Editorial Reviews

LA Yoga
Wu Wei's revised edition of the I Ching is a beautiful and clear adaptation of the ancient text for the modern user. His explanations are clear and easy to understand and his language and the answers and cautions given in the various kua are both profound and relevant. The I Ching is a universal wisdom that stands the test of time, and Wu Wei's adaptation is germane to the modern reader.
Magical Blend
The meaning of each of the kua, the symbolic configurations, is explained clearly and beautifully. This is a lovely book to have on your shelf and to use whenever you have questions about the mysterious unfolding of events in your universe.
