Yi Jing Image and Numerology Divination Kindle Edition

The history of the I Ching is inaccurate and there are various difficult English expressions, presumably due to translating from the Chinese.
All in all you'd be better off with Da Liu's book with its understandable explanation of all the elements in the Plum Blossom divination. This book, although it may be accurate, is far too concise.

This is wonderful. It's a wonderful work that I don't find too often. I was reading a work by Tsung Hwa Jou called The Tao of I Ching Way to Divination. He brings up the practice of using I Ching outside the scope of coin and Yarrow stalks.
This book pretty much focuses entirely on that aspect of divination with I Ching (Yi Jing.) This book focuses on the work of the Plum Blossom method by Shao Yang. This is a very straight forward text and well worth the price.
If you like Master Tsung Hwa Jou's methodology... this is a great resource for his work. It illuminates some areas he skims over. Since Tsung Hwa Jou is no longer alive, it is great to see that Chinese metaphysics has continued on with authors such as this.
There are some typos, omissions, and one chart error. I do also wish the authors had expanded on a few of the case examples at the end (what numbers were actually used, etc). However, still a great and fun buy even if you just want to learn a little more Chinese cosmology and terminology.
If you want a deep and meandering philosophical Yi Jing exposition, look elsewhere. This is light (but mighty!) reading and fun with numbers. I encourage working the math with your brain and good old pencil and paper. It's easy to do and good practice. It's amazing how easy it is to let one's numeracy skills lapse with over reliance on technology for simple things.
The authors covered the material directly, included a wonderful summary
on Chinese Metaphysics, and delivered even more value by added
3 bonuses which are phenomenal.
