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....
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.
Say something about yourself!
I had heard whispers that this book was nothing short of amazing. Turns out, the rumors are true! This book delivers profound Eastern thought in the form of Winnie the Pooh, as told in the style of Milne's classic tale and referencing it heavily. I was amused and sent gliding into sheer appreciation of this work that, quite frankly, words can't really do justice. This book has to be experienced.
As always, Simon Vance delivers a performance, and while I'm continually impressed by the dignity he brings to his narrations, I feel like he captured most of the voices dead-on perfectly right out of my childhood, and for those few he didn't, he came really close. His performance as Pooh is otherworldly good, and all of his characters help to drive the messages home in a way that is guaranteed to live in your heart for a long time to come.
Audiobooks are the bacon of literature.
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.
If you are curious about the way of the taoist....then is exactly what you're looking for.😊
