This textbook conveys the wisdom and spirit of Taoism  August 10, 2011
by


The most powerful textbook I have ever read or reread. Since reading it, I have looked at other translations to see if I was missing anything. I don't know that I would have become such an eager student of Taoism, as I am now, if I had been initially exposed to a different translation. As corny as this may sound, the poetic value of Stephen Mitchell's version, when I first read it, "spoke" to me.

Summary

Lao-tzu's Tao Te Ching, or Book of the Way, is the classic manual on the art of living, and one of the wonders of the world. In eighty-one brief chapters, the Tao Te Ching looks at the basic predicament of being alive and gives advice that imparts balance and perspective, a serene and generous spirit. This book is about wisdom in action. It teaches how to work for the good with the effortless skill that comes from being in accord with the Tao (the basic principle of the universe) and applies equally to good government and sexual love; to child rearing, business, and ecology.Stephen Mitchell's bestselling version has been widely acclaimed as a gift to contemporary culture.
