The Tao Te Ching, Daodejing, or Dao De Jing, also simply referred to as the Laozi is a Chinese classic text. According to tradition, it was written around 6th century BC by the sage Laozi (or Lao Tzu, literally meaning "Old Master"), a record-keeper at the Zhou dynasty court, by whose name the text is known in China. The text's true authorship and date of composition or compilation are still debated, although the oldest excavated text dates back to the late 4th century BC.

App is a must buy

I own 7 versions of the Tao te Ching because each has unique interpretations. This has been a great addition to my collection and one of few apps I open daily.
Moreover, the developer has been providing fantastic updates which is rare in today’s mobile application world.

Oh and that WSJ reviewer needs to get over itself and stop being so politically childish. This app is GREAT!

This app is a lifesaver

I’ve been looking for an easy way to have the English translation of Tao Te Ching and this app has been by far the best way for me to find the sections I’m looking for ready and on hand.

Really appreciate that someone has gone through the work of translating this and creating such a user friendly version that I can refer to on a daily basis

The Wallstreet Journal

Good book, OK app

All pronouns are “she” because... virtue signaling?

I’d understand doing a mix, or maybe making it a setting where we could switch between the two genders, but it makes it more difficult to relate to

If they change this, I’ll change my review to full stars.
