About the Author
Benjamin Hoff is an Oregon writer, photographer, musician, and composer with a fondness for forests and bears. When not writing, he practices Taoist yoga, T'ai Chi Ch'üan, stunt kite-flying, boomerang shaping and throwing, and Taoist tennis, whatever that is. He is the author of The Te of Piglet and The Singing Creek Where the Willows Grow: The Mystical Nature Diary of Opal Whiteley.

Simon Vance is an award-winning actor and an AudioFile Golden Voice with over forty Earphones Awards. He has won thirteen prestigious Audie Awards and was Booklist's very first Voice of Choice in 2008. He has narrated more than eight hundred audiobooks over almost thirty years, beginning when he was a radio newsreader for the BBC in London.

Reviews

"Vance demonstrates his great range, shifting easily from didactic sections of the book to fictional narrative and imbuing Milne's characters with distinct voices...This audio edition, due in large part to Vance's performance, is surprisingly engaging and accessible."

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred audio review)"

"Through brilliant and witty dialogue with the beloved Pooh-bear and his companions, the author of this smash bestseller explains with ease and aplomb that rather than being a distant and mysterious concept, Taoism is as near and practical to us as our morning breakfast bowl. Romp through the enchanting world of Winnie-the-Pooh while soaking up invaluable lessons on simplicity and natural living."

-- "Amazon.com, editorial review"

"Hoff explains the central tenets of Taoism and further illustrates them with familiar excerpts from The House at Pooh Corner stories, Chinese proverbs, maxims, and tales from Lao Tzu and others. The result is at once thought-provoking and charming."
