The most widely known and read Chinese classic in the West, the Tao Teh Ching is a series of insightful comments on life and nature. Part poetry, part paradox, always forceful and profound, the Tao Teh Ching has been leading its readers to expand their view of life since it was written over two thousand years ago.

The Tao Teh Ching teaches that the qualities of the enlightened sage or ideal ruler are identical with those of the perfected individual. This lucid translation demonstrates that these teachings are as useful in the arts of leadership as they are in developing a sense of balance and harmony in everyday life. John C. H. Wu has done a remarkable job rendering this difficult and subtle text into English while retaining the freshness and depth of the original. This edition features the Chinese text alongside the English translation.
