About the Author
Affectionately called the “father of motivation” by his fans, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer was an internationally renowned author, speaker, and pioneer in the field of self-development. Over the four decades of his career, he wrote more than 40 books (21 of which became New York Times bestsellers), created numerous audio programs and videos, and appeared on thousands of television and radio shows. His books Manifest Your Destiny, Wisdom of the Ages, There’s a Spiritual Solution to Every Problem, and the New York Times bestsellers 10 Secrets for Success and Inner Peace, The Power of Intention, Inspiration, Change Your Thoughts—Change Your Life, Excuses Begone!, Wishes Fulfilled, and I Can See Clearly Now were all featured as National Public Television specials.
Wayne held a doctorate in educational counseling from Wayne State University, had been an associate professor at St. John’s University in New York, and honored a lifetime commitment to learning and finding the Higher Self. In 2015, he left his body, returning to Infinite Source to embark on his next adventure.

I am deeply grateful for his teachings, especially "How to be a No Limit Person", which may have possibly saved my life. But this particular book brings it all together in the most concise way to date... it's all how we think of things. Really. From some viewpoints in my life I rejected that concept with my entire being... but years give us a perspective that can only come with time. If you think that's a crazy idea now, just try it on for size, trusting those of us who have traveled longer and further... and give it some consideration.
This book is very inspiring, it reviews each chapter of the Tao in only 2-3 pages. Short, concise and easy to understand. Loved the book, still studying daily.
Apparently, he took time off and went to Hawaii or some other island paradise to decompress.
He read his way through the Tao Te Ching one chapter a day, thought about it, then sat down and wrote something in between an interpretation, an analysis, and a reflective essay. (It is not easy to come up in between three things without the use of a Venn diagram, but he did.)
This is a very well written work that addresses fresh insights and efficient responses to the human condition.
The philosophy of the Tao is one half of the two views China developed on how to live. Obviously, the other stands in total opposition to the Taolsm. (Tao says, "fugedabowdit." Confucious says,"Yo, Beeahch! Do something.)
Sometimes a new bottle releases flavors missed before. This is a surprisingly very good book. Nudge...nudge. Buy it!
Having given the praise, I want to caveat the book by noting that if you are a Taoist scholar (I am not, though I studied it some nearly a decade ago), Dr. Dyer's book will read like a Children's Bible or New Age Christianity to the traditional Christian. The interpretations are very modern, Western and organic. The practices are relatively simple, and the lessons somewhat superficial. That doesn't diminish their value to the average reader, but this isn't a Taoist text in any traditional sense.
An interesting format and interpretation of the Tao for the modern American self-help reader.
