I've long been a fan of Lao Tsu, so I found this text a bit disappointing. It does have the famous "butterfly" verse in it, but overall I found the stories pedantic if not downright Confucian (the opposite of Taoist), and somewhat lacking the mystical essence (or nothingness) of Lao Tsu. Still, there is wisdom that shines through enough to make it worth reading.

My last book from Gateways book store in Santa Cruz :-(
