Beautifully produced… classic work which examines the Chinese philosophy of Tao, with fine examples of Chinese calligraphy. --Yoga & Health

Watts begins with scholarship and intellect and proceeds with art and eloquence to the frontiers of the spirit… This is a profound and worthy work, left by a teacher to echo and re-echo. --Los Angeles Times
