    Confucius eventually returned to Lu around B.C.E. For several years after his return he does not appear to have accepted a governmental position. Instead it appears he spent most of his time studying and teaching, gathering a large number of students around him.   The book is a collection of Confucius's wisdom compiled together by his disciples. These teachings are still relevant as self-knowledge and pursuit of virtue are ageless themes. Now about the quality of the book. This book is awfully produced to say the least.

After predicting the future of ritual in a hundred generations in the p enultimate chapter, Confucius criticizes a serious violation of it in the final one.
