5.0 out of 5 stars An Essential Purchase, 28 Jun 2009
This review is from: The Te of Piglet (Wisdom of Pooh) (Paperback)
The Te of Piglet, by Benjamin Hoff was released in 1992; a whole decade after his previous critically acclaimed work entitled The Tao of Pooh.

The Te of Piglet is not intended as a sequel to Hoff's 1982 introduction to Taoism but is instead considered by the author to be a companion book. The aim of this story is to study some ideas that had not been covered in greater detail in the previous outing whilst at the same time trying to reinforce some of the ideas that had been established.

The Te of Piglet, as the title would suggest, utilizes Piglet a character from A. A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh to convey the principles of Te, the Chinese word meaning power and virtue.

The Te of Piglet lacks the almost whimsical nature of The Tao of Pooh but is an equally entertaining and significantly important piece of literature none the less. The book approaches many topics that are relevant in today's society and attempts to give the reader the opportunity to view them in a new light.

The Te of Piglet is a fantastic read and the most important book I have read since Daniel Quinn's Ishmael.
