Very misleading title... 27 Sept. 2014
By J.D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is titled "Lao Tzu's Tao and Wu Wei," however it does not contain the Wu Wei chapters by Henri Borel, it only contains the translation of the Tao Te Ching by Dwight Goddard. While the text is formatted nicely -- nicer than other reprints of this book -- the title is misleading. I wouldn't personally purchase a copy of the Tao Te Ching by Dwight Goddard simply for that alone. I have read the full ebook "Lao Tzu's Tao and Wu Wei," and in my experience, while the translation of the Tao Te Ching is good -- better then others out there -- it's really the Wu Wei chapters by Borel that bring the book to life. His narrative stories help to illustrate the concepts outlined in the Tao Te Ching so well, it feels like they chopped out some necessary heart and soul of this book by not including it. While the original book is worthy of 5 stars, this reprint, with the Wu Wei chapters missing is just barely worth 2 stars. It's not that the Goddard translation is bad -- it's really not. It's just that if you are reprinting a book, reprint *all* of it, or change the name to reflect the fact that you're only reprinting part of it. For example: "Tao Teh King" by Dwight Goddard, 1919 edition, would have been an appropriate title for this book. Calling it "Lao Tzu's Tao and Wu Wei" by Dwight Goddard and Henri Borel is just dishonest as it does not include the Wu Wei chapters.
