This is a book of adages written in essay form, mostly dealing with the proper conduct of one’s life. Using plenty of quotations and stylish phrasing, its elegant observations explain profound truths in simple terms and provide much food for thought. In choosing the title of his book, the author explained, ‘Talent, wisdom and self-improvement can only be attained through a process of rigorous cultivation’ – hence the stress on tending the roots. Pinyin annotations and notes on the original text and illustrations are given. With b&w illustrations.
