Winnie-the-Pooh has a certain Way about him, a way of doing things that has made him the world's most beloved bear. In The Tao of Pooh , Benjamin Hoff shows that Pooh's Way is amazingly consistent with the principles of living envisioned by the Chinese founders of Taoism. The author's explanation of Taoism through Pooh, and Pooh through Taoism, shows that this is not simply an ancient and remote philosophy but something you can use, here and now.

And what is Taoism? It's really very simple. It calls for living without preconceived ideas about how life should be lived--but it's not a preconception of how life--it's.... Well, you'd do better to listen to this book, and listen to Pooh, if you really want to find out.

Not what I was looking for: rather entertaining, than informational

Before reading this book, I knew Pooh but didn't know Tao. --- From that perspective, I'm not sure it entirely does justice to Pooh, because it puts a frame on Milne's stories that doesn't quite fit; it reinterprets them to suit Hoff's ends and misses the meaning and fun I took from them in my reading. --- It seems, though, without knowing more to judge by, a decent introduction to Tao. I feel I have a basic idea what it is, at least, and a simple concept to associate with the word when I hear it used. --- Most importantly, I'm intrigued and would be interested in learning more.
