Pocket Taoist Wisdom Thomas Cleary


This is a great little book. It's tiny enough to carry around (pocket book) and I have brought it with me on several adventures. Great for quick reading. It contains translations for the Tao Te Ching, Chuang-tzu, Huai-nan-tzu, Wen-tzu, Tales of inner meaning, and Sayings of ancestor Lu. If you're unfamiliar with taoist or zen philosophy you could even regard it as a poetry book. It reaches those poetic and lofty heights that one must access to even begin an attempt at describing Tao. I'm very glad this is in my collection and I think it will be a companion to me for quite some time.
