亚马逊推荐100本必读书

发布时间:2014-2-17

 

导读:在这个信息爆炸的时代,人们的阅读都已经习惯于碎片化。那么,深入阅读变得更加弥足珍贵!无论你是创业还是就业,当你面对一个行业,一个岗位,当你想把一件事做的更好的时候,你是不是更缺乏系统性的思考呢?沉下心来阅读,让自己暂时的避离碎片化信息的影响,发掘自己的系统性思考。必将能让自己从容应对!

 

亚马逊网近日发布了它的一生必读一百本书清单。所列书目从1813年的《傲慢与偏见》到1925年的《了不起的盖茨比》,到2013年的《生命不息》(Life after Life),跨越了两百年的文学时间。

 

网站编辑总监SaraNelson接受了不少采访,听下来,印象最深的是:这是一份手作的推荐清单,没有用到点击率分析等技术手段;希望选的书有代表,能引领读者通往更多的书。

 

而仔细读完这份清单会发现,它最大的亮点在可读性,比如里面会有《厨房机密》,会有《天生就会跑》,还有《饥饿游戏》《黄金罗盘》;比如毛姆选了《人性的枷锁》而不是《月亮和六便士》;比如没有莎士比亚但有大卫·伊格斯、安·帕切特、尤金尼德斯……它肯定不是一份西方正典清单,但它接近阅读本身,接近风土和人情,因此,这份清单恐怕比它涉及的书更值得一看。

 

2013年的数据似乎还没出来,但2012年,我国出版物的品种是41万种。——让我们带着这个背景看看亚马逊的一百种必读书都是什么吧:(书单中有中文版且认知度比较高的直接用了中文名,其他则直接采用英文书名和作者名以便检索。)
