Confucius is one of the most important thinkers in Chinese history, and his theories of how to run a society are fascinating. That being said, the book is really difficult to engage with because it is a set of aphorisms that don't really explain the people they reference. So an aphorism will refer to Tsua, but never explain who that is or what we (as readers outside Confucius' immediate political context) need to know about that person.
