The narrative is hard to keep up with, and the many typos and misspellings made it annoying at times. But if you are studying ancient Chinese history, it is worth reading. It would go along and seem rather dull, but then something interesting would happen. I understand why this was one of the Confucian classics. I did have a deeper understanding and feel for those very early dynasties. The star chart referred to by James Legge is not in the book, but can be found on the internet. You can find a copy of this book online, and the star chart is in that version. I enjoyed looking at the night sky of 2300 BC during the different seasons of the year.
