Knowledge is power, and author Pamela Metz takes you on a journey well beyond the learning curve in this book. Not only does The Tao of Learning focus on the student, but it also showcases the teacher. This adaptation of the Tao Te Ching discusses phases of intellectual growth and how to attain and retain knowledge.

This book shows you how to express, receive, and consider knowledge. The Tao provides ancient wisdom, and Metz adapts it to the learning process. This timeless guide addresses the essential roles of teaching and learning with profound insight. The Tao of Learning means how things happen through experience.

Some teaching methods include hands-on, visual, or oral, and their effects differ among individuals. The Tao of Learning offers a non-traditional view of various teaching methods and understanding concepts. Metz, through Taoism, seeks to inspire and nurture both students and teachers in this spiritual book. Acquiring knowledge goes hand-in-hand with life and does not always take place in a traditional classroom. The Tao of Learning has the insight to stir up awareness and see experiences that have opportunity and wisdom.
