Age of the child I gave this to:. Hours of Play:. May 31, - Published on Amazon. Thick Face, Black Heart is a very profound and well-written book. Now that I have read it from cover to cover, I can say that it gave me a deeper understanding of the world in many senses.
After reading this book, I can say that I do see the spiritual within the mundane. However, the biggest problem with this book is that you get what she is saying or you don't. For those who don't understand Ms. Chu's message, the aphorisms that she draws from different religions might seem convoluted, the main points in one chapter will seem oxymoronic compared to another chapter, and even her anecdotes will seem superfluous. It's not an easy book to understand.
It took me at least five attempts alone. Another personal gripe with the book is that she seemed to write this book for a more sociopathic audience. While she does emphasize the needs for ethics in all of our dealings, she provides a lot more examples of how those without ethics tend to win more on life. It's a pretty hard thing to swallow if you don't want to do away with your sense of integrity, which in my experience is very important for success.
However, and she does emphasize this, that what she wrote in the book is very universal and you can even find aspects of "Thick Face, Black Heart" from any other spiritual and philosophical works, even if it lacks that label. If somehow Ms. February 19, - Published on Amazon. This is a rare and honest book, probably not for the light of heart or those retreating from reality.
The principles covered within deal with a wide range of modern personal issues, as well as being applicable to business.
It is a modern derivative of a Chinese warrior tenet, a philosophy dangerous to the Communist regime and, quite possibly, to corrupt pseudo-democracy ; I was surprised and thrilled that it made its way to the Western market. It should be a reference in every military academy, in every dojo or kwoon, as well as in business courses. Personally, over 15 years after buying it the first time, I still think it good enough to purchase again; it's that valuable to me. September 20, - Published on Amazon.
