    How about Bazi books? 

    As for the link you shared, I think half of them or more are not worth the money from various reviews I read so far. :(

    These 2 books from Goh Guan Leong if you manage to find them. It covers most of the basic fundamentals of reading a bazi chart. What i find lacking are the explanations on earthly branches relations like clash and combination. But this can be supplemented with Vincent Koh's book. These 3 books should be give you a good foundation on bazi.

    Most english Bazi books are diluted books. Not worth the money. Borrow them from library instead.

    Good enough foundation books and probably the best within a reasonable range without paying through the nose for thousands or tens of thousands worth of english bazi course.

    But too many basic-but-incomplete beginner english CM books flood the market.

    I sincerely wish to see an advance level (or even master level) book. Looks like it's not happening anytime soon!

    Yeah from what I read so far from others' comments, a lot of English Bazi courses are really not worth the money, just basically teaching what you can already read from the book. And spending many hours plotting your own chart. =.="
    Hope this question doesn't affect anyone but: which English Bazi courses are recommended ones so far?

    If everything in life is measurable, then understanding destiny would be as simple as counting 1, 2, and 3.

    Yes I think Kevin Chan book is already a very easy primer and good value for its price. Just a few dollars on google play.

    go check out these authors. you can get them on amazon.   jin peh.  jerry king.   they have good books.  then get the bazi one from grandmaster raymond lo's 'the old secret'. you can only get his book from him through his website.  if you learn the books from them well, you'll have good foundation.   the materials overlap but they present differently so you learn better.  different view is what makes you more skillful.   these are worth the money and more. all other authors with english info on bazi aren't worth it. i've check them all out. 

    so far the ones others recommend are poor. in my opinion compared to these.

    Tan Khoon Yong & Goh Guan Leong is interesting but kinda dry academic type of organization, so kinda hard to learn from it.
