Description

The centuries-old wisdom of the Tao, as told through the profoundly wise and delightfully entertaining illustrations of Tsai Chih Chung.

In The Tao Speaks, Tsai Chih Chung brilliantly retells, through his enchanting and irreverently humorous cartoon panels, the two thousand-year-old text of Tao Te Ching, the inspiring classic upon which Taoism is based.

Attributed to the great Chinese philosopher Lao-tzu, the Tao Te Ching has attracted generations of followers from across the world to its simple tenets of modesty, peace, and realism. According to Lao-tzu, "If we are at peace with ourselves and the world around us, success will come unsought." Advocating poise, serenity, and complete assurance, Lao-tzu teaches men and women to work with nature rather than resist it.

The Tao Speaks offers the centuries-old wisdom of the Tao to modern readers searching for new ways to bring meaning to life. As with Tsai Chih Chung's previous books, the original Chinese notes are contained in the margins of each page as an aid to scholars and Chinese-speaking readers.

"Tsai Chih Chung's books are awe-inspiring. his line is elegant; his characters are sharply drawn; his humor is sly and appropriate; and his subject is profound. This is cartooning of the highest order." -- Larry Gonick, author of The Cartoon History Of The Universe, Volumes I and II.
