Review: Wandering on the Way: Early Taoist Tales and Parables of Chuang Tzu

用戶評語  - John Rivera - Goodreads

One of the finest translation and an absolute must read for those interested in Taoism and Confucianism alike. This perhaps remains my favorite book to "pick at," after having read it, for years. I love being able to open it to a random place and enjoy what I find again. 閱讀評論全文
