Drawing on meticulous study of multiple sources, this fresh but authoritative reading of Lao Tsu’s timeless classic combines the poetry of the Tao Te Ching with a wealth of additional material: an introduction to the enigmatic Lao Tsu and his times; a discussion of the many challenges facing the translator; 81 illustrative Chinese characters/phrases, selected to highlight key themes in each chapter; separate commentary and inspirational quotes, as well as room for you to record your own impressions, section by section.

Intuitive Translation

This is a really good translation. The original Chinese is rendered almost perfectly into English in a way that the poems not just make sense, but maintain the spirit and feel of poetry. The layout is also spacious and uncluttered. The poems are initially laid out without annotations: just clean and simple on the page so that it is easy to read. Later the poems are laid out separately again, but this time with footnotes and the translator's notes. This is a really good idea because it means you can approach the book as a simple reader or as an academic.
