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.

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.
