"Stephen Mitchell's rendition of the Tao Te Ching comes as close to being definitive for our time as any I can imagine. It embodies the virtues its translator credits to the Chinese original: a gemlike lucidity that is radiant with humor, grace, large-heartedness, and deep wisdom." (Huston Smith, author of The Religions of Man)
I recommend to any one that is struggling with a loved one or work issues. it puts a whole new perspective on self.
So many have included they disliked the ending but truly the ending has a greater meaning and is important that it is there as a reminder in how it all fits together ( yin/yang) when you find judgment is needed than know that is where you need to grow. Love and wisdom to all
This book changed my life. The wisdom within it is awe inspiring. It provides a completely different, more peaceful way of looking at life- and why we are here. Underneath all of the drama of this world, there lies peace available for anyone who wants to tap into it. This book provides guidelines that - if practiced - will lead to a happy, truly more fulfilled life. As you practice, and change your focus, it's as if things magically change around you, and life is easier and far more beautiful. I would recommend the Tao Te Ching to anyone who is open to it, and ready for a more peaceful way of living.
