Description:
"A refreshing new translation. . . . Highly recommended."—"Library Journal"

"With its clarity and scholarly range, this version of the "Taoteching" works as both a readable text and a valuable resource of Taoist interpretation."—"Publi­shers Weekly"

"Read it in confidence that it comes as close as possible to expressing the Chinese text in English."—Victor Mair, professor of Chinese studies, University of Pennsylvania

"Lao-tzu's" "Taoteching" is an essential volume of world literature, and Red Pine's nuanced and authoritative English translation—reissued and published with the Chinese text "en face"—is one of the best-selling versions. What sets this volume apart from other translations are its commentaries by scores of Taoist scholars, poets, monks, recluses, adepts, and emperors spanning more than two thousand years. "I envisioned this book," Red Pine notes in his introduction, "as a discussion between Lao-tzu and a group of people who have thought deeply about his text."

"Sages have no mind of their own"
"their mind is the mind of the people"
"to the good they are good"
"to the bad they are good"
"until they become good"
"to the true they are true"
