Author Khoo Boo Eng offers readers a simple, accessible resource for gaining a better understanding of Taoism with the publication of his new nonfiction book, “A Simple Approach To Taoism: Of Gods and Deities” (published by Trafford Publishing).
“A lot of the English speaking community (local and abroad) knows very little about Taoism, its culture and tradition,” Eng writes, “Even though Taoism is one of the five major religions in the world. This book is written in a vivid and alluring style.”
“A Simple Approach To Taoism” is just that: a book written in layman’s terms that covers the basic history, concepts and cultures of Taoism. Ideal for anyone seeking a better understanding of the rich cultures of the Far East, this book has unique appeal and offers a wealth of information.
