I presume you mean the Tao Te Ching?

The translation by Red Pine (the nom de plume of Bill Porter) is excellent IMO. His translations of Chinese zen poetry are great too. A generally all round cool dude

Hi Oisin, yes I mean the Tao Te Ching.
Based on a short wiki-read, Red Pine sounds interresting as well.
Do you know if there excists a "Cannonised / Officially acknowledged version" in english / american as well or is this the one, Red Pine I mean ?
