    I keep coming back to this old friend for advice and counsel. The book will never tell you "what to do" but only how to think aboutor approach the question of doing.

    Like this version. Have the hard back copy and it is nice quality. Also a 'Pocket I Ching' version of this same edition was published in the 80's, just containing the 64 Hexagrams each with: Condition/ Judgment/ Image/ Degrees of change, which has been very useful to take away on trips.In my experience this really works. Don't use it so often, but when I have it's been very useful, shockingly accurate at times.

    OK This is the granddaddy of I Ching primers in English, Cary Baynes Translation for Richard Wilhelm's German version is considered to be THE reference book for all other English books on the subject until very recently. If you are young and know a little about Chinese Romanization the book is written in English with Wade/Giles Chinese Romanization (i.e. chi'ng instead of the modern Pinyin qing Tao/Dao etc.)But nevertheless for a good understanding and significant historical background of the I Ching outside of China itself I highly recommend it. Mr. Wilhelm traveled, lectured and taught for many years in the early 20th Century on this and related Taoist subjects. He was very famous in his own right and Baynes English translation gave him the :market in America as well as his native Germany/European audiences.

    Written before WWII so references to societies - Europe and China - are interesting. This is basically a cook book but the amplifications are very interesting psychologically. A discussion of how the way applies to artists is very interesting.

    This is the book I would like with me on a desert island.

    An ancient Chinese manual for divination, the I-Ching (Yijing 易經) has long been the source of much interest both inside and outside of China.

    This version, the translation by Richard Wilhelm (the eminent German sinologist), is still one of the best around.

    Wow! The trick is to not think of these things as signs. but symbols. A sign means one thing and a symbol reverberates with meaning. You can not pin it down. Allow it to speak. Try not to corral it into some meaning.

    This book has been my guide and my mentor for almost 35 years now - I couldn't be without it. Of this book Carl Jung says "For lovers of self-knowledge, of wisdom - if there be such - it seems to be the right book." I totally agree.

    This is not a book for the idly curious. It requires careful reading and study to gain even a superficial understanding of it. However, the effort is worth it.

    Para entender las enseñanzas, hay que imaginarlo. El I Ching es muy acertado y comprensible.
