Review quote

Stephen Mitchell's rendition fo the Tao Te Ching comes as close to being definitive for our time as any I can imagine. It embodies the virtues its translator credits to the Chinese original: a gemlike lucidity that is radiant with humor, grace, largeheartedness, and deep wisdom.--Huston Smith, author of "The Religions of Man"
