Book of Sun and Moon: Traditional Perspectives on Divination and Calculation for the Book of Changes (Two-Volume Series)
Translation and commentaries by Stuart Alve Olson.

The books in this two-volume series present the most important tools and information on how to utilize the Book of Changes (I Ching, or Yi Jing). The Book of Sun and Moon, an alternative—though accurate—translation for the title of the Yi Jing, is both a book of divination and calculation.

Volume I contains background historical information and explanations of the Yi Jing’s construction and uses for divination and calculation. Volume II contains the translations of the original Book of Sun and Moon, along with specific correlations for the hexagrams and trigrams for interpretation, as well as Stuart Alve Olson’s commentaries derived from various Chinese and English sources.
