    For the last three days I have been away to my favourite spot by the seaAfter reading “The seeker of well being” I felt a deep inner silence that told me I needed a break; to unite with myself to decide how best to handle the conflicts I have now in my personal and professional lives Now I am back to town all renewed Ready to face the challenges of lifeI find Confucius the best in Chinese Wisdom If you don't have the time to read the whole book read at least the two chapters called The way of Friendship and The way of Ambition They radically changed my way of looking at friendship and ambition; I've been a lot happier since The stuff may sound like common sense but so easy to set aside and move on like a bulldozerAlso what's great about this book is it teaches subtly without putting us down

    This book is not about Confucius This book is an act of terror against the Chinese people This sentimental screed on how to make no impact and influence nobody is done in traditional Chinese style it seeks to destroy the greatness of Confucius by putting him on a pedestalBecause the author Yu Dan LITERALLY chokes the life out of the purple groaning neck of Confucius Yu Dan kills in turn each of Confucius' living spirits through the weapons of distortion emotionalization and superficiality Yu Dan spatters the blood of Confucius on every page of her book A new category of books Books that Kill the Spirit had to be created to properly categorize this piece of crapIf it were to be revealed that the author were a communist zealot it would make sense than the mistaken notion that this book is about Confucius It is about contemporary Chinese culture and Confucius is just a pretext for her passive and futile anti political uietismFor a great commentary on Confucius himself try Pierre Ryckman's translation of the Analects For a study of happiness that is wise the best book is books 1 and 2 of Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics

    Slim simple and yet so insightful Most people are familiar with moral and natural principles that seems so logical And though people know they should live to the full due to our own natural imperfection and lack of brevity in facing life their spirit seems to have extinguished through the years and life becomes a mere existence In this practical little book Yu Dan describes the key points from Chinese greatest thinker Confucius' Analects that helps to understand how to reach that high state of mind Analects is a note made by his disciples from their master's lectures for Confucius himself abstained from writing a book

    IF the Lady author intended to make us familiar with Confucius's thinking and advice about how to be a better human being applied to 21st century humanity I think she got it wrongIt is interesting to get acuainted with HOW Confucius thought about the many many things of lifethey sound good but not believable AndI don't think that present day Chinese give a dam about his advices otherwise they'll be less pugnacious and thoughtfulOR this is not the case


  5. Melita Melita says:

    It gets boring and draining in the middle But I still like it because Yu Dan writes clearly and the stories included was pretty profound uite inspiring I'd say You don't digest it in a day Better let it be absorbed by your mind and then continue again It's too much in one sitting

    Wonderful and inspiring 3


  7. Jenniver Jenniver says:

    A simple to understand book of anecdotes compiled and explained by Yu DanSupported by tales from China and online stories Yu Dan elaborates on some of the 'simple truths' offered by Confucius' teachings and Way of life Divided into six chapters this book is a call for introspection and aims to provide an insight on the ways in which we can build a calm steadfast and confident heart with an open attitude and positive outlook As the character we possess will conseuently have a ripple effect on our ambitions interpersonal relationships and contributions to society it is advised that we invest time in focusing on listening understanding and developing our inner self instead of being caught up with material gainslosses Ultimately the advocated goal in life is to achieve an optimal balance between learning and thinking; listening and speaking; letting go and holding on; pursuing and holding back


  8. Cathy Ferringo Cathy Ferringo says:

    I really wanted to love this book I feel that I learn a lot from Confucius' teachings and hoped that this book would give me further insight and learningThe book had great potential with great Confucious uotes but fell flat on the wisdom for today's world part For a few reasons I don't think it's relevant to the western world I think it was written for how the author wanted people to think not as a companion book for things to think on The book is less spiritual and academic than I hoped it to be


  9. Tri Quach Tri Quach says:

    A start to study Confucianism Based on her perspectives Yu Dan well explained about the main idea of Confucius' Teachings which she believed that it would benefit for even modern day practiceCome from a background of Vietnam which have been deeply influenced by Chinese cultures and specifically Confucianism I found that the concepts of Confucianism is so familiar to me and it has been there in Vietnamese cultures for a very long timeWill read about Confucius and Confucianism if having chances in the future


  10. Jordan Womersley Jordan Womersley says:
