Humorous, simple, and profound, Do Nothing and Do Everything demonstrates the convincing usefulness of Taoism in contemporary society. Both an erudite writer and a philosophical illustrator, Qiguang Zhao has built three bridges in one stroke: the first between the ancient and the modern, the second between the East and the West, and the third between words and pictures. Once you open this book, you will be drawn across these bridges to a relaxing, comforting, and inspiring wonderland, where you will rest in nothing and fly in everything.
Kang Liu, Professor of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies, DukeUniversity
He may talk about doing nothing, but Qiguang Zhao seems to do everything, as he deftly weaves various strands of Eastern and Western wisdom. The result is a gem, worthy of interest to those inclined to think outside our ethnocentric boxes.
James F. Fisher, Professor of Anthropology Royal Thimphu College, Bhutan
Profound and practical wisdom springs to life in this insightful account of the ancient and ever-present Taoist teachings. Qiguang Zhao’s gift as a storyteller combines with his deep understanding of Taoist principles to make this book enjoyable and instructive.
