Taoism: The Parting of the Way
Called "a first-rate piece of work" by T. S. Eliot, this book offers a comprehensive discussion of Taoism, one of the world's major religions, as well as a study of the Tao te ching, the best known Taoist text, and Lao-tzu as a Taoist prototype.

I greatly enjoyed reading this book. It was insightful and gave me lots of reassurance about things I had assumed to be negative. This book is like a hidden secret, because it helps to unlock your understanding of the way in which things really are.
I just happened to open to page 172 I haven't actually read the book, BUT...The author completely missed the point of the essential concept of Non-being. If he doesn't understand this than he doesn't understand anything about Taoism. Non-being should tell you something about your mental concept of yourself, and the myriad of other 'things' out there.
