The Gate of All Marvelous Things
A Guide to Reading the Tao Te Ching
By Gregory Richter. 8.5" x 11", 153 pages, paperback. Tao Te Ching is one of the most difficult to translate without distorting the original thought. The author does a great service to students of Chinese and Eastern Philosophy by providing the original text of the Tao Te Ching with pinyin romanization, a character-by-character gloss in English and Chinese, and a new translation.
