This book is hard to categorize. It seems to be constructed from bits of very old ideas melded to explanations of the modern equivalent. Mainly, it is about China, Chinese thought and philosophy as opposed to American culture and ideas. For example, our American athletes in the Bei Jing Olympics were rambunctious and fun-loving, but Chinese athletes were angry, stressed and teary-eyed. We Americans are individuals while the Chinese are brought up to be units of the group. I found it fascinating and enlightening, seeing advantages to each philosophy and, maybe someday, critical for us to understand.
