I read a lot of great books in 2015. Here's a few that were especially interesting and you might wanna consider.
我在 2015 年讀了許多好書。這裡是幾本特別有趣且你可能會想考慮讀看看的書。
Thing Explainer by Randall Munroe. He explains things using only the thousand most common words in the English language.
Randall Munroe 的 《Thing Explainer(事情講解員)》。他只用英文中最常見的一千字就解釋了一切。
Sustainable Materials: With Both Eyes Open by Julian Allwood and Jonathan Cullen. Although it's not a mainstream book, you end up learning a lot, and it's really brilliant how they use diagrams, and explores how could we meet the challenge of climate change.
Julian Allwood 和 Jonathan Cullen 共著的《Sustainable Materials: With Both Eyes Open(關注材料的可持續利用)》。雖然這並非一本主流書籍，你最後卻會學到許多，而且他們利用圖表的方式真的很出色，此書也探討了我們能如何面對氣候變遷的挑戰。
The Road to Character by David Brooks raises the issue about whether we're developing people's characters today as well as we should.
David Brooks 的 《The Road to Character(品格之路)》 提出了關於我們現今是否有如應做的那般培養人類品格的議題。
Eradication by Nancy Leys Stepan gives you the history of all the different efforts to eradicate diseases.
Nancy Leys Stepan 所寫的《Eradication(根除)》 帶給你所有為消滅疾病所做的不同努力的歷史。
Being Nixon by Evan Thomas—I found really fascinating. Richard Nixon is mostly written about in terms of the mistakes he made. It's great to have a book that goes back and explains who he was and how he stood out.
Evan Thomas 的《Being Nixon(尼克森)》－－我發現這本書非常引人入勝。理察‧尼克森被寫的大多是他所犯下的過錯。能有一本回溯過去並解釋他是怎樣的人以及他如何出人頭地的書真的很不錯。
Mindset by Carol Dweck gets you thinking about the psychology of how you think about what your potential is.
Carol Dweck 的《Mindset(心態致勝)》 讓你去思考你怎樣看待自身潛能的心理。
I had a lot of fun reading these books, and I hope one or more catch your interest.
