I often tell people to read Tao of Pooh first. Just read and absorb. Don't take notes or anything. Same with the Te of Piglet.

Then, once they've seen the beauty, delve into the more introspective works like Lao-Tzu's tome.

Ah, the Tao of Pooh and the Te of Piglet. How I remember those books, well. I first started reading the Tao Te Ching in high school, which was fairly daunting at the time. When I read the Tao of Pooh and Te of Piglet, I understood it a lot better, especially the part about the uncarved block. Definitely a recommended read! :)

Oh, yea! I the uncarved block is one of my favorite parts! Probably a close second to the Pooh Way (Wu Wei Wu)
