Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Meet Wilson the Pug, a dog with a great deal of wisdom to share. A much-admired spiritual teacher, Wilson lives by the principles of the Tao-te Ching, the ancient Chinese text on the art of living. Passed on through the generations from his ancestor, Pug-tzu—companion to the philosopher Lao-tzu, author of the Tao-te Ching—the wisdom of the Tao has helped Wilson to lead a simple, peaceful, and fulfilling life. Deciding it was time to share this spiritual knowledge, Wilson enlisted the help of his owner (and photographer), Nancy Levine, to bring you The Tao of Pug. Each photograph captures Wilson's charm and humor as he illustrates the timeless principles of the Tao-te Ching with examples from his active life alongside quotes from the original text. With his adorably expressive face, funny poses, and trademark yin-yang coat, Wilson has an unmistakable magnetism that has won him countless admirers, of all canine and philosophical persuasions. Wilson's comical lessons on life pair beautifully with Levine's delightful photographs to make The Tao of Pug a must-have book for pug lovers of any age.

Synopsis:

More than eighty black-and-white photographs complement a collection of Taoist wisdom and life lessons from the Tao Te Ching, as interpreted by Wilson the Pug.

Synopsis:

Wilson the Pug has a great deal of wisdom to share--he happens to be the descendant of Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu's beloved companion, Pug Tzu. A much sought after spiritual leader, Wilson decided it was time to put his knowledge into words with the help of his owner (and photographer) Nancy Levine.

Synopsis:

Wilson the Pug is the apotheosis of the breed dog lovers can't get enough of and can't buy enough books about. Irresistible goes without saying-but Wilson is also a descendant of Chinese philosopher Lao-tzu's beloved companion, Pug-tzu, and he has a great deal of wisdom to share as he exemplifies quotations from the Tao Te Ching. In The Tao of Pug his own everyday Taoist lifestyle is captured by Nancy Levine, his owner and a veteran dog photographer, in whimsical word and captivating picture. With his adorably expressive face, comic poses, and trademark yin-yang coat, Wilson's magnetism shows us the big, simple, profoundly spiritual picture through the eyes of a little dog. Pug-tzu, he reminds us, said, "A pug is a pug is a pug. I'm just me, Wilson the Pug. And I'm okay with that."

The Tao of Pug is a must-have holiday gift for the fanatic owners of pugs, for all dog lovers, and for any seeker of insight and humorous charm.
