    ..................

    Indeed, ZWDS is deep and profound subject.

    In my opinion, this book is good not only for people who can read chinese but + completely new to ZWDS + who don't even own 1 ZWDS book at home.

    This book is available again now at Popular bookshop @ Bras Basah!

    Only suitable for those who haven't own 1 chinese Ziwei book yet. Those who have been buying chinese Ziwei books over the years may skip this as this is merely a compilation of past books' core contents.

    Well, I don't consider this a "gem" but this is quite a good book for novices.

    ..................

    What I heard is that overseas suppliers only give to our local bookshops what they cannot sell - ie; unpopular, common, "fairly good" books.

    The real "gems" which are popular or excellent in content, the overseas supplier/bookshops they will sell themselves in their own country. Really selfish behaviour. Only once in a blue moon, 1 or 2 "gems" will appear. Or have to special order but not guaranteed to get.

    One bookshop staff told me CM books are generally "unpopular". I told him back, because they kept on ordering the common books which nobody wants or already owned.

    Bookshops keep restocking old books that nobody wants or already got, then they complain low sales and "ailing retail industry". No surprise if later Popular and Kino also close down.

    Amituofo....

    ..................

    Do you believe me when I say that upon picking up a book and within 5 minutes of browsing, I can tell whether the book is a "gem", "quite good" or "trash"?

    That's why only a few copies get to Singapore/Malaysia initially (during launch), because they haven't know yet. After some time, they will know which books are "gems" not to ship overseas to sell (via readers' response). That's why you don't see "secret book" anymore (at physical stores), you don't see Liu Yao Tou Xi series anymore (at physical stores), you don't see this modern edition of Master Ghost Valley anymore (at physical stores)! (*You can special order online but not guaranteed to get it.)

    I usually don't buy these celebrity masters' books but they're interesting to browse.

    ...............

    Earlier on, I was referring to brick-and-mortar bookshops' stocks. How's the physical situation over at Malaysia?

    Online stores may still have some stocks but not for all titles. edit: Try searching for this out-of-print book "大六壬通鉴". If you can find it anywhere, do yourself the favour buy it immediately.

    edit2: Not "it", it's in 3 parts. So 3 books.

    "Only 1 left in stock" - anybody who wants better get it ASAP! Those in Singapore can borrow it from library.

    Glad to see so many members benefiting from my recommendations, and at great discounts + savings too.


    edit: Hope to browse more books in brick-and-mortar shops to recommend to members! ;D
