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.
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.
Audible obsessed lifelong learner.
Proof that things are not always as simple as they seem. Hoff takes the beloved characters of Milne's beloved Pooh stories and focuses on the life lessons that parallel the Tao belief system. Reminded me of Ajahn Brahm's book "Opening the Door to You Heart" that teaches some Buddhist philosophy by simply telling stories that engage the mind and heart without directly asserting the belief system. In the Taoist tradition you come I with an open mind and fall upon the nuggets of wisdom due to not struggling to understand them.
I would have left Pooh alone, not make him a contributing character in the story. Could have been summed up by saying "Be more like Pooh."
No, just wasn't particularly impressed with this book.
To live, to love, to leave a legacy.
The narrator was absolutely perfect. Pitch, delivery, diction, transition were all perfect.
The analogies were numerous and incredibly thought provking.
No. First one.
Yes, I would have liked that
I never would have purchased this book had it not been $3.95 deal of the day thus leaving me to wonder how many other treasures like this one are out there. Thanks Audible keep the deals coming!
