Xiangqi for Absolute Beginners
A very concise book for beginners who have never had any introduction to Xiangqi. Highly Recommended!
Xiangqi Puzzles: 1-5 move kills
A collection of many puzzles with simple kills that would be a great place to start learning Xiangqi, if you still hunger for more after doing the thousands of puzzles and endgame compositions found on this site! Note that there were two volumes to kills with three moves.
Xiangqi The Basics of Same Direction Cannon Openings Every move explained
Wong illustrates and explains the Same Direction Cannons which is suitable for beginners. It is a good supplement to ancient manuals, especially the Secret in the Tangerine.
Grandmaster Hu RongHua and his Elephant Openings
Grandmaster Hu Ronghua has revolutionized Xiangqi in many ways. In the opening phase, the Elephant Opening and Sandwiched Horse Defense have become mainstream opening systems, largely due to the efforts of the legendary grandmaster.
In this book, Wong Ping Loong explained some simple concepts nicely which should benefit the reader a lot.
