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 that 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.
About the Author
Benjamin Hoff grew up in a rural area a few miles from Portland, Oregon—at the opposite end of the valley in which Opal Whiteley wrote her diary. As a child, he, like Opal, preferred to spend his time outdoors, observing animals, insects, and plants. From an early age, he, too, loved to write. He is the author of the bestselling The Tao of Pooh and The Te of Piglet.

What People are Saying About This
"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
