Format: School & Library Binding
One of the best, most readable interpretations of Tao Te Ching I have come across over the years. The supporting illustrations are bold yet do not take away from the text.

Certainly one of those classic coffee table books I'd like to pick up from time to time and ponder over a few pages.. highly recommended!

those who say, do not know 6 Jan. 2009
By Bill Schaeffer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: School & Library Binding Verified Purchase
Nevertheless,

It is with great humility and respect that I recommend for anyone with interest to read a little of the philosophy; and then relax a bit and think about it, or just sit in the sun for a while instead.

This is a marvelous translation even without the nice photographs; thoughtful, fluid, and simple.
I AM SURE YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED BY THIS ONE. 17 Dec. 2005
By Burkhard Bohm - Published on Amazon.com
Format: School & Library Binding
THIS WAS THE FIRST EVER COPY-TRANSLATION OF THE TAO CHING I LAID MY HANDS ON. AND I NEVER STOPPED LOOKING AT IT AGAIN AND AGAIN - SINCE MORE THAN 20 YEARS. ONE HAS TO LOOK AT THE WORDS, WITHOUT JUDGEMENT, WITH AN OPEN MIND AND LET THE MEANING FIND ITS WAY .... . THE SIMPLER ONE'S THINKING THE FARTHER IT GOES. THE VIRTUE OF SIMPLICITY IS BEAUTIFULLY AND CONVINCINGLY IMPRESSED UPON THE READER BY THE BEAUTIFUL AND VERY THOUGHTFUL B&w PHOTOGRAPHY. - I AM SURE YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED BY THIS ONE.

Very nice Book 29 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: School & Library Binding
Out of three other texts I have seen this book creates the nicest imagery. The book also has these simple black and white photos of natural objects. I am no expert but it was easy to read and i liked the word choices. I would definitely buy a copy of this edition for myself. You won't be disappointed.
