    In 81 brief chapters, Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching, or Book of the Way, provides advice that imparts balance and perspective, as well as a serene and generous spirit. It teaches us 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.

    Where does Tao Te Ching rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really liked my old paperback Tao Te Ching, but 4 minutes in to this narration, and I felt, "this is going to be better". Mitchell's tone is very fitting to the content (sure he wrote it, but his reverence doesn't disappoint). Finally, I really enjoyed his preface, which is something I didn't have before. I'm very happy I found this.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lau Tzu via Mitchell. Mitchell's reverence for the tao is inspirational.


    Have you listened to any of Stephen Mitchell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Nope.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but it's 81 self contained sayings are conducive to interruptions or short listenings.
