Product Description

Review

"When this book was first published in 1980, I was convinced that no one could add to the "monumental commentary of Richard Wilhelm... I was wrong. Ms. Anthony has made a genuine contribution to our understanding and use of the oracle." -- Harry Goldgar, New Orleans Times Picayune

Format: Paperback
This is a truly magnificent work written by a very wise lady. If you are at all interested in developing yourself using the Wilhelm\Baynes edition of the I Ching you will find this book indispensible. It is astoundingly insightful and must be regarded as a major achievement along with her other top book "The Philosophy of the I Ching". I read both of these daily. Many many thanks.

Carol Anthony's "Guide To The I Ching" is a precious gem. There is a thrillingly egoless quality in her congruent guidance that rings gently with echoes of the 12 Step Program and other distillations of ancient wisdom teachings. Her interpretation and guidance for practical ways to use the wisdom contained in the 64 hexagrams and their changing lines shows us a roadmap to and of our personal high road. This map shows us how to use the I Ching to access and participate with the wise ones before us in this ageless, ever changing repository of spiritual wisdom and guidance to find, walk and finally to lead The Way.

Format: Paperback
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.

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.

Format: Paperback
Ms. Anthony has obviously used the I Ching in her life and in this book shares its' usefulness, and her love for, and insight into, the meanings. Also,she uses the Wilhelm/Baynes translation with which so many of us are familiar and writes this as a "guide" to the use of that. Her paraphrases are exquisite in their ability to simplify for us, the more literate translations.

I read Carol Anthony's book with great interest and enthusiasm! I really became one of her admireers after reading this book - I use the guide as often as time permits. She has managed to write wonderfully about a very complex and interesting topic.

Both my wife and my daughter have used this book for many years to sort out the confusion life often presents us with. I was curious about it and looked for another book that wouldn't be exactly the same as theirs. This one is the best!
