Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lao-tzu, the legendary sage of ancient China, is traditionally considered to be the author of the Tao Te Ching, one of the most popular classics of world literature. Now Lao-tzu's further teachings on the Tao, or Way, are presented here in the first English translation of the Chinese text known as the Wen-tzu. Although previously ignored by Western scholars, the Wen-tzu has long been revered by the Chinese as one of the great classics of ancient Taoism. In it, Lao-tzu shows that the cultivation of simplicity and spontaneity is essential to both the enlightened individual and the wise leader. This timeless work will appeal to a broad audience of contemporary readers who have come to consider Lao-tzu's Tao Te Ching a classic on the art of living.

Synopsis:

The further teachings of the author of Tao Teh Ching have been translated into English for the first time by the renowned translator of such famous Asian texts as Sun Tzu's Art of War and Zen Lessons: The Art of Leadership as well as classic texts of I Ching studies.
