Zhang Xuan traverses into a foreign world and becomes an honorable teacher. A mysterious library appears in his mind. As long as it is something he has seen, regardless of whether it is a human or an object, a book on its weakness would be automatically compiled. Thus, he became formidable.

“Emperor Haotian, why don’t you like to wear underwear? To think that you’re still an emperor, can you pay more attention to your image?”

“Fairy Linglong, if you continue to suffer from insomnia, you can always look for me. I have a way with lullabies!”

“You as well, Qiankun Demon Lord, can you cut down on the garlic? Do you want to stink me to death?”

This is an incredible story about the heritage between teacher and students, cultivating and guiding the world’s strongest experts.

Interesting and funny story, with a male lead who isn't constantly drooling over the beautiful women.

The various enemies/mini-antagonists are my favorite point. Their decisions and attitudes may put them in opposition to the main character, but they aren't *complete* idiots. It doesn't take being beaten down continuously for most of them to realize they might be in a bad situation now. Their despicable levels are low- to mid-ranged, which makes them more believable than the over-the-top stuff we see in a lot of cultivation stories. (The recurring ones... more>> are obviously slower on the uptake.)

Some of the premises are strange, like the master teacher thing. But I try to interpret that stuff as "That's how the novel's world is." Definitely worth a try. <<less

Absolutely love this story. I'll probably get tired of it though since it's the same formula, but for now I'm happy with what there is. Only complaint I have is that it takes awhile for something to resolve.

From chapters 1-85 only 2-3 days have passed. The content from those few days are really fun to read though.

Definitely recommend. 5 stars.

I have read ahead till c132.

It's very entertaining till now, and there are awesome "Face slapping" scenes. But, I don't like the direction book is going:

1. Whole story is "modelled" around Face-slapping, which though may feel good initially, really makes the story very silly. Till now I just see events to show how great "MC" is. These kind of stories dont hold my interest very long.

2. MC can learn anything at click of button (like NEO did in Matrix). My favourite part in Xianxia is where MC spends countless efforts... more>> to learn and achieve a skill. Here power and skill is gained like in western novels - u gain power immediately, without any effort.

Author seems to be writing for the subscriptions and I don't see long term coherent plot here. Also, MC has started getting "Super arrogant", which I absolutely despise. <<less

Very funny so far, and if you like History's Number 1 Founder you will probably like this. The MC is a guy that is reincarnated into a body of a worst teacher in some academy for cultivation and gets some kind of heavenly ability in his mind that allows him to see any and all weaknesses one has in their cultivation technique or body etc. So far (ch.6) the story is focused on him recruiting student in a very funny manner so it's entertaining and if you like that kind... more>> of stuff I recommend this novel.


So I caught up to the raws (235) and the story just gets better. I am gonna spoil few interesting thing the MC does so if you don't mind being slightly spoiled and want to know what to expect read this


So the story focuses on the MC's OPnes and is based on MC impressing and face smacking. The MC has a very OP ability, he can flip through a whole library of books and have it all copy and pasted in his "mind" library and it pretty much becomes his knowledge (though he doesn't know it, whenever someone asks the question he knows the answer immediately and later he has an ability to learn it all instantly). So he goes to his school library for cultivation that only teachers can access, copies all books, removes the flaws and creates the perfect OP technique for himself so he goes through level of cultivation in mater of minutes.

The only reason he doesn't just become the god in one week is because he needs like (for example) 1000 seven level flawed cultivation manuals to create one perfect seven level manual and he doesn't have the manuals for the higher levels.

The other good thing is his relationship with his students and other OP people. I mean he bends his back for the 5 students he has and spends a lots of money to unlock their potential and the students really love and respect their master.

Also there are few cliche "I am a rich young master, how dare you trash exist" kind of characters but they appear at the beginning and some of them even become good guys and redeemable. And the novel is VERY funny (in my opinion)

Only read up to c8 so far and I'm already addicted! The story is fresh and fun, taking the perspective of a teacher rather than a typical MC transmigration. A character like this would be the side character in most stories, but here he takes center stage! I'm already interested in seeing his interactions with his fledging crop of students and how they'll progress the plot. The best part is how chill he is while his students do all the heavy lifting/training. Looking forward to more chapters soon!

EDIT: Read up... more>> to c80 in the raws and I am in love with this story. None of the people on the summary have shown up yet, but I think it's going to be epic when they do. :) <<less

So far what i have to say about it is. Its a good humorous novel with a tons of potential. There isn't a serious purpose for MC to run after yet other than pursuing his career and powering himself up, The ability of MC seems simple in the beginning but its actually really OP. If you are looking for something lighthearted to read then this is as good as u can find.

I am already caught up to raw (231st chapter at the time i was reviewing it). And for... more>> me its a 5 star so far. <<less

As of now I'm really hooked up with this novel. This novel just show that shamelessness is really a good spice for a comedy novel. Although the number of chapters are still few you can already see the ability of the author here 'cause he already have the element to make you interested on reading his works.

