The Tao of Pooh by Benjamin Hoff


Summary of The Tao of Pooh by Benjamin Hoff: The Tao of Pooh by Benjamin Hoff is a perfect introduction to the ideas of Taoism as illustrated by an unaware Taoist, Winnie the Pooh. Using Winnie the pooh books, Benjamin Hoff shows the practical application of the taoist philosophy. reveling answers to difficult concepts like, 'doing without doing' and the 'uncarved block'.

My take

"Lots of people talk to animals," said Pooh.
"Not that many listen though."
"That's the problem."

Interesting insights. I have always loved Pooh bear so a philosophical slant of Pooh lends to interesting reading! I knew that Pooh was more than a children's character, he always had a certain wisdom about him which makes him endearing to both kids and adults.
