The Tao Te Ching has achieved this rare renown, influencing countless changemakers and leaders throughout history. A leader will be faced with all kinds of challenges, some unforeseen. These texts emphasize that the best way to command or sway others is through a prudence that does not always err on the side of leniency or severity, but rather on that of knowledge and flexibility. Along with strength of character, an effective leader also possesses the ability to adapt and therefore to take informed, needful, and decisive action. Both Taoism and Machiavellianism note that personal development and, by extension, business management are essentially careful thought followed by swift action. Unique among large print inspirational books for women and men, large print classic books (particularly large print philosophy books) and large print history books for seniors and younger adults as well as children, Tao Te Ching is essential reading for all interested in important and influential philosophical texts. Lao Tzu was an ancient Chinese philosopher and writer born in the 6th-5th century BCE, reputed author of the Tao Te Ching (published 6th Century BCE) and founder of the School of the Tao or Taoism. The main source of information on Lao Tzu's life is a biography written by the historian Sima Qian (145-86 BCE), where he referred to earlier accounts, such as one noting that Lao Tzu was a contemporary of Confucius. However, some scholars doubt the historicity of Lao Tzu, and so his life, if he existed, remains shrouded in mystery.
