Mitchell selects readings from Lao-Tzu's disciple Chuang-tzu and from Tzu-ssu, the grandson of Confucius, and provides commentary on each reading. Approaching each reading with a tone of respect and reverence, he offers clear commentary that is simply presented. Sometimes he asks questions and relates the readings to modern life. Each of the 64 chapters is short and can be heard independent of the others—yet all are connected through the theme of living in harmony. Mitchell is easy to listen to, and his narration is gentle, well paced, and straightforward. His understated approach to both his writing and his narration results in a compact tool for meditation or introspection. J.E.M. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2010]
