An easier I Ching

This is a great version of the I Ching! Carol Anthony takes the sometimes difficult to understand messages of the I Ching and turns them into plain english. Very good for beginners, or for anyone who wishes to get the full message of the I Ching without doing all the interpretation.

It has super powers

Carol K. Anthony is one of the most unassuming writers I have ever read, but how could she be otherwise? She has hooked into the power of the cosmos; and by comparison her tiny ego, tiny skills, tiny ability to convey truth comes up a tad tiny. This reflection on, translation of, whatever, reads like scripture. I simply adore and have talked with several other friends who concur. It is simply divine. A key to cosmic balance and every day common sense. I could gush about it for hours. Fact is: this is a book with super powers.

On the Road

The I Ching has been in my life since I was nineteen. I am now four-four. My interest has not waned. But since I have read C.K.Anthony's books, ( only a year ago ) what I had only felt obscurely, like swimming under water, has been put into words. The author has not only written efficiently but has expressed a deep personnal commitment. As if she had blended two opposites : a personnal truth and the contact with the outside world. Bravo to Carol K. Anthony.

Translation Adds to Other Souces That Illuminate the I-Ching

This is by far one of the best books that I have purchased on the subject of the I-Ching. Its translations are quite extensive and give in-depth interpretations of the hexigrams and changing lines. If you buy this book, be prepared to read its translations with patience. I am currently a newer student of the I-Ching and have to really sit in quiet and prepare for long contemplation of the readings. It is well worth the time and effort. I highly recommend this book, but also purchase a book with less detailed interpretations to augment this incredible piece.

An excellent guide to the I Ching

This book is an outstanding place to begin work with the I Ching. Especially compared with direct translations. I don't know about you, but I'm not familiar enough with Chinese symbolism to understand what "four horses grazing in the meadow; there is no blame" means. Fortunately for those of us similarly afflicted, Carol Anthony and Wilhelm/Baynes have done the hard work for us.
