People are still reading a book written 2,500 years ago. But the Tao Te Ching can be dense and difficult to understand in today's world, where the time to let its lessons soak in can be lacking.
Francis Pring-Mill addresses the concern in the book In Harmony with the Tao: A Guided Journey Into the Tao Te Ching.
Pring-Mill's book includes a complete and well-regarded English translation of the Tao by Stephen Mitchell, along with some guidance to understanding the meaning.
