Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Winner, Personal Development, 2013

Author Benjamin Hoff shows that the philosophy of Winnie-the-Pooh is amazingly consistent with the principles of Taoism and demonstrates how you can use these principles in your daily life.

Is there such thing as a Western Taoist? Benjamin Hoff says there is, and this Taoist's favorite food is honey. Through brilliant and witty dialogue with the beloved Pooh-bear and his companions, the author of this smash bestseller explains with ease and aplomb that rather than being a distant and mysterious concept, Taoism is as near and practical to us as our morning breakfast bowl. Romp through the enchanting world of Winnie-the-Pooh while soaking up invaluable lessons on simplicity and natural living.

While Eeyore frets and Piglet hesitates and Rabbit calculates and Owl pontificates, Pooh just is. And that's the clue to the secret wisdom of the Taoists.

The Tao of Pooh is an international bestseller and the first Taoist-authored book in history to appear on bestseller lists, it remained on The New York Times’ bestseller list for 49 weeks.

    "Wonderful Read -- accessible, simple and profound"

    This book delivers a powerful reframing of societal values and norms using a vehicle that makes the abstract concepts palatable: the parable. A great intro to Taoism and eastern philosophy.

    "A Brilliant Read, and Read Brilliantly!"
    Would you listen to The Tao of Pooh again? Why?

    I read this book twice, listened to the audio once, and on my second run. The simplicity with which the ideas were delivered make it so easy to understand and appreciate.

    "Simplicity"

    Basic ideas that people should hear, ponder and facilitate. I enjoyed this book and will probably listen to it again when I need a reminder. The narrator was good.

    "Little disappointing but fun"

    Entertaining and nice short intro to the dao but full of sweeping facile anti modern anti technology statements that have false premises.

    "One of my favourite books."

    I have read this book many times and was overjoyed to find it on Audible. And also with Simon Vance narrating, perfect.

    It's a good book to listen to when times are rough, or if one just wants to relax. The wisdom and humour is wonderfull. Many people should read this book, in the stressfull modern society of today.

    * Please excuse any spelling errors ;)
