Essential reading for anyone-even those who have read previous translations-with an interest in ancient wisdom.

For more than 2, 500 years, the Tao Te Ching has been the major underlying influence in Chinese thought and culture. I first read the Tao Te Ching in college. This copy seemed much different than the one I read years back. And I am not just talking about the author's choice to use female pronouns as well as male pronouns in his version (incidentally - how close can one get to awareness of Tao if one allows oneself to get hung up on seeing "He" rather than "She" in the teachings?).

The Essential Translation of the Ancient Chinese Book of the Tao. By: Lao Tzu, John Minford - translator. In 81 brief chapters, Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching, or Book of the Way, provides advice that imparts balance and perspective, as well as a serene and generous spirit. Narrated by: Edoardo Ballerini. It teaches us how to work for the good with the effortless skill that comes from being in accord with the Tao: the basic principle of the universe.

Acknowledged to be one of the definitive versions of the influential Chinese classic, this new translation reveals the text in its full glory and recaptures the flow and power of the original writings. One of the most important books in Chinese literature, its significance has reverberated throughout the centuries since the Han dynasty. Its powerful effect on Western society is second to none in terms of non-Western books. Here the Tao Te Ching's 80 chapters of wise sayings and commentaries on the self and our relation to society are sumptuously illustrated with contemporary works of art and are viewed not only individually but as part of a unifying pattern. Text in both English and Chinese includes background on Lao Tzu, the recognized author of the Tao Te Ching, plus a brief history of Taoism. Essential reading for anyone--even those who have read previous translations--with an interest in ancient wisdom.

The best translation I have come across. The three authors seem to have an insight into the spirit of the writings that I have not found in other translations. In the first part of the book there is an excellent history section. The Illustrations are remarkable. Of twenty books I have reviewed on the Tao Te Ching, this is the best.

I first got this edition of Tao while in interfaith seminary back in 1996. I have read and used it for services and other workshops and groups since then on a regular basis. I highly recommend this translation as the best I have found so far..... It is obvious (to me) that the writers and graphic artists too have done their inner homework before completing this treasure.
May you all experience this clearly created playful expression of the Tao.

I bought this because of the art work and that it has the original text in traditional Chinese.
But I am disappointed with the translation. Some parts are even inaccurate.
There are so many other better translations out there.

I don't recommend this translation as it is incomprehensible in many of the passages. The authors, in being too exacting in the translation fail to communicate the essence of the Taoist truths.
