Publisher's Summary

For the first time, the great depth and diversity of Taoist spirituality is introduced in a single, accessible manual. Taoism, known widely today through the teachings of the classic Tao Te Ching and the practices of t'ai chi and feng-shui, is less known for its unique traditions of meditation, physical training, magical practice, and internal alchemy. Covering all of the most important texts, figures, and events, this essential guide illuminates Taoism's extraordinarily rich history and remarkable variety of practice. A comprehensive bibliography for further study completes this valuable reference work.

Informative

There is a lot of historical information, but it is presented in a very dry biographical manner, not exactly an exciting read but full of accurate information.

Fantastic

A great intro into Daoism, and its many areas. It's also really nice to have someone narrating that actually speaks Chinese, it makes a big difference.

Great book, terrible recitation

I would have enjoyed this book - which I thought was highly informative and mind-expanding, if a tad rushed and slightly inaccurate in places - hugely if the narration had not been robotic, monotone, and tedium-inducing almost to the point of tears. Frankly, I cannot understand why the narrator has a job as a voice actress. It may as well have been read by a computer. What a terrible shame and waste of time - I would have much preferred to have read it instead.
