“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)


"Mitchell's rendition of the "Tao Te Ching comes as close to being definitive for our time as any I can imagine. It embodies the virtues its translator credits to the Chinese original: a gemlike lucidity that is radiant with humor, grace, largeheartedness, and deep wisdom."-- Huston Smith, author of "The Religions of Man""Mitchell's great talent is to communicate with the profound simplicity utterly appropriate for this task. The obscure has been made transparent and available."-- "Common Boundary""Beautiful and accessible; the English, as 'fluid as melting ice, ' is a joy to read throughout."-- "The New Republic"

5.0 von 5 Sternen my "desert island" book 21. Juli 2000
I'm indecisive about books 2 through 10 I'd like to have on a desert island, but this book has been numero uno for some time. This is a great translation of a great work. Each page can be read in a minute, or an hour, or a day. It's very compact, so it's very likely to be with me if I actually *am* stranded on a desert island, or in an airport, or waiting for a meeting happen. Less is more.
Buy two; give one away. Soon you'll be buying more to give away.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Like Massage for the Mind 7. November 2000
Von Ein Kunde
I find this reading of the Tao Te Ching extremely meditative and relaxing. I have shared the tapes with dozens of other people and it is the only version that ever made sense to me. The tone of Stephen Mitchell's voice is comforting, he doesn't just read the text, he feels it & breathes it. Highly recommended.

Von D. Hunter
Everytime modern life starts eating at me... I take moment to glance in one of a select few books. One is Miyamoto Musashi's "book of Five Rings", one is "Bushido, the warrior's code" by Inazo Nitobe, and the last is the Tao Te Ching.
The Tao that can be explained... is not the true Tao, so I won't try to explain it, just that is can add a deeper, although more simplistic meaning to your life.
I study, but do not pretend to understand... the book's meaning changes for every new level of knowledge you gain. The sayings possess increadable depth, and I've found a few that have changed my life, as I increase my knowledge of the martial arts... one in particular comes to mind.
"If a violent man... does not come to a violent end. I choose him to teach me." -Lao Tzu.
I'd suggest obtaining a copy of this book, it can only help you...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wisdom and Poetry Divinely Intertwined 17. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I have only read one other version of the Tao Te Ching. The other was very pretty and well respected. It also made very little sense, was sexist, and had little if anything to do with my life. Stephen Mitchell, after 14 years of Zen training, has brought this amazing and beautiful work into our times. With non-sexist language and beautifully illustrating examples, he shows the modern westerner how to truly comprehend and embrace this wise and simple philosophy. Mitchell sometimes strays from the literal translation, but always for the better, and never without letting the reader know. His notes in the back are amazingly insightful and include the literal translations of the few parts he's changed. I read from this amazing and beautiful book every day.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Great Translation of Lao-tzu and Taoism 21. Mai 2000
Taoism is a very interesting Chinese religion/philosophy. Eastern religion is very different from Western Religion. Rather than focusing on God and mans relationship with God, many of the Eastern Religions are more philosophical and advocate a way of life. This is why many people in East Asia practice elements of all of these religions and in many cases do not even know they are. It is also with this in mind that Buddhism became to popular in China and other parts of Asia. Buddhism unlike Taoism or Confucianism dealt with an afterlife.
Well sorry for the lecture, in terms of Taoism I like this translation very much. I found it well presented and very easy to follow. Taoism and the whole idea of the way, Ying and Yang, balance and harmony with nature too me is one of the most interesting of the world's religions. Anyone who would like to read about this philosophy/religion would enjoy this book.
It is food for thought.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An unsettling comfort 11. Mai 2000
In December of 1996 I drove over 500 miles to have Christmas with my recently widowed mother. The paradoxes of my father's death were shapeless in my mind. A friend gave me a cassette tape of Stephen Mitchell reading his translation of the Tao Te Ching and it helped me understand the light that comes from dark, the wisdom that comes from not knowing. I then bought the print version. When teaching a course in the literary genre of comedy, a literary genre focused upon wholeness and healing, I read from Mitchell's translation of the Tao each day to open class, until my students had heard the entire book by the end of the course. When dealing with contrariety in comedy, with paradox, with mirth and its healing, its unifying strength, I thing the Tao worked in a sublime way to help my students more deeply understand the comic dimensions of their lives and the world around them. I am deeply indebted to Mitchell's work.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good translation.. 23. März 2000
I picked Stephen Mitchell's version of the Tao Te Ching after reading the Feng-English translation.
After reading some of the more negative reviews I wasn't sure what to expect, but I ended up being pleasantly surprised.
This version is easy to read and understand, clearing up the more esoteric passages from the traditional translations, without diluting the underlying meaning and inspiration.
I still prefer the Feng-English translation for it's poetic style and mysticism, but Mitchell's version is still ideal to enjoy and ponder the meaning of the Tao.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Finger Pointing to The Moon... 28. Februar 2000
I would never be able to tell you if this translation is accurate or not, as Chinese is not one of my known languages...however, I have read several other translations and find this one mystical, poetic, with a touch of Zen, and I find myself turning to it often, finding new meanings in this little book...

I have read this book at least half a dozen times and the book becomes more elusive with each reading. In any case I want to pose a contrarian hypothesis. Lesen Sie weiter...

I don't think Lao Tzu intended his words to be taken as a Bible of rigid truths; a list of canons describing "The Way." Taoism transcends all words, that's the point! Lesen Sie weiter...
