Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu: A Twenty-first Century English Interpretation by Jerome by Jerome Dirnberger
Lao Tzu's 6th century BCE Tao Te Ching interpreted to encompass today's environment.

TAO TE CHING (dow deh jing) can be translated as Book (Ching) of the Way (Tao), chapters 137, and Virtue (Te), chapters 3881. It was written over twenty-five hundred years ago by Lao Tzu who is known as an "archivist for a Chinese kingdom." Lao Tzu is translated to mean "Old Master" and is not a proper name.

This publication is an interpretation not a translation. It is my interpretation. There are many other versions of Tao Te Ching written. The original uses images and concepts that can have several meanings as language has changed over the centuries. I am trying to accurately interpret the original ideas, but it is up to the reader to ponder my interpretations and draw his or her own conclusions. An exercise I recommend is writing your own Tao Te Ching. The purpose of my work is to stimulate critical thinking. --Jerome Dirnberger
