Had this in book form and loved it 20 years ago. It is even better in the audible edition! It will stay on my kindle and not get deleted. A perfect pick me up when you are having a bad day or a bad week. Highly recommended!
I love Sci Fi, science, nature, hiking, adventure and self improvement. Also, any good story will work as well.
I like philosophy, and the subject matter appeals to me. I may try to give it another listen, but I just could not absorb the messages the first time through. I had the feeling it was very pithy stuff, but I just couldn't seem to get into it. It did seem to get a bit better toward the end.
I didn't know much about Tao but I have loved Pooh and his friends since I was a young girl. LOVE how they matched the principles of Tao to all of the characters. It was amazing. I have listened to it several times.
Yes, I want to read more about Tao. The story at the beginning about the vinegar really made me feel I want to learn more about this specific way of thinking...taking in whatever happens and appreciating it for what it is.
yes, I have no idea how he linked in Pooh and friends to the Tao stories but did a great job!
Loved the narration.
This is one I will listen to again and again. I think it can help me relax, go with the flow and be a better person.
Frankly speaking, I am stunned. I have read Tao Te Ching, but barely understood anything, and this book came as a key for me. It actually inspired me not only to reread the aforementioned work, but also the adventures of the Pooh.
Nothing comes to mind really - I haven't came across anything like this before.
The final scene. Brilliant and captivating. In a sense nothing could possibly make a better culmination for this spiritual journey.
Laughed at lots of places.
I'd like to see more audiobooks by Benjamin Hoff at audible.com. So far this is the only work available.
It's short and the ideas within intriguing.
Pooh as portrayed in the book was great.
The different voices of the characters, it was entertaining.
Pie riddle really gets the point across, I think.
I go to sleep reading a book but I love to listen to them on my morning walk.
Brings a clear understanding of the Tao.
Brings the story to life
Understanding the Tao
Love Pooh, and the Tao of Pooh helped me understand why.

the rapid change of voice could have been handled better...
The ideas are good.
The author uses Eeyore as a straw man, as it were, but does not do justice to Eeyore's original character; he makes the character into something that fits his schema, but does not represent the original genius.
I have not read the print version but thoroughly enjoyed the audio version. Hit rewind multiple times to catch some great Ah Ha moments.
I'm very fond of the workings of the Pooh narratives so using this format to illustate Tao was a great idea.
I've listended to several books that he's narrated and I must say his calm, steady manner allows the listener to focus on the story and not the narration. Just as you have to use imagination to envision the print version, so to with this.
Oh my. There were so many that I couldn't pick just one.
Again loving to experience books in a new way. Audible form with my handy ipod has given me the ability to "read"
A joyful listen and should be a must read in high school. It seems so natural to use the Pooh characters to explain Taoist tenets. Pooh is the "effortless will do" character and unburdened by life especially it's surprises. In contrast, Owl and Rabbit with all their seemingly wise expertise just over-complicate matters while Eeyore's poor life view just inables him to live a joyful life, and of course, there is Piglet with heart and soul. I will listen to again and again. Strive to Live in Harmony
If you are curious about the Tao, this is an excellent introduction, because the explanations by analogy are so easy to relate to. It helps if you are a fan of Winnie the Pooh! but any true Pooh fan knows that Pooh is only a children's book on the surface...I have listened to many direct translations of the Tao, and other interpretations, but Pooh is by far the clearest....
