Is there anything you would change about this book?
The history of Chinese philosophy is no doubt interesting and I enjoyed learning about these thinkers. But the book falls far short of the mark when it comes to practical applications for contemporary life. In addition, I found it deeply strange the amount of times dating strategies are mentioned; the author even addresses "The System"and "The Rules".
What could Edward Slingerland have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Made the book a more even split between philosophy and practical advice.
What does Marc Cashman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He reads with a sense of humor that made the long summaries of history more enjoyable.
Do you think Trying Not to Try needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Not really, it just wasn't interesting enough for me to justify reading another book by Slingerland.

Strongly resonated with me, and have me a glimpse into Chinese philosophy and worldview. Gave me permission to relax more and let things just happen.
