    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.

    The "New English Version" is an ill-translated, uninspiring bore, narrated in a most drab, unenlightened manner.
    I am so disappointed with this version of the "Tao" that I have not been able to listen to it through its conclusion. I have decided to purchase an earlier translation. Take my advice; try another version of the "Tao"

    Word Smart II takes up where Word Smart leaves off - with more important words you need to succeed in school and at work. And because this is an audio program, you won't have to worry about correct punctuation or embarrass yourself when you try to impress others with your growing mental lexicon.

    Overall

    I purchased word smart a few months ago. As one reviewer has already mentioned, some of the words presented in the audio book are a bit basic. That being said, there were plenty of vocabulary words were novel to me and, due to the dynamic didactic style, I learned the new words with ease and alacrity. Interestingly, now that I have assimilated many of the more obscure words into my mental dictionary, I seem to notice those particular words in speech and written form on a regular basis. What did I do before Word Smart??

    As I alluded to before, the teaching format that Word Smart utilizes is perfect for my learning style. As such, I purchased Word Smart II and can say with sincerity, that I am continuing to expand my vocabulary just as quickly and easily as I did with the first audio book.

    Book II is a worthy purchase. I would have rated it a five if the word list mentioned in the book was available for download.
