Synopsis: Best-selling author Taro Gold's creation, The Tao of Mom, is a rare jewel of a gift book celebrating the timeless theme of motherhood with a daily dose of motherly wisdom.

In The Tao of Mom, author Taro Gold shares with us 365 rare and insightful quotations from mother figures around the world, revealing on each page the wisdom, courage, and compassion that define motherhood. Tao is a Chinese word meaning way or path. The Tao of Mom, then, is literally The Way of Mothers.

Many of the women celebrated in The Tao of Mom are well-known, while some are not; many hail from the West, yet all impart distinctly Eastern sensibilities. To further enrich our journey into the thoughts of each motherly figure, background details are included about each woman, such as Rosa Parks, mother of the modern civil rights movement; Aung San Suu Kyi, leader of the democratic movement in Myanmar; Maria Montessori, Italian educational reformer; and Abhirupa-Nanda, Indian poet-to name only a few.

Lavishly illustrated, this gem of a book is for you to give to the moms in your life, for moms to give to you, for everyone to give to dads (as a loving reminder of how wise moms can be), and of course for you to give to yourself. The Tao of Mom is for everyone in need of a daily dose of motherly wisdom, inspiration, and comfort.

From the Publisher: "The Tao of Mom" shares with us the wisdom, courage, and compassion of mothers across the globe. Tao, the Chinese word for path or way, also means wisdom, which fills each page. Author Taro Gold collected this treasury of 365 inspiring and thought-provoking quotes from both Eastern and Western moms, some from well-known mother figures, others from Taro's extended family tree. Also included are biographical introductions to the amazing women on these pages who have made the world a better place for all of us, including Indira Gandhi, Maya Angelou, Eleanor Roosevelt, Rosa Parks, Lady Shikibu, and others you may be meeting for the first time. This unique book is perfect for everyone in need of a little extra comfort, wisdom and inspiration.
