The world has changed dramatically in the 2,500 years since Confucius lifetime, but in many ways we still struggle with his core concern: how to live together with a minimum of conflict.

In What Would Confucius Do?, East Asian teacher and scholar E. N. Berthrong provides a clear guide to how we can apply Confucian tenets to the modern world. Her original interpretation, based on years of studyingThe Analects, focuses on tact, compromise, and a willingness to see the other persons point of view-Confucius three keys to living in harmony. This compendium of Confucian quotations, reflections, and advice-from learning when to speak, to making the most out of being alive-is organized to follow the general path of ones career or life and can be applied to the workplace, the family, or society in general. Bernthrongs ambitious goal, like that of Confucius, is to get everyone to discover and know the true inner satisfaction that can be achieved through living life in a civilized manner as taught by one of historys most popular figures.
