BODY FORTUNES 
Peter Shen with Joyce Wilson 
The Chinese art of body reading is a key to self-appreciation, revealing your physical capacities, hidden strengths and weaknesses.  According to ancient wisdom, the body is the meeting place between heaven and earth, sharing with the universe the harmony or disharmony of the cosmic energies - the positive, active, masculine yang and the receptive, passive, feminine yin.  These energies flow through the body along certain lines of force.

CHINESE NAMES 
Russell Jones 
Chinese Names is in the must-read category.  It is a compilation of the latest work on the meanings of every Chinese Surname and common personal name.  It is difficult to generalize the application of the names because the world's Chinese population is made up of diverse customs and cultures blended with local traditions and idiosyncrasies so peculiar to the homelands which they have adopted.  But the Chinese are conservative in nature and beneath the changes can be found many undercurrents of customs which persist and if they can be identified, will repay the time devoted to their study.

THE TAOIST BODY 
Kilstofer Schipper 
The ancient system of thought known as Taoism remains today the least well known of the world's great religions and one of the most inaccessible wellsprings of Chinese culture.  This is largely because Western thought, despite the unifying insights of recent science, clings to the notoion of the separation of matter and spirit, body and soul.  Departing from those who understand Taoism solely as a religious doctrine, the author argues for its inseparability from many traditional practices of everyday life in China.
