"A handy pocket Daoism reader. Selections from the most popular classics of ancient Daoism, including the Daodejing, Zhuangzi, Huainanzi, and Wenzi. Also translated are wonderful Daoist fables and stories from the "Tales of Inner Meaning" and a selection of short teachings of the famed Daoist patriarch Ancestor Lu, one of the great figures of early Daoism."
"Of the 33 chapters in the original text, poet Sam Hamill and scholar J.P. Seaton render 19 completely and 3 partially into a naturally flowing English idiom that captures the vibrancy, humor, and playful sincerity of Zhuangzi's language."
"The Liezi (4th century CE) ranks with the Laozi and Zhuangzi as one of the most eloquent and influential expositions of Daoist philosophy. It is somewhat darker tone, and yet punctuated with a most extraordinary humor. A definitive translation by A.C. Graham, who was one of the world's most distinguished Sinologists."
"Liu I-ming (b. 1737) was a Daoist adept and a scholar of Buddhism and Confucianism. I-Ming wrote this collection of 142 meditations on the Dao in 1816. Using natural and mythical phenomena he illustrates in simple language the principles and practice of the Dao as the whole of life."
