Dust jacket by Gavin L. O'Keefe


A Book of Chinese Wisdom


Now, for the first time, this classic collection by Sinologist Gordon Highsmith is available for modern readers. It contains all of the aphorisms, platitudes, quips, sayings and mottoes you need to survive in this or any world you find yourself in. All of the celestial giants are here: Sun Tzu, Confucius, Lao Tse, et al. There’s also an introduction  by Fender Tucker about Highsmith, the man who made this book possible, a man once sentenced to hang for the murder of his wife. Cult-author Harry Keeler thought so much of this book that he featured it as the deus ex machina in no fewer than six of his webwork novels.
