Scholars say that the original Tao Te Ching is a poem. Like a poem, this version of the Tao Te Ching is not meant to be read in one breath from front to back, but is to be at intervals internalized and contemplated.

    " This is as close to religion as I get. Full of ideas to live by. "

    " As with all wisdom tradition books, this had a lot to take and a lot to leave behind. I enjoyed reading the book for its own sake, but it feels much more like a loose interpretation of the Tao Te Ching than a translation. While I realize that all translation is ultimately interpretation, I felt that Mitchell played a bit too loose with the source. It does leave me eager to read translations to compare. "

    " Absolutely the most mind opening piece of literature I have ever read. "

    " There are many, many translations of the second best-selling book in history. However, many are too literal and, as such, overlook the fact that the Tao is a work of poetry first and foremost. Admittedly, the most accurate, reliable account is Thomas Cleary's rendering (along with Wu's, though the latter's prose is very stifled) whereas this version(along with Jane English's edition) is more fluid. For beginning students, this translation is recommended. "
