This book was the fourth in an intended series about each of the twelve Chinese astrological signs. Sadly the publishers (and, presumeably, the book-buying public) lost interest around this point, but only after this book was written; so here you can read it for nothing. All the usual copyright © conditions apply but feel free to download it for personal use.
Although the book focusses on the Monkey sign, much of it can be used by anyone else to determine their Chinese astrological profile and what it says about them. Sceptics are invited to have a go and judge for themselves how accurately their portrait fits.
