Format: Hardcover
This is a great book for two reasons. The first reason is Ray Grigg's translation of the Tao Te Ching itself. There will never be a definitive English translation, but Ray Grigg manages to bring it alive for modern Western readers. He ignores the literal sense of the original Chinese in order to convey the sense and underlying meaning of the message.
Secondly, his description of the history of the Tao Te Ching and the difficulties in translating the text provide a further valuable insight. I highly recommend this book.

Format: Hardcover
This interpretation of the Tao Te Ching is poetic, meaningful, and moving. It is in no way "new agey". This translation, in my opinion, is far superior to the Stephen Mitchell translation. I don't know why that book has so many more comments than this one. I highly recommend this version above the Mitchell book.
