The Tao Te Ching has wisdom for everyone, no matter what they believe. It is a fast read, great for rainy days. Read it over and over and you'll get new meanings and new inspirations. I like this translation out of all the translations I've read (and I've read over 10 different translations). I think this one has the best balance of accuracy and poetry and clarity. Makes a great gift, too.

I think this is my absolute favorite translation of the Tao, and the truest to its essence. Wu manages to be poetic and vivid without being too specific. He allows the Tao to retain the ambiguity that makes it so very universal. Many translations of the Tao include a lot of interpretation or positive/negative bias, which I believe is very counter to the spirit of the Tao Teh Ching. This translation has little or none of that skew, and so I would earnestly reccomend this version of the Tao to anyone, and especially to those who are first being introduced to it.
