AUTHOR'S NOTE:
This book is something new from the 5th century BCE. Everything old is new again . . .

I received this as a Goodreads First Reads giveaway.
It's definitely not a book I would have purchased on my own. It is hard for me to get into this book. However, my daughter has really enjoyed it.

In compliance with FTC guidelines, I have won this book through the Goodreads Giveaways.

While I had read parts of the Tao Te Ching, I had not read the entirety. This is an excellent book in that it shows the Tao Te Ching in the original language as well as literal and subjective interpretations and how to find your own meaning within.

My Rating System:
* couldn't finish, ** wouldn't recommend, *** would recommend, **** would read again, ***** have read again.
