Publisher's Summary

The Dalai Lama's cat is back - older, a bit wiser, and as curious as ever.
In this audiobook, the Dalai Lama sets for his lovable feline companion the task of investigating the art of purring. Whether it's the humorous insights gained from a visiting Ivy League psychology professor, the extraordinary research of a world-famous biologist, or the life-changing revelations of a mystical yogi, His Holiness's cat encounters a wealth of wisdom about happiness. And what she discovers changes the way she sees herself forever.
With a much loved - and growing - cast of characters from the local community and His Holiness's residence, as well as encounters with intriguing strangers and celebrities from far and wide, The Art of Purring will transport listeners in another unforgettable story. Along the way they will come to understand how elements of contemporary science and Buddhism converge. And, once again, they will feel the warmth of compassion and non-attachment that radiate from the heart of the Dalai Lama's teachings about our quest for enduring happiness.

A wonderful sequel by a cat.

A wonderful sequel of the continued outlooks and adventures from His Holimess's Cat. I really enjoyed this fictional story that carries so much meaning and perspectives.

Great continuation of The Dalai Lama's Cat series

I love this series and have found all three books wonderful. This is Book 2, and continues where Book 1 left off. I adore the author's narration, although in general I don't think authors should narrate their own work. In this case, it works perfectly--I don't think anyone else could do justice to Michie's writing. (I am a bit of a sucker for the British accent, though, which might make me biased.)

The only caution I would give readers is that if you decide to listen to this series, do it in sequence, or you'll miss things you probably don't want to miss. Also, I buy and download the Kindle books and read and listen at the same time. Some books seem to lend themselves to that experience and some don't. In my opinion, these do.

I'm getting ready to listen to and/or read some of Michie's other work, like Hurry Up and Meditate, which I hope I enjoy as much as I have this series. He has a good-sized body of work, and I've just discovered he narrates some books by other authors. I'm currently studying Buddhist meditation in hopes of bettering my ability to meditate, and hope that his books will help toward this end.

Purrrrrrr

Would you listen to The Art of Purring again? Why?

I have listened to this book about 30 times. I enjoy the story, the learning's, the characters and the journey every time.

What other book might you compare The Art of Purring to, and why?

I have never read books that have hooked me the way these 3 have.

Any additional comments?

I fell in love with HHC and enjoyed visiting the Himalayan Book Cafe. The characters were fun and great to get to know and I always felt like I was there and like if I went there I would know exactly where to go to find the places mentioned in the 3 books.
