It is a universal truth that Winnie-the-Pooh is among the most important beings of the 20th century. His influence on Western philosophy and on Eastern thought has been well documented. In this witty, scholarly book, John Tyerman Williams sees the dawning of the new millennium as a moment for a major revelation: At the heart of the Ancient Mysteries sits Winnie-the-Pooh. In astrology, alchemy, the interpretation of the taroteven Arthurian legendthe scope of Pooh's influence far exceeds what even his most ardent admirers have heretofore believed. The arguments are amusing and irrefutable. This entertaining volume makes it clear that the World of Pooh is spiritually and mentally infinite, equal in stature to the great mythical worlds. It is a Very Comforting Thought to have as we meander through the Hundred Acre Wood, right into the 21st century.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book touches the deep insights of the world of Winnie-the-Pooh and everything in it. It also relates it to many serious, adult, and mystical subjects everyone has questions about. Which seems odd for a story made for children. It also helps parents get to know the characters their children love, at there own level.
