Describe a book you recently read that you wou
ld like to read again.

You should say:

What the book is about

Why you read it

What you learned from this book

And explain why you would like to read it again.


 

参考答案:

Ok, well after a bit of thought, I’ve decided that the book I’d like to talk about is one called Think Like DaVinci, as it's definitely a book I would like to read again at some point, for reasons I'll come on to shortly. 

 

But firstly though, with regard to what the book’s about, well in a nutshell, it basically explains how all of us have the capability and potential to become a genius, like DaVinci. And it outlines a few various things that he used to do, which we can also get into the habit of doing. So essentially, it puts forward some ideas on how we can all live to our full potential.

 

Anyway, as for what made me read it, well if my memory serves me correctly, I was browsing around in my local bookshop one day, and the book's cover kind of just caught my eye when I saw the name DaVinciwritten in big bold letters. So I read a few pages to see if it was any good, and ended up buying it.

 

I should also mention the fact that I'm quite a big fan of self-help books, because on the whole, I tend to learn quite a lot from them, and this book was definitely no exception. Just to give you an example, I would say I've learned to become much more observant after reading this book, such as generally paying more attention to everything around me. And in so doing, it’s made me appreciate things a lot more.

 

Of course, there were a number of other things I learned, but nothing else is coming to mind right now, and that's really kind of why I wanna read the book again, because I've forgotten a lot of it. So I kind of need to refresh my memory a little bit!
