The country music's laid-back legend shares his lessons from a lifetime of challenges. This is an inspiring and entertaining book of "Willie wisdom" loosely based on the principles of the Chinese philosophy of the Tao Te Ching. Born in small-town Texas during the Great Depression, Willie Nelson was raised to believe in helping his neighbours and living without pretence. After many gruelling years as a poorly-paid songwriter (often watching his work become a gold mine for other performers), Willie found his voice - the gentle but unmistakably honest sound that has made him an American icon. Now the master of harmonisation has created a guide to finding balance in everyday life. Featuring vignettes from each chapter of his 70-plus years (along with many of his favourite jokes), "The Tao of Willie" captures the Willie view on money, love, religion, cowboys and all the essential Nelson topics.Gently based on the principles of Tao Te Ching, which Willie has admired and followed for much of his adult life, this inspiring and entertaining book of Willie wisdom takes readers from his roadhouse days, when he united redneck rockers with straitlaced country music fans, to the megasized benefit concerts and environmentalism that define his boundless heart. Willie's wisdom sparkles with depth and clarity - like a one-on-one conversation with the sage himself.
