    MOBI Benjamin Hoff ☆ MOBI The Te of Piglet PDF Û The Te Epub / ☆ s2baby.co piglet pdf, The Te book, The Te of Piglet ePUBI only made it about half way through this book and that was a struggle I continued only because I had such fond memories of The Tao of Pooh In my opinion this is not a worthy seuel All the sweetness and warmth of the first book the Mile esue style of writing is gone So too is much discussion of Taoism and even of Piglet for that matter Rather it seems a soapbox for the author's disillusionmentdisgust with Western culture Would have been much effective if he kept the focus on Taoism's good points rather than using so much ink slamming the West

    MOBI Benjamin Hoff ☆ MOBI The Te of Piglet PDF Û The Te Epub / ☆ s2baby.co piglet pdf, The Te book, The Te of Piglet ePUBAfter enjoying Benjamin Hoff's Tao of Pooh with its delightful introduction of Taoist ideas using the classic AA Milne characters I approached the rather thicker Te of Piglet with gleeful anticipation Alas if only the book were thinnerThere are still the interactions albeit somewhat less adorable with the denizens of the Hundred Acre Wood but they are nearly suffocated by lengthy broadsides against all sorts of political targets from anti Environmental Business to Technology from Scientists to Western Medicine And while I am not at all opposed to the notion of screeding to one's heart's content the avalanche of Haughty Thoughts seems entirely out of place given both the first book and the greater PoohniverseOf particular oddity was his railing against

    MOBI Benjamin Hoff ☆ MOBI The Te of Piglet PDF Û The Te Epub / ☆ s2baby.co piglet pdf, The Te book, The Te of Piglet ePUBI wanted to like this book I remember enjoying The Tao of Pooh and I naturally figured this would be a companion piece in the same vein However in the ten years that passed between that publication and this one Benjamin Hoff seems to have grown into a grouchy cantankerous old man decrying the y

    MOBI Benjamin Hoff ☆ MOBI The Te of Piglet PDF Û The Te Epub / ☆ s2baby.co piglet pdf, The Te book, The Te of Piglet ePUBThis is like night and day compared to the Tao of PoohTao of Pooh alternated between scenes from Pooh and Hoff's explanation of what that meant in Taoist terms The Pooh scenes really helped illustrate what he was discussing The Te of Piglet consists of exposition about the concept of Te and Taoism in general There's very little effort made to tie it back to Piglet and the other Pooh characters and uite a bit of political rantingThe few points he tried to make about Piglet he'd already made in the Tao of Pooh complete with the same examples from the same stories There's very little Piglet and an abundance of Hoff's own opinions on how TaoismBuddhism relate to modern society He discusses everything from feminism being horrible to smoking to farming and fertilization practices to the evils of radiation and therefore modern electronicsWhile I agree with some of the points he made I didn't pick up the book to read

    MOBI Benjamin Hoff ☆ MOBI The Te of Piglet PDF Û The Te Epub / ☆ s2baby.co piglet pdf, The Te book, The Te of Piglet ePUBAt first I enjoyed it for what I was learning about Chinese philosophy But then he gets very political about current events in 1992 which while also being outdated now are not as relevant to the timeless themes he is discussing as he would think He gets on his soapbox about his personal views which I also see as off target and an annoyance I wanted to read about Te and it’s relationship to Piglet not on how he feels all the past presidents have overlooked environmental protection Actually if he simply mentioned that it wouldn’t be so bad But he gets on such a str

    MOBI Benjamin Hoff ☆ MOBI The Te of Piglet PDF Û The Te Epub / ☆ s2baby.co piglet pdf, The Te book, The Te of Piglet ePUBThe book is supposed to demonstrate how Piglet in the original AA Milne writings personified Te or 'Virtue in Action' To illustrate this the author wrote a bunch of new situations for Piglet Which defeats the entire purpose since it forces Piglet into the mold for the philosophy instead of showing how he already conforms to itThe author also spends a lot of time explaining how the world is in poor shape due to the Eeyores who complain about how the world is doomed instead of seeing things as they really areHe then writes a final chapter explaining how the world is doomed and everything is going to fall apart and Western Civilization sucks and there's no hope for anything and if only people had listened to T

    MOBI Benjamin Hoff ☆ MOBI The Te of Piglet PDF Û The Te Epub / ☆ s2baby.co piglet pdf, The Te book, The Te of Piglet ePUBThis book is about 100 pages give or take larger than the first book on the subject matter by Hoff The Tao of Pooh While explaining the principles of Taoism through stories from AA Milne and crafting new dialogue for the characters still works it is far less a part of this book than the previous In fact this book tends to go off into explanation far than crafting examples using the characterBut the single unforgivable part of this book is the large amount of soap box talk the author throws in to the book He has a clear stance on government and social issues going on at the tim

    MOBI Benjamin Hoff ☆ MOBI The Te of Piglet PDF Û The Te Epub / ☆ s2baby.co piglet pdf, The Te book, The Te of Piglet ePUBAfter reading this book I cannot look back at The Tao of Pooh without thinking of Pooh an unthinking dimwit The author Hoff tries to explain living with virtue and in harmony with the natural world or Te Hoff does a good job of using previously written works to illustrate his points but comes short when using Milne's characters In fact as the book went on I began to dislike the character of little PigletMy major gripe with this book is that Ben Hoff decided to pull out his soapbox and get all spill his personal politics all over his book's information I ended up skipping pages to get past Hoff's tirades on how we should live in sod houses eating only the twigs and berries that grow on our front lawns and how all the world's problems would be solved by sitting in a drum circle or hunger strikes hoping the rest of the world notices a la GandhiI can't be receptive to do go
