The Way and Its Power: Tao Te Ching and Its Place &hellip by Arthur Waley

With that kind of celebrity endorsement, how could this book disappoint? English books on Taoism are SO dependent on the translator. Well worth reading.
Surfaces and Essences: Analogy as the Fuel and Fir&hellip by Douglas Hofstadter
1.0 out of 5 stars Like a Hollywood re-make, 24 April 2014
This is Lakoff and Johnson's "Metaphors we live by" by another name. I couldn't find anything significant that isn't in the original work. Check out the original: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Metaphors-We-Live-George-Lakoff/dp/0226468011/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1398334323&sr=8-1-fkmr0&keywords=lakojohnson+metaphors+we+live+by, which really is a life-changing read.

It occasionally freezes. It's the app, not my Kindle HD. Apart from that, it's great and I love playing it!
