangster is a compassionate portrait of one man's fight against his fate—and an unforgettable epic of a family, a city, a century.

King of the Godfathers: by Anthony M. DeStefano Book Summary:

The Last Of The Old-World Mob Bosses--And The Ultimate Betrayal For more than twenty years, Joseph "Big Joey" Massino ran what was called the largest criminal network in the U.S., employing over two hundred and fifty made men and untold numbers of associates. The Bonanno family was responsible for over thirty murders, even killing a dozen of its own members to enforce discipline and settle scores. He would be brought down by Salvatore "Good Looking Sal" Vitale, the underboss who was not only Massino's closest and most trusted friend, but also his brother-in-law. In the end, facing the death penalty and the prospect of leaving his family penniless, Massino started talking to the FBI--the first Mafia Godfather to break the sacred code of omerta, and the end of a centuries-old tradition. Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Anthony DeStefano, who interviewed Massino's family and friends as well as law enforcement officials and confidential sources, King of the Godfathers is the story of the brutal mob war that made Massino head of the Bonanno family and the most powerful gangster in America. "The best and last word on the subject." --Jerry Capeci, Gangland News.com and bestselling co-author of Murder Machine With 16 Pages of Revealing Photos! Anthony Destefano was part of the team of New York Newsday reporters who won the 1992 Pulitzer Prize for coverage of the August 1991 subway crash in Manhattan. He covers organized crime for Newsday and was the lead reporter on several major criminal trials, including that of subway gunman Bernhard Goetz. He lives in New Jersey.
