"Ching's impressive book does us two important favors. First, we now have an invaluable one-volume English language guide to the major lineaments of Zhu Xi's philosophy. Second, although the question Zhu raises may no longer be those that most of us wake up to every morning, and toss in bed to solve most nights, they are not irrelevant questions that concerned only the fusty and priggish few. Ching reminds us that it never hurts to contemplate and pursue the transcendent through gritty human experiences and vulnerabilities, as Zhu Xi did." --Book Reviews China
