About the Author:

Derek Lin has become one of the best-selling Taoist teachers and writers in America today. He was born in Taiwan and grew up with native fluency in both Chinese and English. This background lets him convey Eastern teachings to Western readers in a way that is clear, simple, and authentic. His previous books, including The Tao of Daily Life, The Tao of Success, and his own translation of the Tao Te Ching, have become category bestsellers. Lin offers a weekly lecture on the Tao that anyone can attend over the internet. Currently, he is the only notable author of the Tao to provide this level of access to the public.

Review:

Praise for Derek Lin’s books:
 
The Tao of Joy Every Day:
“The book offers up easily digestible wisdom for when you need a quick bit of inspiration. It is a great way to start the day, and it's small size makes it ideal for a nightstand book. It's short but powerful entries are great for settling the mind before bedtime, or on nights when you can't sleep. It's a great addition to any Eastern wisdom book collection.”
—The Buddhist Blog
 
The Tao of Daily Life:
Winner: Best Spirituality/ Alternative Science Book (The Coalition of Visionary Resources)

“This book has given me a large amount of understanding and inspiration in my own life. It is well written so that those of any religion (or lack of) can greatly benefit from its wisdom. I would put this book at the top of the list for anyone wanting to help move past the daily trivialities and frustrations that an inhibit our lives. This is also a perfect companion to applying the Tao Te Ching to the daily life.”
—Saint Monica’s Episcopal Church’s Book Corner
 
“The perfect book for readers who are interested in Taoism and want a little daily inspiration. The Tao of Daily Life combines ancient Eastern wisdom with practical application—perfect for busy Western readers!”
—Taoism
 
“There are some wonderful stories here! A top-drawer collection of Taoist teaching stories and commentaries on this ancient path.”
—Spirituality and Practice, “Best Spiritual Books of 2007”
 
The Tao of Success:
Winner: Best Spirituality Book (The Coalition of Visionary Resources)
 
“This book represents a melding of the best of eastern and western thinking.”
—Bill Tammeus, Faith Matters
 
 “A practical, systematic approach to the ancient and time-honored spiritual learning process. Using the same format that made The Tao of Daily Life a breakout Eastern wisdom bestseller, Lin draws on the power of Taoist stories to illustrate important keys, or lessons.’
—Taoism
