Few realize that Carl Jung based his 64 human archetypes on the archetypes presented in the hexagrams of the I Ching. Archetypes being principle themes common to human experience irrespective of culture and covering the gamut of human life experiences. It has also been used as a form of divination but from a philosophical standpoint it has many truths to reveal.

I first read it cover to cover from its philosophy viewpoint. It explains a lot. Then I tried asking questions and was awed by the answers.

This is THE version of the I-Ching to own. I have a ragged version of the hard copy, and now I own the digital version. There are a few typos, but other than that its layout is excellent. What a great book.

I watched a YouTube video and a lady was explaining I Ching and talked about this book. So I bought it and I just got it earlier today in the mail and it's well worth it. Even if you're just slightly interested in I Ching, get this book it will open your eyes and you won't be disappointed!!!

I was surprised at how neat this book is! Between libraries and book stores, I have looked at many different versions of the I Ching, and I can easily say that this is an unparalleled resource. It is truly an exceptionally useful and interesting book! To paraphrase another reviewer (Damarisd6): this particular I Ching is a fundamental in my collection of beloved books.

One of the few books I have purchased several times to give as gifts and I keep a copy at home and at the office.  I will forget about it for a long time and the need will arise for a bit of timeless wisdom.  And there it is and it always makes sense.

This was the first version of the I Ching I ever had, and though I've tried many other translations and interpretations (mainly due to being away from home and wanting a quick consultation with the oracle!), this is the clearest and the best. Highly recommended.

The I Ching Book of Changes completes my personal library of beloved books. This book comes with a life source of it's own. The wisdom and knowledge found within this book make it a true companion for all the ages. I am humbled and grateful to Marion Weinstein (Positive Magic) for her introduction to this unforgetable experience. Marion you are loved.
