Chuang Tzu – Genius of the Absurd

Now here’s a book that’s apparently right down my alley…the whole complete collected writings of Chinese mega-Taoist Chuang Tzu – had to get the “good vibes” ACE 1971 version (via James Legge and Clae Waltham) because it’s pocket-size and built for speed reading.

I’ve heard (literally) good things about Chuang Tzu very recently (seek out Alan Watts and his kick-ass “Wisdom of the Ridiculous” lecture) and am puzzled as to why it took me until now to figure out I should read this guy. Have already finished the short introduction and am ready to plow full-bore (boar) into this obviously bitchin’ book.

How now paperback Tao?

    Brilliant book. Read it years ago and the copy you’re holding seems to be exactly the same edition I have. Not a book you will read once and forget, you will keep going back to it for years to come. Enjoy!
