本書特色

  特色一:六大主題豐富多元,職場運用無往不利

  你知道講電話時不能說「I am...」而要說「This is...」嗎?生病要向公司請假時,英文又要怎麼說呢?本書囊括上班族每天在工作上碰到的大大小小狀況,像是做簡報、接電話及洽談合約等等,讓你熟悉處理事務的用語,開口說英文不再是難事!

  例:
  (第一章 工作環境:1-5 請假要注意)
  Tony: Hi, Brenda. This is Tony.
  Brenda: Hi, Tony. You don’t sound so good.
  Tony: Yeah. I feel terrible.
  Brenda: Oh, no. I’m sorry to hear that.
  Tony: Thanks. I think I’ve come down with the flu.
  Brenda: Do you need to take some time off?
  Tony: Yeah. I don’t think I can make it to work today.
  Brenda: OK. That’s fine. I hope you feel better soon.
  湯尼:嗨,布蘭達。我是湯尼。
  布蘭達:嗨,湯尼。你聽起來不太好。
  湯尼:是啊,我覺得很不舒服。
  布蘭達:喔,不會吧。很遺憾聽到這個壞消息。
  湯尼:謝了。我想我得了流行性感冒。
  布蘭達:你需要休息幾天嗎?
  湯尼:是啊。我想我今天沒辦法去上班了。
  布蘭達:好的。沒關係。希望你早日康復。

  特色二:108組對話寫實呈現,道地用法一手掌握

  本書所列出的情境對話,都是上班族日常工作實際會遇到的場景,從面試到請同事幫忙,從讚美、道歉到催進度,教你聽懂又能說,學會怎麼在這些場合表達更得體、互動更自然流暢!

  例:
  (第三章 分工協調:3-3 我該怎麼做?)
  Connor: I’m sorry to bother you, Wendy. Can you help me with these files?
  Wendy: I can help you later, but I have to deal with these inventory records first.
  Connor: No rush. I took over some of Maggie’s projects while she’s on maternity leave.
  Wendy: I thought she wasn’t due until the end of the month.
  康納:抱歉打擾你,溫蒂。妳可以幫我處理這些檔案嗎?
  溫蒂:我等一下可以幫你,但是我必須先處理這些庫存紀錄。
  康納:不急。瑪姬請產假,我接手了她部份的案子。
  溫蒂:我以為她的預產期是這個月底。

  特色三:重點句型靈活運用,替代說法不怕詞窮!

  每個情境對話中都有一句職場好用句,讓你不管是開會或是接待客戶都能言之有物。用法解析針對句型、片語、應用場合詳加說明,再加上六句實用的替代句,全書756句好用句隨你運用,讓你的英文表達更豐富!平時閱讀培養實力,緊急時刻隨手翻開,快速找到臨時需要的那句話,立刻派上用場!

  例:
  (第五章 會議簡報:5-6 會議重點別漏掉)
  好用句:
  Now, it’s time to summarize...(現在該來總結一下……)

  詳細解析:
  會議進行至尾聲時,通常會需要總結過程中所討論的事項,這時就可以說It’s time to summarize...來統整會議內容。summarize的名詞是summary「總結,摘要」,常見相關用法有in summary「總而言之」,也可代換為in conclusion或to sum up。

  替代說法:
  1. To sum up, let me repeat the main points.
  總而言之,讓我重複幾個重點。
  2. In conclusion, I think prospects for the coming year are excellent.
  總而言之,我認為接下來一年的前景相當看好。
  3. Let’s briefly go over what we covered at this meeting.
  讓我們簡單地回顧一下本次會議的內容。
  4. In summary, we need to focus our resources on solving these problems.
  總而言之,我們必須集中資源來解決這些問題。
  5. Before we end the meeting, let me sum up the main points.
  會議結束之前,讓我總結一下幾個重點。
  6. Before we wrap up, let’s go over the main points one more time.
  結束之前,讓我們再回顧一下幾個重點。

  特色四:延伸詞彙+商務小知識,職場英文學習更全面

  你知道CEO是公司中的什麼職務嗎?常用到的「迴紋針」英文又要怎麼說呢?各章的Biz補給站中,除了有圖解介紹辦公室內常見的物品,還有延伸補充條列企業部門、職位名稱等的英文,以及各種寄件方式、專有名詞縮寫等商業常識,讓你在職場上更得心應手。

  例:
  (第一章 工作環境:Biz補給站)
  辦公室文具用品
  1. 原子筆 ball-point pen
  2. 簽字筆 marker
  3. 剪刀 scissors
  4. 膠水 glue
  5. 膠帶 tape
  6. 迴紋針 paper clip
  7. 釘書機 stapler
李嘉誠、大前研一、賈伯斯、杜書伍、林書豪、蔡依林、周星馳、九把刀……,這些都是我們耳熟能詳的名人,然而,他們並非一路平步青雲,你是否會好奇,在生命低潮時,他們如何為自己打氣加油,以致登上今日的高峰?

