Audible Editor Reviews

Ming-Dao Deng has devoted much of his life to studying the Tao. He was a student of Taoist master Kwan Saihung for 13 years, and he has written several books on the ancient wisdom accrued during his decades of practice. In Scholar Warrior, Ming-Dao Deng stresses the equality of physical and mental health for aspiring Taoists. The mind is nothing without the body, he states, and vice versa. Deng goes on to show how Taoist philosophy can be applied in modern daily life, writing that the path of the Tao "is one of self-cultivation". Fred Sanders captures the warm, instructive tone of the book, adopting the voice of a great teacher who might just change a listener's life.

    "Worth it!"

    Highly recommended for not just the martial artist, but any who seek more understanding of the Tao/Dao.

    "Not good for listening in the car"
    Would you try another book from Ming-Dao Deng and/or Fred Sanders?

    There is some interesting information in this book, but as I listen to most of my books on the commute to work, it has some parts that can't be done in the car. There are many exercises described which might be good in a calm room, but I wish I had known about this before purchasing the book.


    Would you recommend Scholar Warrior to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, if they were going to listen in a calm room
