Tutto ebbe inizio con un cambiamento epocale: il trasloco di Brignano all'ultimo piano di un palazzo che ne conta più di venti. Da lì Enrico, scrutando l'infinito, si sentì invaso dal desiderio di conoscere. D'altro canto, solo poco prima ai li mortacci dei facchini rumeni, carichi di casse di libri, non aveva forse risposto: «Fatti non foste a viver come brutti ma per seguir virtute e canoscenza»? Ecco, quindi, che sbocciarono in lui mille domande. Da dove si origina il tutto? Ma è nato prima l'uovo o la gallina? Dio c'è e non si vede, o ce fa e non ci sente? Come siamo diventati sette miliardi e duecentonovantaquattro milioni di persone? E, soprattutto, dove stiamo andando? In Ci siamo evoluti bene Brignano si cimenta a rispondere alle grandi domande che l'uomo si pone dalla notte dei tempi, ripercorrendo la storia della nostra specie dalle pitture rupestri agli smartphone, dall'invenzione del fuoco allo sbarco sulla Luna, dal baratto di mammuth alla speculazione finanziaria. Ne nasce un flusso irresistibile di riflessioni esilaranti, e insieme un po' serie, su di noi e sul mondo che ci circonda. In un libro che fa molto ridere, ma anche pensare.

Before there was real estate tycoon cum President-Elect Donald J. Trump, there was Silvio Berlusconi, the billionaire media mogul turned prime minster who dominated Italian life for the past twenty years. In a candid, warts-and-all portrait of the leader who played hard in office and in private life. From the bunga-bunga parties to his most secret moments with world leaders, this biography is rich in anecdotes and revelations involving Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, George W. Bush, Vladimir Putin, Mikhail Gorbachev, Tony Blair, Nicolas Sarkozy, Angela Merkel , and many others. Berlusconi's incredible rise to power started from nothing. A self-created man, he was a cruise ship crooner as a young man, became a real estate tycoon in the '70s, started the first commercial television network in history, and turned AC Milan into a world-class soccer club. And that was all before he survived the squalid swampland of Italian politics to become prime minister who has not only served the longest in Italian history, but also has generated the most controversy of arguably any world leader today.

Chiara Petrillo was seated in a wheel chair looking lovingly toward Jesus in the tabernacle. Her husband, Enrico, found the courage to ask her a question that he had been holding back. Thinking of Jesus’s phrase, “my yoke is sweet and my burden is light,” he asked: “Is this yoke, this cross, really sweet, as Jesus said?” A smile came across Chiara’s face. She turned to her husband and said in a weak voice: “Yes, Enrico, it is very sweet.” At 28 years old, Chiara passed away, her body ravaged by cancer. The emotional, physical, and spiritual trials of this young Italian mother are not uncommon. It was her joyful and loving response to each that led one cardinal to call her “a saint for our times.” Chiara entrusted her first baby to the blessed Virgin, but felt as though this child was not hers to keep. Soon, it was revealed her daughter had life-threatening abnormalities. Despite universal pressure to abort, Chiara gave birth to a beautiful girl who died within the hour. A year later, the death of her second child came even more quickly. Yet God was preparing their hearts for more—more sorrow and more grace. While pregnant a third time, Chiara developed a malignant tumor. She refused to jeopardize the life of her unborn son by undergoing treatments during the pregnancy. Chiara waited until after Francesco was safely born, and then began the most intense treatments of radiation and chemotherapy, but it was soon clear that the cancer was terminal. Almost immediately after giving birth to Francesco, Chiara’s tumor became terminal and caused her to lose the use of her right eye. Her body was tested, and so was her soul as she suffered through terrible dark nights. She said “yes” to everything God sent her way, becoming a true child of God. And as her days on earth came to an end, Enrico looked down on his wife and said, “If she is going to be with Someone who loves her more than I, why should I be upset?” Each saint has a special charisma, a particular facet of God that is reflected through her. Chiara’s was to be a witness to joy in the face of great adversity, the kind which makes love overflow despite the sorrow from loss and death.
