The Te of Piglet

Benjamin Hoff

★★★★

 

The Te of Piglet is Benjamin Hoff’s follow-up to The Tao of Pooh, with Piglet grabbing the limelight this time around.

Whereas Pooh was a perfect example of Wu Wei (effortless doing), Piglet is a perfect example of Te (Virtue). Although Piglet is small and often scared of people and things bigger than him, he has some special qualities — things like sensitivity, humility and compassion.

The book has ideas on how to make the most of those kind of virtues — using sensitivity in a positive way. Although Piglet’s sensitivity may make him anxious at times, it also has the potential to turn negatives in to positives.
