Forlagets beskrivelse

Penguin presents, the unabridged, downloadable, audiobook edition of The Path by Professor Michael Puett and Christine Gross-Loh, read by Professor Michael Puett. Harvard's most popular professor explains how thinkers from Confucius to Zhuangzi can transform our lives The first book of its kind, The Path draws on the work of the great but largely unknown Chinese philosophers to offer a profound guide to living well. By explaining what these teachings reveal about subjects from decision-making to relationships, it challenges some of our deepest held assumptions, forcing us to unlearn many ideas that inform modern society. The way we think we're living our lives isn't the way we live them. The authors show that we live well not by finding ourselves and slavishly following a grand plan, as so much of Western thought would have us believe, but rather through a path of self-cultivation and engagement with the world. Believing in a true self only restricts what we can become - and tiny changes, from how we think about careers to how we talk with our family, can start to have powerful effects that will open up constellations of new possibilities. Professor Michael Puett's course in Chinese philosophy has taken Harvard by storm. In The Path, he collaborates with journalist and author Christine Gross-Loh to make this timeless wisdom accessible to everyone for the very first time.

This commentary is for the audio version of the book. after having listening to Harari's sapiens book, this book does not entail that much profound wisdom, though this books summarises neatly ways of thinking and living from earlier civilisations. I find the reader voice to be too deep in order to hear and understand the content correctly, it simply does not catch one's attention.I would rather recommend reading the book than listening to it.
