I am a high school sophomore and I read this book for my research project I like the book Lives of Confucius, because this book shows me everything about Confucius, from his personal life to his ideas, and the world’s view about the culture, I been under a Confucius type of education in China for 9 years, and I feel this book is true and it has a lot facts from the old books. It is a good book for people who want to learn about Confucius. One thing I really like about the book it organizes the details by Chapter, and give a measureable title, like “ Kongzi, in Sima Qian’s Shiji and the Analects” and all the facts from that Chapter are from Shiji or Analects, and it also proves quotes from Analects. It has both the old age and modern days, and the differences of the time period also make it interesting. I like this book, because from this book I know more things about Confucius more than just his ideas. I know more about his personal life from this book, like he is only elementary school educated, and his ideas helped a lot of kings or modern day leaders with their politics, this book has turned Confucius’ image in my heart from gray to colored. In this book , they introduce a lot of his followers, like Zigong, Zilu, Ziyu, This book is actually successful because it finally shows me that Confucius’ life is not that boring.
