'Smart ... views our western tradition entirely differently' - Sunday Times

The first book of its kind, The Path offers a profound guide to living well. It reveals for the first time how the timeless wisdom of ancient Chinese philosophers can transform the way we think about ourselves.

The Path makes this largely unknown body of thought accessible to everyone for the very first time.
