Reviews

"Among the many translations of Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching, Ursula K. Le Guin's new version is a special treasure--a delight. There is something startlingly fresh and creatively alive here, brought forth by Ms. Le Guin's intuitive and personal ingenuity."--Chuangliang Al Huang, founder of the Living Tao Foundation and coauthor (with Alan Watts) of Tao: The Watercourse Way

"A student of the Tao for several decades, Le Guin has created an English text that will speak to modern readers in a fresh and lively way, while conveying the humor, insight, and beauty of the original."--Lion's Roar magazine "The type of work which the great Polish poet and Nobel laureate Wislawa Szymborska meant when she spoke of 'that rare miracle when a translation stops being a translation and becomes . . . a second original.' . . . The whole of Lao Tzu: Tao Te Ching is well worth savoring--as much for the ancient substance as for Le Guin's stylistic splendor."--Maria Popova, Brain Pickings
