«Un giorno del 1999, in un improvviso istante di presenza, mi sono accorto che dietro di me restava ben poco di ciò che credevo di essere stato fino ad allora. Ho quindi iniziato a cercare, a osservare, a studiare, a pormi domande. È stato in quell'istante che il mio cuore si è aperto a un'emozione nuova... Sono queste microscopiche pillole di consapevolezza che vorrei ora condividere con te.» Esperto di marketing, comunicazione e innovazione, ma anche marito innamorato e padre felice di cinque figli, Oscar di Montigny affida a queste pagine una serie di riflessioni maturate in anni di esperienze sia personali sia professionali, di incontri significativi con personalità fra le quali Tara Gandhi, il Dalai Lama, Lech Wałesa, Gorbacˇëv, Patch Adams, fino ad arrivare a fissare i principi di quella che è stata da lui definita "Economia 0.0": fare del bene e farlo bene, fare della propria vita un dono e fare di questo dono qualcosa di significativo per l'insieme. Un'economia sostenibile che esprima la capacità di esistere insieme, nella relazione col tutto e non soltanto come parte a sé stante. Un'economia basata sul capitale creativo culturale, fondata su trasparenza, gratitudine e responsabilità. E soprattutto sull'Amore, che lui ha definito «l'atto economico per eccellenza». Ma chi sono i Nuovi Eroi di cui ci parla di Montigny? In cosa consiste il loro Viaggio e qual è il loro Tempo? Tutti noi possiamo diventare Nuovi Eroi. Noi – che stiamo vivendo un vero e proprio cambiamento di era – quando ci lasciamo abitare da dei valori e guidare da degli ideali universali, quando accettiamo di intraprendere un percorso educativo interiore che ci porti a comprendere che gli altri siamo noi e a cercare di rendere questo mondo un posto migliore per tutti. Perché così facendo non solo avremo contribuito al bene dell'insieme di cui facciamo parte, ma anche vivremo in eterno in quella parte di noi che avremo donato agli altri.

A number-one New York Times bestseller when it was originally published, THE SILMARILLION is the core of J.R.R. Tolkien's imaginative writing, a work whose origins stretch back to a time long before THE HOBBIT. Tolkien considered THE SILMARILLION his most important work, and, though it was published last and posthumously, this great collection of tales and legends clearly sets the stage for all his other writing. The story of the creation of the world and of the the First Age, this is the ancient drama to which the characters in THE LORD OF THE RINGS look back and in whose events some of them, such as Elrond and Galadriel, took part. The three Silmarils were jewels created by Feanor, most gifted of the Elves. Within them was imprisoned the Light of the Two Trees of Valinor before the Trees themselves were destroyed by Morgoth, the first Dark Lord. Thereafter, the unsullied Light of Valinor lived on only in the Silmarils, but they were seized by Morgoth and set in his crown, which was guarded in the impenetrable fortress of Angband in the north of Middle-earth. THE SILMARILLION is the history of the rebellion of Feanor and his kindred against the gods, their exile from Valinor and return to Middle-earth, and their war, hopeless despite all their heroism, against the great Enemy. This second edition features a letter written by J.R.R. Tolkien describing his intentions for the book, which serves as a brilliant exposition of his conception of the earlier Ages of Middle-earth.

Look out for Carlo Rovelli's next book, Reality Is Not What It Seems. Instant New York Times Bestseller “One of the year’s most entrancing books about science.”—The Wall Street Journal “Clear, elegant...a whirlwind tour of some of the biggest ideas in physics.”—The New York Times Book Review This playful, entertaining, and mind-bending introduction to modern physics briskly explains Einstein's general relativity, quantum mechanics, elementary particles, gravity, black holes, the complex architecture of the universe, and the role humans play in this weird and wonderful world. Carlo Rovelli, a renowned theoretical physicist, is a delightfully poetic and philosophical scientific guide. He takes us to the frontiers of our knowledge: to the most minute reaches of the fabric of space, back to the origins of the cosmos, and into the workings of our minds. The book celebrates the joy of discovery. “Here, on the edge of what we know, in contact with the ocean of the unknown, shines the mystery and the beauty of the world,” Rovelli writes. “And it’s breathtaking.”

Italo Calvino was only twenty-three when he first published this bold and imaginative novel. It tells the story of Pin, a cobbler's apprentice in a town on the Ligurian coast during World War II. He lives with his sister, a prostitute, and spends as much time as he can at a seedy bar where he amuses the adult patrons. After a mishap with a Nazi soldier, Pin becomes involved with a band of partisans. Calvino's portrayal of these characters, seen through the eyes of a child, is not only a revealing commentary on the Italian resistance but an insightful coming-of-age story. Updated to include changes from Calvino's definitive Italian edition, previously censored passages, and his newly translated, unabridged preface--in which Calvino brilliantly critiques and places into historical context his own youthful work--The Path to the Spiders' Nests is animated by the formidable imagination that has made Italo Calvino one of the most respected writers of our time.

Drug lord Miguel Angel Barrera is head of the Mexican drug federación, responsible for millions of dollars worth of cocaine traffic into the US and the torture of those who stand in its way. His nephew, Adan Barrera, is his worthy successor. Art Keller is a US government operative, so determined to obtain revenge for a murdered colleague that his pursuit of the cartel veers dangerously towards an obsession outside the law. This is a world characterised by its brutality, yet all Winslow's incredibly varied cast - including a high class prostitute, an Irish hitman and a charismatic Catholic priest - are all in their own ways searching for salvation. Don Winslow's masterpiece is not only a page-turning thriller but also a rich and compelling novel in the league of an Ellroy or Delillo.
