An evocative and poetic new translation of this great ancient treasure with insightful and illuminating commentary, Ralph Alan Dale's book has captured the beauty and essence of this spiritual masterpiece. He translates Tao as 'the Great Integrity', that is the return to holism, honesty and creativity; our harmony with each other, with the environment and indeed within ourselves. We are perhaps the first generation in the 2500 years since this inspirational book was written, to fully appreciate the words and their message. It resonates with our 21st century hopes, dreams and new capacities as though Lao Tzu had written this remarkable book only for us.
I own over 40 versions of the Tao Te Ching. There is only one that elucidates this timeless wisdom for the modern age with such vision, compassion and hope for the future. This is the one. - Mark Johnson, Founder and Director of the Integral Tao Centers of New York, New Mexico and California
This is an extraordinary book, enlightening and insightful in personal and social realms. Many readers will value it because of the new meaning it gives to their lives. Dr. Dale's work is, in fact, a treasure for today and for the future. - Milton Schwebel, Ph.D., Prof. Emeritus of Psychology, Prof. Psychology, Rutgers.
