This is such an important work in the area of philosophy and I wanted to check out this new edition. The illustrations are gorgeous and I loved the organization, which made the concepts easy to understand.
I may be prejudiced because I got a minor in East Asian Studies but I think everyone should read this. It's short enough and well written enough that almost anyone could enjoy it.
Thanks to NetGalley for letting me read this

I was looking for a new copy of Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu to replace my third, very worn out paper copy and and Amber Books certainly did not disappoint. The book is beautifully presented with ink and wash illustrations throughout. A really nice touch is the Shufa (calligraphy) and translation for each text.

The introduction is clear and concise, and the most beautiful part for me is one of my favourite phrases "They are no more right or wrong than many others [sic] That is part and parcel of the enigma of this extraordinary work"

Should you have an interest in eastern philosophy, belief or practice, this is a wonderful copy to add to your collection and I shall certainly be getting a physical copy when published

Thank you to Netgalley and the wonderful Amber Books Ltd for this stunning ARC. My review is left voluntarily and all opinions are my own
