If you ever wondered why it's so hard to excel in life, it may be because you are under-appreciating "going with the flow". Fun and deep at the same time - who knew ancient Chinese thought was so interesting. For followers of rationality and decision theory, Slingerland reaches a very surprising and intriguing conclusion in the latter part of the book. Highly recommended.

A Knowledgeable and Concise philosophical book. Truly opens the eye to Eastern Philosophy and the roots of our primal intuitions. I definitely recommend this book.
