The Parent's Tao Te Ching


This is my first popular study of The Tao Te Ching. It emerged from my own joys and trials as a parent and has been in print for over twenty years now. It received a sales boost about fifteen years ago when Oprah Winfrey recommended it to her readers in her magazine. It remains my best-selling work.


"William Martin shows how the universal lessons of Taoism can be applied to parenthood. In the process, he not only sheds light on the most sacred of tasks we face, but he also works to bring peace and understanding to a coming generation." -- Deng Ming-Dao, author of The Chronicles of Tao, 365 Tao and Everyday Tao
