Tao Te Ching
Tao Te Ching - Toinette Lippe,Jane English,Gia-Fu Feng,Jacob Needleman,Laozi Beautiful, inspiring, special.

Carry it with me at all times and use it as my Guiding Book. The best ancient wisdom in its simplicity, in its beauty, in its wisdom. Must read for all!

Lao Tzu's Tao-Te Ching
Tao Te Ching - Laozi

This is an ancient book of poetry which is primarily aphoristic and philosophical/religious.  The book is the foundation of much of Chinese thought.  It has given rise to Daoism both the philosophy and the religion.  It is however so ambiguous that it needs interpretation.  The book does have positive theoretical tendencies which are similar to Buddhism and the Pre-Socratic philosophers.  Its the kind of book that should be read because of its extreme importance in Chinese thought.  It had tendencies to favour inaction and nonbeing theoretically speaking.  It, however, requires a lot of interpretation and is conducive to a lot of nonsensical mystical drivel as well as things of more interest.

It should be read because of its importance, but unless one takes it as a religious text then it is not really a coherent philosophy just in itself.

The Legend of Lao Tzu and the Tao Te Ching
The Legend of Lao Tzu and the Tao Te Ching - Demi

by Demi

 

The more I read of Demi the less I like her. This book was difficult to read (literally, who thought it would be a good idea to print the story in gold ink?), and I could have done without the twenty verses of the Tao Te Ching in the middle (I skipped most of them and probably won't return to this book to finish them).

Reading progress update: I've read 100%.
Lao Tzu : Tao Te Ching : A Book About the Way and the Power of the Way - Laozi,Ursula K. Le Guin,J.P. Seaton

Such a wonderful book. Not the best one (in my opinion) on the Tao Te Ching but a nice addition to my library :)
