Library Journal
For many American readers, contact with the 12 totem animals of the Chinese zodiac is limited to a brief and superficial entry on a place mat, but there is naturally much more to this ancient tradition than that. Wu (Seeking the Spirit of the Book of Change), a teacher of Qigong, has written a brief but effective treatment of the animal symbols of the zodiac in the Chinese system, outlining their relationship to the hexagrams of the I Ching. Wu's book is richly illustrated, includes ceremonies for each symbol, and offers guides to finding your own symbol (it's more complex than you thought). VERDICT This work will fill an important gap on many library shelves, as well as in the understanding of readers curious about Asian religions and self-knowledge.
