`What is rooted is easy to nourish

What is recent is easy to correct'

Lao Tzu's Tao Te Ching (The Book of the Way) is the classic manual on the art of living. In 81 short, poetic chapters, the book looks at the basic predicament of being alive and teaches how to work for the good with the effortless skill that comes from being in accord with the Tao, or the basic principle of the universe.

Stephen Mitchell's acclaimed translation is accompanied by ancient Chinese paintings that beautifully reflect Lao Tzu's timeless words.

An illustrated edition of one of the most widely translated texts in the world.

Features the best of classical Chinese painting

A modern, accessible translation which reflects

the poetry of Lao Tzu's words.

`Beautiful and accessible; the English, as 'fluid

as melting ice,' is a joy to read throughout' The New Republic.

`I have read many translations of this ancient text but Mitchell's is by far the best.'
James Frey, author of A Million Little Pieces.'
