I recently saw a program about the Tao Te Ching that has led me to want to read the book. Upon searching, I've realized there are TONS of different translations. Can anyone recommend a good translation for a first read of the Tao?

I'm pretty sure this is the translation I have and it was great, in my opinion. If I remember, I will double check this for you later today. :)
