CHAPTER 1


THE BENEFIT OF ASKING THE RIGHT QUESTIONS


Introduction


Any of us who enjoy movies are curious about the content of the latest films. Should we go see them now, wait for them to show up at our preferred rental location, or avoid them altogether? Lots of film experts are available to advise us. But which of their opinions should we follow? Opinions are cheap; anyone can have one of those. But which film expert possesses the kind of knowledge that gives us an opinion on which we can rely?

The authors of this book are film fanatics, but we both want to be selective in what we see. While we are fascinated by film as a medium, there are many films that we do not wish to see. Deciding which those are is hard work. To make the task easier, we often use one of our favorite web sites, http://www. rottentomatoes.com.

However, one of the most obvious things one learns when reading dozens of reviews of a particular film is the certainty that human judgment will not be identical. Pick any movie you wish; check the reviews. Regardless of how many reviewers hated the movie, some reviewer somewhere will string together a positive review. Similarly, pick the most popular movie in history; go to the reviews. What do you find? Some expert thought it was a dog.

This experience is a metaphor for much of life. Doctors, legislators, architects, plumbers, and detectives all disagree among themselves about the proper course of action in particular circumstances. How are we consumers of opinions to respond? The book you are about to read contains the best answer we know. You need to build skills and attitudes that will enable you to decide for yourself which opinions to make your own.

As a thoughtful person you must make a choice about how you will react to what you see and hear. One alternative is to just accept whatever you encounter; doing so automatically results in your making someone else's opinion your own. A more active alternative consists of asking questions in an effort to reach a personal decision about the worth of what you have experienced. This book is written for those who prefer the second alternative.



【垮翻】

(本书的中译本至少有3个,分别对应英文的第三,七,十版,追求信达雅的同学自己去找,我来翻一个最垮的版本,当然里面包含了个人的思考和对上述3版汉译的一点修正,都读过了,我都不满意)

《学会提问》

第一章 这么想事儿的好处

简介

爱看电影的人都关心最近上档的热片儿。买票看吗?租碟?还是赶紧躲开?老多影评人给你建议了,听谁的呀?看法儿不稀罕,谁都有看法儿。重要的是你该信哪个看法儿。

本书的俩作者都老爱看电影了,可也不是啥都看。有些真好看,有些看了真瞎眼。咋分辨呢?俺俩一般都上烂番茄网先搂搂。

但你一去你就蒙圈了。随便找个片儿,不管多少人说他烂,都有人说它牛掰;反过来也成立。

生活中好多事儿都这样。大夫,人大代表,设计房子的,修水管子的,警察,他们在专业问题上都经常瞧不上同行。你听谁的吧。嘿嘿,咱俩有招儿,教你——必须地。

人家跟你说事儿,正常人儿都得给个反应吧。一种是人家跟你说啥你都信你都听,一种是老憋着问人家几个为什么,挑个刺儿唔的。俺俩给你出的招儿都是第二种的。
