Description
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.
