The Laozi Daodejing Book

The Laozi, Daodejing is a standard 6"x9" small print paperback.
This title is also published as The Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching as a 8-1/2"x11" paperback version.

The Laozi, Daodejing (also published as The Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching) is a translation and commentary for 2015 and beyond. Unlike many other translations, this book's commentary invites the reader into the interpretive process. It provides the reader with a look into the visuals that make up key Chinese characters in order to assist the reader in understanding its practical philosophy of Realism. The 2500 year old Chinese text is not about rights and wrongs, nor is it about trying to change the world so that it suits you. It is about how we regard value and how this sense of value may, in turn, inform ourselves. It is about how adapting ourselves to the world as it exists may make the world a better place in which all can live.
It might best be regarded as
self-help philosophy.

     The Introduction
     The Chinese text

". . . While I had read parts of the Tao Te Ching, I had not read the entirety. This is an excellent book in that it shows the Tao Te Ching in the original language as well as literal and subjective interpretations and how to find your own meaning within. I am looking forward to reading and re-reading this for many years."
