Praise

“It would be hard to find a fresh approach to a text that ranks only behind the Bible as the most widely translated book in the world, but Star achieves that goal. . . . As fascinating to the casual scholar as it is for the serious student.” -NAPRA ReView “Jonathan Star’s Tao Te Ching achieves the essential: It clarifies the meaning of the text without in the slightest reducing its mystery.” -Jacob Needleman
