The words 'Tong Sing' mean 'know everything book'. No wonder the traditional Chinese almanac contains information on everything from astrology to herbal remedies, Taoist philosophy to the interpretation of dreams. Drawing his inspiration from this centuries-old work, but using his own research and adapting the contents to appeal to a modern audience, Charles Windridge has compiled a fully updated book that will answer every question the reader can ask about the ancient Chinese way of life. Whether you want to know the best time to conceive a child, understand more about Confucianism or prepare your own dim sum, Tong Sing can tell you how.
