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

Happy 90th birthday (10/14/16), to one of the world's most beloved icons of literature, Winnie-the-Pooh! 

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.
Benjamin Hoff grew up in a rural area a few miles from Portland, Oregon. As a child, he preferred to spend his time outdoors, observing animals, insects, and plants. And from an early age he loved to write. He is also the author of the New York Times bestselling The Te of Piglet and The Diary of Opal Whiteley.

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.
