Lao-Tzu, also known as Laozi was a Chinese philosopher believed to have lived in the 6th century BCE and is credited with writing the Tao-Te-Ching which centers around the idea that the way of virtue lies in simplicity and a recognition of a natural, universal force known as the Tao. He is traditionally regarded as the founder of Taoism. This book is a compilation of his most profound writings translated directly from ancient Chinese texts. - Summary by Nemo (1 hr 16 min)

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.
