Everyone needs an I-Ching, especially in times of uncertainty (war, jobs, disease). I bought a stack of them and gave one to every young adult I know, as I was given one when I was 19. The readings are amazingly accurate and folks are astounded that they go back thousands of years. A Berkeley math professor friend worked out a theoretical connection between changing chance (the sticks or coins) and showed me a direct connection between measuring change scientifically and applying it sociologically, the real-world scientific basis for 'fortune telling' and something that conventional astrology cannot claim. I was amazed, and sold, and with each use, came to apply it as a guide in life. Don't take readings too often, as you can lose perspective (not 'seeing the forest for the trees,' but I check in weekly or more depending on the level of stress and intensity of upheaval in my life. Everyone should keep at least 3 copies to consult in times of uncertainty (for advice) and success (for warnings), keeping enough on hand to give to new loved ones as you grow your friends. And at $5 a copy for the big 480 page hardback book, you can afford to!
