By Brian Walker. 5" x 9", 108 pg, paperback. The book was banned during a period of political discord in China, and all copies were ordered to be burned. Were it not for the tradition of oral transmission of sacred scriptures from master to student, they would have been lost forever. Unlike other translations, Brian Walker's rendition of Lao Tzu's profound oral teachings, as recorded in the Hua Hu Ching, seems admirably clear and to the point.
