    "The complete guide to taoism"

    This audio book is a great primer to toaism. Not only to its philosophy, but also religious aspects, lifestyle, cooking, feng shui etc. I can fully recommend it.

    "Great Listen"

    I found this audiobook satisfied my curiosity and served as a great introduction to Taoism. I was able to follow the Taoist concentration meditation and experience an altered state of mind. Obviously this isn't the best for driving a car. :)

    I think the audiobook may have benefited from providing more details, however it may be that it strikes a good balance between too few and too many details.

    "Good basic introduction"

    This was my first introduction to Taoism and I received a very clear picture of the way and the core teachings. Clearly read, easy to follow with simple introductory practices attached. However I am missing the study guide which was referred on few occasions but is not delivered with the audio book.

    "introduction only"

    It is well written and uncomplicated. The one thing that is not pleasant is that he includes a long and 'real time' meditation walk through at the end of nearly every chapter. this makes it unpleasant if you feel like listening to the information and insights without sitting through a 15 words in ten min. slow meditation. On the other hand the meditations are very effective since they make you want to sleep.

    "Ken Cohen is brilliant"

    This is a very good introduction to Taoism.
    Ken Cohen mentions a "study guide" but Audible has not supplied one unfortunatly..
    It would be perfect if they did. This is why I only give 3 stars
