    Dr. Wayne W. Dyer is an internationally renowned author and speaker in the field of self-development. He has written numerous bestselling books and has created a number of audios and videos. He has appeared on thousands of television and radio programs, including The Today Show and Oprah.

    Five hundred years before the birth of Jesus, a God-realized being named Lao-tzu in ancient China dictated 81 verses, which are regarded by many as the ultimate commentary on the nature of our existence. The classic text of these 81 verses, called the Tao Te Ching or the Great Way, offers advice and guidance that is balanced, moral, spiritual, and always concerned with working for the good.

    In this book,Dr. Wayne W. Dyer has reviewed hundreds of translations of the Tao Te Ching and has written 81 distinct essays on how to apply the ancient wisdom of Lao-tzu to today’s modern world. This work contains the entire 81 verses of the Tao, compiled from Wayne’s researching of 12 of the most well-respected translations of text that have survived for more than 25 centuries. Each chapter is designed for actually living the Tao or the Great Way today. Some of the chapter titles are “Living with Flexibility,” “Living Without Enemies,” and “Living by Letting Go.” Each of the 81 brief chapters focuses on living the Tao and concludes with a section called “Doing the Tao Now.”

    Wayne spent one entire year reading, researching, and meditating on Lao-tzu’s messages, practicing them each day and ultimately writing down these essays as he felt Lao-tzu wanted you to know them.

    This is a work to be read slowly, one essay a day. As Wayne says, “This is a book that will forever change the way you look at your life, and the result will be that you’ll live in a new world aligned with nature. Writing this book changed me forever, too. I now live in accord with the natural world and feel the greatest sense of peace I’ve ever experienced. I’m so proud to present this interpretation of the Tao Te Ching, and offer the same opportunity for change that it has brought me.”

    • Interesting read....

      This was a book that was required for a women's studies course for me. The reason I say I would not recommend is simply since it is an odd take on life dynamics and spiritual beliefs. It could strike certain religious people as offensive. It is a critical thinking book that offers awesome insight, but it is different and demands your full attention and thought. If you lack in mental patience this is not the self-help book for you. Its not as much inspiring as it is life-changing if truly applied. I adore this author and this book, but it is not for everyone. If your open-minded and seeking true fulfillment I do recommend.

      This book can highly recommended so I thought I would check it out. It's not a book to sit down and read cover to cover as it tells you. You pick it up each day or as you can and try to learn from yourself and how you can change. If you're ready to change the way you look at life and be open to those changes I would highly recommend. Wisdom is knowing I am nothing, love is knowing I am everything, and between the two my life moves.
