This little book has yet more wonderfull wisdom and incite from Lao Tsu, and delightfully simple paintings illustrating the book nearly every other page. Brian Walker has done a wonderfull job with this book. I feel it's unfair to compare it to the Tao Te Ching, because i love that book so much. Yet this book is still a worhty companion to the Tao Te Ching. Another delightfull Lao Tsu work!
