Description


The Way is a refreshing new version of an ancient Chinese guide to leading a harmonious life. The author has immersed himself in a lifetime of philosophical studies and a career producing historical documentary films for the BBC and PBS. His broad experience has been applied to developing this English language adaptation of The Way; distilling the meaning and essence of the original.

This concise treatise presents a world view that corresponds with the essential foundations of many spiritual and philosophical teachings.
