This book is a sequel, in a sense, to THE TAO OF POOH. it is a much more linear exposition of Taoism, or rather the Taoist point of view. It explains this through the concept of TE (or Virtue, as it is commonly translated from the Chinese), in a more linear fashion, as TE is a more linear concept than that of the TAO (the Way). Piglet, from Milne''s stories, is a very small animal with a rather fertile imagination, but he is very shy and fearful, yet does not wish to appear so. Yet he learns, and grows, and sometimes winds up doing very brave things indeed, some that no one else could accomplish. There are a great many sayings and examples from the past, from both from Taoist and non-Taoist masters, as well as a few little stories, some about Pooh and friends. There is also an explanation of Taoism (or rather, several of them, pointing at the moon, so to speak), as well as examples, ancient and modern, of its application to life in all its aspects, including the military and political, as well as that of the more ordinary (and generally happier) individual life. But beneath all the seriousness, and best of all, this book is FUNNY.
