A book I think is most useful.
The book I’m going to talk about is The Art of War written by a Chinese strategist named Sunwu. Its magic power has attracted many people due to its everlasting wisdom. Originally this book was mainly used to help commanders to win victories in wars. Now the strategies in the book have been applied in fields of business, politics, management, etc. I have learned a lot of useful experiences and strategies from it which have benefited me a lot. For example, I have learned how to cope with complex issues in interpersonal communication. Besides, this book also helps me know a lot about the society at that time and thus form a comprehensive view of Chinese history.
Which one do you prefer? Magazine, novel or poem?
Well, I prefer poem. A poem is usually quite short but it contains a lot of great things, such as the philosophical principles and the elegant style of expressions as well as the rich feelings. I find it is an enjoyment of beauty to read poems. I like both Chinese poems and English poems. In fact I can recite many classical Chinese poems and this benefits me a lot. These edifying poems have improved my mind and have made me understand many things such as how to raise my moral level and how to contribute to my country. Those principles and thoughts underlying the poems have been deeply rooted in my mind. Also, in many cases I can use a sentence of a poem to express my feelings and ideas.
