Official Synopsis from Goodreads: The Wisdom of Pooh.
Is there such thing as a Western Taoist? Benjamin Hoff says there is, and this Taoist’s favorite food is honey. Through brilliant and witty dialogue with the beloved Pooh-bear and his companions, the author of this smash bestseller explains with ease and aplomb that rather than being a distant and mysterious concept, Taoism is as near and practical to us as our morning breakfast bowl.
Romp through the enchanting world of Winnie-the-Pooh while soaking up invaluable lessons on simplicity and natural living.

Review: What a sweet, calming read! The Tao of Pooh by Benjamin Hoff is a cute, quick read. It talks about Taoism and how Winnie the Pooh exudes Taoist principles. I don’t know a lot about Taoism, and books with a philosophical leaning don’t normally interest me, but I read The Tao of Pooh in just a few sittings and was completely enchanted by it!
If you’re looking for a sweet read that urges you to simplify and have a more cheerful outlook on life, this is a great book! I am so glad that I read this, and look at the simplicity of Winnie the Pooh in a new way. There’s also another book by the same author with similar ideas called The Te of Piglet, and I’ve got a used copy of this one to read at some point.
Bottom Line: Sweet and enchanting.
