Facebook 脸书CEO推荐书单

现在网上有各式各样的书单,有的来自名校,有的来自名人。今天我们来看看facebook的创始人马克·扎克伯格最喜欢的有哪些书。他山之石,可以攻玉,希望这些书也能够成为我们人生道路上的精神食粮。

"The Aeneid" by Virgil
《埃涅阿斯纪》维吉尔

Mark first read the Aeneid while he was studying Latin in high school, and he recounted the story of Aeneas's quest and his desire to build a city that, he said, quoting the text in English, "knows no boundaries in time and greatness." At one of the product meetings, Zuckerberg also quoted some lines from the Aeneid.----from interview to The New Yorker.
马克在高中学习拉丁语的时候第一次读了《埃涅阿斯纪》,他清楚地记得特洛伊勇士埃涅阿斯对于建立自己城市的欲望和追寻,甚至能背诵其中的一些句子:“时间无所边界,伟大没有尽头。”在一次会议上,扎克伯格还引用了其中的句子——引用自《纽约客》采访。

Most schoolchildren know the basics of the Trojan horse, but Virgil outlines all of the intriguing details of myth and legend. While Virgil is no longer around to rejoice at his work's placement on numerous book lists, this unfinished epic poem is still worth a read after nearly 2,000 years of translations.
上学的孩子都熟知特洛伊木马的故事,但是维吉尔对这个神话故事的复杂细节做了描述。虽然在众多书单的推荐中维吉尔的书已不再被常常提及,但是这部史诗巨作还是十分值得一读的。


"Ender's Game" by Orson Scott Card
《安德的游戏》奥森·斯科特·卡德 

Mark Zuckerberg listed this book as the only one on his Facebook profile.
这也是扎克伯格在他的脸书资料中列出的唯一一本书。

Sensitive parents may not find Card's work to be one of the best books (or most uplifting) for child reading, according to commonsensemedia.org. However, book recommendations from newspapers like The Guardian point out that Ender Wiggins' adventures while training at Battle School (to wipe out war-hungry aliens) include explorations into timeless virtues of courage in the face of peer exclusion. The book's prestigious accolades, such as the Hugo Award and the Nebula Award, may make parents think twice about reading the book for themselves - as well as to find out if the themes are damaging to children or not.
比较敏感的父母可能会觉得卡德的书对孩子来说并不是最好的或说最令人兴奋的选择。但是,《卫报》等报刊媒体在给出的推荐阅读书单中指出,安德·威金斯在战斗学校的经历包含了在遭受同学排挤时表现出的勇气。小说曾获雨果奖和星云奖,这样的名气让父母们自己在读这本书时都得考虑再三,给孩子看时也会考虑其主题是否适合。
