DescriptionWinnie-the-Pooh is 'The Bear for all Ages', and now he's more fun than ever before. Join in The Tao of Pooh and the Te of Piglet! Pooh's Way of doing things seems strangely close to the ancient principle of Taoist philosophy, while Piglet exhibits the very important principle in Taoism of the Te, meaning Virtue of the Small. The author's explanations of Taoism and Te through Pooh and Piglet show that this is not an ancient and remote philosophy but something that you can use, here and now.

Excellent, easy to read
Taoism concepts, to my own ignorent self, are usually somewhat esoteric, mystical or just generally hard to understand. This book, explaining the major concepts using familiar characters, is very helpful in developing that understanding. While it certainly won't replace the classic texts, it does certainly help to build your understanding by presenting the concepts in an alternative framework.
Also, personally, I feel that "Tao of Pooh" section was a lot more entertaining/interesting than the Te of Piglet. It's not the defame the latter, it is more that I thought the first book was more fleshed out in its concept. However, both are still compelling, and i'd still recommend reading both instead of just the one. by Iwan Juwono

"if you are looking for an entertaining read with something to set you thinking then i can strongly recommend this book. it uses the story and characters of Pooh to illustrate the philosophy of Taoism. It is easy to read, funny and makes you look at the world in a new and fascinating way. It is in my opinion in the top ten books you should read before you die! " by a Book Depository customer
