Taoist living rests on four pillars: the public, the domestic, the private, and the spirit lives. Not only do Taoists strive to live these four aspects fully and in a balanced way, they also believe there is an outlook and an art to each of them. Eva Wong uses the teachings of Taoist masters themselves to explain the essential concepts. She then gives voice to these texts - simplifying them, removing barriers to understanding, and making them completely accessible and relevant to the modern reader. Wong is a clear and enthusiastic guide to this intriguing spiritual way, and she challenges us to stop, reflect, and ask ourselves: Do we balance the public, domestic, private, and spirit aspects of our lives, or do we emphasize some at the expense of the others? How can we think about unifying worldly and spiritual wisdom in day-to-day living?

This is one of the greatest books on morality, ethics, and virtue ever written in my opinion. Its Ramadan and I wanted to elevate myself in the way of the creator and this book has definitely helped. Thank you to the author and translator for this wonderful work. I plan to buy the book.
An outstanding introduction to "The Natural Way." I've read many other books on the subject, and up to this title, I found them full of information but dull in their delivery. This book, tho it can become somewhat repetitive at times, it does provide you with a solid and illustrative "idea" of what unravelling the true Taoist in you mean.
It was sometimes too detailed (ongoing without added depth), but the supporting arguments more than made up for this observation(s).
The entire book!
Every time the author would make the connection between all things existing in a natural order. We can never see past the choices we make, right? Often the author challenges your current perception regarding the interconnection of the "world" inside and outside us. We are part of the "ebb-n-flow" yet we fail to see the vastness of our reality.
