英語(英文)ブックレポート書き方例4 Dibs: in search of self

~MIND~
Book:Virginia, A. (1964). Dibs: in search of self. NY: Harmondsworth, Middlesex: Penguin Books Ltd.

Summery
This book is about a play therapy for a boy whose name is Dibs and this story is true story. Dibs is a boy who did not have himself and he could not talk with people and could not express himself to other people correctly, so he could just cried or screamed when he felt uncomfortable. The author of this book, who was a therapist, gave him play therapy. He let Dibs in a therapy room and let him play as Dibs want. In that time, he looked Dibs’ playing and repeated what Dibs said. In other word, author just admitted his playing. As he played some play therapy, he was becoming to being able to communicate with people. We can see this progress in the inside play therapies. Then, finally he confirmed himself inside his mind. He opened his mind to other people.

Comment
Everyone needs the place to be able to show him, and we need to be admitted by someone. Dibs did not have that, and he locked his mind. The author became the place where Dibs can show himself. Through this experience, he made himself inside his mind. In this true story, his IQ was 168 when after finishing playing therapy author checked. Even such a gifted boy, he could just scream or cry when he do not have the place. This story gives suggestions for us as well as therapists. Every single person needs the place to show him and to be understood. We made our identity there. The place might be parents, friend and friends. In this age, we too much consider the other people’s evaluation or judgment, so we sometimes feel alone or loneliness. In that time, we maybe have to back our place. Through that, we do “the search of ourselves”.

英語(英文)ブックレポートの書き方例3 The greatest coach ever

Book Report 1
Book1: Tony, D. David, R. Tom, O and Other. (2001). The greatest coach ever. CA: Regal From Gospel Light.

Summary
This book was written about John Wooden, who was a head coach of UCLA basketball team, and 40 people who lead very various fields and know John Wooden well, wrote about him from their own visions. He was awarded “Best Coach Ever” in 2009. He won 10 times NCAA Division1 championships including 7 years in a row, and both of them are records. His coaching philosophy is based on the Bible. He lead his team not only teaching skills of basketball but also his character. Team brought up by his gentle coaching based on Bible not screaming or being mad. This kind of coaching affected a pastor, the president of a company, coaches of other sports, coaches of other teams and so on as well as players. Therefore they use his principle of life, for example how to decide our life, and his coaching mind is still alive through them, although he stopped to coach on a basketball court.

Comments
It is very hard to be a great coach if a coach just has knowledge, although knowledge is one of the most important things. For example, the basketball coach who know it very well, but do not have a philosophy of life never success. The coach having great and strong philosophy gets respect. If a coach just tries to lead players by the techniques, and a team wins, it is just temporally win. A coach should also teach and show what life is. Coaches must be a good person before to be a good coach. We feel sometimes hard to make up who we are and decide how to live. In other word, to make our philosophy of life is quite difficult. John Wooden put it on the Bible by his faith. Therefore he could lead the players by solid coaching and get great prize.

英語(英文)ブックレポートの書き方例2 Miracle on 49th street

Book Report 2
Book2: Lupica, M. (2006). Miracle on 49th street. NY: Penguin Young Readers Group.

Summary
This book is a fiction novel, a field of leisure. This story is about a basketball star, Josh Cameron and his daughter, Molly. Josh Cameron had not recognized he had family before Molly, 12, came to him. She was a daughter between him and his ex-girlfriend in college, who dead by cancer. Her mother kept a secret to Molly about her father, Josh, just before her dying. After that, Molly met to his father, Josh, by relying on her mother’s friend, but he did not deal with her. Then, she understood why her mother had not told truth before. The reason is “just basketball and himself are there in his mind”. She was very sad once, but she tried Josh to be “a real father”. And, finally she changed his mind and he decided to be a real father of her. At last, he recognized how important family is and little 12 years girl change his life priority.

Comments
I moved by Molly’s humanity a lot, even she was a little girl. 12 years old girl wanted her father to be a real her father seriously, and she committed to the purpose as a daughter. I loved her frankly and pure attitude above all. On the other hand, I understood Josh attitude to think just himself and basketball because super star have to do effort very much and stand kind of loneliness, but even a super star he had to be a person before a star. I guessed that author’s message. He was not a good person; however he is a great basketball player. In other words, he lacked something. This is more of a miracle story which NBA super star found comfortable place (12 years girl) where every person need than a miracle story that Molly, who lost her mother be adapted by Josh.
