Here are some books that may be of interest. (sorry that I don't have much to say. . . lol)
Tao-Te Ching (The Main Book of Taoism, not the literal translation; just saying what it is) Click Part I or Part II to read them.
Art of War (If you haven't read this famous book before, here is your chance to read it.) I REALLY don't like the "verse" format. If anybody can find something without that format, please post it. It doesn't have anything to do with the fact that I'm Christian and am saying it is sacrilegious or whatever. . .it has to do with readability. I've read Art of War before without this format, and I found it much more readable. . .that's all.
The Book of Five Rings (A book written by an enlightened swordsman who has never taken lessons, and yet was highly skilled.) I like this translation. . . it even attempts to explain what the translator sees in the sleightly obscure text. Read it, it's cool.
When I think of any other books, I'll list them.

thank you most highly for posting these, I'm sure many members will benefit from it (and Iím personally quite pleased as I havenít read, and have wanted to for some time, the book of five rings)
from my own experience and what Iím told, they all really are must read books.
though admittedly, some may not find the same value in the The Tao-te Ching that they find in the less philosophical works.
