That was my reaction upon reading Derek Lin's The Tao of Daily Life: The Mysteries of the Orient Revealed The Joys of Inner Harmony Found The Path to Enlightenment Illuminated. "Again, again!" What a delightful and profound book. I read through it once, and was so taken with its wisdom that I immediately started over again. I typically read one chapter before going to bed, and it is a wonderful way for Taoist philosophy to seep into the unconscious mind.
Each chapter tells a story from the Taoist tradition, or quotes from the Tao Te Ching (but without citing the sources -- a pet peeve!) and then Lin expounds and explains how it relates to everyday life. Unpretentious, helpful, wise writing. Get this book.
