About the Author

Benjamin Hoff is a writer, photographer, musician and composer and a specialist in Japanese fine-pruning, with a degree in Ancient Art. A. A. Milne's creation, Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood, was based on the real nursery toys owned by his son, Christopher Robin. He produced a book of children's poetry, When We Were Very Young, in 1924, and in 1926, the seminal Winnie-the-Pooh. More poems followed in Now We Are Six (1927) and Pooh returned in The House at Pooh Corner (1928). Through his writings for Punch magazine, A. A. Milne met E. H. Shepard. Shepard went on to draw the original illustrations to accompany Milne's classics, earning him the name 'the man who drew Pooh'.

It's the two separate publications combined ... duh. I bought these way back when, so I have the separate harcover editions, but I bought this one as a gift for someone who had never read either. If your main purpose is reading and not collecting this is an inexpensive and simple way to get both in one shot. If you've never read them, well you must. No excuses. Whether you're interested in Taoism or not these books have some great little kernels of wisdom and truth for all beliefs and walks of life.

I've never been properly introduced to Taoism before, and I'm not even sure there is a "proper" way. All I can tell you about this book is it does a wonderful job of illustrating the principles of Taoism in a very easy to digest way. After reading it, I've found myself somewhat more relaxed, with more acceptance of the world as it is, and trying to work with it rather than against it.

Specific to this edition, I like that the two books are combined into one. I think they really do go well together, so combining them just makes sense.

I've read the Tao of Pooh a few times before, but I always seem to given away my copies. So, I thought I'd pick up both it and the Te of Piglet at once. I highly recommend them.

Would you like to have an understanding of the basics of Taoism? In the past have you browsed through the books on Taoism in Waterstones, read a few lines which made no sense at all and promplty returned the book on the shelf? Did you go as far as to actually purchase Lao-tzu's Tao Te Ching only to have it sitting on your shelf as an ornament, occasionally picked up, a few lines read and then promptly put back in-situ (maybe I'll read it another time)? But there is something inside you of course that wants to know more about Taoism, you have a deep rooted feeling that it will be good for you, almost as if your higher self is pushing you towards it. Well all is fine, you have been going with the flow recently, taking life as it comes and finding things a lot easier, and you have ended up here reading these reviews. You will notice that everyone has given 5 stars, of course they have, this is a delightful book. This is where you will get your first understanding of the principles of Taoism, of going with the flow, of the uncarved block, etc. The principles of Taoism here are put simply (which is always better). Gone are the abstract quotes (now what do they mean by this?). It's a delightful read, with the help of our friends from the 100 Acre Wood (even Eeyore has something important to teach us), wonderfully written by the sincere and genuine Benjamin Hoff. This isn't a guy who is in this for the money, he loves his Taoism, he loves his Pooh, and wants more people to benefit from the ancient chinese teachings. You so often read claims of books that will 'change your life' but they never really do. Well this one might, probably in a gentle subtle way to begin with (which is always better). You must be on your spiritual path to be considering buying this book. Should you buy it? Well, what does your intuition say?

Really, what's not to like. If you are a novice or just want a different sort of perspective, this combo book is a fun and quick read.

The text is lovely and reading it was a balm to my heart during rough times. Not new, but never out of date.

I read this book by reccomendation & it was worth every minute I spent reading it. It was easy to read & actually helped to make alot of sense on how easy it would be to implement Tao in one's daily life. If you're a person looking for something to make sense of chaos, or just want to enjoy a nice read on an alternate way of thinking and seeing the world I highly reccomend this book.
