I will be very honest with you: I didn't finish this. I couldn't.

As someone who spent 6 years as an English major, I am all about drawing correlations between texts and building up an argument. I'm especially for the creation of really compelling arguments, ones that make you see texts in a whole new light. This book… definitely does that, though not in a way that I can take seriously. I honestly thought it was satire by page two. Is that too harsh?

Let's put it this way: I respect the author's
Kirjaa ei toki ole tarkoitettu otettavaksi mitenkään vakavasti, mutta en todellakaan näe tällaiselle hömpälle mitään tarvetta. Tuntuu, että kirjailija ratsastaa Milnen upeilla tarinoilla ja yhdistelee niihin löyhästi ties mitä taikauskoisia assosiaatioita, joita toki sopiikin asettaa naurunalaiseksi. Ongelma on vain siinä, että nauru on vähissä, Puh-lainauksia lukuunottamatta. Lisäksi pintapuoliset raapaisut eivät edes tuota tarpeeksi pseudotietoa kirjailijan tutkimuksista, mikä olisi voinut hie ...more

There's REALLY nothing to this. I thought when I picked it up at the book store it was going to be something like Tao of Pooh - boy, was I both wrong and disappointed. It's a bunch of non-sense that drones on without end (until you give up on it at least). I'm not buying the various Pooh characters are attached and driven by astrological signs no more than I think I am. Even for a New Age believer, this book is a long stretch on having any value. I'm surprised Milne's estate hasn't stepped in on ...more
This book was written by someone who obviously had too much time on his hands. As opposed to being a light, entertaining read, this book delves into the depths of Winnie The Pooh in ways you've never imagined. Even the illustrations of Pooh are spliced and picked apart as the author tries to proof that the dragonfly in a picture of Pook sitting by a pond is an astrological symbol. Honestly? Is this guy for real? Don't waste your time or be suckered in by the cute cover.
Only okay. Read The Tao of Pooh and The Te of Piglet instead.

Interesting read, projects Pooh Bear as the Great Bear, all knowing and full of wisdom based on his love of honey. Sounds good to me. anything golden, sticky and tasty has to be good.
