Stephen Mitchell The Second Book of the Tao

Bestselling author and translator Stephen Mitchell reads from and discusses his new book The Second Book of the Tao. The most widely translated book in world literature after the Bible, Lao-tzu’s Tao Te Ching, or Book of the Way, is the classic manual on the art of living. Following the phenomenal success of his own version of the Tao Te Ching, Mitchell has composed this innovative new book drawn from the work of Lao-tzu’s disciple Chuang-tzu and Confucius’s grandson Tzu-ssu. He has selected the freshest, clearest teachings from these two great students of the Tao and adapted them into versions that reveal the poetry, depth, and humor of the original texts with a thrilling new power.

($25.95) Penguin ISBN #1-59420-203-6. You can visit Stephen Mitchell’s official web site as well.

    I purchased Steven Mitchell’s powerful translation of the Tao solely based on the recommendation of one of my all time favorite authors, Wayne Dyer. I was very disheartened to hear Steven Mitchell filed a lawsuit against Dyer. I am sure I would never have come upon his work, let alone purchased the book, had it not been for Dr. Dyer. I think that may be true for a lot of people. I realize we live in a litigious society but I wish our scholars and leaders would have a more creative way of dealing with these types of problems.
