Informative and Beautiful!

:
First I must say I am glad this developer has begun offering apps at a more reasonable price, because I have been eyeing their products for awhile but didn’t want to spring $4 for an unfamiliar book on China. When I saw this one I grabbed it immediately, and was not disappointed.

This is a book about Confucius’ life and influence, and is presented in a highly attractive and easy to use interface. It is loaded with elegant illustrations consisting of both ancient Chinese artwork and excellent photography. It was a pleasure to read through, which I did in about 2 days.

Note that this app does not contain the works of Confucius, but discusses him from a historical perspective. The writing is lively and shows passion for its subject. As you would expect from a product from China, the English contains some usage, spelling, and punctuation errors, but actually they are few and not too distracting.

This book is an excellent introduction to Confucius, and is much more readable than some of the printed introductions to “Analects” that I have tried to slog through. In my opinion, Westerners should learn some Eastern culture by studying Confucius rather than the inexplicably popular Tao Te Ching. This app would be a nice way to get started.

(Hint to developer: How about an app of the Analects themselves with beautiful illustrations like this? That would be great!)

5/5 stars

Worth it

:
I almost bought most of the books from this developer. The price is pretty high, however, considering that they might need to pay royalty to the original publisher, and not so many people will actually to pay on such books, and that they are offering China content in English and in a pretty decent way, i think the books worth the price.
