Publisher Comments:

(Originally published in cloth under the title The Man of Many Qualities: A Legacy of the I Ching).

In this new interpretation and orientation of the I Ching, Dr. Siu not only continues the ancient Chinese custom of providing commentary on the text but has also included relevant passages taken from the world's literature, spanning 6,000 years and representing 60 countries.
