The most translated book in the world, next to the Bible, is the Tao Te Ching. Great wisdom can be found on every page. Lao Tzu is believed to have written the text in China in the sixth century BCE. It forms the basis for Taoism, one of the world's great wisdom traditions. In addition to being considered one of the best books ever written, it is also one of the easiest to read. One of the few women to offer a translation is Mears, who seems to add a more intuitive or sensitive touch. She has created a beautifully rendered translation that deserves to be shared and preserved for generations to come.
