The mix of philosophy , stories of old masters, and his personal practice is educational and entertaining. It is the kind of book that reads fast, yet is informative enough to read again for wisdom and just for fun.
In a world where many times money is spent and followed by disappointment , this is not the case.
There are 7 Chapters in this book:
1. The Practical Daoism of Cook Ding
2. Philosophy Practiced
3. The No Named Daoist
4. The Master Mover
5. Solo Training in Martial Arts
7. Austere Training
Each Chapter are like little Stories within stories that each can stand on their own that also connect back to this author's main concept and title of this book. My two favorite Chapters were "Philosophy Practiced" and "The No Named Doaist" as they really make some good points that are always well worth revisiting.
All in all it's a good book and hence the 4 stars rating. It's a pretty quick read and covers a lot of interesting topic. So, to sum it up... simply said "An enjoyable read"
Its tone reminded me of an old quote attributed to Stewart Brand: "On the one hand information wants to be expensive, because it's so valuable. The right information in the right place just changes your life. On the other hand, information wants to be free...." Cook Ding's Kitchen satisfies, I think, both aspects of that idea: data with implications that can change your life, and offered generously, costing only a little attention from the reader.
To paraphrase Vince Lombardi aim for perfection and you may get excellence.Reading this book will teach you that becoming a master of the little things will lead to mastering bigger things in your business and life.
Enjoyed it and have no hesitation in recomening it.
