Tony Soprano is a Mafia boss in New Jersey with two families -- his wife and kids on one hand, his Mob family on the other -- and he walks a fine line between the two. Time-honored traditions such as loyalty and duty coexist with illegal operations and violent crimes. The wife and children occupy the place of honor, but goomars (mistresses) also have their place. Tony is pushed and pulled from all sides -- no wonder he needs to see a shrink. There is a parallel to be found between the universe of Tony Soprano and the world of the ancient Chinese philosophy known as Taoism: the challenge of a man navigating through a life filled with contradictions and paradoxes. Loosely arranged according to principles found in the Tao Te Ching, the fundamental text of Taoism. The Tao of Bada Bing! Words of Wisdom from The Sopranos celebrates David Chases extraordinary series and the mysterious, ever-changing world that he and his brilliant team of writers have created. Book jacket.
