Benjamin Hoff, Author Dutton/Signet $ (p) ISBN Piglet shows the Way, turning his smallness into an asset and embodying Te. Now, as luck would have it, Pooh’s buddy Piglet turns out to be the perfect embodiment of Te, the Taoist term for virtue, which is attained. In this companion to his bestselling The Tao of Pooh, Benjamin Hoff uses the lowly and self-abnegating character from A. A. Milne’s classics to proclaim the.

Please try again later. And trust me when i say that I This book saved my life! When I read this book 12 years ago, I was able to quit heroin for good.

And trust me when i say that I was an addict of the hopeless variety.

The Tao of Pooh was awesome. It really helped me be content with where I am in life at the moment. It stresses a release from ego and being in touch with the flow of the world.


I am pretty new to the concept of Taoism, but the author presented it in an easy-to-follow way and put more emphasis on the philosophy part than the religious part. One common criticism is that it comes off as anti-intellectual at times.

I agree to an extent, but it is important to realize that being smart doesn’t instantly make your life better. There is no end to the pursuit of knowledge, and while science is a crucial part of modern life, it isn’t the key to happiness or a fulfilling life. I was introduced to this book as required reading for my yoga training certification. Not horf did I love the book, but have bought several as gifts since reading it. It was a very easy to read, light-hearted and humorous, yet also contained deep philosophical ideas.

The writing style is unique and entertaining and it is the perfect blend of entertaining and thought provoking content. As someone new to the ideas of Taoism, this book helps illustrate the major tenants in plain “layman’s terms” even I could understand. Would be a great book piblet the vacation reader as well as the scholar.


I think this book is suitable for readers of all ages, there is something to be gained for nearly every audience. I do not practice Taoism, however, the lessons in this book are applicable to nearly everyone living in our busy modern world. Definitely piglett great addition to your permanent library, I highly recommend.

I’m going through stage 4 cancer diagnosis shock and I find this book to be so comforting. Keep it simple and basic. Life is only as complicated as you let it benjsmin.

THE TE OF PIGLET by Benjamin Hoff | Kirkus Reviews

I pick this up frequently to read and ground myself. An absolutely delightful but deep translation of the Tao Te Ching. Benjamin Hoff puts the teachings into the world and characters of Pooh and brings a unique way to understand what can be very difficult teachings to understand. This is my third purchase of this book, I wore the other two tye.

It’s one of those books that you can read continuously, over and over, and keep learning new things every time. A calm bear is a happy bear.

There’s a reason this is a classic. This is Tao for everyone, or at least for me. It has a lot of good insight, and a lot of things to think about in life. Overall I’m glad that I read it but I did have quite a few issues with it as well.

The author very obviously does not like modern technology or the United States. And that’s fine, we do have a lot to work on. Not making great correlations. Also, he talks negatively about things like Burger stands in the United States and saying that, how in China they have tea shops where you can sit and talk and interact and be social and Europe they have coffee shops where you can sit and talk and interact and ye social, but in America we have Burger stands which force you to get in and get out quickly as possible.


As if we don’t have establishments in the United States where you can sit and talk and interact and be social, or that they don’t have fast food restaurants in China they get you in and out the door as quick as possible. As I said I do like the book, I do appreciate and think he points out a lot of great things. I did write down a lot of things and take my own notes on a lot of things that he discussed and overall I’m very glad that I read it and I’ll try to use the advice given.

Absolutely adorable books for someone who both loves children’s literature and philosophy. These books are filled with delightful little insights into the motivations behind Pooh and his friends, comparing the id and the ego of Hovf and Piglet while drawing comparisons from literature and schools of thought throughout the world.

If you’re a lover of literature or just curious about why Pooh Bear does what he does, this is definitely an excellent addition to your collection! See all reviews.
