Some brief overview of this book

The Tao Te Ching, Daodejing, or Dao De Jing (simplified Chinese: ???; traditional Chinese: ???; pinyin: Dàodéjing), also simply referred to as the Laozi (Chinese: ??; pinyin: Laozi), is a Chinese classic text. According to tradition, it was written around 6th century BC by the sage Laozi (or Lao Tzu, Chinese: ??; pinyin: Laozi, literally meaning Old Master), a record-keeper at the Zhou dynasty court, by whose name the text is known in China. The texts true authorship and date of composition or compilation are still debated, although the oldest excavated text dates back to the late 4th century BC.

The text, along with the Zhuangzi, is a fundamental text for both philosophical and religious Taoism, and strongly influenced other schools, such as Legalism, Confucianism and Chinese Buddhism, which when first introduced into China was largely interpreted through the use of Daoist words and concepts. Many Chinese artists, including poets, painters, calligraphers, and even gardeners have used the Daodejing as a source of inspiration. Its influence has also spread widely outside East Asia, and is amongst the most translated works in world literature.

The Wade–Giles romanization Tao Te Ching dates back to early English transliterations in the late 19th century; its influence can be seen in words and phrases that have become well-established in English. Daodejing is the pinyin romanization.

He is best known as the reputed author of the Tao Te Ching and the founder of philosophical Taoism, but he is also revered as a deity in religious Taoism and traditional Chinese religions. Although alegendary figure, he is usually dated to around the 6th century BC and reckoned a contemporary of Confucius, but some historians contend that he actually lived during the Warring States period of the 5th or 4th century BCr compilation are still debated, although the oldest excavated text dates back to the late 4th century BC.
