Tao Te Ching: A New English Version (Perennial Classics) 

Paperback – September 5, 2006

Presents a new translation of the classic ""Book of the Way,"" a manual that describes the art of living.

In eighty-one brief chapters, Lao-tzu's Tao Te Ching, or Book of the Way, provides advice that imparts balance and perspective, a serene and generous spirit, and teaches us how to work for the good with the effortless skill that comes from being in accord with the Tao—the basic principle of the universe.

Stephen Mitchell's bestselling version has been widely acclaimed as a gift to contemporary culture.


“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)
