The how of Pooh? The Tao of who? 'The Tao of Pooh'!? in which it is revealed that one of the world's great Taoist masters isn't Chinese? Or a venerable philosopher? But is in fact none other that that effortlessly calm, still, reflective bear. A. A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh! While Eeyore frets? and Piglet hesitates? and Rabbit calculates? and Owl pontificates? Pooh just is. And that's a clue to the secret wisdom of the Taoists.
