Tong Sing: The Chinese Book of Wisdom by Charles Windridge

Every Chinese home has a copy of the original Tong Sing, a traditional almanac that has been published annually for 1200 years and whose origins, some authorities believe, go back thousands of years before that. It is a repository of information on everything from astrology to herbal remedies, Confucius to the interpretation of dreams. The words Tong Sing mean 'Know Everything Book' and possession of a copy is believed to bring the owner good fortune.
