The Little Book of Bob

Life Lessons from a Street-Wise Cat

Disclaimer - This is Not a Romance Genre Book

By James Bowen

St. Martin's - October 2019


If you haven't met Bob previously, then you should know that Bob is a cat, and James Bowen is his human. They met when James was turning his life around. Having lived on the streets and been an addict, James was making a new life for himself. Then Bob showed up, people took notice, James wrote a book, and there was even a movie. You don't need to have read the previous books, but it is good to know their background. This book can easily be a favorite of both Bob fans and new readers.

In The Little Book of Bob, James Bowen provides bits of wisdom, and then tells examples of how Bob exemplifies them. They are really small tidbits of Bob and James's life, and includes anecdotes from when they first met, to experiences while filming. The references to time on set were highlights. It is a charming little book that one can pick up and read a segment or two at a time. Rather like a Bob's moment of insight and wisdom.

I have listened to both A Street Cat Named Bob and The World According to Bob and those contained longer stories of their experiences. That is not the intention of this book. A philosophy is given, and then a snippet of how Bob displays that. This is showing that perhaps Bob has the best strategy in life, and why.
