"Mitchell's rendition of the "Tao Te Ching comes as close to being definitive for our time as any I can
imagine. It embodies the virtues its translator credits to the Chinese original: a gemlike lucidity that is radiant with
humor, grace, largeheartedness, and deep wisdom."-- Huston Smith, author of "The Religions of Man""Mitchell's great
talent is to communicate with the profound simplicity utterly appropriate for this task. The obscure has been made
transparent and available."-- "Common Boundary""Beautiful and accessible; the English, as 'fluid as melting ice, ' is a
joy to read throughout."-- "The New Republic"
