I bought this book for my boyfriend and I ended up reading it too. It was pretty funny at times -- especially the part about the author's cat becoming crazed over Chicken McNuggets. There were a bunch of fun cat anecdotes, with each one tying in to the self-help advice in that particular chapter. Much of the advice was about simplifying your life and doing what makes you happy, that sort of thing. Very positive. I really think it could be helpful for anyone, not just men. Overall, this was a fun entertaining read.
Valuable and funny insights into human and feline behavior. I must start off by saying I am not a cat lover. But my wife is and she suggested I read this. I am still not a cat lover but this book gave me more of an open mind because the cat stories were funny and the author related the book to how it helped his growth. Although I'm not prone to taking the advice of a cat, it did make me more self aware. An interesting read and a novel take on human behavior
