Summary

Wise yet worldly, spiritual yet practical, the Tao Te Ching is beloved by seekers all the world over. This new edition features a lucid, poetic translation that makes the Tao Te Ching accessible to contemporary listeners.

The Tao Te Ching is a series of meditations on the mysterious nature of the Tao - the way, the guiding light, the very source of all existence. According to Lao Tzu (a name meaning "the old master"), the Tao is found where we would least expect it - not in the strong but in the weak; not in speech but in silence; not in doing but in "not-doing".

Sound is not clear.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I enjoyed reading this, and thought it would be nice to listen to while walking or working in the kitchen. It is just barely possible to understand on the IPad speaker at low volume. Not possible to understand at all on Bose speaker at room volume. I haven’t tried it with blue tooth earphones and iPhone but I have other things to listen to while walking.

Would you be willing to try another one of Amanda Brewer’s performances?

No, probably not.

Was Tao Te Ching worth the listening time?

Would be with good sound quality.

True words written from a truly spiritual depth.

Not only is this one of the most spiritually resonant writings I’ve ever read, it’s also beautifully narrated! A must have for any seeker.

Simple and short yet very profound

Written and spoken with a clarity that cuts straight through and reveals truth in form. I could easily listen through this again.
