The wisdom of the simple minded, 12 Nov. 2007
The Tao of Pooh and Te of Piglet is an inspiring read, taking complex and often distant Taoist philosophy and bringing it into simple terms for the reader.
The book is throughout accompanied by a "feel good" comic aspect, with the author often adressing Pooh bear directly when explaining complex philosophical ideals such as "P'u"- the uncarved block.
This style of writing leaves it an attractive read to even those who prehaps rarley pick up a book, simply because of its playful nature, by bringing philosophy such as this in such simple terms to the western world Hoff has done what was thought impossible, combining the eastern, and western teaching in a, if not slightly odd, harmony.
