The I Ching ( Book of Change ) is considered the oldest of the Chinese classics, and has throughout Chinese history commanded unsurpassed prestige and popularity. Containing several layers of text and given numerous levels of interpretation, the I Ching has been venerated for more than three thousand years as an oracle of fortune, a guide to success, and a source of wisdom. The underlying theme of the text is change, and how this fundamental force influences all aspects of life--from business and politics to personal relationships. In this translation, previously published as The Tao of Organization, the root text is supported by commentary by Cheng Yi. A distinguished scholar and teacher of the eleventh century, Cheng Yi is regarded as one of the greatest sociological thinkers of Song-dynasty China. He conveys a fundamentally forward-thinking attitude in his treatment of the text, based on the belief that since change is an inexorable law of the universe encompassing everything in the world, great and small, it is better to overtake change than be overtaken by it.… (mais)

A nice short translation, easy to carry around in your pocket if you are so inclined. But its brevity can also be a flaw. Without any commentary, the abstract symbolism is sometimes lost, as well as any understanding of what the symbols might have meant 3000 years ago when the I Ching was first written. ( )

I Ching: The Book of Change is an ancient Chinese text on divination and cosmology. It is the basis of many traditional Taoist writings, including Tao Te Ching and The Art of War. The I Ching isn't exactly a sit-down and enjoy kind of book; instead, it functions as a reference guide for oracle reading. Traditionally, people used coins, yarrow sticks, and bones to cast lots. The resulting numbers then corresponded with hexagrams--mystic symbols that foretold different outcomes. I admit that I'm a skeptic when it comes to fortunetelling and other supernatural rituals. However, the I Ching is an important part of Chinese history, not just in its practice but also in its far-reaching influence over East Asian culture and philosophy. This edition of the book, published by Shambhala, is part of their pocketbook series on religion and philosophy. It includes an introduction and guide to using the I Ching as well as a handy consultation chart.

Full disclosure: I received a copy of this book through Goodreads. ( )
