For over 3,000 years, the Chinese have placed great value on the I Ching, turning to it for guidance and insight regarding past, present, and future events. For over a decade, researcher Robert Benson worked towards making the English text of this book easier to understand and appreciate. The result is an I Ching that stands alone, providing answers for anyone facing a time of personal crisis.

This version can be useful if you use it as a cross check with more traditional publications.
Benson facilitated old yin and old yang line readings such that the reader can interpret the extreme me
of each change from a transitional hexagram perspective Ala Mondo Sector's methodology.
Sector's work should be csrefully considered vis a vis
Stephen Kartcher's steps of change.
These two methods are not mutually exclusive since the future potentials are open questions with respect to the eternal now.
I give Benson 3 stars but it can be a 4 star addition for a serious yi Jing student.
