T'ai Kung's Six Secret Teachings is the first of The Seven Military Classics of Ancient China, a collection of texts translated by Ralph D. Sawyer with Mei-chün Sawyer. According to the author, these seven military classics are widely available in the East, the material forming a plethora of additional translations, and published editions. In addition, according to the translator, many businesses, businesspeople, countries, and individuals around the world use many of the principles presented in the overall Seven Military Classics.
My daughter loves to pick out books from the “My First Book of” series. We don’t always learn many words, but she really enjoys reading through the terms—particularly to see how to say common phrases and animal names in the different languages—and hearing how they are pronounced. Her favorite, so far, is the Spanish book, but we just picked up My First Book of Mandarin Chinese Words this weekend, so that may change!
