Lao-tzu, the legendary sage of ancient China, is traditionally considered to be the author of the "Tao Te Ching, "one of the most popular classics of world literature. Now Lao-tzu's further teachings on the Tao, or Way, are presented here in the first English translation of the Chinese text known as the "Wen-tzu." Although previously ignored by Western scholars, the "Wen-tzu" has long been revered by the Chinese as one of the great classics of ancient Taoism. In it, Lao-tzu shows that the cultivation of simplicity and spontaneity is essential to both the enlightened individual and the wise leader. This timeless work will appeal to a broad audience of contemporary readers who have come to consider Lao-tzu's "Tao Te Ching " a classic on the art of living.
