感想/評介

對我影響最深的中文書:施耐庵《水滸傳》
原因:《水滸傳》乃中國著名的章回小說,可說是現代武俠小說的前身,對中國現代文學的影響深遠。大學時期因閱讀此書而愛上歷史、權術及武俠小說,如:《三國演義》、《孫子兵法》、《書劍恩仇錄》等,對當代人物、生活、文化及政治有細膩的描繪,不單講述謀略應用,同時強調義氣的社會價值觀,對培養年輕人處世之道有正面作用,最重要是對建築物的精緻描述,引發讀者對研究不同時期建築的興趣,而每個角色背後的故事,更能啟發讀者對事物入微的觀察力。

對我影響最深的英文書:The One Minute Manager, by Kenneth Blanchard, Spencer Johnson
原因:This is a short yet very popular and widely translated book that can help one to get hold of basic but useful skills in management quickly as told through a young man's search for the ideal management and leadership skills. The key to the protagonist's success lies in the mastery of three secrets, i.e. the “one minute goals”, the “one minute praising” and the “one minute reprimand”. I have been influenced by this book to become an effective and efficient manager in a very short time. Furthermore, when I applied the management skills it advocated, I found them most helpful in my work.
