Reviewed by Irene Watson for Reader Views (12/10)

 

According to Master Huang “The I Ching is a very ancient book. It existed more than two thousand years before Confucius (ca. 551-479 B.C.).”  He further explains the original book was simple to understand, but as time passed, interpretations varied due to lack of punctuation in the original text and the variety of meanings to the original characters.  Master Huang took the challenge to translate the original text into a comprehensive guide for I Ching.

Although there are other translations, I encourage those familiar with I Ching to consider investigating this version.  I feel you will be pleasantly surprised at the ease of understanding this book provides. For those that are just embarking into the world of I Ching, I highly recommend “The Complete I Ching” by Master Haung.  It is one of the most concise, yet the most uncomplicated book, I’ve encountered on I Ching.
