Overview

For Taoists everywhere, the New York Times bestseller from the author of The Te of Piglet

The how of Pooh? The Tao of who? The Tao of Pooh?! In which it is revealed that one of the world’s great Taoist masters isn’t Chinese—or a venerable philosopher—but is in fact none other than that effortlessly calm, still, reflective bear: A. A. Milne’s Winnie-the-Pooh! While Eeyore frets, and Piglet hesitates, and Rabbit calculates, and Owl pontificates, Pooh just is.

And that’s a clue to the secret wisdom of the Taoists.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Vance demonstrates his great range, shifting easily from didactic sections of the book to fictional narrative and imbuing Milne's characters with distinct voices. . . . This audio edition, due in large part to Vance's performance, is surprisingly engaging and accessible." —-Publishers Weekly Starred Audio Review
