Yes, to fine something I may have missed .
The teaching ,
He was perfect in all areas of this book BRAVO !
How would you spell 2uesday.?
It's in the top half.
Pooh, of course. He's the hero/role model.
Good use of character voices.
Had read this before at a Tai Chi retreat in UK, but had to listen again, and then I listened again then I let others listen, and then bought 3 of the Tao of Poohs paperpacks to send to friends. Life-changing in the best way.
I read this book years ago and found it interesting then. Know I find it enlightening. I sent a quote from the book to a teacher friend of mine who brags about all the papers they’ve wrote. What is the point of writing just to hear yourself talk? What is the point of writing to write what no one will read? That hit home with me and I changed the way I talk. I’m direct now with no beating around the bush and people like it. This is a great book for those starting out in Taoism or already on the path. I’m now waiting for the ‘Te of Piglet’ to come out on audible.
Was a very easy listen
I found that I'm very Pooh-esque
Very Casual reading style.
I learned that I should re-read the orignal Winnie the Pooh.
Yes, own both. The narrator did a great job by useing different voices and adding the right emphases when needed.
Remembering the stories from the movies and having them brought into the Tao.
Simple life, simple lessons
Loved this audio book, it is one of my all time favorites. One you can listen to more than once.
Simple sweet happiness
The sweet simplicity of how to live a happy, carefree life.
Simon Vance is my favorite narrator and what a plus to have one of my favorite books read by him. He so naturally adapts to each character with subtle changes of voice that make it seem as if a multitude of different characters are there speaking to us. Simply charming and whimsical.
This isn't a film sort of book.
I was so delighted that Benjamin Hoff's wonderful book has come out on audio with one of the very best narrators reading it. I bought the original paperback when it first came out in the early 90's and re-read it many times over the years. It is one of those books that you find different depths in each time you read or listen to it. It inspired the way I live. Meaning, my life is happy, simple, problem free and uncomplicated. You can't help but feel the calm center of yourself when you listen. I can't recommend it highly enough for anyone living in this busy, seemingly complicated world. It will take you back to those carefree years of childhood wonder and delight.
The book was well done with the reader doing the different voices for all of the characters. His voices were not perfect but they were a welcome addition to the book that I did not think it would be provided.
The story could have easily been told in 45 minutes but the book just keeps going. At first the points are bold and new and by the end the author had beat the ideas so far into your head that you wonder if he is going to touch on every story told in Winnie The Pooh. Don't let this turn you off from the book, just be aware that the author is going to make sure you completely understand the concepts being conveyed in the book.
I love the simpleness of the explanation of Tao, I love the characters
Pooh gets it
I love the way he read the characters, I was in the forest with them on their adventure, just like when I was a kid
No, I want to absorb and let each part soak in before moving on to the next
Short but worth it if you are open to it
The author kept an authentic feel to the Pooh characters (i.e. they stayed in character), so it was a wonderfully charming book, yet had interesting philosophical insights. Simon Vance, of course, did a fantastic job narrating.
Hard to pinpoint. I enjoyed the whole book. I did love the verbal interplay between Pooh and the narrator. Very funny.
He narrates wonderfully well, consistently in character. Just an exceptional narrator in everything that I've heard from him.
Pooh, a philosophical genius? It's true.
If you enjoy Pooh and that type of storytelling and British humor and/or you would be interested in a light-hearted review of the tenants of Taoism (philosophical Taoism, not specifically religious Taoism), you'll find this well worth your time.
