I chose this rating because this is a Chinese classic and it deserves no less. I like the translation - vital for a classic of this kind. I like the thoughts so carefully expressed. It is like toffee - it needs careful chewing. Faults? Well this isn't a book you can skim. It needs very careful thought, although it seems deceptively easy to read. Then you have to try and put it into practice... If you are a thoughtful person, genuinely seeking self- improvement then this could be the book for you. If you want entertainment, it has some good bits and a real insight into politics and polite behaviour.
