The Tao of Yao: Insights from Basketball's Brightest Big Man and 9 OF 1: A Window to the World
Please join us at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, February 14 to meet the Author, Oliver Chin. Chin set his graphic novel, 9 0f 1 in Fremont after 9/11. The epigraph is a quotation from Lao Tzu stating that "a great nation receives all that flows into it." His new book, The Tao of Yao, received the following praise from bestselling author Iris Chang:
"Oliver Chin uses the modern phenomenon of Yao Ming to illustrate the ancient wisdom of Taoism and Sun Tzu's The Art of War. By deftly bridging the cultures of East and West and by drawing inspiration from sports heroes, warriors, and philosophers over thousands of years of history, The Tao of Yao transcends both time and space, highlighting universal principles of leadership essential to victory."
