The original Tong Sing, or 'Know Everything Book', is a Chinese almanac that has been published annually for at least 1200 years, and perhaps since 2250 BCE. Inspired by this ancient text, Windridge has compiled a book that aspires to answer every question the reader might care to ask about oriental philosophy, astrology, folklore, medicine and food. The result is a riveting repository of information on everything from astrology to acupuncture, emperors to etiquette, and prophecies to Peking cuisine.
