The I Ching or Book of Changes
by Richard Wilhelm, translated by C.F. Baynes

This is the classic translation of the I Ching, which first brought its ancient wisdom to a western audience - a very readable, inspired translation. It contains, in addition to the I Ching, a detailed discussion of its underlying principles, a collection of ancient commentaries, including one that dates to Confucius, and a fascinating introductory essay by Carl Jung, in which he discusses his famous principle of synchronicity, which he relates to the workings of the I Ching.

The I Ching Workbook
by R.L. Wing

A large format I Ching workbook. It allows you to keep notes related to the lines you receive in consultations. The idea is to keep track of patterns emerging in your life, which can be very helpful. The translation doesn't contain the usual somewhat mysterious poetry, but clearly written prose.

I Ching
Walking your path, creating your future
by Hilary Barrett

Tao Te Ching
by Stephen Mitchell

This is a lyrical and highly readable version of the Tao te Ching, written by a long time student of Zen. Contains a valuable introduction and endnotes. An important book for students of Chinese philosophy, because the principles of Taoism are also the philosophical underpinnings of the I Ching.
