Review by: sergio faluotico on Oct. 19, 2012 : (no rating)
A numerological approach to the Tai xuan jing. The book is in great need of graphics, particularly one showing all the tetragrams and a table to identify the symbols cast in divination,The book is also in great need of an editor. The writing is messy and becomes heavy reading, dense to understand, Many bold statements with no reference to any source other than saying it is based on a commentary by Fan Wang in the introduction.On top of that a great part of the introduction consists of material blatantly lifted from Michael Nylan's introduction to her 1993 translation. This is unfortunate because another translation of this book is greatly needed. This clearly missed that opportunity,
