We don’t expect everybody to devote their life to understanding the global political arena inside, and out. Still, a firm grasp of the world’s top leadership should definitely be a core part of any man’s mental arsenal. Power: Portraits of World Leaders ($24) helps put faces to the names of 150 current international leaders. Every shot was taken by New Yorker staffer and World Press Photo award-winner Platon, over a 12 month period at the United Nations. Combined, these portraits represent a one-of-a-kind look at the individuals shaping things as we know it, for better or worse. Note: Donald Trump doesn’t have a page. Berlusconi still snuck in, even though he was forced to leave Ruby out of the shot.
