Since their first publication in 1821, de Maistre's dark writings have fascinated and appalled critics, with their relentless hatred of the Enlightenment and view of humans as murderous beasts who can only be controlled by the threat of overwhelming punishment. Terrifying and bizarre, The Executioner is a meditation on human evil like no other. Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves - and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives - and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are.

In 2011, Steven Di Carlo, unknowingly living his ninth existence as an executioner, was about to be awakened to his purpose on earth by remembering his many past lives. Along with his prophets Michael and Samuel, they would continue their enormous task of protecting the Book of Wisdom known as the KHoKeM, the very science of an everlasting life. Rumors of its existence had some referring to the KHoKeM as the Holy Grail while others searched in vain for the ever-elusive fountain of youth. December 12, 2012, feared as the day of the apocalypse, was in fact the date targeted for the retrieval of the KHoKeM. September 9, 2019, would be the day its secrets are to be revealed to the human race. Will the people of earth be ready for this knowledge? Will the prophets and the executioner decide that humanity is still too barbaric and choose to leave the science hidden for another thousand years, or will the path and all its wisdom forever be destroyed by the evil inside us all? The journey begins with book 1 of this new trilogy by Frank Franco.

It is a must-read for any CEO.” —Nancy Gaudet, owner and CEO of Gaudet Solutions “A very powerful self-help book that outlines exactly how to become successful at your own dreams.” —Chuck Royston, mission evaluation room engineer, NASA “This is a fascinating and extremely valuable trip inside the mind—and the success-building habits—of one of America’s most successful entrepreneurs. . . . Like a positive mental attitude coupled with a creative plan, Artie’s book will change lives.” —Bill Moore, partner, Enoch Kever Law Firm; former general counsel, TXU Energy “In his earthy and understandable style built from his own learning and experience, Artie has captured in The Executioner a great roadmap for being successful in business whether it is as the CEO of a start-up company, or as the leader of an established operation looking to grow and improve.” —Dennis J. Seith, CEO INEOS Olefins and Polymers USA The Executioner is a comprehensive modernized update of the 1937 success classic, Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill with the more effective nonconventional thinking, execution, and business practices since developed. Hill was unsurpassed in getting right the improved thinking, goals, and action needed for obtaining excellence. However, these near -invisible intangible success principles have remained very elusive to implement. The best business practices in most of the best books available today are also very elusive for most to implement well but for a different reason. These great practices identified don’t work until you develop your thinking, habits, and ability to execute them like Hill promoted. The Executioner is a guide to excellence in developing your thinking, goals, positive mental attitude, courage, will-power, people, business, and mastery, and over-coming self-doubt.

This is a very strange story. A Chinese executioner in the middle ages--or at least at some far distant time unspecified--is banned because it is discovered that he murders just before he executes! Good book about a Kafka-like society where you may kill but you may not murder. The motive of the executioner in doing what he does is not explained.

Los Zetas represent a new generation of ruthless, sadistic pragmatists in Mexico and Central America who are impelling a tectonic shift among drug trafficking organizations in the Americas. Mexico's marines have taken down the cartel's top leaders; nevertheless, these capos and their desperados have forever altered how criminal business is conducted in the Western Hemisphere. This narrative brings an unprecedented level of detail in describing how Los Zetas became Mexico's most diabolical criminal organization before suffering severe losses. In their heyday, Los Zetas controlled networks of American police, politicians, judges, and businessmen. The Mexican government is losing its "war on drugs," despite the military, technical, and intelligence resources provided by its northern neighbor. Subcontracted street gangs operate in hundreds of US cities, purchasing weapons, delivering product, executing targeted foes, and bribing the US Border Patrol. Despite crippling losses Los Zetas still dominate Nuevo Laredo, the major portal for legal and illegal bilateral commerce. They also work hand-in-glove with the underworld in Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras, as well as with gangs like the Maras Salvatruchas.
