Publisher's Summary

May you live during interesting times: so goes an ancient Chinese blessing - or some say curse. That wish has come true for us. Now what? 

In this radically illuminating audiobook, Alan Cohen delves into one of the world’s most venerated wisdom texts for answers and brings the lofty and enigmatic concepts of the Tao Te Ching down to earth in fresh, easy-to-grasp language with practical, personal examples we can use to uplift our daily lives. 

Most other interpretations of the Tao march through the stanzas one by one. Here Alan Cohen calls forth the ancient verses around themes that are central to our modern lives - from love to work to the lessons we learn from pain. Then he brings each message to life in short vignettes where he imagines himself a student of Lao Tse and interacts with the master directly and intimately. 

He invites you to join the ancient sage and the contemporary seeker as they wend their way through the challenges and triumphs of the same journey you’re taking yourself.

Captivating

I was wondering what could be better or even close to A Course in Miracles made easy and to my excitement this was right on par. I enjoyed every minute of this book and I wish Alan Cohen narrated my life and inner dialogue as I would probably pay more attention then.

You picked this book for the last 30 mins of this book.

Not a big “woo woo” guy but wanted to be open minded and hear different perspectives. There are for sure some great nuggets of insight but a lot of this book came off as “feel good...woo woo BS” but it it has given me a desire to buy a hard copy of the Tao further inspection no filtered through the author’s take. Great voice, good intent, but fell flat in many areas with a heavy “social justice” themes and anecdotal stories.

Just buy the Tao.

Beautiful

This book is like a breath of fresh air, with timeless wisdom and a gentle guiding light. It's something I will come back to time and again. Alan Cohen is enchanting. Just purchased his explanation on ACIM and can't wait to get stuck in.
