《最后期限》征求书评

gigix 2003-01-10 04:17:29
好久没来软工版看望老朋友,心下愧疚,先放三百分,聊表心意。

小弟翻译的《最后期限》出版了,向各位大虾征求书评文章。如有精彩之作,小弟另有重谢。

从来都是小弟拿着一把剃刀评别人的书,今天也该被人品头论足了。

我看了前10章,非常不错。

不过我一向认为,好书是用来收藏的。所以总是先看电子版,觉得好的,就去买纸质的。

等以后把书全看完了,偶来写一篇书评。

另外《Patton》的结尾的旁白也很精彩,也给大家附上——

For over a thousand years, Roman conquerors returning from the wars enjoyed the honor of a triumph, a tumultuous parade. In the procession came trumpeters and musicians and strange animals from the conquered territories, together with carts laden with treasure and captured armaments. The conqueror rode in a triumphal chariot, the dazed prisoners walking in chains before him. Sometimes his children, robed in white, stood with him in the chariot or rode the trace horses. A slave stood behind the conqueror holding a golden crown and whispering in his ear a warning that all glory is fleeting.



是的——All glory is fleeting.

现在再次播送广告:

世上不会有永开不败的花朵,情人节的鲜花终究还会烂掉。
听听白发老头的热情传道没啥坏处,上帝造我们时也有最后期限。

呵呵,是的,kary(BCBuider回复) 说的没错!《最后期限》绝对是部好书。

我乱评的时候也专拣了些书中我认为有毛病的地方说说,不过书写得确实精彩!gigix翻译得也好!象处理人员冲突的提法完全正确而有实用价值,当然不必每个公司都聘用太多牛皮匠或故事大王哇,培养每个员工成为能说会道的催化剂角色就行了,尤其是项目经理本身就要朱容基总理似的有演讲和鼓动的才能。另外书中关于度量的问题写得真好,我们有时也该象贝琳达一样自责,太缺乏“考古”方面的东西了,有时做了很多项目,程序员自己也说不清自己到底一个星期写的代码能有多少行或多少功能点,经理和主管也拿不准团队的生产能力,大家都冒蒙着干。

大家有空都看看吧,新浪上有连载前10章,呵呵,不过没图。

另外,《最后期限》里几次提到过的电影《Patton》绝对也是好电影,也是可以鼓舞士气的一面镜子,影片里Patton出战前都要先照照镜子,喊一声“我一定要成功!”也强烈推荐大家看过书后,再看一遍,我觉得那开头时Patton的演讲就特别精彩。

可在下面听听它的演讲:

可在下面找到演讲全稿和背景:

呵呵,干脆附上演讲给大家欣赏一下吧——

Now I want you to remember that no bastard ever won a war by dying for his country.
You won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country. Men, all this
stuff you've heard about America not wanting to fight, wanting to stay out of the
war, is a lot of horse dung. Americans traditionally love to fight. ALL REAL Americans,
love the sting of battle. When you were kids, you all admired the champion marble
shooter, the fastest runner, the big league ball players, the toughest boxers . . .
Americans love a winner and will not tolerate a loser. Americans play to win all the
time. I wouldn't give a hoot in Hell for a man who lost and laughed. That's why Americans
have never lost and will never lose a war. Because the very thought of losing is hateful
to Americans.

Now, an army is a team. It lives, eats, sleeps, fights as a team. This individuality
stuff is a bunch of crap. The bilious bastards who wrote that stuff about individuality
for the Saturday Evening Post, don't know anything more about real battle than they do
about fornicating.

Now we have the finest food and equipment, the best spirit, and the best men in the world.
You know . . . My God, I actually pity those poor bastards we're going up against. My God,
I do. We're not just going to shoot the bastards, we're going to cut out their living guts
and use them to grease the treads of our tanks. We're going to murder those lousy Hun
bastards by the bushel. Now some of you boys, I know, are wondering whether or not you'll
chicken out under fire. Don't worry about it. I can assure you that you'll all do your duty.

The Nazis are the enemy. Wade into them. Spill their blood, shoot them in the belly. When
you put your hand into a bunch of goo, that a moment before was your best friends face,
you'll know what to do. Now there's another thing I want you to remember. I don't want to
get any messages saying that we are holding our position. We're not holding anything, we'll
let the Hun do that. We are advancing constantly, and we're not interested in holding onto
anything except the enemy. We're going to hold onto him by the nose, and we're going to
kick him in the ass. We're going to kick the hell out of him all the time, and we're going
to go through him like crap through a goose.

Now, there's one thing that you men will be able to say when you get back home, and you may
thank God for it. Thirty years from now when you're sitting around your fireside with your
grandson on your knee, and he asks you, "What did you do in the great World War Two?" You won't
have to say, "Well, I shoveled shit in Louisiana." Alright now, you sons of bitches, you know
how I feel. Oh! . . . I will be proud to lead you wonderful guys into battle anytime, anywhere.

That's all.

呵呵,把哪些零零碎碎的看法拼凑了起来,搞了一大篇,写到末了,感觉还是有太多太多的看法没能侃出来,我简直还能胡侃上几大篇,虽然意犹未尽,但言多必失,打住了。挂到文档上了,算上给楼主做广告吧,报答楼主的知遇之恩。

历尽英雄劫 赢得美人归 (trybird原创)

想对楼主讲一句:“楼主,我写了这篇乱评,许多人看了会眼晕,但楼主却是清醒的。请楼主务必记住文章的最高境界——无语。”

今个是St. Valentine's Day,祝楼主和他的美眉还有CSDN上的所有网友以及所有UMLChina的成员——

历尽英雄劫,赢得美人归!

或者

历尽美人吻,赢得美人归!

to trybird:

用一句最近比较流行的话来说,“我孤独一生,没想到最了解我的竟是一只菜鸟”(陈道明语)。连好色都被你看出来,果然是知音。“历尽英雄劫 赢得美人归”,很好的评价。昨天晚上看《生死时速》,原来文艺作品都是要这样写的。

敬候兄台的评论。

是的,我也认为每章结尾的地方Tompkins在他的MM送他的日记本上写下的总结真的是精辟极了——都是画龙点睛之笔啊!希望能对这些精华有进一步的研讨!

想必楼主也是个好色之徒,才和女朋友联手译书。我也是个好色的家伙,一贯色心不泯。想必男人好色不为过呀,只要能懂得控制就不算什么毛病吧,一点不好色的男人可能也很有问题啊。

如若把你译的那本项目管理小说概括评论为——历尽英雄劫 赢得美人归

不知楼主可否反对?

看了部分电子版,是一本好书,翻译的也不错。如果把书中的日记部分登出,的确值得大家讨论思考。
