En estas páginas el lector encontrará personajes siniestros —matones ceñudos que atemorizaban a sus vecinos en el siglo XIX— y otros aún más siniestros —sí, hay muchos políticos Este recorrido desde Sicilia a Little Italy, con muchas idas y venidas, permitirá al lector conocer a héroes anónimos y la dramática manera en que la Mafia se entrecruza y se enreda, una y otra vez, en la historia italiana, a la manera de un hilo negro. Por otro lado, el libro contiene una filmografía, con más de 250 películas comentadas, que trata de explicar cómo ha evolucionado la figura del gánster y del mafioso en el cine. Es decir, que trata de hacernos entender por qué profesamos una perversa fascinación cada vez que aparece en pantalla un tipo con borsalino y ametralladora, o ante un persona que recita de memoria un pasaje de El Padrino. LO QUE DICE LA CRÍTICA Lo más bestia que he leído sobre Berlusconi y la mafia lo ha escrito el gran Íñigo Domínguez en este libro" - Irene Hernández Velasco, El Mundo Imagine que tiene entre manos una novela, una gran novela del siglo XX que se derrama sobre el XXI. Muchísimas cosas, desde aspectos cruciales de la Segunda Guerra Mundial hasta ciertas políticas avanzadas, pasando por la estructura del Estado italiano o los meandros de la vida neoyorquina, carecen de explicación sin la Mafia siciliana. - Enric González SOBRE EL AUTOR Íñigo Domínguez es corresponsal en Roma de El Correo desde 2001 y sigue admirado la actualidad italiana. Ha trabajado en Venezuela, Grecia y Balcanes. Entre sus logros, haberse hecho el Transiberiano con la excusa de unos reportajes o algo tan inverosímil como ser enviado especial en Seychelles. Pese a la presión social de la última década, nunca se compró un piso. Por ser refractario a Twitter no tiene la más mínima repercusión en el mundo global.

A New York Times–bestselling author’s revealing, “important” biography of the longtime FBI director (The Philadelphia Inquirer). No one exemplified paranoia and secrecy at the heart of American power better than J. Edgar Hoover, the original director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. For this consummate biography, renowned investigative journalist Anthony Summers interviewed more than eight hundred witnesses and pored through thousands of documents to get at the truth about the man who headed the FBI for fifty years, persecuted political enemies, blackmailed politicians, and lived his own surprising secret life. Ultimately, Summers paints a portrait of a fatally flawed individual who should never have held such power, and for so long.

Con crónicas de Daniel Alarcón, Jorge Volpi, Santiago Roncagliolo, Ilán Stavans, Edmundo Paz Soldán, Claudia Piñeiro, Jon Lee Anderson, Joaquín Botero, João Paolo Cuenca, André de Leones, Aileen El-Kadi, Gabriela Esquivada, Diego Fonseca, Eduardo Halfon, Yuri Herrera, Hernán Iglesias Illa, Andrea Jeftanovic, Camilo Jiménez, Juan Pablo Meneses, Diego Enrique Osorno, Guillermo Osorno, Carola Saavedra, Wilbert Torre y Eloy Urroz. Veinticuatro cronistas participan en Sam no es mi tío, escritores, periodistas, y académicos latinoamericanos que se propusieron narrar América, las Américas. Para ellos la realidad está compuesta por millones de historias como las suyas que conforman nuestras sociedades. Estas crónicas son los relatos de la microhistoria americana contemporánea. Donde las eternas migraciones, la violencia, las partidas y los regresos, el éxito y la derrota, los cruces lingüísticos y culturales, el racismo y la xenofobia cohabitan dentro de un relato que permanecerá siempre incompleto. El lector de estas crónicas va a acompañar trayectos tan fascinantes como familiares. Se acercará a mundos bajos de los que ya escuchó hablar alguna vez. Reirá y sufrirá con los protagonistas de historias reales, tan reales como las de aquel amigo, aquella prima, aquel padre que se fue al Norte, pero nunca contó qué pasó por allá. O la de una mujer y su amante que ven por la tele la caída de las Torres Gemelas mientras especulan si su esposo murió en el ataque; o un norteamericano que se dedica a defender latinos pobres que más tarde lo van a traicionar.

Secrets of the Millionaire Mind reveals the missing link between wanting success and achieving it! Have you ever wondered why some people seem to get rich easily, while others are destined for a life of financial struggle? Is the difference found in their education, intelligence, skills, timing, work habits, contacts, luck, or their choice of jobs, businesses, or investments? The shocking answer is: None of the above! In his groundbreaking Secrets of the Millionaire Mind, T. Harv Eker states: "Give me five minutes, and I can predict your financial future for the rest of your life!" Eker does this by identifying your "money and success blueprint." We all have a personal money blueprint ingrained in our subconscious minds, and it is this blueprint, more than anything, that will determine our financial lives. You can know everything about marketing, sales, negotiations, stocks, real estate, and the world of finance, but if your money blueprint is not set for a high level of success, you will never have a lot of money—and if somehow you do, you will most likely lose it! The good news is that now you can actually reset your money blueprint to create natural and automatic success. Secrets of the Millionaire Mind is two books in one. Part I explains how your money blueprint works. Through Eker's rare combination of street smarts, humor, and heart, you will learn how your childhood influences have shaped your financial destiny. You will also learn how to identify your own money blueprint and "revise" it to not only create success but, more important, to keep and continually grow it. In Part II you will be introduced to seventeen "Wealth Files," which describe exactly how rich people think and act differently than most poor and middle-class people. Each Wealth File includes action steps for you to practice in the real world in order to dramatically increase your income and accumulate wealth. If you are not doing as well financially as you would like, you will have to change your money blueprint. Unfortunately your current money blueprint will tend to stay with you for the rest of your life, unless you identify and revise it, and that's exactly what you will do with the help of this extraordinary book. According to T. Harv Eker, it's simple. If you think like rich people think and do what rich people do, chances are you'll get rich too!
