From the Back Cover
"The Little Book of Changes" is a fresh interpretation of the "I Ching," one of the oldest books in the world-recognized by both Confucians and Taoists as a fundamental work. Author Peter Crisp's perceptive and poetic rendition reimagines the ancient philosophical text as a friendly, accessible, and modern companion.
The sixty-four readings in the "The Little Book of Changes" are oracular insights that offer suggestions on how to respond to life's challenges and opportunities. Set against our ever-changing circumstances, this helpful guide is here to remind us of life's constants. Think of it as a friend to consult with when you have things to discuss and decisions to make. Using tried-and-true, easy-to-follow methods involving flipping three coins six times, you will be led to thought-provoking responses to any questions you may have.
About the Author
Dreamer, poet, lyricist, mystic, musician, and writer, Peter Crisp was born in South Africa. He was transported as a baby by ship to England, where he grew up on a free-range farm in East Anglia. Since leaving home at the age of sixteen, he has spent half his adult life on the West Coast of America and half in the UK. He considers himself to be, like Thomas Paine, "a citizen of the world." Having consulted the I Ching for more than forty years, he is still frequently surprised by its magical properties. Crisp currently resides on the dramatic Atlantic coast of North Cornwall, where he works under the banner of "Ghostwriter in the Sky." He is busy putting the finishing touches on The Adventures of the Rainbow Gypsies and The Halcyon Days of Peter White. These are true stories from the 1960s and early 1970s that are quite unbelievable. But "truth," as Lord Byron observed, "is always strange-stranger than fiction."
