Interesting read about Taoism (Chinese Philisophy), very light. Uses Piglet from Winnie the Pooh as a primary example of Te which is Viture.
Having read and enjoyed the Tao of Pooh, I was very disappointed with this book. It is more of a complaint about characteristics the author does not like in people than an informative discussion of Te.
Lovely and thought-provoking. A quiet yet compelling read.
from the back jacket:
The Te of Piglet ... in which a good deal of Taoist wisdom is revealed through the character and actions of A. A. Milne's Piglet. Piglet? Yes, Piglet.
For better than impulsive Tigger ... or gloomy Eeyore ... or intellectual Owl ... or even lovable Pooh ... Piglet herein demonstrates a very important principle of Taoism: the Te - a chineses word meaning Virtue of the small.
As always, a mind boggling experience of a book.
If you read the Tao of Pooh, this is a must have.
You really have to have liked the Winnie-the-Pooh style to like this book.
Such a wonderful look at Taoism & The world of Winnie the Pooh.
oh dont we just love little piglet ?
I really enjoyed the book. If anyone has read the Tao of Pooh this is a continuation of the idea. The author uses piglet and his personality and actions as metaphors for humanity.
