Interesting to Taoist scholars but for me much too mystical compared to the fundamental text of Tao te Ching, which is of universal significance.

HASH(0x9a641a58) out of 5 stars Nice little book 1 July 2012
By Anthony - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is a handy little reference guide that gives you little jolts of taoist wisdom very succinctly. As usual Eva's books are very nice and readable. Im not done with it at the moment so I will see how it progresses. Seems to go deeper as you read on.
