Overview

Written in about the sixth century BC, the "Tao Te Ching" is the classic text written by the Chinese sage, Laozi( or Lao Tzu), a contemporary of Confucuis. Although written more than 2,500 years ago its concepts and teachings have never been more relevant to the Western world than they are today. He offers profound wisdom, arguing that humankind is but a tiny part of the whole universe and that individuals can attain true fulfilment by striving to live in harmony - not only with others but with their natural environment. This illustrated silk-bound edition offers an insightful new translation with the works organised into 81 verses divided into two parts - it is an essential edition to any collection of the world's classic texts.

    Very good presentation and translation.

    I have many copies of the Tao and this one is a pure joy. I am very happy with the translation and the illustrations are a wonderful addition to the work. I think this is a very good book for introducing the Tao to others.
