Have Not Charity is a fascinating and profound investigation into deep and important concepts which have become obscure in modern times: sin and virtue. Alexandr Korol examines what motivates people in their actions, how goals and behaviours align, and how these are all affected both for good and ill both by virtue and by sin. He seeks to show that many ‘good’ deeds are in fact motivated by sin.

This is a true modern work of ethics, in the classical sense, a guide for a better life. If you have ever hoped to gain a clearer and fuller understanding of how society and life work, this book will prove invaluable.

The writer, Alexandr Korol, was born in Saint Petersburg on the 12th of September 1990.

In 2006, Alexandr started to write his diary for the first time, where he noted his thoughts on traditional life questions: why children don’t listen to their parents? Why do people lie to each other? Why don’t people do what they like? As well as other thoughts about human relationships…

In 2008, Alexandr published his first book, named Answer, it was a compilation of author’s candid thoughts from the diary. Same year, the writer adopted his mother’s maiden name and since then he has written under “Alexandr Korol”. His book Answer attracted a lot of public attention. The project became a success; Alexandr created his first YouTube video where he shared his views about the world and society. The video brought even more public interest to the writer. Video was re-posted on social networks and received more than 1 million views.

By 2018, Alexandr finished more than 10 books with a collection of thoughts from a personal diary. All of the books were available for free download on his website. The same year, the book Corridor was published and became a bestseller. In this book, Alexandr proposes the concept of frequency in regards to social standing and psychological state of each person. Frequency is a combination of elements of everyday life that is used by every one of us: music, movies, clothes, people around us—all of it influences the person’s life. In Corridor, the author explains how to move from one frequency to another and which elements help or harm. In 2018, Alexandr decided to present the book to public during the event in the concert hall in Saint Petersburg, which was a wide success and attended by almost a thousand people.

Later in 2018, the second book, Paradox, was published. This book is a collection of separate non-fiction short stories about unexplainable events in the author’s life. This diary-like book most appeals to creative and free-spirited people who believe in wonders and live by feelings. Many readers called this book a “food for the soul”. The second part of this book, Paradox 2.0, was published in 2021. The book has the same structure and motivation to make a reader look at himself and everyday events from a different and unusual perspective.

Attention Control is a new book by the author that aims to help those who have trouble to concentrate and have problems steering their life in the right direction. The ability to control how to spend your attention is the essential part of a conscious human. This book is published in 2023.

The second book of 2023 is about women and men, friendship and friends, about relationships between parents and children and about what real love is. The author explains and gives examples of men and women’s behaviour in different social strata. This book will help a reader understand themselves and other people, and build harmonious relationships with friends and loved ones.

All above books can be downloaded from the author’s website:

In 2022, Alexandr finished his two-part book Have Not Charity. This book is an exploration of relatively obscure subjects, in modern times, as sins and virtues. In 2 parts of the book, the author attempts to explain what motivates people, how life goals and peoples behaviours are affected by sins or virtues. He shows that so many “good” deeds are in fact motivated by sins. This is a modern book of ethics; the guidance for a better life. This book is an attempt to explain how society and life work. The title of the book was taken from Bible 1 Corinthians, 13-2: “and though I have all faith so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.”

    The best book if you want to understand people and life. It’s a new way to look at yourself more in depth than ever before. Thanks to author for this book. This is a masterpiece!!!

  • Nikolaj

    Classic of our time, without a doubt

  • Ihor Minakov

    There is a lot of information about each person, about his qualities and actions. Reading the first volume, in a good sense of the word, I was horrified by how clearly I saw myself from the outside. In these books you can find many answers that a person is looking for for himself.

  • Oleg

    This is a new way of life, a new way of thinking. Book from a new era. If you want to know how to be a better person, this book is for you. A depth analysis of the sins and virtue with a contemporary point of view. The author, Aleksandr Korol is a young philosopher with a wisdom I never have seen. He can explain deep and complicated concepts with simple language, that could understand anybody. Author from the future indeed.

  • Irina Popova

    He is my favorite writer! The book is amazing, not a single philosopher and theologian of our time could write as deeply and intelligibly as this guy. However, not everyone has grown to such information in their life.
