This oddly meandering compendium is written in the style of what I presume is the Confucian essayist speculating on the vagaries of existence. There is little to no critical edge here and the self-congratulatory tone kind of bothers me but there is no denying this guy knows his traditional Vietnamese culture forwards and back.

For those that truly want to learn about Vietnamese culture and are not satisfied with the war stories or tour guidebooks. Highly recommended. Beautifully written and lovely to read. A big book and heavy.
