Deng Ming-Dao is the author of numerous books. Many have been translated into fifteen languages. Deng began his writing career with a trilogy based on the life of his teacher Kwan Saihung. His books include:
- Chronicles of Tao: The Secret Life of a Taoist Master
- Gateway to a Vast World
- Seven Bamboo Tablets of the Cloudy Satchel
- Scholar Warrior: An Introduction to the Tao in Everyday Life
- The Wandering Taoist
- Zen: The Art of Modern Eastern Cooking
Reading the books that Deng Ming-Dao has written has helped me to appreciate more deeply Taoist / Daoist thinking and philosophy as well as giving insights into the history and culture of China.
