Composed more than two thousand years ago, the Dao de jing (Tao Te Ching) set forth an alternative vision of reality in a world torn apart by violence and betrayal. Second only to the Bible, this timeless classic is one of the world’s most revered inspirational books. Daoism offers a comprehensive view of experience grounded in a full understanding of the wonders hidden in the ordinary. Now in this luminous new translation, Chinese scholars Ames and Hall bring the timeless wisdom of the Dao de jing into our contemporary world.

    " This version of the ancient Chinese text includes commentaries after each chapter that go a long way toward explaining some of the more obscure passages. That said, sometimes reading the words and not understanding them is as enlightening an experience as believing you have understood their intent. "

    " Well...the parts that were the actual translation of text were good words of advice. The scholarly interpertation however...snore. "
