National icon Willie Nelson has evolved over the years from country music outlaw swimming against a whiskey river to a Zen-like figure of wisdom and contentment. In this autobiographical collection of life advice, The Tao of Willie, one of America’s truest hearts reveals the spiritual and practical lessons learned from decades of hard knocks and good bounces.

This inspiring and entertaining collection of “Willie wisdom” takes us from his days as a young boy in Texas where he learns to respect his elders, to his roadhouse days when he united redneck rockers, long-haired hippies, and straight-laced country music fans, to the mega-sized benefit concerts and environmentalism that define his boundless heart. And there are plenty of his favorite jokes along the way.

With stories that will both make you laugh out loud and look deep inside yourself, he shows us how the Willie way, and the way of the Tao, can also be your way. Let Willie’s common sense approach to life awaken you to the happiness that already exists in your own heart. With Willie as your guide, join the river of life and you’ll be carried on an amazing journey.

    " Simple, chatty, choppy and wise, Willie's book of wisdom at age 72 (he's 80 in 2013) is like running into him over and over and remembering something he's said. His values make me feel better--family and friends and love and music--he has kept them all close always. He knows himself: "I'm a troubadour" he says, and that captures it. He gives us the essential skeleton of his life, earliest family, four wives, seven children, many miles. My takeaway line is "the [Chinese] concept of Wu Wei, which suggests fulfilling every task with the least necessary actions." He loves Texas and he loves Maui, but most of all he loves the people are there with him. A happy-making book. "

    " I got this when my best friend was in China for the summer and I was still at home in Montana. You know, a way for me to combine our two worlds. Anyway, I loved this easy and entertaining read and should probably read it again--it did help me remember to just chill out and relax! "
