Best Books on Taoism
The best books on Taoism: both fiction and non-fiction. Preference is given to the philosophical tradition, but feel free to add mystical and religious books as well. I am also including Soto Zen as it has a lot of parallels with Taoism.

James One of the great Books about Daoism not on this list (ought to be) is "The Empty Boat" by Osho. Also, an excellent recent book overlooked is "The Three Treasures of the Ancient Daoists." by James Cox."
