3.0 out of 5 stars Not at all user-friendly!!, 25 Mar. 2003
This review is from: The Taoist "I Ching" (Paperback)
There is a marvellous quotation that states " a book is no less scholarly for being readable, nor more informative for being dull." This book provides an excellent example of the above! Doubtless it is an extraordinarily researched and historically accurate translation of this complex and detailed science, but it is hard going, "heavy" and it needs the tenacity and determination of a truly dedicated disciple to even begin to scratch the surface. If you really need an excellent reference book in which to delve for research then perhaps this may well be suitable. If however, you would prefer a no-nonsense, readable, thought-provoking tome, which will not leave you more confused than when you started it - this book is not for you.
