1.0 out of 5 stars No content links 18 Mar. 2013
By Evei
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Be aware, this book is absolutely impossible to navigate as there is no table of contents links. It is useless for such a massive volume as you would not normally read it from cover to cover but rather use it as a reference. This very common problem on kidle electronic reference books.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Yi King 1 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Beautifully Translated as far back as 1854 - 1855 and digested in this 'must own' book. Even though the writings go back centuries into Chinese history and Confucianism with the classical system of philosophical and ethical teachings that are relevant even today in the 21st Century. Confucius is a man I wished I could of met when he was alive. A great and learned teacher who is still influencing those of us today who are lucky enough to own books like this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Five stars but... 9 April 2013
By robert trainor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This translation by Legge is actually rather good--better, I think, than Wilhelm's. Legge was somewhat skeptical of the book and did not try to force a favorable light on what he was translating--as Wilhelm did. However, unless one is familiar with the I Ching, this Kindle version of Legge's translation will be difficult to follow. But for those who have a working knowledge of the book, this is a good version to have. For those interested in obtaining the best version of the I Ching, I recommend the Ritsema + Karchner version--not, ironically, because it is translated well but because each Chinese character used in the text is presented with all of its various Chinese meanings. This enables one to, quite literally, make one's own translation of the book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Bad presentation of great book - such a shame 8 April 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This wonderful and scholarly book is a great complement to other more user-friendly versions of the text such as Huang, and it is a great shame that this version of Legge's classic has no usable table of contents, no hyperlinks, and above all omits the wonderful introduction of the printed original. This great book is therefore rendered shallow and unusable by thoughtless and incompetent presentation. It is a waste even of the $1 purchase price.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not even worthy of one Star... 18 Dec. 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I rarely leave feedback but on this particular instance I feel compel to do so. The book has no index whatsoever, no way for you to navigate the contents or find an exact hexagram unless you read it from page one. That, I found exasperating and infuriating.

If you are actually working on this field, do not invest time or money on this aberration. You would come to regreat it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chinese Classical Literature/Philosophy 13 Oct. 2014
By Eric Rene Rogerson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a Classic of Chinese Philosophy, who am I to review it? I can barely understand it.Meant to be pondered, I suppose, it is considered an excellent translation, again, I am in no position to know.
