“This book is very interesting, it can inspire the reader, and the sincere seeker of the Dao. The book written by an authentic Daoist teacher is easy to read, the author has great ability to do touching the reader with his own hand the experiences he describes. The many insights and inspirations offered by the reading will always be with the sincere seeker up to the realization of “Not Two”, the Whole Unity.” Alberto P.
