    2. I, like many people, had heard the name Confucius many times—but didn't really know a great deal about him. I went to my local Barnes & Noble with the aim of finding a good book that would educate me further. Upon looking through the shelves there were surprisingly few books that I could find, and the customer service lady in the store also had trouble locating them. Eventually, I was confronted with a choice of three or four books, including the Analects. I chose this one.The book is well [...]

    3. Meher McArthur's Confucius is not going to reveal any new earth-shattering details about the ancient sage's life, but it's a fine introduction to his biographical history. McArthur takes the middle road, retelling the story of Confucius as popularly conceptualized today, with footnotes added to let the reader know when certain narratives are disputed by historians (and possible alternative narratives when appropriate). When dealing with the historical facts about a figure that has become more my [...]

    4. Confucius has always been a mythical figure and this book accentuate the teaching of Confucius that could be described as rigid. Confuciunism is highly respected but the practice of becoming a noble man may be in the gray zone. Writing about Confucius may not be an easy task especially when the accent and meaning of chinese words may not be reflected well in other language. This is just a history book bored with facts and dates.

    5. -All of east Asia calls him father.-Spoke in hard truths and worshipped by emperors.-One of the first espousers/expounders of the Golden Rule.-Banned by Mao because of his political philosophy.The Confucian philosophy was one of the few that survived out of the selection of hundreds in Ancient China. Mostly law-focused, Confucianism emphasized Li and Ren, or Rites and Humaneness. It also promotes the Junzi (morally good person or Gentleman) who acts in harmony with others but does not seek to be [...]

    7. This was a very interesting book to actually get to know something about the man called Confucius. However, the author states that there is extremely little written documentation on the man and his teachings other than what was written about him by his students many years after the events.So, with this in mind, I'm surprised the author was able to create an entire book about Confucius, and it did drag somewhat.

    8. Excellent biography which explains Confucius's teachings as well as his life story. Indeed, it is honest enough to say when we don't know something and to discuss many of the myths about the man. We also get to know about his students, how his views have been used and abused over the centuries and where his legacy is now.

    9. While this was well written, it really didn't hold my interest. It's hard to write a biography when you basing the information on second, third, fourth, etc generation information.
