Still used today, the Yijing has been used as a book of divination for more than three thousand years in China. This book draws on the wisdom of leadership within the framework of the Yijing to indicate how a leader should act in different situations. Critical analysis of the 64 hexagrams, the first of its kind, offers lucid explanations of the hexagram statements. Reinterpreted in a logical and scientific manner, this Chinese classic provides modern leaders with food for thought.
