Well, it could be any number of things, but I found myself in a real depression after not very long. The Wilhelm translation is very poetic and indirect and Carol Anthony's Guide is very direct. At first this is a relief, but soon I found myself confused and depressed, criticised into a spiritual corner that became a vicious circle as I tried to seek guidance and, finally, I just let go.
Further reading on Taoism has helped me come out of this-- suggesting basic principals that are far more sympathetic with modern western lifestyles and parenting of young children-- and this has highlighted my folly: serious spiritual studies often assume that one can/does/wants to live like a monk. The Guide definitely is for those in a more monk-like situation than I am.
I feel strongly about Taoism as a, well, a way of life, but found this book just too much for my situation. If you're just looking at divination it's not for you, if you're looking at serious interpretations of the I Ching... make sure you're ready.
It is a thorough interpretation focusing more on the psychological and spiritual aspects of readings and unlike some other works such as Sarah Dening, it therefore does not so much draw you into literal understandings. I think both and various levels of interpretation are important but Anthony demonstrates a more personal and general applicability of I ching readings.
It is a very thought-provoking and intelligent guide and certainly worth buying if you are a serious student of the Tao.
