The Tao of Cleaning by A. W. Ku
The Tao of Cleaning  by A. W. Ku

When one of A. W. Ku's sons asked how he could keep his apartment clean, she responded with this small book. Inspired by Lao Tzu's classic Tao Te Ching, this book is a compressed discussion of a problem that has plagued mankind since the beginning of civilization: cleaning.

The Tao of Cleaning spotlights the angst associated with this dreaded activity, shares the secrets of how to deal with procrastination and avoidance of the myriad tasks that mount each day, introduces a disciplined mind-set while encouraging balance and flexibility in the daily routine, and asks questions that each person can best answer individually.
"At first glance, this book might seem to be another attempt to popularize Taoism with little grounding in experience or tradition. Further reading quickly reveals many layers of meaning and the author's own insights. If one takes the time to look at the choice of Chinese works and their juxtaposition with the titles and the commentary, there will be much from which to learn. Ms Ku wrote this book in response to the lament of one of her sons. Mother, it seems is still right."
-- Deng Ming-Dao, author of Scholar Warrior

A. W. Ku is a designer and space planner who has wrestled with the problems of maintaining a household while raising a family and working. She has always done her own cleaning.
