The I Ching: The Book of Answersby Wu Wei
Synopses & Reviews
The I Ching is one of the world's most profound sources of universal wisdom. Its origins 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. Over the ages, philosophers, warriors, statesmen, and people like you have consulted this ancient classic to seek direction, success and good fortune in their lives. This revised and expanded edition of Wu Wei's well-loved version of the I Ching is unparalleled in its clarity, making this the easiest-to-grasp I Ching ever published.
"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."
"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 of events in your universe."
The I Ching is a book of answers that miraculously guides us to success in every possible situation. Yet, if we are to rely with absolute certainty on the I Ching for guidance to our most vital questions, we need answers that are clear and straightforward, leaving no room for confusion or misunderstanding. Wu Wei has guided thousands of people in the use of this great book and knows precisely what you need so you can put your trust in its prophetic guidance.
Wu Wei's insightful interpretations of the I Ching's sixty-four hexagrams provide perfectly clear, unambiguous direction while remaining completely true to the ancient writings. You will know exactly what action to take to avoid misfortune and achieve success.
The I Ching: The Book of Answers contains everything you need to know about the I Ching and how to use it.