Although the chapters are very few, it has gotten me hooked with it's first 13 chapters. The problem is, we'll never know if it'll stop becoming interesting as the chapters goes on, as it's still too early to judge if it the novel is a good read or not. He still hasn't started teaching his students yet.

Update: This is starting to follow the standard xianxia trope and it's STALLING HARD, 3-5 chapters for a small event to finish. Really close to dropping the novel, too much bullshit and annoying antagonist... more>> with powerful backgrounds that always break rules of their own bets and would always try to kick the mc out of the school in every fucking chapter. <<less

I actually like this novel, there tends to be some useless chatter/monologues from time to time but the story is still pretty enjoyable.

The ability he gets happens to be pretty unique in my opinion and all though it's pretty easy to make him OP I think that's where we will have to truly rate the quality of the story. I want to see how he uses his ability to affect his students and the ppl around him and hopefully not just hide away somewhere get stronger then beat everyone... more>> up.. That's annoying! <<less

This would easily be 5 stars without the padding and long-windedness. I will qualify this statement, however, by noting that I started reading the Chinese raws after chapter 26. That may make me less forgiving of the padding because I read slower in Chinese, and because Chinese metaphors seem fresher to me when expressed in English.

At some point of time, I started skipping over lines. Although I remain entertained by knowing how the face-slapping happened and what it led to, it became tiresome to read many lines of elaboration... more>> on just how shocked or irritated someone is. For example, chapter 213 is basically about an antagonist preparing to see the "no-name" protagonist get humiliated at an event but then he is shocked at the fact that famous people are actually attending the event. I just want the plot to go on already and get to the face-slapping.

If you can forgive or skip the padding, this is definitely worth reading up to the latest raw chapters. <<less

Funny as heck — Don't expect anything else!

First, you must temper your expectations. This isn't the tale of a man and his journey to the top, standing above thousands through martial might. Instead this is the story of a teacher with a peculiar cheat which allows him to see through flaws, among other things about the target.

He uses this on his path to become the darn best teacher ever. Expect a tale of repeated face smacking, weird misunderstandings, and people doing anything they can to preserve face.

There are... more>> probably tons of plotholes, just come into this with a light heart, open your mind, end enjoy the comedy. <<less

I'm still not sure what to expect from this story. It feels a little bland, and it seems to reuse quite a lot of ideas from other novels. His skill which should have been just a mediocre one, evolved to the rank of deus ex machina in just two chapters

... more>>

he advances two realms in a few hours


The protagonist is created by the author following the hidden lazy genius matrix. He is capable to stand in the center of attention thanks to his wits, and attracts enemies faster than a dump attracts flies. The fact that he comes from another world is completely ignored as he is suddenly capable in chapter 23 to


catch a blade using two fingers


I understand that this type of protagonist has become attractive because it give some sort of fulfillment to the reader seeing how the protagonist is capable instead of being dense. But creating one without using a backstory is .. boring. Its hard to believe that a former high school student that was a librarian is capable of adapting to a world where killing someone is acceptable as long as you have status. For now, I hope that by some miracle his students will not become the generic 'power rangers'. <<less

It's really funny. Some of the side characters are huge narcissists and that just leads to hilarious scenarios.

Warning: The MC is dense which often leads to ridiculous misunderstandings. You'll either find it funny or find it really annoying.Proceed at your own risk. The translator is doing a really good job with the updates.

Rating: 4.7/5

It's very funny. Like seriously (especially if you understand Mandarin because of the words used). Not to say you can't enjoy this novel without knowing Mandarin, it's just I feel some jokes are difficult to translate (since I'm far with the RAWS). I'm a difficult reader as I am the type to stop half way if it no longer peaks my interest, but I doubt I will be bored with novel anytime soon.

Now about the MC, he is the knowledge OP type, shameless and slightly arrogant. He will do... more>> anything to obtain his goals. There are a lot of face slapping scene like in most Xianxia and is very entertaining to read. He always uses the weirdest way (According to the book's common sense) to do most of the stuff and the reaction from the other characters are also very entertaining.

As far as I can tell, the story evolves with jokes and face slapping scenes but, the main plot has yet to be shown. Only clues and such with 200c so far. I can say it's still early to tell if this is a good novel but I have it 5 stars because it really entertained me as I was reading it. <<less

Pretty hilarious. The main character is extremely shameless and uses misunderstandings to his advantage. A downside is that the plot moves slowly, going over details that may seem redundant, and the chapters become a bit shorter later on which makes it all the worse.

