"Now in a new revised edition, I Ching Life: Becoming Your Authentic Self distills the wisdom found within one of the most ancient forms of Chinese wisdom and divination. Wu Wei, author of a dozen books on Chinese philosophy and personal growth, presents the most enlightening secrets of I Ching in plain terms, as well as offering a simple tour of how the I Ching works. Enthusiastically recommended for anyone with an interest the metaphysical rhythms and life--transformative lessons that can be drawn from millennia of Chinese philosophy. It is unworthy of us to believe that our magnificent Universe, which contains such beauty and grandeur, would crown the ending of our lives with emptiness."
--Midwest Book Review
"I Ching Life relates the I Ching to both universal law and personal growth. It is a gentle handbook for putting ancient spiritual principles into modern-day practice using the I Ching as both teacher and oracle. The wisdom it contains seems to open effortlessly before us from one page to the next. Throughout, Wu Wei reminds us that abiding by universal law (following what the I Ching calls 'the path of the superior person') brings us the happiness and prosperity we desire. The size, format, and artistic touches throughout make I Ching Life inviting. The cover design is appealing and accurately represents what the reader will find inside. After finishing this volume, many readers will be interested in learning more. Wei's other books The I Ching: The Book of Answers, The I Ching Workbook, and A Tale of the I Ching provide additional instruction."
