Stephen Mitchell breathes new life into the profound wisdom of the Tao Te Ching by fashioning a "sequel" the author has amalgamated by choosing selected writings of two famous students of the original Tao teachings. After each brief passage Mitchell translated from original source material, he adds a wonderful poetic commentary resulting in an added layer of meaning and wisdom. If you like the Tao Te Ching, do yourself a favor and buy this book!
