5.0 out of 5 stars Yarrow sticks and probability. . ., October 21, 2007
By 
This review is from: The I Ching: The Book of Changes and How to Use It (Paperback)
Wu Wei appeals to me so much because he is an artist and values learning that comes through the hands. This book includes one of the few explanations I've found for why the yarrow stick method produces a mathematically different "chance" result from the coin toss method. I was inspired enough to go out and harvest my own wild yarrow and cut it into sticks. This ancient Chinese plant actually grows in Maine! Wu Wei's explanation of how to use the sticks is easy to understand and quickly learned. The yarrow stick method produces a kind of indwelling that I have not experienced with coin tossing. It has an earthiness to it that is beautifully complimented by Wu Wei's text.

The author uses a pseudonym "wu wei" that is not to be confused with the original "Wei Wu Wei" author who died in the 1980's. His was also a pseudonym but his writings are very well known and respected. This author has only very recent publications and all under Power Press, as far as I can tell. I do not trust the simplified version presented here and I have a problem with the use of a similar pseudonym as the earlier author Wei wu Wei.
