One of the Chinese classics most widely known by Westerners, the "Tao Teh Ching" is a series of insightful comments on life and nature. Part poetry, part paradox, always forceful and profound the "Tao Teh Ching" has been leading its readers to expand their view of life since it was written over 2,000 years ago. John C. H. Wu has done a remarkable job rendering this difficult and subtle text into English while retaining the freshness and depth of the original. This edition is complemented by Chinese text on facing pages.
