Alexander Goldstein, a graduate of the Far-Eastern University in Sinology, lived and worked in mainland China for a period as a translator/interpreter, a manager, and a martial arts' practitioner. A certified instructor of ‘Chang-quan’ (external-style boxing) and ‘Taiji-quan’ (internal-style boxing), he is a lecturer of Chinese culture and traditions at the Open University in Tel-Aviv. He also is the author of Lao-zi's "Dao-De Jing," Chan (Zen) masters' paradoxes, "The Illustrated Canon of Chen Family Taiji-quan," a Chinese novel and some other editions, which are available in print and electronic publishing at most online retailers published in English, Spanish and Russian. What makes his books so appealing is profound analysis and authority with which various strains of the vigorous Chinese culture are woven into a clear and useful piece of guidance for a business person who conducts the affairs with far-eastern counterparties and for a counsellor who develops strategies that enable leaders to position their organisations effectively.

A numerological approach to the Tai xuan jing. The book is in great need of graphics, particularly one showing all the tetragrams and a table to identify the symbols cast in divination,The book is also in great need of an editor. The writing is messy and becomes heavy reading, dense to understand, Many bold statements with no reference to any source other than saying it is based on a commentary by Fan Wang in the introduction.On top of that a great part of the introduction consists of material blatantly lifted from Michael Nylan's introduction to her 1993 translation. This is unfortunate because another translation of this book is greatly needed. This clearly missed that opportunity,
