I like big books.

Tao of Pooh (Wisdom of Pooh)

The Tao of Pooh - Benjamin Hoff Far better than the subsequent follow-up book. I thought the organization of The Tao of Pooh was far superior than the Te of Piglet because of it's very clear focus on just a single taoist principle in each chapter. The illustrations Hoff draws on from the Pooh narrative fit perfectly and seamlessly into his broader discussions of wisdom and life-learning in ways that break apart in Piglet because of excessive political commentary. This book stays in the realm of the philosophical and practical and avoids too many side commentaries about shameful conservatives and environmental destruction. While these are certainly important issues that Taoist philosophy can address, it distracts from the overall wisdom being presented.

A great read!
