FROM THE PREFACE TO RUSTING: The muse has been my faithful companion for most of my life. I believe that writing is an important act, and I have found writing — particularly poetry — is a path to wellness. I give you these poems as life lessons. I am not just writing poems, I am fostering empathy. These poems are the closest I can come to a survival guide. —David B. Axelrod

CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR ANOTHER WAY
Another Way is very readable, filled with insights and wisdom that fully deserve to be regarded as a Daoist sensibility with a modern poetic voice. Dr. Chad Hansen, Chair Professor of Chinese Philosophy, Hong Kong University and author of A Daoist Theory of Chinese Thought.
Another Way works well on a number of levels—as advice for daily life; as poetry, and as a pleasing modern turn on ancient wisdom. Overall, it is a lofty vision—one which would be beneficial to anyone who reads it. Swami Anand Veetkam (Dr. Robert Schenck, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist)
David Axelrod, in Another Way, based on the Tao Te Ching, has come up with a most novel and compelling take on the great Taoist classic. The writing throughout is rightfully natural and full of surprises. Lucien Stryk, poet, translator of Chinese and Japanese Zen poetry.
David Axelrod’s Another Way is a wonderful, distinctly American treatment of the ancient Taoist classic. His skills as a poet are clear, and his understanding of the philosophy is remarkably strong. Master Tseng Yun-Xiang, Taoist Priest and Director of the Chinese-American Enrichment Association.
