Praise for Derek Lin s books:
The Tao of Joy Every Day:
The book offers up easily digestible wisdom for when you need a quick bit of inspiration. It is a great way to start the day, and it's small size makes it ideal for a nightstand book. It's short but powerful entries are great for settling the mind before bedtime, or on nights when you can't sleep. It's a great addition to any Eastern wisdom book collection.

The Tao of Daily Life:
Winner: Best Spirituality/ Alternative ScienceBook (The Coalition of Visionary Resources COVR Awards)
This book has given me a large amount of understanding and inspiration in my own life. It is well written so that those of any religion (or lack of) can greatly benefit from its wisdom. I would put this book at the top of the list for anyone wanting to help move past the daily trivialities and frustrations that an inhibit our lives. This is also a perfect companion to applying the Tao Te Ching to the daily life.
