But since I read the book I will venture to do so. I have no mind for poetry , especially when the symbolism is from a culture so foreign to Western thinking. Some parts were very interesting and enjoyable , but without a deeper understanding of Chinese culture I felt I was going in blind. Some extra commentary would have helped, but would Not what I expected It is really not fair for me to give a review.
Some extra commentary would have helped, but would have made the book so much longer.
I was hoping for more short pithy sayings of wisdom in the form of Proverbs, but none were present. Some of the comments were about such mundane things as to not even be worth writing about , but probably had significance to the culture. Maybe before reading this book a person should get a little more background in Chinese culture.
So, although this is probably a good book it was not a good book for me. This is one of my favorites in philosophy. Confucius takes such a positive, simple, and humanistic approach on life which really affects you deeply. It's amazing that Confucius lived more than years ago; many of teachings still ring true to present day events and views.
Books confucius wrote what book
I also love how you can relate Confucius' life to that of Jesus'.

Highly recommended! Dec 02, Robert Bagnall rated it it was ok. Not so much read as abandoned about a third of the way through.
He may be wise, but I think he dropped the ball somewhat in not getting a good editor. I was expecting wisdom not his opinion on if certain ancient Chinese prince's were good ones.
