Summary

Part memoir and part social criticism, The Glass Closet addresses the issue of homophobia that still pervades corporations around the world and underscores the immense challenges faced by LGBT employees. 
In The Glass Closet, Lord John Browne, former CEO of BP, seeks to unsettle business leaders by exposing the culture of homophobia that remains rampant in corporations around the world, and which prevents employees from showing their authentic selves. 
Drawing on his own experiences, and those of prominent members of the LGBT community around the world, as well as insights from well-known business leaders and celebrities, Lord Browne illustrates why, despite the risks involved, self-disclosure is best for employees—and for the businesses that support them. Above all, The Glass Closet offers inspiration and support for those who too often worry that coming out will hinder their chances of professional success.

    The noose tightens around Mafia don Stefano Marino’s neck. While Silvio Spadaro goes on the offensive and attacks the Russian mobsters who threaten Stefano’s power, mutiny is brewing in Stefano’s crime family. His underboss, Augusto Viero, challenges his leadership. Soon it becomes clear that nobody – except maybe Silvio – can be trusted. 
    But Silvio’s very presence may destroy everything Stefano holds dear – his standing in the Mafia, the respect of his men, and, last but not least, his marriage. When Silvio’s brother Franco returns from the French Foreign legion, a skilled sniper is certainly welcome in the middle of all-out gang war, but two Spadaros might be a lot more than Stefano can handle.
