In 'Chinese Fables and Wisdom' Tom Te-Wu Ma extends the Chinese tradition of storytelling to the western world. The book is a collection of dozens of timeless stories from one of the most enduring cultures in history, many never before translated into English.
Each story contains a special kind of advice. Fables such as "The Donkey and the Tiger", " The Snipe and the Clam" and "The Twin Goddesses of Fortune and Misery" are unadulterated, everyday stories that offer ancient solutions to complex modern problems.
Too often we overlook simple solutions. The key to the Chinese's longevity has been their ability to unearth pearls of wisdom embedded in the ordinary occurrences of life. In the spirit of his ancestors Tom Te-Wu Ma wrote 'Chinese Fables and Wisdom' to provide us with clear stories, translated into English and encrusted with the jewels of knowledge.
