For Taoists everywhere, the New York Times bestseller from the author of The Te of Piglet.
Happy 90th birthday (10/14/16), to one of the world's most beloved icons of literature, Winnie-the-Pooh!
The how of Pooh? The Tao of who? The Tao of Pooh!?! In which it is revealed that one of the world's great Taoist masters isn't Chinese--or a venerable philosopher--but is in fact none other than that effortlessly calm, still, reflective bear. A. A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh! While Eeyore frets, and Piglet hesitates, and Rabbit calculates, and Owl pontificates, Pooh just is.
And that's a clue to the secret wisdom of the Taoists.
About the Author
Benjamin Hoff grew up in a rural area a few miles from Portland, Oregon. As a child, he preferred to spend his time outdoors, observing animals, insects, and plants. And from an early age he loved to write. He is also the author of the New York Times bestselling The Te of Piglet and The Diary of Opal Whiteley.
The world is everchanging and sometimes, not for the better, unfortunately. With the new eBook partnership, Books on First and IndieCommerce regret to announce that customers are unable to use your Books on First giftcards to buy ebooks online.
You can still buy titles in other formats (hardcover, paperback, audio CDs) with a Books on First gift card as well as buy a Books on First giftcard which we will send especially to that lucky recipient (free postage!) who can use it with us online (for everything but ebooks) and in-store.
More than a card.
More value than many other store-bought surprises
(except a book!)
Put a 3D paper sculpture in a loved one's hands and see the spontaneous delight.
That's a lovepop.
What are you thankful for?
