Format: Hardcover
His translation of the I Ching is hardly useful in daily practice, but his abundant commentary helps you in understanding the I Ching. His commentary contains portions of a long Confucianist tradition which was the standard for centuries. Only that makes this book a must.

This book is anything but impressive. Not a tome for the beginner.
Is nothing more than an explanation of the history of I Ching. No new interpretation of the symbolism of this ancient oracle can be gleaned from this text.
Better look elsewhere for guidance and understanding

If what you want is only to find out what tomorrow will bring, then do not waste Mr.Legge time. Although his translation style may not appeal to many, his commentaries are still one of the best on the I Ching.

Format: Hardcover
I was interested in this version of the I Ching because it was the first major translation into English. It is not as detailed as some of the other versions that are out there, but I like this translation because it another, older, perspective on the I Ching. There are some aspects on the book that I felt were covered in this version, that weren't covered as much in others. I also like this book because I admired James Legge for being the first one to write a complete translation of the I Ching in English.
