It is full of history so I got very little out of the belief. It criss crosses between Confucianism to Taoism throught the book. The best thing I got out of the whole book is that mostly it is a book that continually says has the same message, "Do unto others as they would have them do unto you." I have found that most religions practice this philosophy.

I do not agree with the evaluation of the book. The only two religions spoken was Confucianism and Taoism. You will be more confused reading it

I just can't get myself to finish this book. I might flip through and skim, but as far as actually reading this book, too dry for my tastes. Might be the boring history that you have to conquer in the beginning. Gonna mark this down as something for someone who likes lots of historical facts before they get into the actual beliefs stuff.
