Brilliant, mystical, pragmatic and witty, some have called Chuang Tsu the world's first anarchist. Even 2,000 years after his death, this provocative Taoist text remains in the forefront of ancient Chinese philosophical study. A companion to the Tao Te Ching, Chuang Tsu: Inner Chapters is a spiritual classic in its own right and a source book second only to the Tao Te Ching in importance in the Taoist canon. The sublime prose serves as a profound and paradoxical commentary to the Tao Te Ching.

The performance is worth a million dollars. The guy really put a lot of energy into the act and you can tell just from the sample. The chinese language and music cuts are excellent and everything about the audio is perfect. Of course Chuang Tsu is an amazingly fun philosopher also.
I think I own all of the audio books for Lao Tsu's Tao De Ching and I say narration by Jacob Needleman is best and I would recommend it to anyone who is getting into this taoist stuff.
The reader is absolutely phenomenal in this! It helps you really get into the stories
Listened to in one sitting and then again several times!
Well translated and well read.
My only gripe is I felt as if the last chapter would have been better as an introduction and feel that maybe it was intended to be.
