This is a lovely book. I read it, along with 'Liberation', when I was in France on my Year Abroad and it really kept me comapny! In fact, I used to discipline myself that I could only read one article per day, otherwise I would run out of stuff to read! And because of that I ended up not finishing it whereas I could have read it in maybe 3 days, his style is so gentle.

A collection of The Barefoot Doctor's columns from the "Observer", this isan excellent book for either diping into or reading from cover to cover. Aplethora of subjects are given the Doctor's spin; advice, exercises andTaoist wisdom are presented in an easily accessable form...highlyrecommended!

I want to lead his lifestyle. In a world where we're always too busy to even have a proper stretch or be consious about what we shove in our mouth, this book, as well as his Sunday column is always uplifting. It makes me consider for one moment how I can slightly change my life for the better, today.

What is taoism anyway? 21 April 2009
By Lucia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book at a low point in my life, i guess (i cant even remember) , when i was living in London. This is a collection of Stephen Russell's UK newspaper columns. They interlace real personal stories with Taoist wisdom and practical exercises that you can do to alter your outlook or future. If you are not naturally drawn to the spiritual world and the ties between the body, the mind and life experience, this whole book will fall on deaf ears. I found it enlightening and i still reach for it on the shelf when i feel myself at a standstill. The only drawback is that some of the homework he gives you is a bit complex and might be difficult to do every day . (I picture someone following all of this advice at once as patting his head, rubbing his belly , tapping his foot, chewing gum and trying to drive 100 miles per hour on a curving road - all at the same time) .. it's tricky but you will take some of his messages with you and they will alter the way you think for the better. This is a great book for those with short attention spans like myself. Every few pages consist of a short chapter and each chapter covers a completely different topic so you can sort of randomly read the chapters out of order as they seem relevant to what's going on in your life right now (which is what i have done.)
