Lao-tzu's Tao Te Ching, or Book of the Way, is the classic manual on the art of living, and one of the wonders of the
world. In eighty-one brief chapters, the Tao Te Ching looks at the basic predicament of being alive and gives advice
that imparts balance and perspective, a serene and generous spirit. This book is about wisdom in action. It teaches how
to work for the good with the effortless skill that comes from being in accord with the Tao (the basic principle of the
universe) and applies equally to good government and sexual love; to child rearing, business, and ecology.
Stephen Mitchell's bestselling version has been widely acclaimed as a gift to contemporary culture.
