Tao of Pooh (Wisdom of Pooh)

The Tao of Pooh - Benjamin Hoff Always been partial to a little Taoist thinking, and this has been written in a very accessible and entertaining way. I wondered if it might beat me at first when I realised I hadn't read any of the actual Winnie the Pooh books, but of course it makes no difference where this is concerned.

Needless to say, this book attempts to explain how we can bring the methodology of the Tao into our everyday lives in order to improve our lives in every way imaginable and thereby live the lives we were supposed to live instead of the lives many, if not most of us find ourselves living.

If I have one criticism of nearly every spiritual manual I've ever read, it's that it all seems so approachable and doable on paper... until you come to bring it into your own life. But I suppose there's only so much a book can do, the rest is really up to us. But this book at least tries to get around that by bringing it all down to earth using a well loved children's character, or characters. I liked it. I wish I could say it's going to succeed where all the rest have failed but I doubt that's going to happen. It is making me want to try though, so that's a big plus in its favour.

very good. I read it in one sitting which is always a good sign. Definitely the sort of book to be re-read, over and over. Highly recommended.
