Working with the literal translation from Paul Carus and consulting dozens of other translations into English, German, and French, and distilling further insight from 14 years of Zen training, Mitchell renders a free translation of this great classic that evokes the clarity and spirit of the original Chinese text.

Praise for Tao Te Ching

“[This translation] comes as close to being definitive for our time as any I can imagine.”

-Hudson Smith

“Beautiful and accessible; the English, ‘as fluid as melting ice,’ is a joy to read throughout.”

-New Republic

“Mitchell’s great talent is to communicate with the profound simplicity utterly appropriate for this task. The obscure has been made transparent and available.”

-Common Boundary
