Confucius



My sister-in-law very kindly got me almost every book on my Christmas wishlist last year (I was only expecting 1 book) and I am still getting through the lot. One of the ones I had asked for was the Art of War by Sun Tzu. I figured I should be reconnecting with my heritage and some wisdom wouldn't be wasted.

What came as a surprise was the translator's references and comparisons to Confucius's work. Both works are completely different, yet are the deepest influences and perhaps the best reflections of the Chinese culture and psyche - even after so many centuries.
