I was listening to this as part of a wind down ritual in the evening, and the reader really made it work for this purpose. The sound quality is good, although not perfect. The intrusive add in the middle disturbed me. The sayings themselves have a promise of great depth. That's all I can say as of now in my journey to learn what man has had to say.

Well read by Nemo. The book itself deserved the four stars. I'm still trying to grasp the Tao as something outside if myself, it speaks of heaven and external forces. More study is needed. Thank you Nemo.

The sudden appearance of tawdry advertising is intrusive and disgusting. It makes we want to abandon Libravox
