Welch starts with an analysis of the main metaphor in the Tao Te Ching, then moves on to a historical look at how taoism changed and morphed in Chinese society, and ends with a chapter on what Laozi might say to Americans today. For me, the explanation of the metaphors and seeing those metaphors contrasted to the dominant philosophy around me were the most valuable parts of the book. ( )
