The Chuang Tzu(Zhuangzi)is one of the most justly celebrated texts of the style,it has been a challenge for centuries to the bestminds in the Far East,and has usually captivated even those it could not convince.
  ——Wm. Theodore ae Bary East Asian studies expert at Columbia University
The Book of Zhuangzi is one of the most entertaining as well as one of the profoundest books in the world.
  ——Arthur Waley English orientalist and sinologist
If all the Chinese poets,painters,and writers who ever lived were queried and asked to name one book of their favorite reading,the nomination would certainly go to the writings of Chuang Tzu.
