Southborough, MA - Flat Earth Studio today announces the availability of the default book translation for the Yi Jing app, "Yi Jing - Book of Transformations" by Brian Arnold, as a free download from iBookstore for the iPad. This book offers a concise, modern introduction to the ancient Chinese book of wisdom, the I Ching or Book of Changes.
"Since the translation itself is a concise, modern introduction to the I Ching, I felt it was important to make that freely available to anyone," said Brian Arnold, who is also the developer of the Yi Jing app. "As an integral part of the Yi Jing app itself, it naturally promotes many of the app's features, but the book can also be referenced without the app." The book refers to several additional book translations that deepen one's understanding of the I Ching, which are also available in the Yi Jing app for additional in-app purchase.
"...a great non-sexist translation relating to modern realities but keeping ancient meanings in mind..." - (App Store feedback)
The book provides a brief introduction to the history of the I Ching, an explanation of the hexagrams, a description of several oracle methods, and the decision, image and lines text for all 64 hexagrams.

The Yi Jing book is available for free through the Apple iBookstore for the iPad. The Yi Jing app is available for $6.99 (USD) through the Apple App Store.