本書透過一則則故事,揭開他們在面臨抉擇的當下,因為堅持什麼樣的信念,於是開啟了人生不同風景:

.知識改變命運。香港首富李嘉誠是一個知識主義者,到今日,他仍自學不輟,回家必做的兩件功課是,看電視學英文、睡前閱讀,因為他深信,知識的創造與應用,是企業成敗的關鍵;而這六個字,也是他人生歷程的真實寫照。

.當你在1樓時,就要能夠想40樓的人在想什麼。杜書伍初入社會時只是一名工程師,在工作磨練中,學會站在老闆的角度想事情,慢慢累積做事的格局,堅持企業策略必須下長棋,最終帶領聯強國際登上通路業的霸主。

.成功,就是輸掉一切都無所謂。謝家華在事業草創時期,三年中兩度瀕臨破產,但他認為,當一個人能失去所有東西卻仍不受影響時,就成功了。最後在一片「不可能」的聲浪中,他打造出讓亞馬遜也佩服的全球最大網路鞋店Zappos。

.說出來會被嘲笑的夢想,才有實踐的價值。九把刀自許要打敗金庸,成為華人小說第一寫手,在書賣得最爛的時候,也從沒懷疑過自己。如今,他已證明了自己的價值,30歲就出版39本書,也是超商書架上陳列最多作品的作家。

.你必須讓自己得到130分,才能讓別人扣分!從小好勝的蔡依林,因為不想被殘酷而現實的演藝圈打敗,她用過人的毅力證明自己的能耐,成功由偶像歌手轉型,如今成為華語歌壇的小天后。

書中的每句話,都是各界成功人士總結數十年的人生智慧,歸納、粹煉而成,也是其信念與行事的準則。

你也可以透過他們的故事,了解其背後的經驗與心法,並找到自己受用一生的一句話。

你知道嗎? 有很多字看起來好像都一樣,其實意思跟用法「差」很大!   

little vs. small 『小的』很不同,你分的清楚嗎?

desk vs. table 『桌子』怎麼分,你用對了嗎?

advise vs. suggest 如何給『建議』,你講的正確嗎?

cold/cool/chilly 『冷』的程度有不同,你會形容嗎?

hurt/injure/wound 『傷』的不一樣,你搞懂了嗎?

 

       

英語學這麼久,卻老是用錯單字!

許多台灣讀者學英語最大部分的時間都是花在「背單字」,從小到大每次一翻開課本就是先從生字下手,課本中總是密密麻麻擠滿了生字的解釋,但是大部分單字背了不常用到又會很快忘光光,而且,最重要的是語言的用法需要符合使用的情境及目的,很多單字在不同的使用情境下有不同的解釋,如果只單純地以字面上的解釋去記憶,就可能會鬧出大烏龍,變成雞同鴨講,如果能從使用情境及目的中去記憶,則更能讓讀者輕鬆的記憶,並且清楚瞭解最正確的用法。

 

四大學習特色,一次搞懂易混淆字的用法攻略!

       ◆ 情境用法 比較分析

  ◆ 表達差異 圖解說明

  ◆ 正確用法 例句說明

  ◆ 延伸學習 加強印象

New York Times Bestseller

A Summer Reading Pick for President Barack Obama, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg

From a renowned historian comes a groundbreaking narrative of humanity’s creation and evolution—a #1 international bestseller—that explores the ways in which biology and history have defined us and enhanced our understanding of what it means to be “human.”

One hundred thousand years ago, at least six different species of humans inhabited Earth. Yet today there is only one—homo sapiens. What happened to the others? And what may happen to us?

Most books about the history of humanity pursue either a historical or a biological approach, but Dr. Yuval Noah Harari breaks the mold with this highly original book that begins about 70,000 years ago with the appearance of modern cognition. From examining the role evolving humans have played in the global ecosystem to charting the rise of empires, Sapiens integrates history and science to reconsider accepted narratives, connect past developments with contemporary concerns, and examine specific events within the context of larger ideas.

Dr. Harari also compels us to look ahead, because over the last few decades humans have begun to bend laws of natural selection that have governed life for the past four billion years. We are acquiring the ability to design not only the world around us, but also ourselves. Where is this leading us, and what do we want to become?

Featuring 27 photographs, 6 maps, and 25 illustrations/diagrams, this provocative and insightful work is sure to spark debate and is essential reading for aficionados of Jared Diamond, James Gleick, Matt Ridley, Robert Wright, and Sharon Moalem.

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER, NAMED BY THE TIMES AS ONE OF "6 BOOKS TO HELP UNDERSTAND TRUMP'S WIN" AND SOON TO BE A MAJOR-MOTION PICTURE DIRECTED BY RON HOWARD

"You will not read a more important book about America this year."—The Economist

"A riveting book."—The Wall Street Journal

"Essential reading."—David Brooks, New York Times

Hillbilly Elegy is a passionate and personal analysis of a culture in crisis—that of white working-class Americans. The disintegration of this group, a process that has been slowly occurring now for more than forty years, has been reported with growing frequency and alarm, but has never before been written about as searingly from the inside. J. D. Vance tells the true story of what a social, regional, and class decline feels like when you were born with it hung around your neck.

