As a native Chinese speaker, Master Huang has imbued this I Ching with an accuracy and authenticity not achieved in other English translations. He also returns to prominence the Ten Wings, the commentaries by Confucius that are essential to the I Ching's insights.
Born in 1921, Master Alfred Huang is a professor of Taoist philosophy, former Dean of Students at Shanghai University, and a third-generation master of Wu-style Tai Chi Chuan, Chi Kung, and Oriental meditation with more than 60 years experience. He studied the I Ching--a forbidden book at the time--in secret with one of China’s greatest I Ching masters, only to be branded an antirevolutionary by the Communist government and forced into manual labor in 1957 and imprisonment in 1966. During his 22 years of confinement, he found the strength to survive through meditation on the I Ching. Released in 1979, he emigrated to the United States. The founder of New Harmony, a nonprofit organization devoted to self-healing, and the author of The Numerology of the I Ching and Complete Tai-Chi, Master Huang lives on the island of Maui.
