I'm glad to hear of you interest in the Tao. It's physical expression is in
the 'martial art' of Tai Chi. It's not really a book that can be just picked
up and read. You have to absorb yourself in it and spend awhile on each
passage to ascertain your interpretation. No need to buy the book, I've seen
it available on the Net. There are several translations, all different to
some degree. Try it - you'll like it. Jim Martin
