The Tao of Mom

Synopsis of The Tao of Mom

(by Andrews McMeel Publishing)

Another of bestselling author Taro Gold’s beautiful creations, The Tao of Mom is a rare jewel of a book, celebrating the timeless theme of mothers’ love with a daily dose of inspiration.

In The Tao of Mom, Taro Gold shares with us 365 rare and insightful quotations from mother figures around the world, revealing on each page the wisdom, courage, and compassion that define mothers. “Tao” is a Chinese word meaning way or path. The Tao of Mom, then, is literally The Way of Mothers.

Many of the women celebrated in The Tao of Mom are well-known, while some are not. To further enrich our journey into the thoughts of each motherly figure, background details are included about each woman, such as Aung San Suu Kyi, leader of the democratic movement in Myanmar; Maria Montessori, Italian educational reformer; and Abhirupa-Nanda, the great Indian poet—to name only a few.

Lavishly illustrated, this gem of a book is for you to give to the moms in your life, for moms to give to you, for everyone to give to dads (as a loving reminder of how wise moms can be!) and of course for you to give to yourself. The Tao of Mom is for everyone in need of a daily dose of motherly love, wisdom and encouragement.

Printed on an array of brightly colored patterns, this palm-sized volume makes a lovely gift.” – Jana Reiss, chief reviewer, Publishers Weekly
