Perhaps no book touches us the way it does the first time we read it. I fell in love with the first copy I read of the Tao Te Ching, it was borrowed from the library at a time of deep spiritual struggling and so admittedly I may be biased to that version. While Dr Dyer's translation gets the same meaning across, for me it doesn't hold the magical/poetic quality of the one I read so many years ago. However it is still a wonderful work that I refer to frequently and the bonuses to this version is ...more
I have never read the complete works of the Tao Te Ching by Lao Zi before, but for the past 3 weeks,went through the 81 verses in 3 different translated versions.They are : "Living the Wisdom of the Tao" by Wayne W.Dyer (2008) "Tao Te Ching" by Gia-Fu Feng & Jane English (1997) and "Tao Te Ching" by Stephen Mitchell (2000).

The beauty of the Tao Te Ching is in the Chinese classical way it was written more than 2,500 years ago.And of the 3 books, only Gia-Fu Feng was able to give the true esse

I'm not really sure how to review this. :(

It had some nice passages, a quick read, and the affirmations by Wayne Dyer were great.
I finally got through this book. And I am not saying that in a bad way. April has been a horrible month for me in terms of reading. I barely finished this one and other book, which is rare for me. Anyhow, to this book. It is a nice accessible translation of the Tao Te Ching verses. Dr. Dyer then adds little affirmations to supplement or set the tone for the reading. Overall, it's an ok. It definitely will give you something to think about. There were a couple of passages that I particularly like ...more
What a wonderful book. I feel very peaceful reading it. Lovely.
I enjoy the affirmations paired up with the actual verses. Reading 1 per day & focusing/meditating on that helps put your life into perspective.
5 Stars for the Tao. 1 Star for the stupid coles notes affirmations.
The lessons in here are unbelievable!
