Readers the world over say that the marvelous story of A Tale of the I Ching opens the I Ching to them as never before.
"Of all the stories you have heard of the great sage ruler, even though they were magnified a hundred times, none can do him the honor he deserves. Of all people, he is the most worthy, the most honorable, and the wisest. The wisdom of the world flows through him like a sparkling brook through the forest. When he speaks, time seems to cease." —from A Tale Of the I Ching
