Recommends it for: Spiritual seekers
I had this book on my shelf awhile before I started working with it. There is nothing fluffy or feel-good new age about it. If you cast the I Ching as a part of your spiritual discipline, you need to keep this book by your side. Although my copy, the second revised edition, is riddled with editorial inconsistencies, the content itself is life changing. It is not a translation of the I Ching hexagrams or an alternative to Wilhelm-Baynes interpretation, but expounds on it, based on the author's ...more

Carol Anthony's version of this book uses modernized English to reinterpret the Wilhelm/Baynes translation, the classic I Ching. The "superior man", the prince, the duke and so on can really be stumbling blocks to understanding a reading, but Carol takes care of that ably.

This book is my best companion. I keep in near and read from it regularly.

As with my other I Chings, I can't really say I have "read" it, per se, and those who are familiar with the I Ching-- the Book of Changes-- know what I mean by this. But while I am getting to know this book, I wanted to record some impressions of it. I will come back and edit this, as I go along, no doubt.

My books have been packed away for several years (long story), and I only recently began to replace the ones most dear to me that I have missed all this time-- the I Ching and its many

One of my main guides for the I Ching. She writes from a psychological approach that is like no other guide I've found. I've been to see her speak and admire her work with this ancient oracle.

I read the first edition long ago; I think it was Kevin or Jim who replaced it with the third edition in the 1990's. I learned how to change life from the inside out.
