Charles Brandt - The Irishman
Italiano | 2019 | 468 pages | ISBN: 8893251345 | EPUB | 1 MB

Narrazione di grande potenza, The Irishman è un viaggio monumentale attraverso i corridoi nascosti del crimine organizzato, le sue dinamiche interne, le rivalità e le connessioni con le alte sfere della politica: un grande classico della letteratura americana sulla mafia. La scomparsa di Jimmy Hoffa, leggendario leader sindacale, definito «l'uomo più potente degli Stati Uniti dopo il presidente» dal suo oppositore Robert Kennedy, è uno dei più grandi misteri della storia americana e ha ossessionato l'opinione pubblica del paese per decenni. Arrivato talmente in alto da intrattenere rapporti con la mafia e con le più importanti cariche dello Stato, Hoffa era un personaggio scomodo a molti uomini, politici e criminali. Fu visto l'ultima volta il 30 luglio 1975 e il suo corpo non fu mai ritrovato..

Simone Moro - I sogni non sono in discesa
Italiano | 2019 | 450 pages | ISBN: 8817141143 | EPUB | 36 MB

La vita di Simone Moro è un potentissimo sogno verticale. È una vertigine scatenata da una passione assoluta, divorante. Quella passione che è la forza propulsiva indispensabile per realizzare grandi imprese, per andare oltre. Dopo diversi libri dedicati a singoli momenti ed esperienze - dalla tragedia dell'Annapurna alla storica conquista del Nanga Parbat in inverno, alle attività con l'elicottero -, Simone Moro, avendo appena superato il crinale dei 50 anni, sente ora l'esigenza di ripercorrere il proprio cammino di alpinista per coglierne l'evoluzione e soprattutto il senso profondo. In questo libro importante sceglie quindi una serie di imprese emblematiche che non ha mai raccontato e le utilizza per seguire il filo della sua biografia e capire i passaggi da un periodo all'altro, le difficoltà e le reazioni a esse, la graduale crescita della consapevolezza..
