There are many Tao Te Ching translations and audiobooks. I’ve listened to several and this is my favourite. I can happily listen to this as I drift off to sleep in the evening. Also, the narrator’s pace is measured so that you can take each sentence in. This is a work to be pondered over many listenings.

Jordan Peterson presents a refreshing voice of wisdom in a crowd of shrill hysteria and politically correct drivel. I was impressed with the combination of common sense advice and surprising insights. There is lots to learn here. If you’re looking for a blueprint for a life well lived, you’ve come to the right place.
