Born in small-town Texas during the Great Depression, Willie Nelson was raised to believe in helping his neighbors and living without pretense. After many hardscrabble years as a poorly paid songwriter (often watching his work become a gold mine for other performers), Willie finally found his own voice?the gentle but unmistakably honest sound that has made him an American icon. Now the master of harmonization has created a guide to finding harmony in everyday life.

The book "The Tao of Wilie" is quite an easy read - I finished it in a few days. It is full of mundane wisdom, that would be expected from such an everyday guy as Willie Nelson - a people's entertainer. And yet, there is something there that rises above the mundane, a sort of deeper understanding that transcends Willie's own character, or shall we call it a "stage persona", that of a traveling cowboy, outcast, pot-smoker and free roamer. That understanding, is what Willie calls simply "love". And that is something accessible to everyone alive. One doesn't have to spend years in a cave, detached from the societal affairs in order to understand that wisdom. Live by love, and you shall receive it in return. Easier said then done sometimes, but not impossible.

Willie himself can be considered a pretty successful individual. He has a ton of property, a large family, and a fan base that is more akin to the Grateful Dead following. He is a good businessman, asking his reader to check out his website, and is humble in introducing himself as a traveling singer, reminding those of us who don't have a detailed knowledge of his musical carrier about his more well known songs, as well as some of his albums that made an impact. I liked the fact that he is not bragging about the multitude of his musical accomplishments but kind of eases the reader into his world, that has been around for several decades. That is a good thing for a newcomer such as myself.

All in all, Willie is a heartfelt individual that has reached a respected age that deserves a book such as this one here. He has a lot to share, and it is ironic that all of that can be fit into such an easy and accommodating read. I think it can be counted as another one of Mr. Nelson's many accomplishments.

Checked this out at the library and had to have my own copy. Love this man. Grew up on his music, but now I'm reading about him as a person. Not only is does he have a great sense of humor, but what a kind, gentle soul he is. This book is about his philosophy of life and spiritual without being religious. I like that it is in 2-3 page 'chapters'. Puts me in a good mood when I read it and now have a copy on the coffee table to read while I'm having tea in the morning. Great starter to the day just to read a little here and there.

I absolutely loved this book by Willie Nelson. If you are a fan of his you can almost hear his voice and see his smile whilst you are reading. In the spirit of Tao I will not say that I wanted more but I will say that I will be reading this book more than once! I have been so inspired to be grateful for every moment. When I find myself wishing for things to happen and feel frustrated, I now stop and ask myself, "are you happy right now?" If not I change it, but usually I realize I am and that I am grateful for all the beautiful life that surrounds me. My family, friends, the beautiful place that I call home and that is enough for now.

I have pledged allegiance to Willie's flag for well over thirty years. That will continue, but never more so than the way I felt after reading his book. This book is categorized in the Self-Help section of any bookstore and here on Amazon.I have personally read as many self help books as I could get my hands on over the past 18 years not only to find myself but discover a new way to relate to this crazy world we live in. They have all made a difference in my life to live as one with every human on the planet. And to love each and every person I come in contact with. Never has this theory been more clear than in Willie's book. You don't have to be a fan of his, but my question has always been, why not? There has never been a musician alive that has given so much of his heart to people through his music and through his contact with everyone he meets more than Willie. I remember 28 years ago a died in the wool Baptist boss I had asked me if I believed in God. At that time it was still a question in my mind so I answered him in this way. "No, but I believe in Willie Nelson and it's all the same thing." Now I know that those were some of the truest words I have ever spoken. Like Willie I've studied every religion and culture known to man and found the same belief he has. We are all one. Our bodies die but our spirit lives on and we always get a chance in the next life. I have known in my heart for many years that Willie is the gentle spirit and has the open heart God has always wanted us all to be. God loves each of us the same, but it's up to us to "show up" in this life and share the same love that Willie shares with us all.Do I highly recommend this book? Absoloutely. It is a ten star book and one that will change your life or confirm what us lucky ones have known for so long.

Far better than you would suspect, extremely well put together and thought out book, started a bit unsure but it grew in strength as it went. I was very impressed with how Turk was able to organize Willie's thoughts and words... there were some really good points on living life and our world in general in this look. I look at this way this is Willie putting a book together like he would an album with a really fine producer.... that was lacking in the book after this one, Roll me up and Smoke me when i Die, in 2012 where he really seemed like he could of used Turk or someone to work with him.

I just finished reading the Tao of Willie, and loved it. Loved it so much that I felt compelled to place my first customer review on Amazon.

Basically, it is a great read. The body of the book is brilliant. Willie is very humorous and quite enlightening.

Word of warning: If you read some bad reviews; and you still buy the book because you need to spend a few more bucks to get free shipping {on a different purchase}, but you find the title irrestible, so you buy it anyway. Then you get the book and are turned off by the introduction; and then you're wondering should I invest any more time into to this deal. Well, my advice is to keep reading. After you get past the introduction, the book is fantastic.

I'll probably read it again. It did make my heart feel happier, and I suspect the second read might do the same. Thank you Willie!
