Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A fundamental book of the Taoist, the Tao Te Ching is said to reveal the underlying principles that govern the world in which we live. Holding to the laws of nature, it offers both a moral compass and an internal balance, and is regarded as a revelation in its own right. Through time--from one powerful dynasty to another--many changes have been made to its original Chinese text. And over the years, translators have offered versions of the Tao that reflect their personal interpretations of the work. Many of these editions, although beautiful, have deviated from the original text in the name of poetic license. For readers who are looking for a purer interpretation of this work, researcher Patrick Michael Byrne has produced a translation that is extremely accurate, while capturing the harmony of the original. Here is a Tao Te Ching that you can understand, enjoy, and value.