The Vance family story begins hopefully in postwar America. J. D.’s grandparents were “dirt poor and in love,” and moved north from Kentucky’s Appalachia region to Ohio in the hopes of escaping the dreadful poverty around them. They raised a middle-class family, and eventually one of their grandchildren would graduate from Yale Law School, a conventional marker of success in achieving generational upward mobility. But as the family saga of Hillbilly Elegy plays out, we learn that J.D.'s grandparents, aunt, uncle, sister, and, most of all, his mother struggled profoundly with the demands of their new middle-class life, never fully escaping the legacy of abuse, alcoholism, poverty, and trauma so characteristic of their part of America. With piercing honesty, Vance shows how he himself still carries around the demons of his chaotic family history.

A deeply moving memoir, with its share of humor and vividly colorful figures, Hillbilly Elegy is the story of how upward mobility really feels. And it is an urgent and troubling meditation on the loss of the American dream for a large segment of this country.

"Disturbing and riveting...It will sear your soul." —Dave Eggers, New York Times Book Review

SHELF AWARENESS'S BEST BOOK OF 2017

Named a best book of the year by Wall Street Journal, The Boston Globe, San Francisco Chronicle, GQ, Time, Newsday, Entertainment Weekly, Time Magazine, NPR's Maureen Corrigan, NPR's "On Point," Vogue, Smithsonian, Cosmopolitan, Seattle Times, Bloomberg, Lit Hub's "Ultimate Best Books," Library Journal, Paste, Kirkus, Slate.com and Book Browse

From New Yorker staff writer David Grann, #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Lost City of Z, a twisting, haunting true-life murder mystery about one of the most monstrous crimes in American history
       
In the 1920s, the richest people per capita in the world were members of the Osage Indian nation in Oklahoma. After oil was discovered beneath their land, they rode in chauffeured automobiles, built mansions, and sent their children to study in Europe.
      Then, one by one, the Osage began to be killed off. The family of an Osage woman, Mollie Burkhart, became a prime target. Her relatives were shot and poisoned. And it was just the beginning, as more and more members of the tribe began to die under mysterious circumstances.
      In this last remnant of the Wild West—where oilmen like J. P. Getty made their fortunes and where desperadoes like Al Spencer, the “Phantom Terror,” roamed—many of those who dared to investigate the killings were themselves murdered. As the death toll climbed to more than twenty-four, the FBI took up the case. It was one of the organization’s first major homicide investigations and the bureau badly bungled the case. In desperation, the young director, J. Edgar Hoover, turned to a former Texas Ranger named Tom White to unravel the mystery. White put together an undercover team, including one of the only American Indian agents in the bureau. The agents infiltrated the region, struggling to adopt the latest techniques of detection.  Together with the Osage they began to expose one of the most chilling conspiracies in American history. 
      In Killers of the Flower Moon, David Grann revisits a shocking series of crimes in which dozens of people were murdered in cold blood. Based on years of research and startling new evidence, the book is a masterpiece of narrative nonfiction, as each step in the investigation reveals a series of sinister secrets and reversals. But more than that, it is a searing indictment of the callousness and prejudice toward American Indians that allowed the murderers to operate with impunity for so long. Killers of the Flower Moon is utterly compelling, but also emotionally devastating.
A New York Times Bestseller and an Economist Best Book of 2015

"The most important book on decision making since Daniel Kahneman's Thinking, Fast and Slow."
—Jason Zweig, The Wall Street Journal
 
Everyone would benefit from seeing further into the future, whether buying stocks, crafting policy, launching a new product, or simply planning the week’s meals. Unfortunately, people tend to be terrible forecasters. As Wharton professor Philip Tetlock showed in a landmark 2005 study, even experts’ predictions are only slightly better than chance. However, an important and underreported conclusion of that study was that some experts do have real foresight, and Tetlock has spent the past decade trying to figure out why. What makes some people so good? And can this talent be taught?
 
In Superforecasting, Tetlock and coauthor Dan Gardner offer a masterwork on prediction, drawing on decades of research and the results of a massive, government-funded forecasting tournament. The Good Judgment Project involves tens of thousands of ordinary people—including a Brooklyn filmmaker, a retired pipe installer, and a former ballroom dancer—who set out to forecast global events. Some of the volunteers have turned out to be astonishingly good. They’ve beaten other benchmarks, competitors, and prediction markets. They’ve even beaten the collective judgment of intelligence analysts with access to classified information. They are "superforecasters."
 
In this groundbreaking and accessible book, Tetlock and Gardner show us how we can learn from this elite group. Weaving together stories of forecasting successes (the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound) and failures (the Bay of Pigs) and interviews with a range of high-level decision makers, from David Petraeus to Robert Rubin, they show that good forecasting doesn’t require powerful computers or arcane methods. It involves gathering evidence from a variety of sources, thinking probabilistically, working in teams, keeping score, and being willing to admit error and change course.

Superforecasting offers the first demonstrably effective way to improve our ability to predict the future—whether in business, finance, politics, international affairs, or daily life—and is destined to become a modern classic.