By the end of volume 1, you will see:
... more>>

An elder accusing him for the previous owner of his body's mistakes and track record, but the main character will sway the crowd against the elder by appearing magnanimous and indifferent to worldly ridicule, while making the elder seem narrow-minded and leading the crowd to believe that the elder had falsified his test scores by making them 0 (while in fact the previous owner of his body was an idiot and actually did score the 0)

The MC is totally thick skinned and acts aloof as he was not the original owner of the body he's in. Really love the novel and interested in how it will proceed.

... more>>

The MC transmigrates into the body of someone who scored a Zero in Teacher Qualification Exam and almost drove a student to madness due to his instructions in Cultivation. He gets a Library of sorts which is basically a cheat that allows him to learn the weaknesses of the people he observes.

He needs to recruit a student lest he be expelled and gets one by cheating her. Due to a challenge with another teacher , he is able to improve the strength of another student's attack using his ability getting him as student as well. He also gets another student who gets horny as she cultivates whose faults he identifies using the ability.(She came to find a cure for the condition).

Gahaha, this is amazing!

5 stars, no doubt about it. Reminds me a lot of History's Strongest Teacher or something, this one is much more funny... and this is not because I don't remember a single thing about History's Strongest Teacher anymore, no.... I hope the title is correct.

Well anyway, this is pretty about in the characters and world building parts. Firstly, the characters, are all almost lovable. I mean come on, we can never really treat the antagonists seriously. I love how the MC just offends people left and right,... more>> whether they be hostile to him or not, albeit unintentionally XD. The best part about the novel, I guess, is just the level of shamelessness almost everybody has XD. Especially the MC. I really love the way he reacts to the challenges of other people. Talk about having a brain for an MC, am I right?.... Or not, I mean he doesn't really get that he's super OP yet. Well anyway, like I said, everyone's funny. I'm sure everyone had mood swings at least once after meeting the MC.

The world building, although not really the best, at least it's good. I mean, I've been reading too many jap novels lately, my head kinda hurts now....

I guess this is it for, I hope we get to see more. I really love it, comedy is really really good, reminds me a lot of A Thought Through Eternity.... Oh, right, they changed the name.

Well anyway, Peace out. <<less

I wanted to like this novel.

I mean I really did and I do kind of like it. the concept is solid enough. but the elephant in the room with this series is how the cheat in this world basically kills anything the MC achieves as null and void. he basically got a library that if he sees someone do a single martial art. it complies a complete history of the person alongside what they practise. what level they are at and all of their flaws. so ANYtime the MC is... more>> being a teacher he's just reading what's in this Deus ex machina library said about the person. that and this suffers from standard set up of, HEY YOU I BET YOU CAN'T DO THE THING. *2 minutes later*

HOW DID HE DO THE THING TWICE AS WELL AS ME. HE's CHEATING. this happens 3 times by the way.

To conclude: this is about a guy pretending to be a wise sage of a teacher that just has a cheat sheet <<less

So far so good. The translation is good and the novel itself is awesome. This novel is a light read. I like it that way because i don't have to think about the injustice in the world, any moral issues or deep philosophy. I just have a pleasant time reading it. The comedic scenes are well written. MC's shamelessness has the potential to be one of the top. The downside is that I wish I had waited for more chapters before reading it.

MC is too OP, so he gets no credible threats or opponents.

He gets a cheat power that is extremely similar to the one in Warlock of the Magus World, but whereas in the later it is properly hindered by the extreme secretiveness of Magi, in this novel all the knowledge is far too readily available - which weakens the plot and kills any tension. All the "challenges" end up as one-sided curb-stomp battles, so there's not that much reason for the MC to even participate in them.

The one saving... more>> grace (and the strongest point) of this novel is Comedy, as MC uses absurd and illogical (to others) solutions to deal with problems.

The story abuses the same formula too much - "MC wants to do X, realizes that he needs qualification Y, instantly learns all the available books and astonishes everyone by successfully breaking all records in the trial". <<less

Library of Heaven's Path is an excellent story that's near the top of its genre - face-slapping. Its plot is really well written and even though you kind of know what is going to happen, but you can't help but anticipate what's going to happen next.

The MC is thick-skinned, arrogant sometimes even, but I think there's a certain charm to smug protagonist as long as they don't push it too far. At the very least, I find it better than a weak-willed protagonist who allows himself to be pushed... more>> around by the rest of the world. The MC is also kind of like a genius who does everything others find hard to easily, so you can't expect him to grind up slowly. After all, that's the kind of book it is. However, this doesn't really mean he doesn't work hard. Time progresses really slowly in the book and he really does a lot within that short period of time everyday.

Next, it does have the idea of the relationship of teacher and student, but it doesn't focus heavily on it. However, the author has said that the next arc will focus on it (that's 300 by the way.)

Just like many has said, it's not a deep novel and rather, it is more like something you read after a tiring day to refresh yourself.

It has potential, and probably will continue to interest me for the next hundred chapters or so. There's a limit to face-slapping genre and eventually things may get repetitive and boring, but up to this point, it is a 5 stars for me. <<less
