YEAR OF THE HORSE
The popularity of Year of the Dragon prompted thoughts of a sequel and there are in fact 11 fairly obvious ones. This was the first, which goes into the astrology rather more than than the Dragon book, but combines it with a general survey of the Horse's place in Chinese myth, legend and history, showing how it acquired the characteristics assigned to it. You don't need to believe the astrology actually works to enjoy the book. What matters is that during the centuries and millennia during which it evolved most Chinese did, so the system became a reflection of many of their deepest insights into human nature.
