    1. This lecture series just wets your appetite for Eastern Philosophy and is by no means complete. It is nevertheless still very good, informative and worth-while. Don't be disappointed if all your questions are not addressed as there is only so much you can expect form lectures. I highly recommend it for those who want to understand Eastern thinking better with the understanding that it is more or less just an introduction to the subject rather than a complete guide.

    2. It is a great synthesis of Chinese philosophy since its origins. Of course you won't find deep analysis nor extensive discussion. But if you're looking for a vey good way of understanding and introducing yourself to this discipline this is a great book to start with.

    3. Not very thorough. It was good to pass the time while biking. Considering I knew nothing about Taoism before this, so I found some parts quite interesting. It jumps very abruptly from the second to the nineteenth century.

    4. I really enjoyed listening to this basic overview of Chinese philosophy. I got it in order to learn more about Confucianism, and I was not disappointed.

    5. Keep in mind - it is a very basic and short introduction to an extremely complicated topic. References to western philosophy makes it easy to understand the differences.
