5.0 out of 5 starsA clear view of ancient ideas20 Aug 2012

I've long pondered how to bring ancient Chinese ideas to life for people who are neither ancient nor Chinese. Paul Goldin does just this in this concise and remarkably clear book. If you want to understand the context in which Chinese ideas and practices related to sex and sexual regulation and cultivation developed, don't look elsewhere first. Start with Professor Goldin's book. It is a priceless resource for all who would be such seekers.

I bought this book because my grandson in college needed it in order to do a report for his class. I guess it met his expectations, since he got an A on the review.
