Ranging from political advice to common wisdom, it has also served as an inspiration to artists across the ages and throughout the world. Throughout history, some books have changed the world. They have transformed the way we see ourselves - and each other. They have inspired debate, dissent, war and revolution. They have enlightened, outraged, provoked and comforted. They have enriched lives - and destroyed them. Now Penguin brings you the works of the great thinkers, pioneers, radicals and visionaries whose ideas shook civilization and helped make us who we are.Hide synopsis
I have found this little book to be of great benefit when looking for mantra's or beautiful sentences to use in my stress management and relaxation therapy work. The cost of this little gem was excellent and I received it extremely quickly following order. I would recommend this as something to always keep at hand.
The Tao Te Ching is a life altering book. I like it a great deal and have owned a number of different editions. Lao Tzu's ancient wisdom is always meaningful - the illustrated edition with calligraphy and beautiful black and white pictures is especially desirable - which is why I ordered it for a friend for Christmas - (however I have yet to receive it and so had to give her mine - I do hope the replacement arrives).
My tip is that you should order more than one copy so that you will always have at least one to give away (and still have one for yourself).
Tao Te Ching is one of those books you must want to read and not have to read. It is full of details and sometimes can make you stop reading it but you will return to it. It is a good book to keep for a long time.
