The Tao Te Ching: A New Translation with Commentary

by: Lao Tzu

Publisher: Paragon House Publishers ()

$16.95

Staff Pick by comrade: Tom C.

Excellent, much respected translation and commentary. The commentary is clear and unusually thoughtful, though with a Buddhist slant. The text is well organized into sections of general and specific interpretations, whichever you're after.
