"The true power of the Tao Te Ching," Hogan says, "isn't the poetic language but the practical wisdom--Lao Tzu's guidelines for how to live an authentic life, one day at a time. That's what I aimed for."
More than 100,000 readers downloaded the first version of the book since Hogan posted it online in early 2004, but people always wanted to know: Would there ever be a print version? Finally, after learning about the launch of Channel V Books, Hogan decided to take the plunge, taking advantage of the company's flexibility and speed, which let him revise, write a new foreword and afterword, and still produce a finished book in 10 weeks. The result is an elegant, concise book that reexamines the big questions: What does it mean to be alive? What do you want out of life? With a unique voice and incisive style, Hogan gets right to what matters.
Getting Right with Tao includes an interactive component that adds even more value to the book: Hogan has tucked, in the Afterword, a link to a newsletter--exclusively for readers of Getting Right with Tao--that will tackle the questions the Tao raises, with a focus on personal and professional development. He explains, "I'm very excited about the newsletter that will be emerging. I'm still deeply engaged with the whole subject of personal motivation and achievement, and I look forward to getting into a conversation with readers as I continue to consider the questions that can change our lives."
Getting Right With Tao is a rendition of the Tao Te Ching, one of the foundational texts of philosophical taoism. Read morePublished on May 1, 2013 by Ms_Jade_Li
