Publisher's Summary

Brilliant, mystical, pragmatic and witty, some have called Chuang Tsu the world's first anarchist. Even 2,000 years after his death, this provocative Taoist text remains in the forefront of ancient Chinese philosophical study. A companion to the Tao Te Ching, Chuang Tsu: Inner Chapters is a spiritual classic in its own right and a source book second only to the Tao Te Ching in importance in the Taoist canon. The sublime prose serves as a profound and paradoxical commentary to the Tao Te Ching.

Supreme audiobook!

Would you listen to Chuang Tsu again? Why?

The performance is worth a million dollars. The guy really put a lot of energy into the act and you can tell just from the sample. The chinese language and music cuts are excellent and everything about the audio is perfect. Of course Chuang Tsu is an amazingly fun philosopher also.


What other book might you compare Chuang Tsu to and why?

I think I own all of the audio books for Lao Tsu's Tao De Ching and I say narration by Jacob Needleman is best and I would recommend it to anyone who is getting into this taoist stuff.
