I do not understand this phrase, which is actually the title of the book. Taoism: Way Beyond Seeking. Is it "more than seeking" or something else?

The phrase is deliberately ambivalent, for the effect of a word play. The word "way" can mean path, direction, system, or process, or it can mean excessively. It is an especially witty title because it illustrates a Tao virtue of economy of expression.

Rephrasing both meanings, we have to use more words:

Taoism is a path for you to overcome your spiritual seeking.

Taoism is so much more than seeking spiritual meaning.
