For such a small book about Taoism and Pooh, it is filed with so much insight and meaning. I really enjoyed reading Hofff's ideas and explorations through the funny little world of pooh bear and the connections it has with taoism.

Before reading this book, I knew Pooh but didn't know Tao. --- From that perspective, I'm not sure it entirely does justice to Pooh, because it puts a frame on Milne's stories that doesn't quite fit; it reinterprets them to suit Hoff's ends and misses the meaning and fun I took from them in my reading. --- It seems, though, without knowing more to judge by, a decent introduction to Tao. I feel I have a basic idea what it is, at least, and a simple concept to associate with the word when I hear it used. --- Most importantly, I'm intrigued and would be interested in learning more.
