This book could easily be called How My Cat Made Me A Better Person. The advice given could be used by any gender. A well written easily read book. It flowed from topic to topic with ease. Could not put it down. I am looking forward to more about Shelly

I liked How My Cat Made Me a Better Man. I found it also relates, in my case, to becoming a better woman. Even since I was a wee one, I've always lived with cats and I so appreciated Jeremy Feig's take on how his cat Shelly contributed to his own well-being. This is not a traditional self-help book, as it is very much Shelly's story told in an unconventional way. However, I enjoyed the dry humor and the insights into viewing life from the feline perspective on things. It definitely had me chuckling at some comments, and it got me to thinking about my some of my own issues too. Just taking the quiz, "What Your Cat Empathy Says About You," had me wondering if I viewed some of my fellow humans as cats, maybe I'd have more empathy for them as well.

Dare I say it? This was cute, sweet, and heartwarming. While it's categorized as a self-help book for guys (with cats, presumably), I'm not sure that many guys would utilize it as such (at least beyond junior high school), but it does remind us that we too often get bogged down in judgment, whining, and keeping up with the Joneses when we can easily make do with, and be thankful for, a place to sleep, a humble meal, and a spot of sun now and then. I enjoyed the friendly tone, the uncomplicated lessons, and the easygoing humor that flowed naturally. LibraryThing Early Reviewers free copy in exchange for my honest review.

"How My Cat Made Me a Better Man" by Jeremy Feig is a self-help book for guys. The author uses his experiences with his cat, Shelly, to illustrate life lessons on everything from daily grooming to finding someone to share your life. This book was definitely not written for me (not a guy), but I think a lot of the advice holds up for most young people starting out on their own. A lot of it is practical, common sense tips and it reads, I imagine, like an older brother talking to a younger brother. Some of the talk was definitely male-oriented, such as referring to women as "chicks" several times and talk of pub crawls. As a cat owner, I could identify with the "life with cats" side of the book. Cats have taught my own family plenty, like never leave your food or drinks unattended and put away your things if you don't want them scratched, full of hair, or broken. It was a decent book, and I say that as someone who is not crazy about self-help books. (I thought it would be a memoir.) Recommended for guys leaving home for college or cat guardians who need more help than their cats can give.
Not overly deep but so...
Not overly deep but some good entertainment value, especially if you are a guy with a cat. I wish there had been pictures of the cat, but the lessons therein are sound if simple. Definitely worth a read if you get it to review!
