Quick, somewhat charming read wherein the basic concepts of the Tao are illustrated via tales pulled from the Pooh-centric books. Clever idea, works well, however, the author's skill does cause some confusion. Switching from author narrative to quoted Pooh text is clear enough, however, disengaging from the quote is sometimes often confusing. Some formatting choices cause confusion too such as when double spacing betwixt paragraphs should and should not occur. And for an uptick, original Pooh-story illustrations are used to great effect and supply a nice gentle glow to the work.

If you need something to read on the throne, are interested in Eastern thought, and can tolerate the occasional Oregon-author social/environmental/personal rant (which while valid ways to feel are wholly inappropriate and do not fit at all, not even a little, w/in the confines of this text), then this is a collection of paper you'll possibly enjoy.
