Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I have a friend who lived in a cabin by himself for two years and memorized the I Ching. He revered its wisdom that much. You can save yourself the trouble of memorizing, though, by picking up a copy of this newly revised and expanded edition of Wu Wei's version of this timeless classic. Its introduction beautifully explains the philosophical explanation of why this divination system works so well. Additional chapters give its history as well as a pronunciation guide. 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 events in your universe." --Magical Blend magazine

"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."

    Excellent!

    I really enjoyed reading the I Ching: The Book of Answers and found the author's interpretations of the I Ching's sixty-four hexagrams insightful and profound, providing clear, unambiguous direction while remaining completely true to the ancient writings. The I Ching is thought to date back more than six thousand years to the great sage Fu Hsi and it lies at the root of both Confucian and Taoist philosophies. Such a profound and timeless classic of universal wisdom promises to be obtuse, but Wu Wei brings it to life. This newly revised and expanded version of the I Ching is unparalleled in its clarity, making this the easiest-to-grasp I Ching ever published. The packaging, with the french flaps, is beautiful. I will be giving this wonderful book of wisdom as gifts.
