Chuang Tzu was a Chinese philosopher and chief spokesperson for Taoism, which heavily influenced Chan Buddhism in China and subsequently Zen Buddhism in Japan. Many centuries later everyone's favorite hermit the Trappist monk Thomas Merton came along and, using existing translations, wrote up these personal versions of Chuang Tzu's sayings. These ancient writings remain highly applicable to our modern times. Those familiar with Zen will certainly find much familiar ground here, but the texts are accessible and relevant to all. Highly recommended.
