Carole Boyd and John Rowe alternate reading chapters of this Taoist classic. Boyd's voice is gently seductive, clearly female, meticulously precise, yet subtly attentive to the nuances of this fourth-century BC poetry. Rowe's voice, by contrast, is clearly male in its directness, yet soothing, gentle, and thoughtful. These two become the perfect vehicle to convey the balanced wisdom of the sage and the modest guidance given to those who direct the affairs of men. But readers unfamiliar with the complexity and simplicity of this little book beware: Lau's translation is poetic--spare and unadorned, yet replete with the clarifying notes that this audiobook cannot include. The only guidance given here is Lao Tzu's. P.E.F. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
