This is probably the most user-friendly version of the ancient Chinese book of changes. The keys to understanding the 64 hexagrams ("gua") are the first two, Initiating (all yang) and Responding (all yin), according to Confucius.

A second translator provides other shades of meaning that were in the original. "The Classic of Changes," by Richard John Lynn is a wonderful complement to Master Huang's very helpful translation. Also good are John Blofeld's, or the Wilhelm/Baynes version.
