    One of art's purest challenges is to translate a human being into words. The New Yorker magazine has met this challenge more often and more successfully than any other modern American journal. Starting with its light fantastic evocations of the glamorous and the idiosyncratic in the '20s and continuing to the present, with complex pictures of such contemporaries as Marlon Brando and Richard Pryor, The New Yorker's Profiles have presented readers with a vast and brilliant portrait gallery.

    The focus of What Would Machiavelli Do? is on what works and how to get it done. Machiavellians may not get to heaven, but on earth they have a significant edge over the competition. The goal is to learn how to approach problems in a manner that is at once creative, geared toward achieving financial success, and refreshingly amoral.

    The countdown to midnight begins on a winter dawn. In Maryland, welder Jack Hummel is abducted from his suburban home and whisked to the South Mountain MX missile site: a top-secret nuclear complex now taken over by paramilitary terrorists. Their mission: to unleash 35 megatons of nuclear doom in a devastatingly brilliant plot that threatens global disaster. All that stands between the Uzi-armed commandos and the launch button is a half-ton titanium block. They want Jack Hummel to cut through it.

    Long before September 11, 2001, Steven Simon and Daniel Benjamin warned publicly of a massive terrorist strike against America. They were not voices from the fringe; they had been the directors of the White House's counterterrorism program. Their warnings were ignored. Now they have written the definitive work on radical Islam's war against America, from its deep origins to our long struggle ahead.

    It is spring 1916, and a stalemate on Europe's western front has descended into horror. France and Great Britain are on one side of the barbed wire, a fierce German army is on the other. Jeff Shaara opens a window onto the otherworldly tableau of trench warfare, as seen through the eyes of a typical British soldier who experiences the bizarre and the horrible - a "Tommy" whose innocent youth is cast into the hell of a terrifying war.

    Paradise is Larry McMurtry's most original and personal work to date. From the harsh violent landscape of west Texas to the lush sensuality and easy living of Tahiti, McMurtry answers some of the questions of what paradise is, whether it exists, and how different it is from life in his hometown.
