The most translated book in the world after the Bible, the Tao Te Ching, or “Book of the Tao,” is a guide to cultivating a life of peace, serenity, and compassion. Through aphorisms and parable, it leads readers toward the Tao, or the “Way”: harmony with the life force of the universe. Traditionally attributed to Lao-tzu, a Chinese philosopher thought to have been a contemporary of Confucius, it is the essential text of Taoism, one of the three major religions of ancient China.
Well put together but much is over my head

Frustrating to listen to, this was my first try at Tao de Ching. The book repeats itself over and over for each verse, with a number of interpretations saying the same thing. I’m feeling like it’s wasting my time and I’m going to be more careful choosing another version. It might have been better in print.
