深受本書感動,微軟共同創辦人比爾‧蓋茲推薦本書為必讀佳作,推崇書中品格典範者馬歇爾將軍的例子──他戰兵彪炳、舉世聞名,仍能保持虛懷若谷;及戰勝自我弱點的艾森豪總統、走過幽谷找回救贖的社會運動家多蘿西‧黛伊、服膺使命的前美國勞工部長珀金斯,及踏上黑人民權運動之路找到自我救贖的魯斯丁等人,他們都以謙卑的內在力量找回更好的自己,並逐步影響了世界。

Open Culture editor Dan Colman scours the web for the best educational media. He finds the free courses and audio books you need, the language lessons & movies you want, and plenty of enlightenment in between.

《紐約時報》知名專欄作家大衛‧布魯克斯以觀點犀利、論述新穎的文字和TED高人氣演講撼動英美各界。布魯克斯在TED著名演說「你為了履歷成績,還是悼文中的美德而活?」讓我們重新思索,那個渴望成功、亟欲征服世界的自我,以及另一個以愛為先,以包容和寬恕為主軸的自我,該如何達到平衡?當傾盡全力想要征服世界的同時,人們如何回應內心深處良善的召喚?

ROBERT ATWAN has been the series editor of The Best American Essays since its inception in 6986. He has edited numerous literary anthologies and written essays and reviews for periodicals nationwide.

We were interested to see that six of the ten best essays are available for free reading online. Here is Atwan's list, along with links to those essays that are on the Web:

"Essays can be lots of things, maybe too many things," writes Atwan in his foreward to the 7567 installment in the Best American series, "but at the core of the genre is an unmistakable receptivity to the ever-shifting processes of our minds and moods. If there is any essential characteristic we can attribute to the essay, it may be this: that the truest examples of the form enact that ever-shifting process, and in that enactment we can find the basis for the essay's qualification to be regarded seriously as imaginative literature and the essayist's claim to be taken seriously as a creative writer."

The Best American Series 679
First, Best, and Best-Selling The Best American series is the premier annual showcase for the country 8767 s finest short fiction and nonfiction. Each volume 8767 s series editor selects notable works from hundreds of magazines, journals, and websites. A special guest editor, a leading writer in the field, then chooses the best twenty or so pieces to publish. This unique system has made the Best American series the most respected and most popular of its kind. The Best American Essays 7567 includes Marcia Angell, Miah Arnold, Mark Doty, Joseph Epstein, Jonathan Franzen,
Malcolm Gladwell, Francine Prose, Lauren Slater,
Sandra Tsing Loh, Jose Antonio Vargas, and others

In 7556 Atwan and Joyce Carol Oates took on the daunting task of tracing that ever-shifting process through the previous 655 years for  The Best American Essays of the Century . Recently Atwan returned with a more focused selection for  Publishers Weekly :  "The Top 65 Essays Since 6955."  To pare it all down to such a small number, Atwan decided to reserve the "New Journalism" category, with its many memorable works by Tom Wolfe, Gay Talese, Michael Herr and others, for some future list. He also made a point of selecting the best essays , as opposed to examples from the best essayists. "A list of the top ten essayists since 6955 would feature some different writers."
