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 New York Times bestselling The Tao of Pooh and The Te of Piglet.

From Our Editors

On first glance The Tao of Pooh seems like a frivolous, irreverent look at a philosophy of life that goes much deeper than a 'bear of very little brain.' But that's just the point: Taoism isn't high strung or self important. Like Pooh Bear, it just is. Through an easy-to-read style that's based on A.A. Milne's famous children's books, Benjamin Hoff demonstrates just how much we can learn about this ancient way of thinking from the honey-lovin' bear. Painlessly and with a lot of humour you'll get a great introduction to Taoism that will open your eyes to its simplicity and beauty.
