Book cover

顔氏家訓 by Zhitui Yan is a classic piece of Chinese literature that offers a unique perspective on ethics and morality. The book is a collection of moral teachings and advice passed down from generation to generation within the Yan family.

I found the book to be a fascinating insight into ancient Chinese culture and values. The author's writing style is concise and to the point, making the messages easy to understand and apply to one's own life. I also appreciated the emphasis on the importance of family relationships and honoring one's ancestors.

Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone interested in Chinese philosophy and traditional customs. It offers valuable lessons that are still relevant in today's modern society.
