A great, profound, simple rendering,

This review is from: Tao Te Ching (Shambhala Pocket Classics) (Paperback)
Of the four translations of Tao Te Ching that I have read, John Wu's is easily the best. The language is simple, direct and 'punchy'. At the same time, it manages to convey the deep and heartfelt thinking of the work. I read it again and again, and always find new depth - Wu has shown me why the Tao Te Ching is still a great work after 2500 years.
