I found daoism long before this book appeared and had a simple understanding of its path. Ming-Dao creates a lovely (sometimes overused) vision of living in the dao in this daily "meditation" book". I read it diligently when I first began my recovery from addiction and, with the fellowship's approved material, found an incredible harmony betwen the two. As I followed my path through the twelve steps, I realized that the daodejing was implicit in all the philosophies and values of the steps.
Later in recovery, I discovered that lacked discipline to refer to the text each day prior to or after my daily meditation sessions. I now enjoy a group of other folks in my fellowship who could not quite undertand the principle of a higher power. In daoism of course, one cannot explain the void, or the priciples of action non-action.
Ming-Dao does his best to give us reference material to recognize our own path in a stream of life. His poetic view of his own experiences and his world yield intricate and also mightly brushstrokes on the art implicit of dao.
I would not take this as the one and all book of daoism -- in fact many other texts should be added to your library in your discovery the ancient scriptures and how they have evolved to such a commercialized reading material.
