This is a refreshing alternative to the usual deep, philosophical expositions on Taoism. It is a well-developed manual of how one can live a good life as defined by the tenets of Taoism. The author wonderfully blends the philosophy of Taoism with discussions on exercise, diet, sex, lifelong learning, discipline, nonviolence, and many other topics. In addition to being wide in scope, this book is most remarkable for its tone. Written in the form of a master speaking to a student, its lessons are expounded in a quiet, personal manner. All in all, a good introduction of the everyday practice of Taoism for the lay reader. Recommended for general religion collections.
