Description

First among the ancient classics, the I Ching or Book of Changes is one of the world's most influential books, comparable to the Bible, the Koran, and the Upanishads.

The I Ching's purpose is universal: to provide good counsel to its users in making decisions during times of change. Since its origins about 3,000 years ago, it has become a compendium of wisdom used by people of many cultures and eras.

This groundbreaking new translation by Dr. Margaret Pearson is based on the text created during the first centuries of the Zhou Dynasty, study of documents showing how it was used in the dynasty, and on current archaeological research findings. Her translation removes centuries of encrusted inaccuracies to better reveal the I Ching's core truths for today's readers.

Whether you are interested in trying this millennia-tested method of making wise choices or in understanding the worldview of the early Chinese, this edition is essential reading.

However, the author seems to be quite familiar with Eastern thought as a whole, not just in Taoism, but also Zen Buddhism. Therefore, in some way this may add or take away from the Tao Teh Ching. Some of his interpretations are quite simple and beautiful. However, when I compare some passages to this version, she seems to have left out a lot of content. It is unclear, however, if the author even has the "correct" or "original" version of the Tao Teh Ching to... See More

translate in the first place. It is my understanding that there many different versions and interpretations of this book even among Buddhists in Asia. The extra you get with this book is the Asian art and it feels larger and richer than other books I've browsed.
