More English versions. Doug, the owner, lets his employees borrow books from the inventory, on the principle that you can sell books better if you know them better, and that's how I discovered the Tao Te Ching (or TTC, as I'll abbreviate it from now on). Oh, I knew about the book beforehand. I knew it existed, anyway, and I knew it was a classic of Eastern philosophy. But that's all I knew.

An alternative view - teapotmonk. com: Of all the classic versions that have been written of the TAO TE CHING - the most intriguing, contemporary and perhaps useful is Ron Hogan's Getting Right With the Tao. I've been a fan of this book since its release and recommend anyone interested in Taoism to GET A COPY. What characterises this Tao Te Ching is that Ron presents an interpretation relevant to the time and culture in which it is being read. So as a tribute, here is my 2 minutes - a little music, a little imagery and a little bit of not taking myself to seriously.

The text's authorship, date of composition and date of compilation are debated. The oldest excavated portion dates back to the late 4th century BC, but modern scholarship dates other parts of the text as having been written-or at least compiled-later than the earliest portions of the Zhuangzi.

Getting Right With Tao is a rendition of the Tao Te Ching, one of the foundational texts of philosophical taoism. I came across Ron Hogan's Getting Right With Tao by chance many moons ago and instantly fell in love with it. At the time I was an avid student of philosophical daoism and had read quite a few translations, renditions, etc. The most earthy version up until that time for me was Witter Bynner's take. Ron's version rates right up there with it. Getting Right With Tao has the flavor of poetry in modern day language. I can imagine a beat poet standing up in a coffee shop and reciting from it -- or Jesus on the Sermon on the Mount. There is a spiritual feel to this rendition that is lacking in some of the literal translations. It's fun, and it's an excellent way to introduce friends to Taoism.

I can honestly say that I've read Ron Hogan's version of the Tao Te Ching at least a good dozen times, and that was before he even came out with the physical book.

I personally have read probably somewhere in the order of 8-10 different translations of the Tao Te Ching, and to be quite honest none of them speak to the wisdom of Taoist ideals as simply or clearly as "Getting Right with Tao" does. This book reminds us that there is no expiration date on good advice, and ancient wisdom is still applicable, sometimes it just needs some help being conveyed to the masses.

True this isn't a word for word translation from Chinese to English of the Tao Te Ching, but in my opinion it is a better kind of translation, it translates ancient wisdom into modern day wisdom.

For anybody who is remotely interested in learning about the wisdom Taoism has to offer I'd recommend reading this book. It has influenced me not only in my own path to learning about the Tao but has also been a huge inspiration for me in my writing on my own site about living Taoist ideals in modern day life.

In short I honestly can't recommend this book enough, if you're at all interested in Taoism, eastern philosophy, or just general wisdom then this is a book you can't miss.

No, this is not the Tao Te Ching (or Daodejing for you hardcore enthusiasts). What it is, though, is Mr. Hogan's take on what the Tao Te Ching means.

Imagine Quentin Tarantino or the Beach Boys writing a version of the Tao Te Ching and you have Getting Right with Tao.

This is a modern interpretation, not a scholastic translation, and in a world full of translations from academics and poets Mr. Hogan's take makes greatly needed sense out of a timeless classic. Chinese is hard enough to understand...English translations shouldn't be hard to understand either.

For Mr. Hogan to go from the literal Chinese-to-English translation of the opening of the Tao Te Ching ("Tao can Tao not true Tao") to "If you can talk about it, it ain't Tao" shows his ability to transmit the SPIRIT of the Tao Te Ching, rather than the LETTER, to the reader; an ability unfortunately lost on the more academic authors on the subject.

As someone who printed Mr. Hogan's original PDF file and cut and bound a primitive and private copy of the original work years ago, I am very excited that Getting Right with Tao is finally out in official print. This book would make an excellent addition to any library.

this is probably the fifth copy of this book that I have purchased for friends or loved ones. Even if you aren't a Buddhist, it can be viewed as a wonderful book of meditations, written for ordinary people by an ordinary guy.

In the great tradition of Taoist sages like Lao Tzu, Chung Tzu and Lieh Tzu this work is filled with practical advice, and with humour. I read the PDF about 2 years ago and was mesmerised. This book puts a smile on my face every time you read a passage. Like a daily meditation it brings focus to the chaos in the world.
Wow. Tao.

The renowned set of 81 practical paradoxes written in an American vernacular. The book takes minutes to read and a lifetime to master. Ron Hogan has done something right, for several lines made me burst out laughing, and others I am still pondering. Recommended.
